Dieting while on a business trip...

Friday, May 17, 2013

I'm headed to Pittsburgh next week for work, and although I'm super excited, I'm also a little nervous. I've never met most of the people that work for my company, and they're planning all kinds of fun things for me to do. It seems this is going to also entail checking out some of Pittsburgh's most loved restaurants. I'm trying (pretty) hard to stay on track with my diet, especially since I have my first official 10k just two days after I return home. I hope everyone understands I don't mean to be rude, but I don't want food to be the focus of all our out-and-about ventures. Tips on being polite about it?

    I know I'm a little late on commenting on this ;-) but I think how you said it in your blog is perfect! Flat out tell them that you want to see more of Pittsburg than just restaurants. Also, you can curb some of the cravings by getting a list of the couple of restaurants you are being taken to and seeing if you can view the menu online. Then pick something that won't completely kill your diet while still enjoying the local fare!
