Tomorrow, Jon and I will be boarding a flight bound for Portland, Oregon! It has been two years since the last time I have been home to see my family.
The main reason for our trip, is that my sister Vivian is getting married on Sunday, May 22nd!! As an added bonus we get to visit with family and meet our nephews Kenneth and Lucas!!
We have been very busy I have been doing my best to get us all packed. We are traveling to Portland and it is much colder there than it is here is Texas, so I have to pack in a way that prepares me for the weather. I am packing long-sleeved shirts, jackets, dresses, leggings, shirts, and the list just seems to go on and on...
However, the weather is not the only thing I am preparing for, because I also have to be very careful to remember to pack things that will help me stay on plan while I am gone!
I am packing our lunches, so that we do not have to buy food at the airport. I am packing snacks for the plane like grapes, Veggies Straws, Nutri-Grain bars, baby carrots, and Fiber One bars. I am also bringing my PointsPlus calculator, which just so happens to be on my phone with my Weight Watchers eTools tracker. I am bringing my walking shoes, so that I can try to earn extra activity PointsPlus.
I am excited to travel and see my family, but I do not want this trip to derail me from my ultimate goal of continuing to maintain my goal weight.
I know that many of you will be traveling this summer too! I want you to have a great time, but do not forget to bring your plan with you where ever you go!
There is an old meeting summary blog post that I wrote last June. It is so helpful to explain how to "Pack Your Plan for Vacation". To check it out, click here.
I will be gone from May 19th - 24th, so now you know why I will be M.I.A. this week and next.
