Weekly Practice – Travel Time

March 2, 2011 at 4:52 pm 2 comments

The past two weeks I have been traveling during the week and did not want to break my weekly routine and practice in both nutrition and exercise. Although travel can be dificult with changes in time zones, late night dinners, this does not give you a free for all to ignore your goals. It can even be more dificult when you are away from your “safe zone” or what I like to call my own kitchen. You may have to be a little more flexible with your eating schedules and this is ok, but remember it is your decision the foods you choose to eat. There are acceptable choices when traveling and, remember you can always schedule one of your cheat meals around your travel schedule as I did this week. This did not exempt me however from my weekly practice. The hotel did have a fitness center with free weights so here’s a quick snapshot of what I did this week.

    Great post, It is always important to stay with the routine while traveling. I found a couple great items for traveling on http://www.luggageone.com they have a bunch of gym bags and luggage that help out a lot during long trips. Something that will help you stay organized are the Cubes by Eagle Creek http://www.luggageone.com/store/Search.aspx?SearchTerms=cubes they helped me when I was studying abroad.
    Keep up the good work!

      Thanks for the tip Charlie! For short trips, I usually keep my workouts to a mix of bodyweight circuit and what is available in the local fitness center or maybe an outodoor park. For longer trips we got a Pelican case to travel with a Kettlebell. We will be using this for the first time in April. Looking forward to having having some of my favorite tools with me! 🙂 Thanks again for the comment.
