Obsessed – Day 9

Well friends, today was not my best day.  It started out strong.  Pre-workout then workout and then recover shake.  See the deal is, when I travel with other people and we are all doing things as a group, I’m working on their timeline too.  That’s the struggle on weeks I don’t travel alone.  So, I had a FABULOUS workout.  Then waited way too long to eat post-workout and that meant we all went out to lunch after visiting a museum and I had too many carbs (but nothing terribly bad).  We went to the grocery store after that and I got everything I need for tomorrow but didn’t get anything for dinner thinking we’d all go out to eat.  That didin’t happen and I ended up eating in my room.  But what I ate is what is the “fail” part of my day.  My food is SO off today and I was really hungry and the foods I bought don’t fall into my evening food plan because I assumed I’d be eating out.  I ate two cookies.  It could be WAY worse but its still not something I really wanted to do.  I also drank my superfoods shake so I got a lot of veggie servings out of that but the cookies were not a great choice.

Here are the lessons I’m learning about timed nutrition and travel.  1) I need to plan better for my travel weeks.  Plan for things I can have in my room, just in case I don’t have a car or things around me are closed (both of which are the case tonight). 2) Never travel and depend on other people to drive me. I’ll be renting my own car in the future so I can come and go as I please.  3) Diligence.  While lesson 1 and 2 are legitimate reasons for my veer off course, I MUST find a way and remain diligent.

I’m only 9 days into this program and I’m already seeing changes.  But I’ve had two days that have included foods that are way off my meal plan and that cannot continue if I want to see the drastic changes I’m looking for.

I’m so grateful for my support system and my friends and co-workers.  They would have totally understood if I had stood firm and done what I needed to do.  Tomorrow is another day and the day I choose that path.

-Until tomorrow
