OT: Traveling, Eating, oh my!
Today I embark on a 9 day business trip to Washington State. I think I am prepared.
The issue always has been that business travel corralates to increase in weight gain for me, not much tracking of food, and not much working out. These gains can be crazy.... 2 to 10 pound increases. Yikes.
So, my flight is in the evening, my dinner is made and I will bring on the plane. I also packed a lot of snacks like hummus, carrots, airpopped popcorn and Laura Bars. I also have apples and oranges too.
I have pretracked all my food today as well.
I decided to get a different hotel that has kitchens in each room. Bringing a scale as well to measure food. I plan to cook my dinners on the last half of the trip. I know this might be overboard but traveling is a pinch point for me in my journey so far.
I know where all the gyms are and plan to go. I also have planned to go to a WW meeting or two as well.
I am well prepared I believe.
I will be seeing a lot of friends too on the off time which means going out to dinner and lunches all over the place. This will happen at the front end of the trip so I will tackle this too. Restaurant eating, when on business trips, have been tough. A friend mentioned salad with lean protein. I may go that route bc I love salads. We will see how that plans out.
No lie, I am nervous but I hope all will be well.
