2. Go Outside To Run
I always say, oh I'll go to the gym in the hotel. Well, that's fine and good... and I MIGHT go once if I'm lucky. Instead of committing to going to the gym, I'm going to commit to running/walking outside. It's February in Miami for pete's sake. I'm going to take my C25k app and hit the pavement 5 times. That's my goal, 5 times.
3. Keep Fruit within an Arm's Reach
I'm not sure what it is about these boat shows, but I get savagely hungry. I'll be standing there at 11am and I feel like my stomach will literally begin eating itself and I will pass out and die if I don't eat 48 slices of pizza, stat.
In the past, my plan when I get that hungry, that early is to just wait it out until at least noon. By then though, I'm so hungry I really do eat 48 slices of pizza. Ok fine, it was just 44 slices.
Not this trip. The second I feel hungry, I'm not going to deprive myself. I'm going to eat. I'll make my boss take us to the grocery store on day one and I'll pack oranges, apples and carrots each day, and I'll eat as much of those kinds of items that I want. I'm pretty sure none of us got fat from eating too many orange slices.
So, If I'm hungry, I'll eat.
4. Automatically set half to the side
This feels very wasteful to me, so I'm reluctant to even write it. Our meals are all paid for on this trip so we won't exactly be skipping dinner and eating leftovers the next night. I am going to list this tip though because I follow the Skinny Confidential and she always talks about doing this. I would be totally fine to have a body even remotely like hers, so she must be on to something with this tip.
If I make a bad choice -- I know damn well I'll get the fish and chips in Miami because that's my kryptonite there -- I'm automatically going to move half to the side and simply indulge, enjoying the other half.
Again, since meals are paid for, most of the guys I travel with opt to go out to breakfast each day. I am going to decline that option on this trip. I don't need a hotel breakfast buffet seeing as I'll be hungry again around noon, regardless if I just eat a breakfast bar or if I stuff myself with bacon, eggs and a short stack.
Plus, then I get to sleep later #winning.
(Or I guess I could go get in one of those 5 workouts, but sleep sounds a lot more fun)
So those are my goals for this work trip. Does anyone have any other suggestions? I'm all ears! Follow all of the beautiful sights and scenery from my Miami trip via Snapchat: iamsarahwebb
