Have you ever noticed that it's hard to eat good food on the road? I just had a long weekend in the Bay Area, and I found it ridiculously easy to get a scone or cheese danish, but not so easy to get vegetables. Even so, I had some good things happen.
One is that I realized I'm not willing to eat crappy or stale food just because I'm a little hungry. One is that I found walking around San Francisco pretty easy. Another thing I noticed is that I can actually eat pretty normally for short periods without tracking. Don't get me wrong--I am tracking this week. But it gave me a glimpse of hope--that I'll be able to stay disciplined without being too weird. Sometimes.
Mostly, I found that I wasn't going through the city entirely ruled by food. I had a couple of desserts, and I had the most amazing strawberry croissant at a place in Berkeley. I don't have to have such things, but I can have them from time to time. It's nice to know.
We'll see how the weigh-in goes on Sunday. Didn't make it in SF (and that's ok, too).
