One of the reason’s why I was unable to blog was because I was out of town (then when I got back I had a major personal crises that stressed me out to the point where blogging would have become more ranting than helpful) First off let me say that I have been tracking both food and exercise to remain accountable and I’m learning about my strengthens and weakness when it comes to both
I have found that eating while traveling is not difficult but finding healthy options when you literally on the road. Not to long ago I was driving to Milwaukee, in the grand scheme of things it’s not a long ride. I ate a small meal before thinking I would get there before lunch time but about 3/4 of the way there my stomach had other plans, so I had to stop figuring any place I stopped would have a “lighter” menu option… so I went to Hardees. And got a fish sandwich and a strawberry shake…. I already know…so you don’t have to say anything. I put it into the myfitnesspal app and it came out to a a whooping 1200 calories! I’m only allowed 1400 a day.My day was blown and I was pissed, cause it was really good and I enjoyed every single tasty morsel of that darn sandwich.
You think I would have learned my lesson….NO!!! On the way home I stopped at McDonalds for breakfast which consisted of a Sausage Mcmuffin with Egg and cheese, Hash Brown and a Smoothie (I thought I was being smart by getting the smoothie) – 810 calories! Still better than my previous experience but it still pissed me off.
So the next time I need to travel long distance I’m bring healthy snacks with me… I know, I know you’re probably like “DUH!! nobrainer Tyra”.
Had I planned ahead this mistake wouldn’t have been made, but you live and learn, and these little lessons make it easier for next time. So tell me, what’s your favorite traveling snack? Leave comments below.
And as always, when you know better …. you do better!!
