5% Challenge Blog/(Tuesday)Wednes

Thursday, March 07, 2013

I didn't blog yesterday. I was just too tired after everything. I had a wonderful time, really, but with the two hour time difference, when I got home, it felt soooo late, so I didn't want to schlep to the business center.

So I'm going to answer two questions, leave feedback on the first 5 blogs in my friend feed, and call it a night, because we went out again today, and I'm tired now, too. =)

The questions are:

4) How are you doing day by day?
5) What can you improve upon?

4. I'm not, because I have very little control of my food, so I'm not tracking, so I'm unable to tell if I'm staying in-range. BUT. I am making good choices. I'm skipping the cookies. I'm choosing the fruit. I'm ordering the appetizer as an entree. So I mean, I THINK I'm going okay, but I don't know. It's also hard, because when you're away from home, you don't want to go to some chain you could go to at home. You want to go to the restaurant with good reviews that you won't be able to visit again for a long time, and while that's good, and really COOL, it means there's no website with information to check out beforehand.

5. I do need to track, and I do need to do it even when traveling for work, since this seems to be a monthly thing. I also do need to work on SLOWING DOWN and also STOPPING WHEN I'M SATED.

Off to comment...then post my minutes...then bed. Going home tomorrow.

    Yay for making good food choices! And I totally agree about avoiding the same old chains & instead choosing the one-of-a-kind local places. I'm sure you're accumulating a list of strategies that will help you stay in range even if you can't track the specific numbers while you're on the road.

    I'm sending you good vibes to help you be kind to yourself while doing the challenge.

None of this is "easy" and being on the road adds extra stressors into the equation. Just being in the right place at the right time is too challenging for many people so there will be a reward for you somewhere.

This challenge is almost through, next weeks might be more travel friendly!

    I have all these questions I keep meaning to ask you, like:
Did your hubby make the move and with you now?
Do you like your new job?
Like your new city?
Have any regrets regarding the move?
You, and these questions, pop into my head randomly, and I say a little prayer for you that you are happy. ~hugs~
