April 5th, 2019 Mystery To Me
Yesterday was a 4-star day: I maintained the integrity of my calorie budget, I remained refined sugar-free, I met my daily water goal, and I stayed well connected with exceptional support.
The past couple of days have been packed tight schedule-wise. When days come like this it requires me to plan better and make sure I'm at least having a good, solid morning foundation routine. Then, I hold on and go!
Morning show this morning, location broadcast midday, a haircut, vehicle service, and I'm about to hit the road for Oklahoma City's Skirvin Hotel, the sight of tonight's Oklahoma Association of Broadcasters Awards Banquet. The meal is a mystery to me, but I'll employ the same strategy I used last year: I'll survey the selections and ask for what I need. It worked perfectly last year, but that was a different venue. We'll see. If the meal doesn't work for my food plan, I'll have a backup plan in my bag, waiting for me after the event. It shouldn't be an issue. For me, the worst would be something covered in a sugary glaze. One thing I've learned along this road is to ask for what I need. Nine times out of ten or better, I've found people will go out of their way to accommodate the special requests. I'm worth it!
I can remember a time when I wouldn't even think to ask for what I need. I'd just accept whatever was served my way as if I didn't have a choice. I do have a choice. Events like this don't come with a menu. Everyone is served the same thing unless you have certain dietary requirements, like me--and I assure you, I won't be the only one!
I'm excited about the awards, catching up with former colleagues I never see but once a year at this event, and seeing/listening to the award-winning segments. It's a good time!
It's going to be a late night! But totally worth every minute!
