I’ve just finished packing for a business trip. A fundraising association I am a member of is sending me to a conference in Baltimore. I leave this afternoon and return home late Wednesday night.
Trips of any kind, business or pleasure used to send me into “vacation-mode” thinking. I would eat foods I normally wouldn’t eat as if being in another city gave me license to indulge. Once home I would be mad at myself for gaining weight, plus I had so many addictive substances in my system, I would find myself in yet another relapse.
As I’ve shared before, I don’t know if I have another comeback in me. I’ve been eating and drinking cleanly for quite a while now. I only have a daily reprieve from all of my “isms” so I can’t guarantee you or myself that I’ll follow the straight and narrow while I’m gone. But I have planned ahead and have poised myself for success. Here’s how:
I won’t be blogging while I’m gone, but I’ll send Tweets via Twitter as a way of keeping myself accountable.
(A note about comments: In addition to not blogging, I’ll not have an opportunity to monitor comments. Those who’ve commented on this blog before will be automatically approved. New visitors can leave a comment for me to approve once I’m in front of the computer. I wish I didn’t have to moderate, but the last time I loosened the controls, some p0rn0 folks slipped through.)
I’ll blog here as soon as possible upon my return home. And I’ll be brutally honest regarding the trip.
