I'm over in Dublin from Wednesday to Friday this week on a last minute business trip and I'm apprehensive.
When you're staying in hotels it's really really hard to eat healthily, plus there's lots of nights out and drinking to do with the team over there.
Irish hospitality will be the death of me.
So, my plan is a 30 min strength work out in my hotel room for the 2 nights im there focusing totally in core strength. My kettle bell experience today showed me this is where I need to work most.
When we go out for a drink I'm sticking to diet coke and if they ask, I'll be honest and tell them I'm dropping the weight.
The tricky bit will be food. I'm hoping to find a hipster vibe restaurant (there's tons of these in Dublin) that does really nice salads and lean veggie meals. This is a trick I learned (weirdly) from slimming world: if you have to eat out, eat veggie or fish as these are most often the healthiest options.
The fact I'm even worried about this is a complete 360 turn around from my mental state a few weeks ago, so as long as I make the healthiest choices available to me I'll be fine... Hopefully :/
This is my willpower Waterloo. Time to knuckle down.
