Please forgive my absence, I was traveling for work.
I spent the last four days in beautiful weather, lounging by the pool, walking on the beach, eating dinners at fancy restaurants, and talking to nice people. But you know what? I was so excited to come home to Mike and Clyde. Even if I don't live next to a beach, have turn down service in my bedroom, or a cabana with a flat screen TV and a butler. Now that's love.
Exercising when you're away from home can be a challenge, especially when a lot of your time is scheduled for you. For me it's about getting a workout in wherever I am, even if it's not as long or as intense as it might be if I was at home. One day that was a 50-minute walk on the beach followed up with 10 minutes of planks, sit ups, and push ups in my hotel room before taking a shower and getting ready for dinner. Another day that was a 3.75 mile run on the treadmill before scrambling to get out the door and onto a bus.
It might not be an ideal workout, but it's something... which is more than I did today! After eating about a pound of Whirled Peace frozen yogurt I'm now watching The Biggest Loser and listening to Clyde snore while Mike plays Draw Me. Yup, it's true. There's no place like home.
