I'm going on holiday 4th June. Self-catering, caravan holiday in Dorset. I was planning to ditch the diet for the whole 10 days. One reason is because I want to have a break and dieting will ruin my holiday, I like to have cream tea (once or twice) and treats. Also if I'm still counting calories it will be awkward as I'll eat out more often then and going to the chippy once or twice makes meal time easier.
I won't be able to use the calorie counting app on my holiday either as I doubt I'll get signal.
But I don't want to put the weight back on. I do a lot of walking on my holiday, from the caravan to the town (it's 15 mintues according to goggle) and around places we visit. I've been there before and one of the reasons I wanted to improve my fitness lately, besides calorie counting and losing weight, is because I wanted to be able to do all the walking on holiday without getting too tired. I think I'll still get tired as I do HIT workouts so it's not the same. And I was tired after wandering around a local beach over a week ago.
I'm wondering if all the walking will help to burn the extra calories. It's a bit of a dilemna, basically a diet will ruin my holiday. I go once a year and only for those days will I be eating unhealthy. I don't really go mad, just one or two takeways, chippy and pasties (which I haven't had in ages).
I'm just wondering if anybody has any experience. Maybe if I try and eat healthy and be strict for one or two of the days, or just not buy too many sweets and chocolate? Any advice for me? I know I'm a bit indecisive, I don't want to put the weight back on and I also don't want to ruin my holiday by resticting what I eat too much.
