I found a gym to use while away from home. It's not as nice as the Y where I normally work out but it works.

We drove seven hours yesterday to visit family for the holidays. I did ten minutes of exercise before leaving for the trip. During the trip I did isometric exercises in the car off and on. Did some jogging while fueling up. Ate a healthy lunch that we had packed ahead of time. Did ten more minutes of exercise upon arriving. It was fun to see that a day "of sitting" could be made more active. Best of all I felt great - not stiff and sore from sitting all day like usual. I will be looking for a gym away from home to keep up the exercise while on vacation.

Congrats. Next week is when I enter into my half marathon training period. My husband is also entereing into a training cycle for a body building show. So, no problems this Christmas (Thanksgiving was only so-so) as we are both entering into big activity periods in our lives. We even bought smaller portions for our holiday meal on Tuesday because we don't need "all that stuff" in the house weeks after the holidays.

Concerning being on the road, it is challenging but what I've committed too (and can't believe it took me so long to find) was using facilities and hotels that have at least a kitchenette in it. I've gotten used to asking about the ingredients they use in their morning breakfast meals (boy was I shocked and disappointed). I'm a cardio girl at heart and will go for walks and runs and if there is a gym available then I'll go to that but I've never been one for work out videos. That may need to change as I read and hear about people's successes.

Thanks for the mention!

Next week we'll be traveling for the holidays. I want to keep exercising even while on the road. I'll start the day with a ten minute Spark People exercise video. I can walk in a park near our family home. There might be a gym in the town we're headed to. In the past I have dropped all healthy exercise and eating habits over the holidays. I want this year to be different.
