[QUOTE=Erin;922778]I think the best part of eating on vacation to places like WDW or DL is that you are counteracting it with so much activity. It’s hard to feel bad about all that good food when you’re walking around so much.
Log all that walking into sparkpeople and see how many calories you’re burning!
I’m betting you’ll come back even and not gain an ounce, Wishy.
Don’t let a new goal ruin a perfectly good time. This diet and plan will be here waiting for you.
Now, with that being said, I personally would plan out as much as possible (which it sounds like you’re doing) - snacks are easy, breakfast is easy and lunch is probably even going to be ok. Dinner could be tricky but I bet you could indulge a little at dinner and be ok with a lot of good activity every single day.
I think I would personally stick to only indulging ONCE a day - so if I had a Mickey bar I would not have dessert or if I had a dole whip I would not eat a sticky bun for breakfast. KnowwhatImean?[/QUOTE]
Thanks Erin, I Knowwhat’chamean. Breakfast is NEVER a problem for me. I am going to go down to our hotel’s little market on our first day & get some low fat yogurt & a couple bananas to put in the room’s fridge. I’ve done this every Disneyland trip so I am familiar with what products they carry.
If i feel like a snack during the day in the parks I NEVER have a problem getting one of those huge pineapple spears or big pickles from the fruit cart. My Dad loves that stuff too so that’s not a problem.
My plan for counter service lunch is going to be the following. I’ve looked at all the menus on Allears & tried to choose the healthiest options. I’ve given myself two choices just in case:
Day 1 (DCA):
California Wrap - Marinated Grilled Chicken, Mandarin oranges, apricots, sliced red flame grapes, cilantro, baby spinach, lightly tossed in a dressing of non-fat yogurt laced with amber honey, wrapped in a spinach tortilla. Served with choice of apple slices or fries. $7.99
Pacific Wharf Cafe:
Sonoma Chicken & Apple Salad - Tender pieces of chicken breast with tart, crisp apples, celery, and walnuts in a creamy honey dressing with a dash of lemon, served atop a bed of garden fresh lettuce. $8.99
Day 2, Disneyland:
River Belle Terrace:
Turkey Breast sandwich served with Baked Beans and a choice of one cold side dish
Rancho Del Zocalo:
Chicken or Vegetable soft tacos topped with Cheese and served in Flour Tortillas. $9.99. Includes Mexican Rice and Refried Beans. Sauteed Vegetables may be substituted for Rice and Beans.
White Water Snacks (at our hotel):
Veggie Burger - served with seasonal fruit or French fries. $7.59 (I will not eat the bun & get the fresh fruit option)
OR maybe something in DtD
Then as far as dinners go I will stick to the lower fat meats, lots of salad, & low on starchy sides.
NO SODA AT ALL! All water!
