Although I arm myself with healthy snacks when I travel, this week was more challenging when it came to eating meals. And I find when I eat one bad meal, I seem to crave the next as soon as I finish the first. All while feeling crappy FROM the first. It doesn’t make any sense but I can see why people have a hard time breaking the habit. However, week 2 will be nothing like this week, I promise!

Today was an exciting day though because we had a bit of a family reunion with Shannon’s side of the family. We make the 3 hour drive to Georgia early in the morning and head back in the late afternoon so we can be in our own beds at night. It sure makes for a long day though! 8 adults and 7 kids and a food spread like you wouldn’t believe – chicken wraps, fried chicken wings, broccoli salad, ham delights and more! It’s mostly fun to see the kids all get together and play.

I got to snuggle the littlest baby girl!! At just a year old, she gives the best hugs you could ever imagine! And don’t forget about the slobbery kisses!! I sure do love a loving baby!

Speaking of babies, mine fell asleep mid-donut on the drive home!

How do you make sure you don’t give in to temptations while traveling?
