Jet lag & Lack of protein = SUCKY!

So I've made it to Germany... but my tummy is not happy.  Starting from the plane ride until now, my diet has been wacky.  I tried to plan my best by packing protein friendly snacks, but without a fridge to keep things cold, this was tough.

So now... a few days into things, my body is all out of wack and I'm feeling the consequences physically from not eating enough protein and whole foods.

Before I left, I was eating 50-60g of protein a day and now I'm lucky to have gotten that much since I left.  *BIG SIGH*

My stomach is in knots, my body aches, I can't sleep.  I need to make some changes.

So, it's 2:45am, I'm eating a Greek yogurt with honey and berries, trying to give my stomach something it'll recognize and be happy with.

Tomorrow, breakfast will not start with a pastry or crappy restaurant food.  It will start with protein.  Even if I have to eat more yogurt.

Seriously, if I have to eat this greek yogurt everyday until I can get to the a place where I can make or buy whole foods and lean proteins... I will.

My body can't last like this much longer.

Oh, by the way, my scale has been packed which means I won't be able to weight myself until it gets to me in about a month or so.  This will be a true test of my ability to stay on track with this life style.

Wish my tummy luck!
