Philly this week. NYC next week and the week after that. Kansas City, Naples FL, Las Vegas, San Francisco, Europe (twice), still deciding on an invitation for China. All this before the end of April. Can I keep my healthy travel habits? Will I die trying?
Blogging in the hotel bed now and dealing with achy legs from my treadmill run at 8:3op after I checked in. A day sitting on the phone and then stuck on the plane left me idgy and ready to move. Eating was not quite on target with my choices but it did stick to my calorie goal. Running out the door and online ordering a Starbucks latte and ham and cheese croissant put me at 500 calories of caffeine and fat. I made up a bit at lunch with a cup of turkey and sweet potato soup and a few pretzels with hummus. Dinner was a mini turkey wrap and apple from the airport concession. But I couldn’t pass on the Terra blue chips on the flight and my beer and skinny popcorn as my workout reward. Clocked in at 1400 calories with little of the veg variety to show for it.
Tomorrow is a new day and open for a new strategy. I didn’t quite have one going into today except to make sure I hit the gym and stayed in my calorie goal. Maybe I stick to fruit and yogurt for breakfast to save room for the mystery lunch at my client. They asked and took my request for healthy so I’m hoping for a chicken salad. That gives me a little wiggle room for the airport dinner. I need a rest day from exercise as my legs are a bit more sore and tired than I’d like, but think that means I’ll hit the gym in the morning for time on the elliptical rather than high impact treadmill running.
Where will my inspiration come from? Just got an alert about a Beach and Back run. Maybe its time to pick the first 5k of 2018.
