Trying to eat well on the road

Day 51: had my 2 shakes then decided to try some Splenda-sweetened chocolate. Big mistake.
Ew and p.u. (What does PU stand for anyway? I sure know what it means!) I'm just glad I had those chocolates (only 2 of them btw) several hours before the show. Yowza!

I've been eating such clean food I can't get away with eating garbage anymore! It'll be easy to avoid artificial sweeteners knowing the smallest amount means an afternoon of bathroom runs!

Speaking of garbage (haha), went to Waffle House after having a super fun show tonight. One of my favorite parts of traveling and doing shows is after-show meals with friends.

We made quite the spectacle of ourselves, laughing, singing, etc. I'm eating low glycemic, so I had 2 eggs, 4 strips of bacon, and hashbrowns (hashbrowns are not that low glycemic but they're also not pie- and not Splenda!!).

If I did this every day it would be a major problem but I don't travel as much as I used to (constantly, from 99-2001, 2003-2008). It can be a challenge to eat well on the road.

The healthy plant-based shakes and snacks keep me on track for 2 of 3 meals. It's that 3rd meal where temptation can creep in. Generally I've done quite well with eating on this trip. Just had to have 1 Waffle House meal while in the land of Waffle House!

Tomorrow, back on track! No artificial sweeteners and no hashbrowns :)
