Next week I'll have a career first -- attending a conference.
I have to say I'm more than a little nervous about being out of my element for 5 days. I'm also nervous about rubbing elbows with the execs, travelling with Coworker who annoys me (yes, the same one who called me anorexic), and giving a presentation in front of my peers.
The hotel they've booked us in has a small fitness center and a pool that's open for odd spurts of time throughout the day. There's also a Whole Foods 1 mile from the hotel.
The preliminary plan is to:
-Alternate treadmill & elliptical workouts daily
-Continue my 4-day ST split with barbell and bodyweight exercises
**if it's uncomfortable to complete ST in fitness center, do exercises in room
-Try a swimming workout (only if I can put on my bathingsuit without it being weird)
-Limit eating out as much as possible
-At restaurants, order something healthy but satisfying.. try to order fish whenever possible (because it's healthy but pricey--and I'm not paying!! lol)
-If breakfast provided at hotel is not up to snuff, stock up on items at Whole Foods (yogurt, kefir, fruits, oatmeal, frozen meals)
-For lunches in cafeteria, choose fresh fruits and veggies whenever possible
-Only 1 night of drinking, and limit to 3 drinks
-Enjoy the walking tour, and try to recruit others to walk around city as much as possible.
This week I've been allowing more comfort foods than I should. I've had drive-thru breakfast twice (womp) and have partaken in late-night cereal munching (womp womp). Maybe I'll be so motivated to get away from Coworker that I'll spend all my time in the fitness center!! Even better, maybe one of the other attendees will want to join me for a workout.
If you have any healthy traveling tips, I'd love to hear them!!
