Last week I was away from home for a work conference for a week. I have been doing so well I was really concerned and to be honest a little freaked out about being away.
I have made such an investment in myself that I didnt want this to mess me up. I made the commitment to myself to take every opprutunity to be active as I was sitting most of the day. I woke up early every morning and worked out before my day started. Every time that they gave us a break I got up and moved . I wore my fitbit so I knew what my steps were. I had no control over my food while I was away so I just loaded up on the salads and tried the best that I could. I did indulge in some of the desserts but I didnt go overboard. I hit above my step count everyday. I was successful and you know what I lost a pound while being out of town.
What I learned from this is we can do this even away from home. Just because I was away I didnt give myself the licence to not keep my goals in mind. I have worked so hard that I truly kept that investment going. I felt good I was not sleepy or tired even though we worked every evening till about 10pm. Yes I indulged in a glass of wine with my friends in the evenings but I still got up early and worked out. It gave me a true since of success and I know that I can do this !!!!
