Going out of town

           I’m going to Nebraska for my grandma’s birthday. She is turning 90! Anyway, I’ve written this a little in advance because I’m probably on a plane or driving to the middle of no-where Nebraska as you are reading this.

            I’m a little worried though. I’ve not taken a big trip since I’ve started the whole meal plan thing. I’ve gone on a few overnights and long weekends and I’ve always packed the food I needed or planned ahead.  I can’t pack all of my food this time since I’m flying!

            This is like my test to see if I can handle my food intake on my own! I can’t really tell my whole Nebraska family to eat on my schedule. They would just laugh at me! I will try to eat appropriately, but I’m going to the land of meat and potatoes! My family is full of amazing cooks too! I will have to refuse all the delicious deserts they make!

            I’m going to try to keep myself in check and I’m going to take a lot of walks as well. The part of Nebraska I go to is very, very hilly. I will just walk a bunch of hills since I can’t get to the gym.  On the plus side though, it is like a 30 minute drive get any fast food! Honestly, you have to drive into a different state to get to a fast food restaurant! So, I’m going to be ok there!

            Overall, I’m going to enjoy myself and not go overboard. This will really be a true test of what I’ve learned over the past year and to see if I can put it all into action on my own! Wish me luck!

            The other difficult thing is that I had to cram 3 workouts in on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. I’ve had to go to the gym at some odd times! I’m super tired from going to the gym on my off days, but I had to. I had no choice because I know I won’t do more than 2 workouts while I’m in Nebraska! I already have 3 done, so 2 more and I’m done for the week!

            I won’t have much internet service while I’m there, so I’m going to have a lot of reading to do when I come back! I might go through blog withdrawal!  


  1. Hope you have a great trip! I'm from Nebraska.. and I can totally understand the difficulties you will have with the food... but I'm sure you will do great!

    Happy 90th to your Grandma.. wow!

  2. I am going out of town this next week too and am worried about the same thing. We just have to make healthy foods choices.. it sucks that many places make it so difficult, but we can do it. Good luck!
