Tomorrow will be a new adventure for me. I have been working out and eating low carb for 16 weeks now. I have had my days that were tough and tempting. I just recently took pictures at an event that served cake and punch and thankfully bottled waters! I had two small bottles of water and passed on the cake and punch. I think about my treat day coming up the first of November and I let the urge for something sweet pass. This month is a longer stretch for a treat as I reach for higher goals. I’m not saying I don’t have a bite of chocolate here and there or a little nibble of something but I know it’s in my best interest to stray away from a full on piece of cake. Tomorrow I will travel with my boss out of town for the remainder of the week. I’m excited since we have never had the one on one time that a road trip brings. I am mentally preparing myself and planning to spend time in the gym at the hotel while I’m there. I packed my workout clothes and my trainer even offered to send me a work out plan to follow. I also have my Zumba buddies who will be checking in on me to see if I exercised. My biggest challenge will be those stops at the gas station for snacks. I’ve already thought through some of my options so I won’t blindly walk in and grab a candy bar or a soda like I usually do on a road trip. It will be different but I know I can do it!
I will be offline for a bit on my blogging. Just my phone on this trip but hoping to invest in a new laptop soon. I will report back how my week goes! I just know I don’t want to ruin all of the hard work I have been putting in these past few months and that in itself is a good motivation to succeed.
