I apologize for my digital absence. Over the past two weeks I've been tied up with my brother's wedding. It went well, but now I'm ready to get back on track with the KFB.
Some observations on travel in America:
Eating healthy while on the go is hard.
I have no idea how anyone does it. It's much easier if you have control of your transportation or are with others of similar dietary interests. Alas, I had neither. I did the best I could, vying for the "healthier" choices, but we all know what that means -- it's still bad. Not KFB approved, thats for sure.
The KFB is portable.
This is one of my favorite aspects of all of Patrick's teachings: you don't need a gym! Now to be honest, I am behind with my workouts as I was editing video morning to night when not engaged in other family activities, but it felt good to be able to throw my jump rope and pushup bars into my suitcase.
Be an example, not a preacher.
This is particularly hard for me. I love to discuss and debate. However, I have the most impact on those around me when I demonstrate healthy choices. Rattling off, "This has 31 grams of sugar!" can be annoying to some. I will say that it helps to make tangible comparisons. For example, "This has more sugar than a can of soda." Everyone accepts that soda is high in sugar. To exceed that shows how rich in sugar something is.
Alas I am home and feeling better as I was sick yesterday. I am sorry to keep you hanging. Being that travel appears to be a regular part of my future (my next trip is next week), I'd be grateful to hear how you cope with travel and health.
