Next week is our annual family camping trip. This year my husband and I have rented a nice large trailer in a family campground, air conditioning and a pool, my kind of camping LOL ;) In the past these trips have centered heavily on good food with lots of snacks, smores and treats. I am planning on eating at maintenance for the week (Monday - friday afternoon) and I will be staying fairly active with all the swimming and walking. I don't plan on officially calorie counting and logging but I will be mindful of my foods. This will be my first real test and I am a little nervous but I think I can do it:)

I did end up buying some treats to take that are normally not in the house. I am proud of my two children because they have adjusted to our healthier lifestyle with only a few complaints LOL. I still occasionally buy ice cream or a bag of chips for the kids but these things are no longer staples in our home. They have requested certain favorites and I agreed, within reason. During the week, I will have these "treat" items in my environment and I have given myself permission to indulge in one item each day (like a serving of chips or one smore). I hope I am not setting myself up for failure as I have already caught myself looking forward to eating some of these items. Is that wrong?

Sweetnlow28 there is nothing wrong with indulging those selective items but please be mindful and try not to over due it try eating those items 1 times a day if you like but if you feel as though your contantly craving those items than stop immediately and for breakfast try scramble eggs and yogurt as i heard those burn body fat. Have fun and good luck.

If you are watching it the rest of the time and being active, indulging once a day in something you wouldn't otherwise have IMO is fine. It sounds like a blast, have a great time! :)
