No…not my wedding. Trust me, ya’ll would know if that was on the horizon.
Tomorrow, Mitch and I are driving to Merced, CA with Mitch’s dad and his wife. Mitch’s cousin is getting married, which we know means I get to wear a dress and eat cake. (Oh wait, it’s not all about me? Hmm…) I have about 4 episodes of Scrubs and 8 hours of Jillian Michaels podcasts plus the book The Courage to Start: A Guide to Running for Your Life to keep me occupied for the trips up and back.
I plan on working out in the hotel gym Saturday morning before the wedding. I also downloaded some free yoga podcasts off iTunes so hopefully I get a chance to try them out as well (the wedding doesn’t start until 4 and let’s just say this part of California is not exactly filled with excitement—I’ll have time to kill).
I’ve packed some healthy snacks and breakfast items for the trip. I might have to have breakfast with the family, but honestly, I’d rather just eat a bowl of oatmeal in our hotel room and save the money (and calories).
- hummus (garlic and chive flavor)
- green tea
- Clif nectar bar (my favorite flavor)
- peanut butter
- assorted vegetables
- plus, Mitch is bringing whole wheat bagels and an avocado
This is a short trip, or I probably would have packed even more. We’ll have a mini-fridge and a coffee maker in our room, but no microwave.
What are your favorite snacks to bring on weekend/road trips? How do you avoid overdoing it at events like weddings?
I’m going to try to go with the “worth it” rule: avoid eating the boring, everyday foods like rolls or rice, and splurge on the good stuff…like champagne and dessert! And I’m also going to try to ignore the food and focus on the company I’m with. However, I don’t know Mitch’s extended family that well, and sometimes when I get social anxiety, I eat. But all I can do is the best I can…that’s all any of us can do, right?
Have a great weekend, friends!
