I am off for a challenging weekend, food and exercise wise. I will be traveling a lot, alone.
I am driving to Providence, RI late this morning to spend the day and night with my sister-in-law at her new house. Then we are all heading to Long Island together (but in separate cars) for her baby shower on Saturday. Then I will drive home to Albany.
That's a lot of sitting. I usually am pretty mobile when I am at home. Always heading up and down the stairs, cleaning, playing with the dog, whatever. I don't sit still for long. I actually REALLY hate sitting for long periods of time. I get really antsy and uncomfortable (another reason I am not excitedly looking for an office job, haha).
But, there is nothing to be done for the inactivity, really. I can get out at rest stops and stretch. And I will definitely make a point of putting aside some time in the busy weekend of travel and socializing to do purposeful yoga.
But food is the biggest concern!! Obviously, part of the weekend is a party and there will be treats and things. And, just simply, I won't have easy access to my kitchen! I cook everything I eat, aside from snacks like bananas or yogurt. But, seriously, I cook three times a day.
So I am packing a little cooler for myself. I have roasted sweet potatoes, a ground turkey/green bean/tomato mix, bananas, and other assorted fresh and healthy food to bring.
I can't let the stress and time commitment of travel derail me!
I am still weighing in at 120.4 and want to keep it that way.
So did I mention my next goal? It's a silly one. I always like to set little goals that aren't too far away to keep me in check. For example, I wanted to stay healthy for my wedding, then for my trip to Japan, then for my tattoo. Little goals set about a month or so apart to just remind me WHY I am putting the work in to stay fit and healthy. Japan would not have been nearly as fun if I was gaining weight and/or sick because I didn't take care of myself!
The next goal is about a week away, a big party on Saturday that we call the Rage Cage (hahaha). It's a costume party where our friends' band plays along with several friends who are DJs. It used to be a Halloween party but changed into it's own thing eventually! There is always a theme for the costumes (one year zombies, one year cross dressing, one year post-apocalypse). This year, the theme is fetishes!!!
So, I have a costume. It doesn't leave a ton to the imagination. So really hoping I keep my indulgences in check this weekend and coming week so I can feel as comfortable as possible :D
Have a stunning weekend, my friends!
