I’m out of state for some training during the week and finding it more than difficult to get back on track with my eating. I haven’t been doing as well as I should be with all of training and programs I’ve been working on.
Yes, I know, that’s just an excuse. Believe me, I know, and I’m working to knock the dust off, which seems to be getting harder and harder depending on where I am.
This week, I am in New Mexico, in the middle of nowhere, and I figured that being in a small town would help me eat good and workout while I was here.
This town is tiny, hot and full of fast food restaurants. For as small as it is, it has a Walmart, 3 Dollar stores and every fast food, and pizza chain you can think of. I had to go to the store yesterday to get bowls and salad stuff to make my own salads in my room, along with a smoked turkey leg to pull apart for protein.
Wish me luck. Everything around me is setting me up for failure. I need to get nack in track before I head out to New Orleans in October, because you know its going to be hard there.
I actually went for a short run, when it cooled down, and hit their tiny gym. I planned on swimming but the pool in their photos is much bigger than their actual pool.
For all of you who think I don’t know the struggles of life’s normal stress and it impacts our attempt at good nutrition, I live it everyday. I have the same stresses that keep you away from exercising as well. I’ve taken plenty of breaks during these times and I know how hard it is to get back. You just have to take the 1st step and not get discouraged.
