After driving almost 400 miles in a day it can be a daunting task to remember to log food and I carry a notepad and a pen to get that job done. Computer time and internet access are catch as catch can, dependent entirely on circumstance. Good luck smiles on me today as I have managed to light in a wifi hotspot. I could not take my bathroom scale with me as I would have liked but I will simply have to do without for the time being. I did take the food scale though and I will have occasion to use it I am sure.
I try not to become too distracted and get caught up in old bad habits when I travel. When I stop for gas, I get gas. When I need food, I stop at a grocery store, that simple. Fresh fruit is going to be my friend this trip, more opportunities to peel and chop than to get down with pots and pans. I don’t eat at restaurants or fast food places when I am out of town because I have no clue how many calories I am eating and how the macros break down. This may seem extreme to some, my weight is extreme to me. I am ultimately responsible for my food intake, I do not choose to give up control just because I happen to be out of town.
Working out is a different thing all together. Obligations put me in places and circumstances that make a date with VO2max unlikely but the day is still young! Something may come up, as they say, fortune favors the prepared mind.
