But what is a girl to do when she's traveling for business and forced to follow someone else's schedule?
Next week I'm headed to Chicago for business. The agenda? Wednesday night cocktail party/schmooze fest with the CEO. Wine and hors d'oeuvres a plenty...Piles of protein - Who knows? I'm thinking I'll fast most of the day until I get to Chicago (airline food sucks anyway) and find some kind of massive protein to eat before the party. I'll bring some BCAAs and my shaker cup to help tide me over. At the worst, maybe I can get some kind of protein and veggies in Minneapolis on my layover. Yippee.
Thursday I'm planning a major refeed - my first, actually. I haven't eaten authentic deep-dish Chicago-style pizza in about 13 years and I don't plan on holding back this time. Luckily, I think it'll be on the menu for lunch, so I'll have the rest of the day to behave - and hit the fitness center at the hotel.
And Friday I will be flying through my entire feeding window of 1-9 pm...so I will do my best to seek out protein and will be sure to pack my Casein as well. Not sure what kind of portable protein snacks I can take as most protein bars are loaded with carbs...Maybe I'll hit up Martin's following on Facebook and see if they have any suggestions.
