Am I overreacting about deviating from my daily routine on holiday with friends? Watch

    • Thread Starter

    I have a set daily routine that I find hard to deviate from. This consists of some exercise because I have a binge-eating issue.

    Basically, I am currently on holiday with some friends and the plan was initially to stay at this cottage for seven days. During this holiday, there will be lots of walking and exploring, cycling, swimming, plus going for jogs in the morning. One of my friends also brought his push-up station and yesterday we even went paintballing, which was fun. However, I am insisting that I buy myself a rather expensive train ticket home on the fifth day because I am self-conscious of deviating from my daily routine at home.

    Usually at home I am engaging in this routine from the moment I get out of bed, but in this cottage I feel like there are a few hard-to-explain restrictions because my routine at home is so familiar to me.

    My friends say I am overreacting, and that actually I won't gain as much weight from not carrying out my daily routine as I think I will. I feel like the exercise here I am getting is maybe not as much as the exercise I get from my routine at home, but my friends insist that it is plenty. We go on walks around the Yorkshire Moors every day, for example. We also plan to go cycling, and obviously there is nothing to stop me from jogging in the morning, etc.

    Basically, I want some advice on how to deal with this issue. Should I go home on the fifth day (and abandon my friends)? This is just such a drastic from my routine that I do every day at home. Am I overreacting?

    p.s. it is way cheaper if I stay for seven days because my friend will give me a lift home.

    TL;DR: I am self-conscious about my overeating compared to the lack of exercise that I think I will get on this cottage holiday in the Yorkshire Moors. Should I stay the full length of the holiday or go home early to avoid potential weight gain?/Will going home two days early prevent any weight gain?

    Why can't you just do the exercise you'd normally do at home, at the cottage instead? Same exercises, different location? Or does it require special equipment?
