Oh hey! Coming at ya from Overland Park, KS!
I am on the road until Friday night.
Dude. My travel load this semester. Whew.
Sometimes traveling + eating healthy and fitness don’t play nicely together. BUT – they can! You just have to plan for it.
This morning, I got up and hit the hotel gym. Of course, it was tiny and everyone and their dog was in it. Kudos to us! My plan was to get in a leg workout, however, the weight system available didn’t leave much for options. No worries. I improvised.
Using all Dumbbells:
40 lb squats – 3 sets of 12
40 lb sumo squats – 3 sets of 12
25 lb Chest Press – 3 sets of 12
20 lb. Flys – 3 sets of 12
25 lb. Bicep Curls – 3 sets of 12
25 lb. Overhead Tricep – 3 sets of 12
30 second rocking plank
12 low plank oblique knees (each side)
12 spider lunge pushups.
Repeat set 3 times
After the hotel gym I came back to my room, grabbed my ice bucket and did walking lunges down the hallway, because, why not? I needed ice for my breakfast shake, the hallway was empty, and I needed another leg workout.
Yes, I carry that mini blender everywhere with me. Work, home, gym, hotel… my little buddy is with me. Can’t go wrong with a little PB2 and Chocolate ShakeO. Hello vitamin, nutrient, mineral, superfood goodness. You are my love.
Lunch: Southwest Grilled Chicken Salad and a roll. Andes Mint for dessert. No choice on lunch since it was catered, but I was pleased with the meal. At least it wasn’t pizza!
Snack: Clif Bar
Dinner: Grilled Shrimp, Vegetable Skewer (mushrooms, peppers, onion, corn, squash and carrots), side salad with a wee bit of ranch and 2 Vodka waters with lime.
I’d say I managed to have a very healthy day, minus the vodka. But – I at least drank it with water. 😉 And after sitting all day listening to people talk – it’s a miracle I am not still out drinking with the rest of the crew.
Cheers to another day of sit-and-get tomorrow.
Hotel gym- I’ll see your gorgeous face at 5:30am.
Girl! I’m in KC for work too…maybe it’s time for our happy hour …finally! =)
I have to say I’m very impressed with your willpower…I would’ve stayed out for drinks!
We are going to kyoto sushi and streak at 630 if interested!
