Fit at Fifty Week Eleven

Fit at Fifty Week Eleven

Sharing is caring!

Disclaimer, I did not eat these doughnuts, though I wanted too!  I often say, if I lived in Europe, I would be a twig.  Every time we go overseas for holiday I am good for 5 – 10 pounds coming off;  even though I am enjoying a pastry or two a day, and eating full-fat filled meals with great wine.  I blame it on all the walking I do when I am there.  Everything is so damn beautiful that I find myself walking everywhere or taking the train.  Even though I was working this trip, I managed to walk a lot and despite eating a lot of great food, I lost a pound!  I wish our home was as walkable –  Okay, let’s see how I did with this Fit at Fifty Week Eleven!

Fit at Fifty Week Eleven

I behaved on the flights by walking as much as I could, and passing on the undesirable meals that was passed out.  Don’t need to eat it just because it is there.  As well, I drank a lot of water on the plane – fully hydrated!

Overall, I felt really good with how I managed everything during a trip overseas for work.
