6 Pounds of Chicago

My problem, when it comes to diet and exercise, isn't knowing what is right and wrong and isn't even the lack of having a good plan.  It's that I posses no discipline. Zip, zero, zilch.  Berta, the 300 pound Italian girl inside me, Berta, always wins out when there are tasty treats about.

I headed out for two weeks of business travel.  I packed up apples, halos, and granola bars.  I cut up celery sticks, cucumbers, and carrots.  My iPod was loaded with awesome workout tunes and I packed up an extra bag just for sneakers, sports bras, and running gear.

The plan: eat well, exercise daily, and use these two weeks of business travel to amp up physically.

The reality:  the food is really amazing in Chicago and I gained 6 pounds in two weeks.

Since I scrapped the first plan, I am now on to the second.  It took 2 weeks to put it on so I am going to give myself 2 weeks to take it off starting Sunday.  Why not start today you ask?  Big weekend plans, and  my hubby loves hanging out with Berta.
