My Vacation Strategy

So it's no secret that Mike and I love food and love to eat. I mean, seriously, what's better than a really good meal? Well, some things are I guess, but you know what I mean...

Anyway, in anticipation of our big upcoming trip to Switzerland and Paris, I am trying to be as healthy as possible in order to slim down so I can "bulk up" while I'm there. Do you see where I'm going with this? I'm trying to lose weight now so I can gain it all back by eating my way through every fromagerie and patisserie in existance!

Is this crazy of me? I know someone out there must have done this before. I think it makes perfect sense. Food is really important to me and I want to be able try EVERYTHING I see that looks appealing without feeling guilty about it.

I know they say that calories don't count when you're on vacation, but I am **living proof that they do indeed count and can make you FAT if you're not careful! So I'm sticking to my plan. Drop a few pounds before we leave and then if I gain them back, so be it!

Cheese, foie gras, eclairs, macarons, bread, wine....bon appetit to me!

**I learned this while vacationing in Germany where I incorporated a cheese course into every meal. Needless to say I could not button my pants toward the end of that trip.


  1. macaroons are lustworthy xxx


    sounds like you guys had a BLAST!

  2. I don't think you're crazy. Enjoy yourself! The food in Paris is fabulous! When we lived there (for a very short time), we walked so much that it balanced out eating all their wonderful food. Perhaps it'll be the same for you?
