Fit at Fifty Week Seven

Fit at Fifty Week Seven

Sharing is caring!

Subconsciously, I feel I have been putting this week’s Fit at Fifty Week Seven off.  Maybe hoping it would go away as it was a disaster in my opinion.  I did not do anything I have been so diligently keeping up on, like working out and eating right or at least better.  We were home for two of the days which was good as I started the week off well, then we traveled to a client event, and life fell apart.

This event consists of staying at a hotel with not a lot of eating options – was excited that they opened a cafe this year.  YAY for breakfast sandwiches!  Otherwise, not many great options for eating.  As well, the days are long, and I did not get any gym time in, even though, sneakers did travel with me.  I did manage to do some evening yoga.  I didn’t lose anything, instead stayed the same weight, which I was surprised as I ate like crap….

One of my readers wrote to me about how I should be sharing my steps or miles as part of my moving.  Thank You for keeping me honest and reminding me that this is part of moving!  Moving forward I will do that!  As well, I promise to write out my meal planning as my friend Amy suggested.  I stocked up at the store today!  Some of you also asked the spin classes I like to use at home?  I am putting together a list on my YouTube channel and will share next week!

Now to the fun part ….

Travel and dieting are tough to deal with. Not sure if this tip helps but when I travel, I don't eat out. I pack homemade granola for daily breakfast and as soon as I arrive I find the nearest grocery store... fruit, yogurt, salad bar, etc. then go back to the hotel and cram everything into the mini fridge. Call room service for juice, milk utensils and tip them. Travel food is the worst!!!

Doesn't it? I wish we were at the liberty of staying somewhere which made it easier for having at least breakfast in our room but unfortunately it doesn't. We are at the mercy of staying in the hotel our client's events are at. I do like that room service tip - great one!

Disaster? Failure? Be nicer to yourself. Be kind to yourself. That's part of taking care of yourself. Yes, you are being accountable and transparent but give yourself a nice break!
