How To Stay On Track When You Travel

Friday, November 6th, 2015

travelDo you tell yourself all kinds of stories about how hard it is to stick to your eating plan when you travel?

I used to do the same thing. Until I realized that it’s always within my control. No matter how many restaurants I go to. No matter how delicious the food. No matter how many unique experiences I have.

It all comes down to deciding. Deciding what you want to do ahead of time.

Deciding how you’ll eat. You don’t have to know WHAT you’ll eat. But if you have in place the basics of how you’ll eat, you’re all set.

Here’s why.

When you really want something, like losing extra weight and taking care of yourself, you need to make some big decisions. Ahead of time.

So when you’re out in the world, you don’t have to decide a thousand times what to eat, over and over again.

It doesn’t matter who you’re with. What the menu says. Or what country you’re in.

What matters is your decision to be committed to yourself. It’s your decision to be the kind of woman you admire. And this is something you decide before you go.

So all those little, several-times-a-day decisions are easy.

Because they’re all guided by the big one, which is:

I’m the kind of woman who takes care of myself no matter where I am.

And so your decisions will follow. And you can leave the stress at home when you travel.

“But it’s hard to eat well when I travel” Is that true??

Saturday, April 10th, 2010

Yesterday was a travel day. Spring break. Up very early.

I brought healthy, good-tasting food with me to eat along the way.

But, by the time I was squished into my plane seat, watching my husband chowing down on a good looking sandwich and chips, I felt a longing. I wasn’t hungry, so what was going on?

My old ‘lack’ fears were coming up.

As David plunged into his second bag of chips, I disconnected from my body and connected to my old refrains of “it’s not fair” and “what if there’s not enough for me?”

I ate things without any hunger, and I ate things I wasn’t supposed to eat on my new doctor prescribed soy-dairy-gluten free Rx (don’t ask!). I threw caution to the wind and checked out.

In the moment, I put aside the concept of my own happiness and chose immediate gratification.

On and off, for the rest of the travel day, I found my old mantra coming up: “What the heck, I’m on vacation!”

So, I sat and wrote.

Travel and the Journal

I wrote in the journal that’s always with me. The one my family makes fun of, as in “Mom’s writing in her journal, again”.

I didn’t beat myself. That would be pointless.

But I was genuinely curious about why I chose to disconnect. So I wrote down my fears. I found my painful thoughts. And I replaced them with thoughts that made me feel better.

For the rest of the day and evening, I stayed peacefully connected.

No struggle.

No clenched fists.

No threats.

Just a conscious decision.
