Going to watch my daughter's swim meet was so worth it.
I loved seeing her and her team mates compete and to see the results of their hard work.
Being in the car for 3 1/2 hours two days in a row and sitting a significant part of the rest of the day was hard for me. I'm so used to moving around most of the day and also relying on the exercise I get from this.
Fortunately the motel had a nice fitness room so I got a 30 minute run, a strength training workout and a few sprints on the treadmill in, overall about 70 minutes. I decided not to weigh myself until tomorrow morning when my body is a little bit more in balance as far as exercise, food and fluid levels.
Overall I ate well and stayed relatively close to my eating plan with the following changes:
I ate more fruit at the hotel breakfast bar because there were not as many choices as I have at home. I also snacked more when I sat around with not much to do. My snacks were macadamia nuts that I brought from home but I probably had a few more than I needed. I also had some chocolate-covered almonds and one small bar of chocolate.
Lunch and dinner were burgers with various extras like mushrooms, cheese and bacon and some salad.
Getting to bed very late last night (around 2 am), made it hard to be on a normal schedule today. I only ate two meals, bacon and eggs as a midday meal and fresh berries with yogurt and some cheese and sprouts at night.
Today I had to catch up on a few things and am planning to watch a movie with my daughter, slowly and gradually transitioning us back to a normal bedtime.
Tomorrow I want to go back to a normal routine.
