Work is insane and only going to get worse - crazy! Traveling down to the office this week, which'll complicate things, but my hotel has a gym, the breakfast includes fruit and yogurt, and there's a salad bar at the office, so there's no excuses.

Today:
B - Protein shake
S - Kashi bar
L - Tuna melt on sourdough w/ light cheese
S - Popcorn
D - Stirfry w/ broccoli, brown rice
S - NSA Ice cream

E - 90 min cardio - complete

Oh my goodness. Worst flight story ever. And even with that, I was POP yesterday and today (OK, I cut my workouts to 45 min instead of an hour, and I replaced dessert with a glass of wine. Still! Thank goodness for the office salad bar, zone and pria bars, and oranges...hate for everything to be so processed, but you know, when the options are this or a breakfast buffet with nothing but junk, I'll take this)

Yesterday:
B - Zone bar
S - Pria 100 cal bar
L - Sandwich - Turkey, mustard, 1 slice cheese, wheat roll, side of 1/2 cup grilled veggies
S - Orange
D - Glass of wine, salad bar salad w/ chicken

E - After my crazy day, and that awful flight, exhausted, I still headed back into the hotel, went to the gym, and worked out for 45 min before dinner.

Today:
B - Zone bar
S - Orange
L - Big salad w/ grilled chicken
S - Pria Bar
D - Baked salmon, double veggies (skipped all forms of starch), glass of wine

E - 45 min in the hotel gym this morning.

Plan for tomorrow:
B - Zone Bar (LOL, I came stocked!)
S - Orange
L - Giant salad w/ chicken
S - Pria Bar to avoid the inevitable brownie tray at the office company meeting
D - Perhaps the halibut, since I had the salmon tonight...ah, hotel food. Double veggies, glass of wine

E - will do another 45 min in the gym tomorrow. That and walking around in heels all day, I think I am good. Hopefully Saturday I'll get to lift some weights, then we have a teambuilding bowling event so that'll be some movement...then the company party and we'll dance.

HUGE VICTORY ALERT....6 days away from home, with meetings and being off of my schedule and limited access to the typical foods I eat and lots of need for networking/glasses of wine with coworkers...and I did not gain an ounce! AND I did not miss a single workout (including doing cardio after the day from heck AND lifting weights on Friday after dinner with coworkers, just to get it all in).

Glad to be home, though!

Plan for today:
B - French toast w/ egg beaters on sourdough bread
S - Protein shake
L - Tuna melt on sourdough w/ light cheddar
S - Popcorn
D - Chicken and rice soup w/ veggies
S - NSA Ice Cream

E - 75 min cardio

Argh, the internet at home is out. This means that when I tallied up what I ate this morning, I came in over my calorie limit by 25 cals. How can I survive without my food log website at home??? Plus even though I wasn't too hungry when I got home from swim class, I stayed up late enough on the phone with tech support that I got hungry again. Blah.

Tuesday:
B - oatmeal, raisins, apple butter, skim milk
L - lean cuisine lemongrass chicken
S - two clementines
D - beef stew
E - NRLW S7W3

I think the 25 calories will be OK. I was over by 200 yesterday, but was actually hungry, so I'm OK with it...it was healthy snacks added after I was still hungry.

Plan for today:

B - Egg beater french toast made w/ light sourdough
S - Yogurt
L - Leftover Chicken, rice, and mushroom soup, slice of sourdough
S - Popcorn
S - Protein shake w/ berries
D - Chicken and broccoli stir fry, brown rice
S - NSA Ice Cream

60 min cardio, 60 min strength
