I woke up this morning at 7am to catch a 10am flight at an airport that was about an hour away from where I live. Believe me when I say, I was set to travel for the next three days. Armed with a package of rice cakes, a box of Special K bars, my Weight Watchers Points Books, my Weight Watchers Points Calculator, my vitamins, workout clothes, my new scale, my camera, and my bottle of water I was out door heading to the airport.
I spent the entire morning and a good part of the afternoon in the air. I have to say something before I proceed with the rest of today's post. Do they make seats on airplanes for larger people? Every flight I have ever been on has the smallest seats!!! If you are plus size and you can't fit in a regular seat you either have to purchase two seats right next to each other or you have to shell out more money to sit in first class. I do not think that is fair. I know being over weight is a problem that we, as individuals, have to control ourselves. But coming from a lot of years of being over weight, it is not easy control. I would hope that one day, some airline company will make it a little more comfortable for people with weight issues to fly.
Anyway, after I landed in Columbus, SC, I drove another 2 hours to Charleston. Let me tell you what, there is a Subway restaurant literally every ten miles and it doesn't matter which major highway you are on. You will find a Subway some how. I finally got to the hotel around 6pm today and after a full day of traveling I was tired. But of course, my workaholic curse came out to play and I forced myself to finish a few things before I sat down to write my blog for today. In the past, I would have worked, ate dinner, and went to sleep after a long day of traveling. However, I went out of my way to find myself a healthy dinner and I worked out at the hotel gym!!! Yes, I survived the day without straying from the mission.
With that being said, let's get to the details of the day:
Meals of the Day (The Heavy Man = 41 Points)
(For everyone who is new to the blog, I follow the Weight Watchers Points System)
Breakfast - 2 Special K Bars, Fruit Cup, and a 6oz serving of Chobani Strawberry Greek Yogurt = Points 8
Early Afternoon Meal - Grilled Chicken Sandwich with a side of apple slices (Burger King in the Charlotte Airport) = Points 11
Late Afternoon Meal - 6' Turkey sub on whole wheat bread with a slice of american cheese and a bag pf baked chips (Subway while driving 2 hours to Charleston, SC) = Points 9
Dinner - Ham and Swiss cheese on whole wheat roll with a cup fruit cup = Points 13
Dessert - 2 chocolate rice cakes = Points 2
Total Points Eaten Today = 43 points (2 points over my limit). I consider this a very big win while traveling.
I pushed my self after a long day of traveling to run for 30 mins on the elliptical machine at the hotel fitness center. Tomorrow I am going to do my upper body workout plan. I will post the results on tomorrow's post.
