Attempting to be healthy while traveling...

I'm trying to workout and eat right with this job, but it has proven difficult. I gained about 5 pounds around the holidays and I can't seem to shake those LBS! More recently, I've just gone to the grocery at the beginning of the week and stocked up on stuff that used to work for me in college. It used to be that tuna, egg whites and a couple jumping jacks would get me back to where I wanted to be in like a week! Well, that's not happening for me. So, I'm trying to switch it up and maintain a healthy lifestyle while traveling. First and foremost, I bought a workout DVD. 

Jillian Michaels is seriously NUTS... but I love it. I used to love going to workout classes because they pushed me to the absolute limit and this is exactly what I get from this DVD. I'm not so sure about her little catchphrase at the top there though... I can't imagine I'll lose 5 pounds in a week but that would be SWEET.

Even when I had a job where I didn't jump all over this fabulous country of ours on a weekly basis, I got sick of eating lunch and dinner at my house. Mainly because I'm a lousy cook but.. I digress. I have found some semi healthy options for lunch and dinner so check out one of my great finds this week!

I went to Noodles & Co which is right down the street from my hotel... so, a fitness bonus, I walked there! 

I started with the Cucumber and Tomato salad - perfect for summer!
Calories: 80
Fiber: 2 grams
Carbs: 18 grams

Small Mushroom Stroganoff - Better than Hamburger Helper, that's fa sho.
Calories: 210
Fat: 12 grams

That's a pretty good lunch or dinner out for under 300 calories! [if you don't count my glass of red] I'm obviously no expert but I have been looking for ways to cut down while eating out. Hope this helps you if you're on the road or just in a brown bag rut. Enjoy!
