I'm on a business trip in West TN for the rest of the week and I have the best of intentions to stick to all of my goals for the week. Now, whether or not that happens is entirely up to my motivation! It's a 5 hour drive from home to where I am and a day after doing legs, sitting for 5 hours isn't exactly what I had envisioned, but that's what had to happen. Once we got here we had about two hours before we needed to be at our meeting, so we lunched (at Chick-fil-a) and rested a bit at our hotel.
We headed over to our meeting and had a great four-hour conversation about wonderful work things! The problem with this great four-hour meeting was that we were never once offered a sip of water. In my fitbook I established a goal to drink two of my water bottles per day. Thanks to our hosts oversight in offering us sustenance, I failed to meet my goal of drinking my water. Today I was also supposed to do 20 minutes of cardio before I left K-town. But, because I didn't go to sleep until after 11p.m. and I had to leave the house at 7:30 a.m., it didn't happen. But, what did happen was this: after my delicious dinner of mussels and angel hair pasta, two glasses of wonderful red wine, and a bit of cheesecake (is all of that bad?) I did 30 minutes on the treadmill at the hotel. I did the extra ten minutes because of the cheesecake.
Tomorrow I'm supposed to do upper body and 20-minutes of cardio again. The challenge? We have an hour and a half drive in the morning and then I have 5-6 hours of training ahead of me. Hopefully I'll get it done!
Thought for the day? How do you keep to your workout schedule when you are on the road?
