Get your workout in, then go for a nice walk. This new exercise plan may actually prove beneficial, along with the complete license to veg out and recover for the rest of the time.
Do your best with the food situation. I've found that I can almost always make decent choices no matter what is presented. There's always something that is safe to eat and since primal I'm usually a lot better able to resist things I couldn't resist before. You may find it's the same way with you now.
