This week is going to present some interesting challenges for me. I’ll be attending some technical training this week at a training facility. I typically take my plastic re-usable Starbucks cup filled with my homemade decaf coffee, but at a training center I won’t have a way to clean it out and store it. I’m also not sure how eating lunch is going to work, so the first day I won’t bring lunch and venture out for lunch near by. I noticed there’s a Jason’s Deli in the area and I’ve scoped out some things I can eat that keeps me in my calorie range. After that I’ll figure out the rest of the week’s food. I also won’t be able to go walking and in order to keep up with working out I’ll have to get up earlier because my travel time to get there is adding 30 minutes to my normal one hour one way.
Goal 1- Keep Drinking Decaf Coffee- I may have to test my lack of an addiction to caffeine this week and just drink bottled water since I won’t be able to take my plastic coffee cup with me. This will be an interesting one. Normally the only coffee provided at these training centers is caffeinated. Maybe I should bring my own decaf hot tea.
Goal 2– Resist eating sugar- In my past experience with training centers they usually provide snacks that include donuts and other sugary treats. I’m going to have to try to resist eating them. I’l probably come up with some portable snack ideas that I can slip into my laptop bag. I haven’t figured out what these will be yet but I’ll come up with a plan
Goal 3- Keep working out at least 4 times a day- I’m getting pretty good at this. Last week I finally saw the first positive effects of this when I weighed in and lost 1.8 pounds this past week. Score!
Goal 4– Eat a veggie snack a day- My goodness…what to do with this one? I’m keeping it on here because I need to find a solution. I think I’ll do some research on finding a vegetable juice that I can keep down. It’s just so gross. I’m sure there are others out there in my situation so perhaps consulting the all knowing Google will provide some answers.
Check in next week to see how I did!
