Good morning and HAPPY FRIDAY!
I rarely get to enjoy Friday for what it is because I usually work on Saturdays but today is the start of a long weekend and I’m saying bring it on!!!!!!
This morning I woke up at 6, ate half a clif bar and worked out in the home weight room.
I just wanted to do some cardio to begin my long day of traveling so I did 25 minutes on the elliptical followed by 3 sets of crunches on the stability ball (20 reps each set) and 3 sets of crunches with legs at 90 (20 reps each set). I was so happy to fit a workout into my day and felt great afterwards!
No matter how busy or stressful traveling gets, I always try to stay active. If I know I am traveling all day long, I really make an effort to wake up early that morning and work out first. And when I travel or am on vacation, I walk as much as I can. I don’t always work out in hotel gyms (actually I NEVER have worked out in a hotel gym before! tisk tisk), but I try to walk everywhere and explore my surroundings. Walking is such a great way to see the sights and its wonderful for you!
For breakfast I had a half cup of oikos with sliced banana and pom. seeds as well as a toasted ezekiel muffin with pb&j:
Since my flight leaves at noon and the airport I am flying out of is tiny tiny tiny with zero food options (I’m serious), I have packed my lunch. I packed a canned salmon sandwich on protein bread (1 can boneless skinless salmon, couple squirts miracle whip) as well as some carrots and an applesauce.
That should get me through until I arrive in atlanta at 2:00. I most always go to TCBY in the atlanta airport…I have to look at my itinerary because I’m not sure if I will have time today!!! Sad!
And yes I am re-reading Redeeming Love for the 517th time. I just love it so much! It’s PERFECT plane reading!! 🙂
And I’m off!!! I need to shower, finish packing and figure out what in the world I am going to wear on the plane. I’m sort of freaking after watching the weather channel this morning because it looks like Chicago is going to have massive amounts of freezing rain and I DO NOT HAVE A RAINCOAT. I don’t know what I’m going to do. Cry? Freeze? Any suggestions?!
