I think, for us, being continuously 'away' makes a real difference. This weekend, the 4th, we have a lot of visitors. For my wife that equates to a lot of cooking of big meals and deserts. That rarely happens on the road.
I'm on a little diet this month, actually a severe diet that will be modified due to company. In the diet process we figured out the calories in our daily breakfast of 1 egg, a strip of bacon, a piece of toast and a cup of coffee. It's only about 200 calories. When I was a homebody that would easily be doubled with some homefries thrown in. Not to mention the inevitable donut with coffee at work.
Interestingly the 200 calorie breakfast is really satisfying. Usually my emerging child requires a mid-morning snack, usually some blueberries or the like.
This is all a big change from our previous working lives and has been positive for us.
Good health to all,
