So a bit of catch up.. I am now on the west coast. Because of all of the rain on Monday my trip out west was twice as long as it should have taken, as we were re-routed to St. Louis, then to Vegas and finnaly to Reno. To say the least , I had a bit of a panic set in because I was definitely was not prepared to handle my food during travel. Yes I had protein bars, and I brought some protein packets to mix in water, but it was not enough to hold me over and by the time I arrived at my final destination, I was tired, cranky and hungry.
So on Tuesday, the second part of my dilema was compounded by the fact that despite the fact that I am working on the west coast, I still have to keep up with the east coast hours (and teleconferences) and then just as the day winds down I pick up on Shanghai calls and schedules. So the trip for me, is the day that never ends. It's 1:00 am (wednesday) and I am still catching up on Tuesday's work. This is the stuff that stresses me out.. not enough hours to get everything done , and I am non stop tied to my computer. No real opportunity to break away and get some exercise in to burn calories.
And as far as weight loss goes, I have no idea. how I am doing. There is no scale in the hotel . I am constipated so that doesn;t help. And I am trying to take some genter fiber supplements, to get some action but not so much that I need to scope out the quickest and least conspicous route to the ladies room. My food choices for today included 1 cup of coffee, 3 bottles of water two protein shakes, and the turkey and cheese off of a sandwhich (no bread), I also snacked on three protein meal bars (which I ate not because I was hungry but because I can feel the stree creeping in on me). ARGGGHHH..
Why can't I deal with stress better. This is what I need to learn to better master in my life. Stress will never go away, so I need to come up with some ways to keep it in check and not consume me.
I have a full day wednesday and need to work on a presentation on the flight home on Thursday for a meeting on Friday.
I know this is a boring post, but its all I can think of right now.. and I am partially delaying having to write an email to my boss that is not going to go over well..
Ok, so I need to pat myself on the back and re assure my self that I am winning this battle, as I am not eating a bag of candy bars; I am not pigging out on some cookies that are available at the front desk, or ordering room service with a midnight snack.. no I am going to take great pride in this win in this moment over, get some sleep and prepare for the next day.
Good Night.. Sleep tight..
