Just have to vent...

I'm heading out next week for 2 days of meeting with a big client, so not only will my diet be challenging for 3 days with travel time but I had to buy $175 worth of clothes that I'll likely only wear once.

UGH! LAME! That sucks and I'm sorry you have to do that. It's even worse that it's for work, eh?

Do you have any strategies for eating that will help you? You could always treat it as a challenge. Make a chart, get some stickers, ka-pow! MOTIVATION! ;)

Try not to get too down on the clothing purchases. In my experience, even though you don't like them right now, you never know when they might come in handy! I have a few pieces myself that I "had to buy" for teaching practicum that after a few years, cycled into my regular clothing rotation.

Just donate the clothes when you're done and write it off on your taxes as a charity deduction. :)

Three words.

Travel scale Amazon

I'm off to Turkey next month for work for two weeks. The travel scale is the only sucker gonna keep me in check.
