My strategy for eating out when away from home is to make as many healthy choices as possible while occasionally treating myself. Also, I try to incorporate more walking into my day.
I got my Starbucks fix this morning before the meetings started. I succumbed the urge to order a scone and latte knowing that it wouldn't fill me up, and instead purchased a bowl of oatmeal (which I ate with a little brown sugar and dried fruit) and a medium passion tea. After the first meeting of the day, I snacked on a banana just so I wouldn't be famished by lunch.
Once again at lunch, Chick-Fil-A called my name, and I was really craving a sandwich and fries. I can't remember the last time I ate a chicken sandwich, so I compromised and ordered the sandwich, but with a fruit cup instead of fries.
The trade show also had its fair share of goodies. Among the bounty I brought back to the room were pens, chip clips, a lint roller, mouse pads, a koozie, and candy! After returning to the hotel room I snacked on some almonds, walnuts, and an orange that my roommate brought from home, and also a small pack of Nerds.
Tonight should be fun since we're heading over to watch the Atlanta Thrashers play the Buffalo Sabres. I haven't been to a hockey game in years and I'm so excited! We're going to walk to the game, which is nearly a mile away, so that will count for some exercise. Tomorrow I'll have to head to the gym for a morning workout.
