FringyLiz's Journal, 27 May 2014

I made it! I made it! I didn't stress-eat yesterday! And the ghods have rewarded me by letting me note another pound off! Whoo hoo! Also, a favourite skirt of mine now zips all the way up (I had been using a safety pin for the last few months) so I'm really losing inches, too!

I realised as I was walking around postering the neighbourhood that the theatre festival will be in that I could do a bit of extra planning now, look into restaurants and cafes with healthy options, and then I wouldn't scramble during the festival as much. I'd be able to plan a stop between shows ahead of time, knowing what was there instead of grabbing whatever came to hand because I didn't know when else I'd have a chance.

Last year at this festival I saw 68 shows in 10 days. This year, I'll be doing that AND producing my own show, with venues up to 4 miles apart and only 10-15 minutes in between to cover that distance. I'll be doing it all on foot, with a bag full of posters and flyers (about 40 pounds) on my back. Adding the weight of a cooler and pre-packed breakfasts, lunches and dinners is NOT an option. Nor is sacrificing some of the 4-5 hours of sleep I'll manage each night in order to prepare them a good use of resources. Convenience foods will be the only possible foods, but if I know which Dep has prepared salads, and which rotisserie chicken has a sugarless glaze ahead of time, it'll help make for good choices. There will be times when just grabbing a slice of pizza will be the only possible option, or a chocolate bar is the nearest source of calories, but I'll be running enough to burn off small deviations, if I can keep the majority of my meals healthy.
