5% Spring Challenge Blog #3
Tuesday, May 27, 2014
OK, day 3 of blogging. This blogging doesn't get any easier. It is encouraging though to see the comments left by team members on my previous blogs.
My thought for today was how tough it is to stick to our nutritional and physical activity regimens while we are traveling. Being away from home takes you away from usual daily routines and you have less flexibility in scheduling activities and meals. Food is not always readily available and when it is available it might not be as nutritious as what you have at home. When you are really hungry you tend to overeat and not be as selective about what you do eat.
I only got in a 40 minute walk today because again we were up late and had to leave early this morning. For food we made some sandwiches to take with us on our travels. After 2 hours driving we stopped at a grocery store to pick up some fruit and snacks. We chose dried apricots for snacks instead of the evil bag of chips. After driving for about 6 hours we saw the DQ sign ahead and decided to treat ourselves to ice cream. Hmm it was good but not something we have at home.
We only have a 5 hour drive left to be home tomorrow. Will try to get my usual walk in the morning and hopefully the rain stops.
