Exciting! Road Trip Blog :)

15 Apr

I have not had any motivation to blog lately… probably because everything has been good, and stressful at the same time! I think when it comes down to it I haven’t had inspiration to write about anything, because I couldn’t think of a good topic that I felt I could write a good post about! 

So today, while driving home I was thinking and planning our upcoming road trip! I’m super excited about this road trip for a few reasons:

1. I’ve never been to California, San Fran, or even the coastal side of Oregon/Washington (all destinations on this trip).

2. I will have been living this “lifestyle” for 6 months when we leave for our trip. I’m excited to trial it outside of my regular comfort zone (we’ve had lots of trial-runs). I’m planning on making, portioning, and bringing special snacks along, as well as making smart decisions on the go.

3. These are the best places I can think of to keep active and maybe even LOSE weight on Vacation! (Could I be the first person to say this?) 

So, I started thinking, to keep myself extra accountable, maybe motivate someone else to turn their road trip into a “road to healthy trip” (haha so cheesy!), and an excuse to share funny moments, trials, successes and some pictures, I’ll do a road trip blog series! 

This is the plan:

The week before the road trip: May 4 -10th I’m going to post 4 or 5 posts, including some yummy recipes for road trip (or living room) friendly snacks, organization planning, etc. 

Then the week of the trip, starting the night before, and ending the day after we return home, I’m going to keep updating this blog… specifically each day I’ll share where we’ve been, what we’ve done, and specifically, the healthy food I found (as well as any indulgences – every vacation has to have SOME indulgences!), and how many miles we’ve travelled, and how many miles we’ve walked. In the spirit of spending over a week in the USA, I’ll be switching to miles! I’m not sure how I feel about having to walk farther to complete “1” but it’s in the spirit :). 

Here’s hoping I get to post another blog before we leave, but if I don’t you can for sure look for this 🙂
