I went out of town for a work conference. I left way early Friday morning and got back Sunday afternoon.
I got to spend TWO whole nights in a hotel by myself and I must admit, it was pretty heavenly.
So, how did I do?
I did manage to get up and go to the gym on one of the two mornings. The first day I totally overslept and didn't make it.
On day one I was perfect with my food. I brought my lunch from home, which was hummus, cucumbers, grapes, and a yogurt.
For dinner I got a Greek salad with chicken and was only able to eat half.
On day two lunch was provided. It was supposed to be a make your own sandwich thing, but I just had the meat and cheese, and of course skipped the bread. However, I did have the dessert. I have NO willpower when it comes to chocolate. None! It was so darn good I dare say it was worth it.
For dinner I had Panera soup and couldn't even finish the whole bowl. Not bad.
Sunday morning I had a ready-to-drink protein shake for breakfast (making up for the dessert!). Then on the morning break I made some instant oatmeal.
I had a protein bar for the ride home.
Overall not too shabby, except for the yummy dessert. Could have been totally worse!
Now that I'm home, I'm completely exhausted.
Last night I went to bed at 8pm. No joke. I slept until 6:00 this morning. That's a lot of sleep! It's 8:30 right now and I'm fighting to keep my eyes open.
Even though the conference was great, I guess it was tiring to sit in so many seminars for hours and hours. I didn't even go out drinking like so many of the other ladies did! I'm such a wimp.
By some miracle I didn't gain any weight while away AND I got my TOM today. Well, that's probably also part of why I'm so tired.
Hoping for another great night of sleep tonight and back to the gym tomorrow morning.
