How to Deal When Travel and Work Get the Best of You

Alanna is still very busy with her career and ends up not working out as much as she would like due to her schedule.

I hate to sound like a broken record, but Im ridiculously busy. Ridiculously busy beyond my control, and between my ridiculous travel and work, Im exhausted. The thing I hate about this is that inevitably and annoyingly, I end up not working out as much as I want.

I have to get better at balancing my time, but everything makes me exhausted. Ive still been working out with Dianna, but my volleyball teams didnt play and I had a lot of other things going on. I ate better knowing that I wouldnt be able to make it to the gym. Until the weekend that is, when I ended up in Pittsburgh.

Pittsburgh is a great town, but they put fries in their salads. Fries in their salads! And tons of cheese. I made the mistake of ordering a grilled chicken salad and it was like ordering chicken cheese fries with a side of lettuce!

I also ended up at a meeting and indulged in some fantastic cake. So, I fell off the horse a bit. Ive been awful at writing down everything that Ive been eating, but Marissa made the suggestion to start writing things down especially when I know Ive had a few bad days. Next week Im going to give it a shot.

Alright, back to the grind. Talk to you guys soon!
