Preparing for first business trip in 6 1/2 years...

Thursday, November 08, 2012

While my DW and I have traveled a few times since I had my WLS last year, I will be taking my first solo trip next week, and a business trip on top of it. While I'm not trying to obsess about it, I am doing a fair amount of planning, such as making sure the hotel I am staying in has good workout facilities, moving my workouts on my calendar to early AM (my normal workouts are at lunchtime, but that is not feasible given that I will be in all day meetings), and making sure I have access to quality foods.

I used to travel on business a lot, and in thinking back, did not give much, if any thought, into nutrition and exercise. Giving it LOTS thought this time!

I'll plan to do a post mortem when I get back. I will do some blogging while I'm on the road as well.

I have a high degree of confidence that I will do well....

    You can do it. I don't do that much travel but for my conference last week I was much more conscious about planning than usual and it worked out great. I slipped for one dinner but after it was over I realized it wasn't nearly as bad as I thought. You are definitely much more prepared than I am so I am confident you will do well.

    Patrick, of everyone I've met, face-to-face or virtually on SparkPeople, you're hands-down the most consistently disciplined, dedicated, motivated and motivating person I know. You will stick with your program on this trip, no question. And if you have slippages, they'll only be that--slippages not changes of habit, and you also know enough to be gentle with yourself you do have slippages. You'll be fine : )

    I agree that you'll succeed. Kind of like the holidays. Lots of excuses for getting off your program, but you clearly have the determination not to stray.

Great going.
