I just returned from a training out of town. The training was actually really good. It was on my expertise of substance abuse, but I learned some new things and I continue to be amazed at what research shows and how a drug addict's journey can be SO much like the weight loss journey. I'll be talking more about that later.
So this conference was held at a fancy hotel. Let's talk about the bad first and get that out of the way. The food they served during the conference was actually pretty healthy. But there was a LOT of it, and I ate and ate and ate and ate. It was absolutely pathetic. I just am not able to regulate myself when there is a huge table full of delicious - and free - food.
However, I was pretty successful when it comes to exercising. I left Wednesday afternoon and made sure I ran before I left. Then, both Thursday and Friday I got up early and used the really nice fitness room they have. As I was running on the elliptical yesterday morning at 6:45 AM I asked myself - "Who is this person??" Who gets up at the crack of dawn when you could sleep in? I guess that is me, as hard as it is to believe!
So it was a mixed bag this trip. I weighed myself this morning and of course, I am up a couple of pounds. We'll see what the real damage is in a few days. But I know what I have to do to get back down and I will start that!
Happy weekend everyone!
