Two weeks on the canals

we are going away for two weeks travelling on the canals. I normally put on weight when we do this as we tend to have more treats and alcohol that we do no normally have at home. I also however usually very active as I do all the locks but with my neck injury the physio has told me not to do any of those activities. I'm worried how I am going to keep the weight down. I'm trying to plan ahead so hopefully that will help.

There seems to be some ambivalence; how can it be a treat if it jeopardises your long-term goals/health?

As for the alcohol, I can only give my own bias; I gave up about 6 years ago, decided never to go back, and definitely do not regret that decision.

However, a successful way of life depends more on what you can have than what you don't.


Hey first of all worrying and getting stressed over it will make things harder as stress and worry is notorious for making weight loss harder. But by planning ahead i think you are doing the right thing, you can plan meals and healthy snacks. Maybe Stop each day and go for a walk for 30-60mins to keep get some exercise in, alcohol is a personal choice but if you do i would include it into your calories and when you plan ahead. Stay active and eat healthy and enjoy your holiday, a little blip can be sorted once you are back into a normal routine.

Thank you I have a plan to walk for an hour a day weather dependant. I have signed up for the my walk app so I can log it. I'm going to write a menu plan this week so I can do a shop. Hopefully it all goes to plan.
