emoticon HJKLKJH and emoticon to SparkPeople and the team...Nice to have you with us on the journey to a healthier lifestyle. However you manage the food work-around, enjoy the trip!

You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face.

Mistakes are the portals of discovery.

Don't be afraid to give your best at what seemingly are small jobs. Every time you conquer one it makes you that much stronger. If you do the little jobs well, the big ones will tend to take care of themselves.

It is never too late to be what you might have been.

Hi, Betty!


How you can manage the 3months on a road trip depends on whether you're driving from hotel to hotel or have an RV. If you have an RV, do as you do at home.

Otherwise, you can put a small cooler in your vehicle with some basics that you restock every other day. My parents used to take long road trips doing this, and they also had a stock of some basics. They ate dinners out usually, but found breakfast and lunch 'easy' to do on the road, only having breakfast out about once a week.

If you plan to eat ALL meals 'out', order and eat what you know is right for you. I've found that if only 'fried' something is listed, I can ask for and receive 'broiled', so don't be afraid to try this tactic. Become familiar with menuoptions online before leaving if you plan to eat at chain restaurants. Then you will know in advance what sorts of foods you like and you can 'safely' eat.

A three-month road trip involves a lot of sitting, so keep that pedometer on you as a reminder to get out and walk around to take in the scenery from time to time!

Not sure whether any of the above are useful, but maybe these thoughts will generate some solutions for you. You're wise to plan ahead this way!

For some solid ideas, go to the search, click to do a Spark site search, and type in the words: nutrition eat road trip
Several really good articles will be listed. Check them out! :)

I often say "ENJOY the journey" and this time I mean it in two ways!

Hi, I would like to lose 20-30 lbs. I do work out with a trainer 3x a week. I wear a pedometer, but rarely get to 10,000 steps. my average is about 5,000. my additional problem is I will be leaving on a 3 month road trip so meals will be a problem. I am hoping to get a min. of 5,000 steps in a day, even on the days I will be driving all day. however I still need help trying to manage the 3 meals of eating out and some healthy snacks in between. can anyone help me with this????
