Day 56: Business Dinner- Part 1

Submitted by BaylorBlondie on Wed, 06/21/2006 - 12:47pm.

Last night was a client cocktail/dinner in Portland.  While everything went perfectly, I was quite stuffed at the end of the meal.  Two nights of wine and dine (emphasis on the dine) with clients might be more than my stomach can literally take.  While I absolutely love my job and travling, this takes a toll on my diet.  Given that I’m sitting with clients at the table, I feel compelled to finish almost everything on my plate.  If I don’t, I feel that I’m sending the message that the food was not delicious or I am not having a good time.  Either way, this isn’t the message I want to send. 

We are driving to Seattle today which means three hours in a car.  No exercising away last night’s feast today.  Tonight  is a similar event in Seattle: customer cocktail party followed by a huge customer dinner at a very nice steakhouse.  I hate that I’m eating so much that I can’t enjoy this delicious food.
