|My hubby, Joe, and I in Chicago|
Okay, so more about the trip! I had a plan for staying on track while on vacation and I did really well!
I packed some apples, a trail mix that had almonds, cashews, walnuts, pumpkin seeds and some chocolate pieces, and a few organic protein bars. It was helpful to have these on hand in between meals and during our travels. When we got there on Friday we had an awesome breakfast at the hotel restaurant, then we did some shopping, I'll just say I did some damage at Lululemon!
|Breakfast- ham, spinach & goat cheese omelet, whole grain toast, and fruit|
I planned a circuit workout with timed intervals which I blew through in 45 minutes, after I did 3 sets of arms and shoulders then 3 sets of quads and hamstrings. The whole workout took me an hour and I burned about 600 calories, not too shabby for a vacation workout! They had an awesome gym, which helped make it easy to get my workout in.

Saturday afternoon we went to the Shed aquarium which was cool, but would have been more fun with Ariana. We did some more sightseeing and went up the Sears tower to check out the city from above. Then we went and got ready for dinner and the Second City sketch and improv show "A Clown Car Named Desire", which was awesome! If you are in Chicago you have to check it out.
Sunday afternoon I had a massage at the Bliss spa and it was wonderful! Then we packed up and drove home. We truly had a wonderful time, it was nice to have some alone time and get out to visit a new city! I am happy with how I ate, I allowed myself to enjoy some good food, but I did get my workout in and walked a lot.
Now, it's back to reality and back to my workout schedule! I have some fun things planned this week. Stay tuned.
How do you stay on track when you go on vacation? Do you workout?
