I Get to Work Out Here!!

Tuesday, May 06, 2014

Pics are of the fitness center and 11m lap pool at the Sheraton Seattle. Let me just say... OMG!!! Tonight, after driving from Portland, working forever, and finding a spot to grab dinner...I was done. But I laced up my sneakers anyway and headed up the the 35th floor to see if it was as cool as I was hoping. And THEN I proceeded to kick my own butt on the elliptical and squeeze in some bent over rows and a plank. I swear to you I was smiling the whole time! =D

This is only my 2nd work trip of many more to come and I do okay, but it's really a battle to keep myself from going off the deep end. Whether that means working non-stop, or equating traveling with have a vacation from healthy habits. I adore my husband and our doggies and well, as much as I like to see new places, I'm here for WORK and it's just plain hard to be far from the people and places that are familiar. And crappy hotel "fitness centers" don't help. By the way, anybody else sometimes eat something WAY unhealthy because you know there's no way to even really guess at how to track it??? I'm totally guilty of that.... But now, I'm super stoked to be able to keep my working out on track, which ultimately helps me keep my eating in line. I might even whistle on my way to the pool early tomorrow morning! ; )

In seriousness, this is a huge blessing and not the kind of accommodations I can expect to be the norm. And I've been trying to really pay attention to the good in my life and take time to enjoy it. I think sometimes, if all we can do is enjoy a 10min walk in the sunshine, then we ought to just soak in every last calming ray and relish in that moment. I hope each one of you are blessed with a moment like that this week. As for me, I intend to make the most of it!

    Nice place to work out and you can also ask if they have a nutritional menu and if they have it online too. Most places do have that too.
