flying - not so bad
Saturday, May 01, 2010
I fly a lot. Typically airplanes and travel days are food free-for-alls for me between the time zones, the dehydration, and the boredom. This might be okay if I did it a few times a year, but I fear that one of my downfalls the past few months has been my constant air travel and the eating that goes with it.
Well, yesterday/today I went flying. I planned ahead with healthy snacks packaged in 100-ish calorie units. Nuts, granola, jicama, kiwi fruit, hummus, and a sandwich. I ate little bits at a time, tracked it all, chose the healthy, salad dinner when I was upgraded to first class. And in spite of the time changes and the long day today, I did extremely well.
I'm really proud! It was a lot of work though. I hope that I can replicate it in the future.
