Oops. Another blog reminder. It has been an even tougher travel week. I have hit CT, NY, Montreal, Boston, Des Moines, Kansas City, Chicago. Denver and I am currently on a flight to San Diego where my first meeting is Monday. I only got two of the cycle workouts done so far but aiming to do a couple more Saturday and attempt the final workout Sunday.

The diet has been shambolic. The US is one massive land mine. My only respite was being at my home in CT over the weekend. Carbs, protein and vegetables are all hard to come by. Fat and sugar are easy. It has been even worse than I remember. Or is it the Midwest?

More reflections in the final blog. Apologies for being a less than present teammate in the second half.

Enjoy the final workout and congrats on the amazing effort and results so many of you have achieved.

I initially read that as “the US is one massive lard mine!”
I bet you are looking forward to your own bed after this trip.
One more sleep!

    Janet, you’ve been such a rock during this cycle. Thank you. Travel safe.

      Can I borrow your air miles? ;)

        Sharm and I are obviously on the same thought train - I read that as lard as well. Good job for doing as well as you can in the states - not easy. Have fun on the final workout and safe travels home.

          @ Sharm and Rob - lard would be appropriate. Last night on the flight from Denver to San Diego - which was diverted to LA due to mechanical issue - the choice was a spinach and garlic deep dish pizza from UNO or a burger, along with deep fried potato sticks and a piece of Eli’s cheesecake in cellophane. No salad or veg! And that is in “first class”.

            Heart attack on a plate then? Oh how the other half lives! I'll be grateful for my cattle class selection then! I was flying last week and tried the special Hindu meal which was pretty ok. I got a fish curry on plain rice with salad and fruit.

              I find vegetables incredibly hard to find at times when travelling. Salads don’t fill the bill enough

                They drench the food in salt and sugar, which is particularly rough considering you’re in a low humidity environment. Stick to the fruit if you can. Safe travels and see you soon!

                  A friend of mine here keeps asking if it's true that everyone in the US is obese. Seems that way sometimes...and it's not hard to see why, especially in the midwest!
