“I’d like to go somewhere! Take me to New York, I’d love to see L.A.”
I’m off again – one day in Chicago (today!) for meetings. Then off to NY the following Tues-Friday then (possibly) off to LA. Waiting on confirmation for that….eeep!
Then I have a few normal weeks and it’s back on the road – Atlanta, Orlando, Minneapolis…Oy. LOL.
So I need to buckle down. Stick to my number – get as many steps in as humanly possible and find time for workouts. In NY I will opt for a DVD but in LA I think I’ll try a Cardio Barre class.
I have 2 barre DVDs I can pack – neither are as good as an in-person DVD (but truly no DVD is!):
Anyone else have other DVDs they can recommend? Obviously you’ve got limited space in a hotel so nothing that requires running or walking lunges. LOL.
I might try to improvise a barre n9ne workout – but honestly I never push myself as hard as I do in class. I always wimp out! There is really something to be said for the power of in person motivation!
This time around I feel pretty good going into a trip. I’m in a good place emotionally and mentally ~ I don’t have fear that I’ll “forget” to eat my number or go crazy and eat junk I shouldn’t. I feel in control.
I’m not worried about steps – especially in NYC. This morning alone I took a wrong turn in the airport and I’m already at 3222! LOL.
My only complaint is the travel will disrupt my barre n9ne challenge schedule – which I meticulously planned! Then again, the best laid plans of mice and men…. 😉
After these I think I’m due for some down time at work. I daydream about sitting around doing absolutely nothing then driving to the beach to enjoy a sunset. My next true vacation isn’t until October (Mom turns 60 and i decided we need to celebrate in Los Angeles. She’s never been to the west coast!).
I guess this is the whole “living”part of the challenge. Not everyday will be perfect and planned out, how will I adjust to that? We’ll see! Wish me luck.
