California Love

Still out in the middle of nowhere California working.  It's a pretty heavy labor assignment I have out here - I'm standing up pretty much all day doing inventory.  Not the glamorous part of my job for sure - but something that has to get done.  It's about 100+ every day here, so I'm pretty hot and tired by the time we are done.  I haven't worked out because of it yet and that's very annoying - but I'm not sure I can do anything about it.  We will see how today goes and if I'm not so tired now that my body has had one day of this work.

Struggling with meals out here.  The guys I'm with will eat pretty much anything and have a strong affinity for Jack in the Box for every meal.  Not exactly my cup of tea, but I have no rental this assignment, so I'm pretty  much stuck.  Just trying to make the best choices and chugging LOTS of water because of the weather and salt content of the food.  I really hate not having a car - it ruins my ability to really do what I need to do.  Grocery shop for healthy foods, eat at better restaurant choices, ect.  I'll have one our next inventory trip, already decided that!

Other than that, just trying to do what I need to do.  I read a really inspiring blog post from a friend of a friend that put some things back in perspective for me.  It's not a diet plan any different than what I'm trying to do right now - eat clean and move my butt.  It was just written in a really really straightforward get your shit together and do what you know you are supposed to do kind of way.  And I needed that after these last few travel days that have made me feel that I'm falling off track.  She broke it down in a numbered list and I'm thinking of tackling 2 of them a week or every 2 weeks or something.  It was a good breakdown of exactly what I have had in my head to do but as someone who has actually done it - it was written much less cluttered than how my head has been trying to process it.  Clarity from someone who has been there done that I guess.  I'm still milling over the list and how to go about doing it because it is good sound advice in a clear action plan kind of way and maybe I'll post more about that later this week after I process it fully.
