Thoughts on making protein / meal replacement shakes at client site (in a shaker bottle)? Sometimes I'd rather drink that than eat some of this food.

I did it for three months at a client site breakfast and lunch, no problem. Was on a strict diet and the client site had a kitchenette near our team room. The funny thing was I got lots of comments from client team members who had done the same diet or knew people who had, all very supportive.

Why would this be an issue? Do what you got to do to stay in shape and be healthy.

Yea take the powder with u. Although TSA pulls me up every time I take a powder box with me. So I started buying small 40g pouches to take along or buy at the client site and finish there. TSA just checks though, never had an issue with them confiscating anything

Eat those oatmega protein bars. They’re filling and they are less messy.

Why is this an issue exactly? Or is carrying the shaker and powder an issue? If so, assuming you stay at the same hotel every week, or at least in hotels in close vicinity of each other, next time you travel just buy a shaker and a manageable size box of the powder at the client city and store the bag at the hotel on Thu.. Or drop it off on your way to the airport at the hotel. Pick up if you need to switch hotels. Hotels will gladly store anything for u.. I've stored everything.. From a check in, to a microwave and even a portable laser printer

A client based in Japan had sent us a list of some Japanese texts and their English translations at our request which we needed. SM: Copy all the Japanese texts and their translations from document that client sent into a new document and send it back to client (to whom it came from) and ask them if they are correct. Me: Why are we doing that? SM: Just to ensure that we have validation in an email that client sent these translations to us. Me: Facepalm 🤦🏻‍♂️

Our office manager is on the hunt for a time tracking and invoicing system to replace our current solution.

For $10 or less per month per user. Are they looking for a unicorn? Is there a fix out there?
