Survived my trip to LA LA land

Friday, February 07, 2014

My challenge this week was a business trip to LA and I was in control for the most part. Not perfect, but in control. I consider that to be a success. I left for the trip in less than optimal conditions (east coast ice storm) - previously the perfect excuse for 'this is too much to deal with'. but I packed food for the trip that lasted me two days. I did go out to dinner, and although I did not deprive myself, I controlled what I ate, how I ordered, and even had a cocktail and glass of wine with dinner. I went to the hotel fitness center for 40 minutes this morning which really helped my mental fitness. Most important for me was that I did not binge after not one, but 2 big restaurant dinners. I tried to track my meals-- everything I ate and drank (not just what I wanted to record that would make my numbers look good).
So one more thing that I can do!

    You are staying in control and are being successful. Great job of working out in the fitness center and in staying in control despite the business meals.

    Sounds like you have a really good handle on keeping your routine away from the safety of home! Way to go!
