I do a fair amount of international travel myself and I know the feeling. I always take my running shoes with me and some bands. At the very least, I head outside in the evening if I get to the hotel before 10 PM. If not, a 15 power minute walk in the AM is much better then nothing! When I can manage, I use the bands for strength training before bed.

Good luck!

Just keep MOVING!!! Linda in Cleveland, OH

I just discovered "personal training" on my smartphone! There are free apps but the one I use is from Skimble. In any case, I thought I would try it out last week when I was traveling for work...and did one labled "moderate" for 20 minutes. I could do it in my room without a ton of room...and picked one that didn't require weights. All I can say is: HOLY COW! Did I sweat like crazy! Even more then when I use the elliptical at the those 20 minutes, I felt like I got a better workout then I do after 60 minutes on my own at the gym. I'm a total convert...and the nice thing is: they have so many different ones I can choose a different one daily to mix it up....

Just a thought--it's really helped me not to make excuses why I can't work out on the road.

Speaking of travelling. My mom and I are going to visit her sister and in Ohio next month for two weeks. I have never stayed there before only passing through to New Jersey. So I m totally excited. I will still stay on my diet and exercise programs but problaly not be posting since I will be visiting.

Couple of great things here:

1) The simple pains of traveling and maintaining some semblance of routine is well known to you.

2) You have a plan to start addressing some of those and it starts with your morning walk.

Good luck while traveling. I hate it myself but and have been fortunate enough to not get stuck in a place that doesn't have a trail/park/gym nearby if the facility doesn't have anything...and yes that is possible!

I am often away for work. I always stay at a hotel with at least a treadmill. Get some time in before breakfast. Makes the rest of the day better.

Doing the challenge while traveling is a bitch ... and so is sticking with any program ... anyway, playing with the granddaughter is a good way to log my 10 minutes. She loves her soccer ball -- trying on clothes in a country full of pixies is another motivator.

Home in a few days ... new home that is, and new challenges.

Goal is to walk before work because I am an early riser ... coffee and email will have to wait!
