Healthy Food Conspiracy

I have very good intentions of eating healthy on my work trips. Usually I make a trip to the grocery store when I arrive wherever I am and buy at least a bag of baby carrots. However, this plan doesn’t seem to be working out so well. On one trip, I bought the carrots and put them in the hotel refrigerator. And that was it. The carrots and I never saw each other again. It wasn’t until I got home that I realized I left them in the fridge. (Let’s hope the hotel maid likes health food.) Total carrots consumed = 0. On this trip, I brought 2 bags of baby carrots and put them in the hotel fridge. The next morning I discovered that the fridge setting was way too cold and everything in the fridge froze, including the carrots. I let them thaw and then ate one. Though it was orange and looked like a carrot, it tasted nothing like one. Total carrots consumed = 1. Clearly, my track record for health food on the road hasn’t been so good. Yet, my mom just gave me a bag of candy for an early Valentine’s gift. Since they’re not in the refrigerator, there’s little chance that they’ll freeze, and because I’m a chocolate addict, there’s zero chance that I’m forgetting them. Is it a still conspiracy if you happily accept the situation?

I think it would be very hard to eat healthy on a trip....It's so much fun to eat at new places....at least you have good intentions!!!!!!

I feel bad to admit it but I've ate totally unhealthy for the past week. I blame the holiday. At least you have a good reason...that horrible fridge.

It is very hard to stick to a healthy diet if you travel a lot. On the other hand (somehow) it is never too hard to find your favorite candies! LOL

Maybe one of the reasons I like travel is because it's a great excuse to eat yummy food! I have some baby carrots in my fridge right now, but I think I'll have a cupcake instead. ;-)
