Midweek Report (on the road)

Wednesday, November 14, 2012

So far so good on my business trip this week. At midweek, but still following my plan:

- Up at 5:00AM each day, in the workout room by 6:00AM. Had to deviate from my normal workout routine a little yesterday, as both treadmills were busy, so opted for the Precor EFX Elliptical. Did get in strength training Monday and Wednesday (today).

- Making sure to get up and stretch / walk during my meetings

- Tracking calories. Within goal each day so far, with the only issue being not enough fiber.

Friday is going to be a little more challenging. I have a 7AM meeting which I'll need to at my company site for. Thankfully, the hotel is only 5 minutes away, so one of the managers at the hotel is going to bring me over, but will need to be up even earlier (4AM) so I can get my workout in, get packed, get a quick, healthy breakfast, and be on-site in time for the meeting.

My hunch is that this will be the first of several business trips over the next 12 months, so this has been a good week to establish routines. The scale will tell the take next week as to just how successful I have been, but at least I feel like I've stayed on course.

    Keep up the good work. Have you thought about packing some resistance bands? They'd take up next to no room in your luggage and are a great substitute in hotels that are lacking strengthening equipment!!
