I am not going to lie last week was tough! We were at a week long project and I did not get anything done that I had intentions of doing. An employee was sick, so I had to take over their load of work which meant I spent more time on my butt than I had planned. By the time the end of the day rolled around, the last thing I wanted to do was put on the workout clothes I brought along and workout. Instead I wanted dinner, so I could go back to the hotel and …… work some more. I gained a pound, and I know exactly why. Here it is my Fit at Fifty Week Ten round-up!
I have to say, I am LOVING having a spin bike at home, and it may be one of the best purchases I have ever made. I call it the no excuse workout, and have been pretty good about doing it at least thirty minutes everyday. I did get up to 90 minutes yesterday and it felt GREAT! The biking sessions I have found online are a blast.
I am traveling again this week with includes a long overseas flight. My goals are to walk as much as I can on the plane as well I am not bringing my workout clothes to London, instead, I plan on getting up early, grabbing my camera and walking before work. Lots of walking, plus I am sure lots of eating as we are already talking about hitting some of our favorite places to nosh. Wish me luck. I am hoping I am not back at where I started ten weeks ago.
This is HARD!
