I would say I jumped off the wagon this Christmas too. I am trying to be more diligent again and keep track of things!

I fell off the wagon this weekend. emoticon Now I have 10 pounds to lose instead of 8. It is so hard to be good when there's all these holiday dinners and gatherings.

Thank you all very much. I'm back from my trip to Austin and thinks went much better last week. I packed a bunch of protein bars, nuts, and I bought fruit when I got there. My coach allowed me to break up my long runs last week so I could run 3.5 miles during lunch and another 3.5 miles before or after my meetings (whichever I decided). I ran 11 miles on Saturday and felt great. I've already lost the 3 pounds I gained and I'm excited about moving forward. I'll keep you all posted on my progress.

Thank you again for the advice! ~D emoticon

I couldn't say it any better than ANGELFACES_102! That was great advice. I know how hard it is traveling and going-going-going all the time. It makes it tougher to stay on task. Good luck to you and I hope that the advice works for you!!

A traveling schedule makes staying on track challenging. Those protein snack will make a huge difference -- best of luck!

I fell off the wagon too but that's why they call it "starting over" but it's time to get serious for my health.

Thank you so much for the advice. I went to the grocery store today and loaded up on nuts, granola bars, protein bars, and shredded mini wheat cereal. I can pack all of that in my bag and take it with. I can't take any fruit or water through security but this week I should have enough time to get to a grocery store prior to my arrival time. I don't know if they will have a mini refrigerator in the room or not but I drink my water room temperature so I will load up on water and buy energy drinks as I go along. I usually only drink those before and after my runs.
I'll definitely keep you posted on my progress. I appreciate you taking the time out to respond. Take care and thanks for the encouragement! emoticon

My personal opinion is to pack some fruit with you. If there's anything that can get me going, is an apple, a banana, a Nutri-Grain bar, or protein bar...do you have a refrigerator wherever you sleep? Load it up with stuff that is easy to maneuver aroubd with you. Things you can snack on throughout the day...nuts, yogurt, bagels. Can you travel to your destination early enough for you to hit the grocery store before your busy schedule? When you have that one good meal, make it count...maybe Subway, or something like that. If you're in one place for a few days, buy enough water bottles to last you those few days. Are you taking any supplements?

I wish you much luck on your travels. It's hard, but I know you can do it! I believe in you!! Let us know how you're doing!

I've not logged into SP for over a month now - traveling on business. During that time, I've found myself eating only 1x/day. Eating less frequently and not eating healthy when I do eat coupled w/training for a 1/2 marathon in about 4 weeks has me stressed out. I've gained 3 pounds since I last weighed in. I need to get back on track but I'm home just long enough to get laundry done, pack, and fly out again.

Can anyone give me any advice on how I can make sure I eat healthy and frequently during these long 12-15 hour days and make sure I get my long runs in as well? I'm averaging 32 miles/wk - which is also getting harder because I'm not fueling my body properly. I'm desperate for an answer. Thanks!
