Necessity is the mother of invention, right?
I am 150 miles from home and have spent the past 8 hours at my daughter’s volleyball tournament, enjoying the full compliment of perks public high school gymnasiums have to offer.
Uncomfortable bleachers? Check.
Loud whistles and overzealous parents who loudly overestimate their kid’s talent? Check.
Terrible odors coming from every direction? Check.
Eating lots of crappy fast-food because thats all that is available? UNCHECK!
Just because i am spending 48 hours on the road at this 2-day tournament does not mean I have to sacrifice my eating habits or my workouts and this is where creativity comes in handy. I have known about this trip for months so i was able to plan for it, which means I can stick to my dietary principles in spite of not being at home where I can cook and prepare what I want. I admit that eating healthily on the road is not the most convenient thing to do but it can be done. And because i can bring Beachbody on demand with me anywhere i go…i have no excuse!
The first thing I did was research hotels and I found one with a fridge so I could bring the essential ingredients I needed for my Shakeology. I have a Nutibullet so making the shake is easy. Any standard grocery store freezer bag serves as a great vehicle for keeping items cold while traveling from home to the final destination. I also made some snacks to bring with me; roasted chick peas, veggies and kale are easy to pack and take up next to no space. And WATER…water is huge. And all i need for that is my nalgene bottle. I mean seriously, i have no reason to get off track. There really is no excuse for not being able to eat well while traveling or stick to my workout plan. It just takes effort and a little planning. It can be done.
It is one of the best things i found using our new program 2B mindset. I have learned so much about making this program a way of life. It is sustainable and it doesn’t matter what is happening in my life…i can stay on track. I have been traveling the last 6 weeks. Every weekend a road trip, living the hotel life…and i am still able to make it happen. I have continually lost weight over the craziness that is life. I didnt think it was possible. But, with 2B Mindset…it is.
I am proudly nestled in my bed in my hotel room watching TV and spending time with my family with absolutely no guilt. I still have an entire day of volleyball to watch tomorrow and I am in good shape. I drove by every fast food joint imaginable today and I wasn’t the least bit tempted because I had food in my room waiting for me. I have snacks for tomorrow and am ready for another great day because I planned ahead.
