From the responses I received when the originally question was asked on i-Meet.com, the White House and their get healthy intuitive would be very happy with everyone except me! I am a gym rat I work out two hours, 6 days a week. I work out if I’m traveling, no excuses! The first thing I do when a client books a hotel for me or if I’m booking the hotel is to check out the hotel’s website to make sure they have a gym. No gym no worries because I will bring my jump rope and elastic bands. I will work out!
Yet on set up days I need not want need either a Starbucks (only) coffee or NOS it’s a ridiculous energy drink and gummy bears. Truth be told anything-gummy works for me. It is so bad that my staff always makes sure there is a hidden bag for me just in case I run out my stash. Don’t get me wrong if we are doing craft services there is always granola bars or some sort of healthy bar, nuts & berries but a coffee and gummies keeps me going all day long.
The trick is to try to balance a healthy diet while traveling and while setting up meetings and trade shows. If it’s a one day set up I’m good to go with gummies and coffee because I know I am back to my normal routine and it qualifies as my cheat day but if I know I have a few days of meetings and trade shows I prepare myself so that I can only snack during set up but to stay focus during meetings. Try is the big word as there is always a large amount of bad for you yet great tasting food sitting around.
What are your tricks to staying focus with your diet during set up and while you are traveling?
I pledge to add nuts and berries to my personal stash and I promise to carry them with me and not back to the office but to eat them before my gummies.
