I'm just going to throw a summary of pluses and minuses for the last few days, since I was traveling on business.

Minuses: Had to skip workout on Tuesday, and sort of beat myself up for it (which is a separate issue...realistically, it was NOT a good idea to try to get up at 4:30 to exercise after getting to hotel late at 12:30 after a delayed flight, but I felt bad about it anyway, which to me indicates a problem), bags of candy floating around the conference table resulted in exactly 11 pieces of 25 calorie/piece mini 3 Musketeers bars crossing my lips in two days.

Pluses: Bypassed the muffin/coffee cake/brownie/office birthday cake/etc going around, which made the 300 or so calories of candy over two days much more acceptable, got my workouts in on Monday and Wednesday, stuck with protein bar breakfasts/nuts for snack/lunches and dinners as healthy as I could get them with the catered, no choice food options...did a lot of taking off half of the bread, supplementing with fruit and nuts/healthy fats, and generally making myself healthy, veggie-filled plates. Walked a lot in airports, filled plates with salad, and made sure I was staying hydrated by keeping a water bottle on hand at all times.

Plan for today, now that I'm in my home environment:

B - Bagel thin, cream cheese, turkey
S - Banana w/ 1 tsp PB
L - Tuna on english muffin
S - Protein Shake
D - Not sure yet. Need to go to store. Will NOT get takeout, though (had enough of that with the catered meeting food!)
S - NSA Ice Cream

E - 30 min cardio (done), 1 hr strength (about to do), 45 min cardio session 2

Update on Thursday: DS was craving pasta so we had ravioli with green beans. I didn't make any breadsticks and I stuck to a small serving. It's all good.

Friday~
B~two bites of sweet roll, coffee
S~grapefruit
L~hmmm, it's National New England Clam Chowder day...but I've had this for the past two Friday lunches. Do I dare again? We'll see.
D~date night with DH, we're going to go see Black Swan and will have butter-less popcorn and water and that will be dinner as we usually have big lunches on Fridays.

I find that I only come in here during the week, and sometimes don't post even then. I'm not off plan. But my choices are more carefully considered when I post here every day.

Starting today, 7 days of posting here in a row. PM me if I don't!

B - Bagel thin, deli ham, 2% cheddar, plus a kiwi
S - Orange
L - Roast chicken (no skin, about 3 oz breast and 2 oz dark?), 1 cup roasted mixed vegetables (carrots, fennel, sweet potato, red potato)
S - Protein Shake - Protein powder, almond milk, frozen peaches, sugar free chai concentrate.
D - Smoked lean pork chop (4 oz), beet risotto, broccoli
S - NSA Ice Cream

E - 85 min cardio bonanza. May do yoga later, if it fits into schedule, but am pretty happy with the level of sweat so far.
