How do I exclude my IP address from Google Analytics once and for all?

I'm traveling at the moment and I use a mac. I won't be staying in one place for too long for the next year and will continually use new internet sources pretty much every day or every other day.
I just started using Google Analytics. I'm confused because, well, for one I guess I don't understand what an IP address is. But I'm guessing that if I'm continually on the move and switching to new wifi every day or every other day...my IP address changes, is that right?
So I just looked up my IP address yesterday when I realized GAnalytics was recording my data and created a filter for it...but when I go under Networks to find the IP address vs. whatismyip.com, I get two different numbers! Can anyone explain this?
Also, I did read that I could make my IP address static, but I tried and it conflicts with the router...basically it just won't let me or I'm doing it wrong.
I don't want to have to look up my IP address (or my two IP addresses??) every time I get connected to a new internet source so that I can block myself from getting recorded into gAnalytics. Does anyone have a solution?
