I have REALLY fallen off the bandwagon lately as far as diet goes. My eating is terrible! For a long stretch I was eating 80-100g of carbs per day and it was working great, but only if I prepared all my own foods and only ate out occasionally. Due to being insanely busy (basically I took on too much), that has not been happening consistently.
I got a new job that I will start tomorrow. It's a big step up for me and involves a large variety of work throughout the province. So it means I'll have some days in the office, some days out and about visiting schools, and some days travelling by ferry, bus, or air to school districts or conferences or other events.
The office involves a 1 km walk to and from the bus stop, which is great because I've also fallen off the bandwagon as far as exercise goes. I'd like to start packing lunches every day (already done for tomorrow). With my old job I used to do this, but as soon as I started connecting with colleagues and discovered the places to eat nearby, that's when I fell. I also got in the habit of buying my own food when I travelled, which I'll definitely be trying to do again; between Type 1 and multiple food allergies I find it way less stressful, but it does take a ton of organization!!
I think my biggest challenge will be staying organized, since this job is such a variety and won't allow me to just fall into a routine where I can pack the same things. And also has a long commute (1.5 hours each way), although I'll probably end up moving in a few months. I'm wondering how others who have variable jobs that involve travel (either within a city or broader) do for food. And also open to any ideas for things that are not necessarily super low carb, but portable (I take public transit), don't require refrigeration (although I do have a lunch kit that has an ice pack). Also any cool gadgets you've found to be helpful. I have a tiny portable food scale, but when I'm organized enough to pack my own food I just weigh it all and calculate the carb count before I go.
