My life currently involves a lot of travel. How do I maintain healthy habits (eating and exercise)?

I've been gaining weight and I know why: I can't stick to a workout regime - or implement a healthy diet. My life is currently set up in such a way that I often feel overwhelmed.
My job takes me away to conferences and my partner lives in another city.
When on conference: often hard to find time to hit the gym. Have to eat in restaurants where it's easy to indulge "just this one last time".
When at partner's: he doesn't cook and doesn't keep food on hand. He also lives near to many great restaurants. I've asked him to go grocery shopping before I arrive, but he doesn't always have time. There is a gym in his building, but we often struggle to make time for it.
When at home: I spend 4-5 days a week at home /week. I get home, am too tired to go grocery shopping so end up eating frozen food. I then go into intense work mode to catch up on all the back log. Try to find time to go to the gym, but often end up "indulging" and not going.
Basically, I need a swift kick in the A. But I am feeling overwhelmed by it all and am struggling to make exercise a priority. Any fellow frequent-flyers who could share their fitness strategies? How do you stay motivated?
