Vacation Planning!

We're going to be going out of town for Mardi Gras, and that means a plan! On a vacation, we'll have travel days, where we are in the car, and destination days, where we are not at home.

Most of the planning will be on how to deal with these issues. Luckily, we've got supportive family so I don't see us getting sabotaged!

So... what is our plan?

Travel Days:
For these, most of the day is easy. You eat the ready to eat Medifast meals. Crunch Bars, Chewy Bars, BBQ Bites, Parmesan Puffs, Pretzels. We'll be travelling 3 days, two half days and one whole day.

My only real concern with these is the lack of a hearty meal replacement. I'm going to miss that Mac and Cheese when I'm eating an extra bar.

The next day we'll travel in the morning and be at my parents' house in time for dinner, so we'll get by with Medifast Meals.

On the way home on Sunday, though, we'll be in the car all day. We'll have to survive the kids eating fast food while we eat a bar. We'll need to stop somewhere that we can eat reasonably, which will probably be Subway.

Destination Days:
These really won't be any different than being at home. We'll bring Medifast meals, Laughing Cow, PB2, almond milk, and have all our normal meals. L&G will be prepared and we'll just make sure to stay on plan. There will be challenges, because there will likely be other food available (not to mention it's Mardi Gras... so king cakes and moon pies...)

But, I don't think we'll have any real issue staying on plan as long as we prepare for it ahead of time.

It will be a bit of a challenge overall, but I think we'll navigate it just fine!
