Default Beating the work travel gremlins......

Hey guys

I'm taking a small moment of self-congratulation here......I'm away on a work trip (just one night, sunny Birmingham, middle of England), and I am beating those work-trip gremlins to a pulp!

Last night I went shopping at the supermarket.....and ended up with a very enjoyable very healthy picnic in my room, which I consumed while watching Sleepless in Seattle.....I like that movie! And this morning, I had fruit salad, poached eggs, tomatoes and mushrooms.....and turned down the rest of the traditional English breakfast!

This is a big deal for me - in my former life I travelled all the time for work, and it was not a healthy lifestyle I was leading, believe me...

Now if I can just persuade myself back to that resistance work....I will be rocking!

Great great job.. You are an inspiration and a proven example that it can be done!

Good for you. It is so hard to be good when you are out of your regular habits. Good job.

Excellent! I bet it feels good to be making those great choices.

Hey, about Sleepless in Seattle, I went on a boat tour in Seattle this summer (I live there) and we saw the houseboat where they filmed that movie. I guess they filmed in summer and it happened to be a nice summer so they had to throw a lot of water on the houseboat and film at night to make it dark. I was pretty amused to hear that.
