4 Days of Unplanned Eats

Posted Nov 11 2013 7:00am

Last Thursday I headed to Providence, RI for a 4 day conference.  I knew I’d have little control over my eats for the long weekend, which was both exciting and scary all at the same time.

Thursday morning I made myself a hearty breakfast at home consisting of an English muffin, 2 eggs, and 1/2 an avocado before heading to the airport.  Once I arrived in Providence, I headed over to the hotel gym and busted out 35 minutes on the spin bike.  It was good to get a workout in after my flight, especially because I didn’t know if I’d have time to workout the rest of the weekend.


After my workout I headed over to Panera Bread where I ordered 1/2 of the Bacon Turkey Bravo sandwich without bacon and the wheatberry salad.


For dinner Thursday night, I enjoyed my first conference meal.  I served myself 1/2 a plate of salad with ranch dressing and a vegetable (no cheese) calzone.


I started my Friday off with a 20 minute workout and a bottle of Grape Spark .

For breakfast I had a honey Chobani, eggs, potatoes, watermelon, bacon, and coffee.


For lunch Friday, I had half a plate of salad, mashed potatoes, a chicken drumbstick, and a piece of BBQ salmon.


For dinner Friday night I had a little bit of everything.  Potatoes, lettuce, tomatoes, mozzarella, a piece of steak, and salmon.


Saturday’s breakfast was almost identical to Friday’s, but I threw in a venti Starbucks coffee.


Saturday for lunch I made a large salad topped with taco meat (not pictured) and then later enjoyed a KIND bar as a snack (brought from home).

For dinner we had chicken Parmesan (which was awesome) and a salad topped with tomatoes and mozzarella.


Sunday, my final day at the conference, I enjoyed another glorious plate of eggs, potatoes, bacon, and strawberries for breakfast.


As we left the conference, I grabbed a roasted vegetable wrap to go.  It was a little on the oily side, but a good grab and go lunch.


I had an absolutely amazing time at my work conference and obviously enjoyed the food.  I tried to first fill half of my plate with veggies and then stayed away from bread and desserts.  As much as I may have wanted a bagel with breakfast or a piece of chocolate cake, I knew I didn’t need to add any additional calories to my plate.

In the end though, I was excited to return to DC, to get back to my meal plan, and to start my AdvoCare Cleanse !
