Trucking Nation Podcast: 15. Tracking Mileage, IFTA, & Meal Prepping
Here's The Rundown
Tracking Your Mileage
There is a lot of different ways to track your mileage and the popular option is to write down, then transfer it into a trip sheet and not worry about it until it is time to report your miles. If you change just one step in that process, you can know the mileage difference from last week to now, the fuel difference, and look at an expense report from the previous month, week or day. Cool, right? All you would have to change is instead of transferring your miles to paper trip sheet or excel file, you can simply enter them into a digital trip sheet in your TruckLogics account - and there's an app so you can do it on the road. Here is a great blog from TruckLogics that a bit more information - TruckLogics Mileage Tracking: Save Time with One-Click Trip Sheets & Reports.

How are doing on your healthy eating goals? It's understandable if you fall off the wagon for a bit, but it's time to get back on it. A great way to help you stick to your healthy goals is to prep your meals before you head out on the road. You want to prep meals for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks. It's really easy and takes the guess work out of your meals. Meal prepping is also the perfect way to keep your portions in check; a single portion is about the size of your palm. Do leave a meal or two open to enjoy whatever you desire so you don't get bored of eating prepared meals.
