Working is Hard on my Diet

I've written before about how my job was making me fat.  And about how, since being fired (or laid off, or whatever it was), I've lost a few pounds.

I start a new job on Monday, which I'm happy about, despite a couple concerns.  It is actually almost my old job, only I'll officially be employed by a different agency.  And I won't have the same co-workers and stress that they brought on.  I'll also be avoiding a few of the tasks that made my old job so stressful.

Still, I'm a little bit concerned about how this is going to affect my eating and exercise habits.  I can already tell I'm slacking off the healthy eating, just out of stress from preparing to start the new position.  And I'm starting with a bang by travelling for three days.

I hope that once I get settled into the new job, my eating will resume it's healthiness.  I'll be working from home 3-4 days a week, so I should be able to control what goes into my mouth those days, even if the "on the road" days are a bit more difficult.

I already looked at my work calendar compared to the yoga class calendar. and it looks like I can only go one more time in October.  Ugh.

Wish me luck!

That is scary. With traveling, I always find a gym to go to (I do Crossfit, so specifically a Crossfit venue to drop in on). Also, when in doubt, I get a veggie sandwich from Subway with no cheese, no sauces/dressings, but I do drizzle vinegar on it. It's a healthy, filling choice when you are forced to eat out! New jobs are so stressful, for sure, but fight back! :)

You can do it, just put your mind in gear and steer!

Pack yourself portion controlled healthy snacks while you are on the road!

Yes it should be easier since you can work from home!

Keep a food journal! It helps!
I feel your pain....dieting is my life....

Pretty interesting place you've got here. Thanx for it. I like such themes and anything connected to them. I definitely want to read a bit more on that blog soon.

Stay positive!! You can walk when you travel or worse case scenario, throw a yoga mat down in the hotel and do a few stretches! You can do it!!!
