Blah Blah Blah

My mom is in town visiting and interestingly enough it's cause me to fall off the good eats wagon a bit...okay a lot. I know ultimately it's my choice of what goes into my mouth, but it is a little hard with visitors in town.

I'm nervous about the month ahead. June is going to be a huge challenge for me. I leave for six days on the east coast where there's bound to be lots of drinking and opportunities for unhealthy food decisions. Then I'm back home for a couple of weeks and then I'm on the road for a work trip to Indiana for four days at the end of the month. I've heard from other people who have attended this leadership workshop before that not much of your time is your own. But I'll need to get some good runs in while I'm gone and try and take care of myself.

It's stressing me out. But I guess it's also a good opportunity for me to really focus on taking care of me the best way that I know how.

I didn't go to Double W this Monday because it was a holiday. And then I ended up going up to Ojai with my mom and Katie Tuesday and Wednesday. Since I have to weigh in on Monday, I figured I'd just skip this week. But it's causing me to skip out on the program entirely this week. Which isn't really what I want to be doing. I'm not tracking or thinking. Not a good combo.

What can I do? Do better tomorrow.

PS- If you're the type of person who prays, please pray for a very safe and speedy return of Johnny.

Thanks for the PS about Johnny! I really appreciate it.

Also, we'll need to push each other to get up early and walk/run while in Long Beach. I need to do 4and 5 mile walks that week.

I can totally relate to the challenges of healhy eating when on the road. It's such a challenge! I pack some healthy snacks to get me through the flight- nuts, carrots, dried fruit. I also try to squeeze a quick run to the grocery store to stock up on fresh fruit. That gets through me the snacks, dinner and drinks are a different story

Yes, DO pack snacks on the plane! I always have a couple baggies of carrots or nuts or even Wheat Thins and cheese to snack on.

Here's a great *cheat* - instead of sodas, flavored coffees, etc. (did you know most Americans drink over 20% of their daily calories?!) - get some of those Crystal Light flavor packets (totally low cal/sugar) you can dump 'em right into your bottle to spice up your water. It's even better if you get sparkling water!

It IS very hard to eat well with guests in town! Might I suggest a healthy 'appetizer' or two at home before heading out to dinner? You won't be as hungry at the restaurant and save some $$ too.
