So I don’t live with my parents anymore (well that sounds weird. of course I don’t. I am 28 and a lawyer), but I find whenever I go home, my healthy habits go out the window. My mom and I went out to lunch (actually kind of a no no in and of itself in my current diet/fitness book), and I ate more than I would have. Plus, I drank in total about a bottle of wine. Oh where is my restraint when I leave my own apartment. Is it that I am remembering the days of childhood indulgence?
Add that to the fact that I didn’t go to the gym at all during the 2.5 days I was visiting them. WOMP!
What about you? Are you healthier at home?

i’m never healthier at home. it’s usually always about big meals since we’re not together that often. also, i have to eat all of my favorite hometown foods, none of which are healthy.

My parents take us out to eat a lot and we drink more wine with them. Otherwise I could not survive =]. I just enjoy my little break. You can’t do a TON of damage in 2.5 days =P

@ejs4y8: I just had a vision of myself on a two day eating binge with a net gain of like 400lbs smiling with good coming out of my mouth saying “I didn’t do THAT much damage.”

Oh, I am definitely not healthier at home. My family goes out to eat almost daily for dinner, and it is pretty much junk other than that. The only reason I managed to stay healthy was sports and not having time to eat, LOL.

On the road or on vacation I take my laptop, a couple of fitness DVDs and my resistance bands.

I can count on gaining a few pounds when I go and visit my mom. She cooks much heavier food than I cook on a daily basis. But oh wow, it’s so good for those few days. Pork chops and gravy, steaks, big fat bacon…mmm. I could never cook like that at home. It makes me feel super tired. (Not to mention the altitude sickness, she lives in Colorado and I live in Minnesota.)

I eat more healthy when I am at “home” with my grandparents than I am when I am at my second home with J and his parents. It’s the way they cook, I believe. So, I’m trying to cook more meals when I’m around.

It’s a mix – some things are healthier and some things are less healthy. My Dad and brother are also runners so we go running together and I think that it really pushes me to go a little faster than I do at home. We were home over the holidays and I felt so tough and hardcore running in the CT winter with him. Though we definitely indulge in big meals and LOTS of wine when we visit family. I’ve found that my body gives out on me after more than a couple days of rich foods, though, and I start craving apples and lettuce.
