Sorry for the sparse posts this week. I'm traveling for work; which bring me to the topic of this post. How do you stay healthy while traveling? When you can't prepare meals for yourself and you're out of the routine you've created.
I was delighted to see that the hotel where I'm staying has a gym, so I've made a committment to go to the hotel gym at least once during this trip. And in terms of food.... hmmm I find that my sweet tooth is pretty loud and in charge when I travel. I think it's connected to comfort. When I'm away from home splurges somehow seem less damaging and also have a way of comforting and soothing. But those calories count too.
I travel for work quite a bit. As I enter my third year of traveling around the country I'm trying to find ways to make my own "routines while en route" so that I can still have some comforts of home. Yes, it took me almost 2 years to realize that's what I needed.
Here are a few ideas I'm digging right now:
-I just found this amazing website called exercisetv.tv. Search "Megan yoga" and it will pull up videos with this awesome instructor and they are FREE! Hooray. So that's a fun thing I can do right in my hotel room.
-Walking around the city and checking out some new sites.
-If I have time search out a local yoga studio or dance studio and try a class in a new city. (so far I've only done this once. I took a yoga class in New York and even though I was so nervous, it was really quite fun!)
I'm still brainstorming about the food list. I'll keep you posted, and as always, ideas are welcome!
