Fledgist's Journal, 05 June 2011

After a week out of the country, when I had little control over some aspects of my diet, I was worried that I might have shown a gain when I finally weighed-in this morning. Instead, I'm down another pound. I feel very positive about this.

I limited my breakfasts to an egg, a banana, a yoghurt, a slice of toast with butter, a glass of orange juice and a cup of herbal tea. My lunches were always a fibre bar or power bar (never more than 200 calories) with water. Suppers were where I had little control. I tried my best to keep those limited (margherita pizza, for example). I seem to have succeeded.

The sight of the sea every morning and evening does something for the psyche, I am convinced, even if you spend your days in an ugly, concrete conference centre.

Airports, on the other hand, are bad for the soul.

Haha... Airports are bad for food selection as well as your wallet! Congratulations in staying in control... And not gaining. I try to eat non-fried seafood when traveling... I think that helps me.

Wow! You're totally inspirational that you had managed to lose weight when away from home! I find that the hardest thing to do. It really tells me you'll be successful in the long run because you can make decisions that are healthy for you!

Thanks! You're not joking about bad for the wallet. A 16 ounce bottle of flavoured water at the Miami airport cost me more than $3. Talk about pirates of the Caribbean! Thanks for the kind words, Brandy. It did help that I had one morning of walking around the Punda neighbourhood of Willemstad. Other than that, I was very busy. I wasn't feeling the heat much when I was out.
