I am on a trip that started yesterday, will be going home on Sunday. Attending a huge sewing expo at a fairground (with the usual fair food available). Going to lots of classes and taking a look at all the cool stuff the vendors brought to tempt us with. I've been looking forward to this trip for months.
I did a lot of planning before I left on how I will STAY on plan while I am here. I got a hotel room with a frig and microwave. I made a menu and brought my IP foods for each day with me. I also brought plates, bowls, silverware, ziplocs, a small leak proof container for salad dressing, and an insulated lunch box. This afternoon, I had a break between classes so I went to the store and bought a case of water, pickles, assorted veggies and a nice olive oil and cider vinegar.
Had my IP cereal for breakfast, then an IP drink and steamed broccoli and cauliflower for lunch back at my hotel room. Having dinner with a large group at Old Country Buffet (I did not pick the location). I looked up their menu so I can be prepared, and I'll pack my Mio and a snack. Most other days I will be at the fairgrounds thru lunch so I will pack a salad and assorted veggies and an IP drink to have with me. Dinners will be out, so I am going to take it as a personal challenge/game to get a decent meal at each place that is 100% OP!
What else have you done to ensure success while traveling? See anything in my plan I could improve?
