NOT gain weight traveling? How I made it happen

How I learned to NOT gain weight traveling:  How to NOT gain weight traveling. A few weeks ago, I wrote about the frustration of gaining weight traveling. Traveling as much as I do, I have found the constant yo-yoing frustrating, but I was hoping to figure out a way to stop. I said I had a trip coming up and I’d let you know if I could travel and NOT gain weight. Well, I did it! I didn’t gain a pound on this trip I just took to Sweden and Denmark. Hallelujah! Avoiding alcohol on the plane: When you fly international, airlines offer free wine or beer inflight. In the past I have always had a glass or two on the flight, but this time, I drank water only. Wine on planes is not that great, so why waste calories on a not so tasty wine? Besides, there has been lots of articles written on why drinking on planes is not such a good idea. Not only does alcohol dehydrate you, booze can also make you feel drunk due to the pressurized cabin and that can get you escorted off the plane at the end of your ride. Not good. I also chose to not have a drink every night. Using the same rationale as on the flight, if they didn’t have a really great wine, why have a glass?

Where have I been?

              Bonjour mes amis! Does that give it away? Sorry I’ve been missing for so long. It has been a whirlwind of a month and I’ve neglected to write here.  Where have I been? My husband’s work takes us here and there, but for now, we have landed in Lyon, France for three months and I am loving our maison loin de la maison! Oui! We have been here a week and already comfortable with negotiating the city, as we have had short visits here many times in the past. I already have my favorite grocery and best of all, a favorite boulangerie, a place for baguettes and pastries, but ooh la la, I am going to have to pace myself when it comes to those pastries! Our own home is being occupied by a dear friend, which leaves us worry free on that front and so there you have it. As for Radical Aging, I have so much on my mind to share with you here over the next few weeks. I have hit some barriers in my running and want to share with you what’s happening, and possibly some insights. I also want to talk about writing and what the process can do for you. And, if all goes well, I hope to share some video. Until then, Keep RAging!...
