What happens when you go on
vacation while doing Intermittent Fasting?
Well, Emily found out on her big
family vacation! In fact, it’s a whirlwind of a story, which
includes Emily’s actual ideal vacation of driving for hours in
nature, calling on her “boot and rally” days from college to get
her through taking too many vitamins on an empty stomach, and Couch
Jeans from the Universe.
Wow. Are these show notes or the
back of a family comedy from the ‘80s VHS?
Meanwhile, while Emily was away,
John spent time with his girlfriend and then ran amok the rest of
the time. But it wasn’t an all-at-once thing. It happened
gradually. But now, since he’s had to be accountable on the show,
he has decided to create a 5-step plan for himself and can
hopefully find some local groups to help out. (Suggestions

way to rid yourself of Mom Guilt? Being *those* parents on a plane
with a screaming child. Emily and her husband were those parents.
- But Diet Guilt? Apparently, that’s a
thing, as Emily finds out. But because of sickness going through
everyone else, she decided to take Zicam outside of her eating
window. Because being healthy on a family vacation is probably the
best reason to break a fast. SPOILER ALERT: Turns out, it didn’t
deter her weight loss at all! :)
you a Disney food person? Emily loved the food there!
- “You’re a mom! Come on! College has trained us
for this. Boot & Rally!” — When you tell yourself you don’t
have the flu, you just took too many vitamins.

Good hibachi. But not California pizza. Sorry,

they’re Sketchers with Memory Foam.
you wear “Couch Jeans”? Seriously.
the Couch Jeans from the Universe did provide a wonderful belt for
the jeans Emily brought and found out were too big.

dress fit completely differently.
