I spent the last week traveling around the country, performing stage hypnosis shows for colleges. Lots of flying, airports and hotels, and driving rental cars to the performance venues. It’s not helpful in terms of supporting good eating habits. You tend to look for food that’s convenient instead of food that’s healthy, and the hectic pace is a bit stressful, which triggers more urges for crappy food.
Luckily, I’ve been doing this annual tour for fifteen years, so I’ve gotten better and better at managing those factors, and the results show at this week’s weigh-in. I still can do an even better job. I definitely had some times where I grabbed a cookie or had a drink with sugar in it.
It’s particularly important that I get to that next level of clean eating, as I’m now off the second steroid taper, and my itching has come back a little bit. It’s nowhere near as bad as it was, and I want to keep it that way. In fact, I want it gone. In order to achieve that, I must manage my stress even better, push more water, and reduce the sugar and carb intake.
