I went to DragonCon this weekend, and had a pretty great time. Unfortunately, however, there wasn't nearly enough food packed to feed my boyfriend and I. So because he's diabetic and has high blood pressure, I decided to leave almost all of the packed food for him and just buy food at vendors and fast food places.
Obviously I went over my calorie and sodium goals every day, because I didn't have my pick of healthy places to eat. But I don't feel badly about it. I only ate more than I should on one or two occasions, and I didn't buy any desserts at all. Not even the totally tempting cheesecake. I did discover that I have a weakness for deals and combos, as both times that I ate more than I probably should have were due to wanting to get a better deal. But, for the most part, I avoided it.
I also walked a LOT, often uphill and in a hurry. My feet hurt so badly by the last day that I actually had trouble even standing for more than a minute or two. So I'm sure that helps balance out eating the bad food. I'm not saying people should use that as an excuse to eat fast food, but if you're stuck eating fast food, at least try to get some extra exercise in.
Overall, I'd say I did pretty well. Can't wait to find out what my new weight is this Friday. Hopefully the trip didn't hurt my weight too badly.
