We're Going To Disney World


(above pics courtesy of our July '07 visit)

That's right. I'm taking you all with me. If you think the Furious shenanigans are entertaining now... just wait to see what "vacation mode" brings.

*******************************************************
We are going to be gone for 7 days. That is long enough to actually do some damage so here are my vacation weight maintenance strategies:

I have a pedometer (thank you Angie) that I will be wearing to keep track of how many miles I put in everyday.
Today was a reasonable normal low activity day for me and I walked 3.00 miles so far just doing stuff around the house. I usually workout for 3.5 miles 4 times a week or so. So I'm going to track that and make sure I'm putting in as much while I'm there (how could I not?) as I do here.

I will not have any soda (the last soda I had was at Disney in July.. go me!) I will drink water, iced tea, and coffee.

I am going to keep my food diary going.

I've brought my Kashi Go Lean bars with me so I won't be tempted to eat unhealthy snacks. (well.. I'll be tempted)

Disney has really big portions so I am going to split my meals with Kid and/or order kid's meals for myself when possible. Buffets?.. yeah that is going to be a little harder.. I'm just going to try and keep to one plate.

I am also going to try and remember, every morning when I see them waiting for me, that a muffin has 500 calories in even Disney World.

*********************************************************
I should note that in the past if Mr F had even thought of bringing a computer on our vacations I would have divorced him. Lucky for all of you I make the rules.... and they don't apply to me!

Have a great trip! Call me if you have a free moment. May the force be with you in your dr. Pepperless trip. Safe travels!

Angie said...

You will do great! I have a lot of confidence in you. Have fun. And LOL--You would have totally killed Mr. F if he would have blogged on vacation. You are a lucky woman :-)

Julie said...

Have fun! You can do it! I can't wait to hear about the trip. I love the photo of Baby with Eoyre (i have no idea how you spell his name, but you know i mean the depressed donkey from winnie the pooh.)

Wait...I just realized you guys went to Disney just this past July?

eurydice said...

"check out baby's round head" hahaha. have fun!

Angie said...

Have to ask, why no diet soda? Diet Dr. Pepper...mmmmmm.....

Whoooaaaa. Look at the difference a year makes with the tummy. Sweet Jesus.

You'll do great with your plan and a little treat is good for the soul.

Can't wait to hear about the vacation antics.

I think vacationing in Disneyworld shouldn't be too bad even if you indulge because you'll be up and moving ALL day long having so much fun! How great is that --> keeping your body moving while having the time of your life with ur fam! Jealous!

Deb said...

I can't wait to see the organizational tips

Haley said...

Bon voyage!

My, my. How time have changed. NOW, I am sent up to the room by Mrs F to "get the internet set up and my computer connected so I can post and check my comments..."

Mrs. Furious said...

Alexis,
will do.


Angie,
I know... so funny. times have changed!


Julie,
yeah we do Disney a fair amount. With Kid we can't travel to most places (must be near Hospitals and whatnot) for some reason I've decided since Make-a-Wish kids can come here than we can! Also Kid had surgery in June and the July trip was a surprise for her after she recovered. She literally didn't know where we were going until we got here. It was great!

Mrs. Furious said...

eurydice,
thanks! yes Baby and I were both a bit fatter ;)

Angie,
no I don't do diet.. b'feeding & I think it keeps people from losing... plus I just don't like it.

P.O.M.
yes Heather is right.. 4 months.. believe it! :)

Preppy Mama,
Thanks!


LOL I feel like Katieo doing it this way!

Mrs. Furious said...

Heather,
thanks for the props... and you won't have to wait much longer!

Eat Like A Caveman,
I had a little buffet mishap last night but I'm tracking my miles and as long as I bust out about 6-7 miles a day I should be okay!

Deb,
I'm gonna post on that tonight.. hopefully... I have to wait until I have unpacked!

Haley,
LOVE the holiday bazaar. (yes I realize you posted this on the other thread) I was just thinking about it the other day. I got great earrings there one time!

Not a problem there! Have you taken the back way between Epcot and MGM? It's a really nice walk (long, but very nice)

Where did you buy your Disney World Tickets and also how much does it cost for a lunch with the character. My kids would love these meals with the characters.
