Working With What I Got

Sweets,

I am in Vegas all week for a work conference and I am freaking out! This is no vacation let me tell you. I have a jam packed schedule. Between presentations, meetings, and "optional" team building post work outings, I don't know how I am supposed to keep up on my diet and workout plan. Breakfast, lunch, and dinners will be provided for me. EECK. I will have very little control over what I eat. Breakfast and lunches will be buffets....

This is a conference of mostly men. This means the food will be more....um, meat and potatoes (one dinner is at a chop house- gag me). Breakfast will probably be donuts, bagels, cinnamon rolls. Why do most men (except for my awesome husband) act like eating fruits and veggies are not masculine enough options? I guess guys think big guts make them look powerful.
I don't see any pink, geez!
The other night I watched a great film on streaming Netflix. It was a documentary about the health benefits of juicing. It was titled Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead.

This guy did a juice fast for 60 days! Talk about committed- nothing but juice for 60 days! Mind you, he was not chugging Tropicana. He was juicing his own fruits and veggies. He traveled across the US in his car and kept his juicer in the back of his SUV. He used the power outlet in his trunk to run the juicer. Would it be a good career move for me to bring my juicer as a carry on? I could run up to my room between presentations and whip up a green drink!



So what am I going to do? Buying a second plane ticket for Mr. Juicer is not an option. Well, I have come up with a plan of attack. First, breakfast is served from 7-8am. I am going to get up at at 6am and rush down to the hotel gym. Unfortunately, I am supposed to do 60 minute cardio sessions, but I am going to have to condense it to 30 minutes. I will then have 45 minutes to get conference ready and head to breakfast with 30 minutes to spare. Each day. Yeah for me. For food, I am going to follow the plate as much as possible:

I am going to go my best to fill my plate mostly with fruits and veggies. I mean, they have to offer SOME fruits and veggies right? I will eat lean protein if I can find it. At the chop house (gag me), I will be "the one" that orders the grilled chicken. I feel confident I will be able to find wheat toast or something. I am going into this with the following mantra:

I will make the best choices that are available to me.

Sweets, do you have any tips for me?
