Early this morning I took off for a work conference that will last through the weekend. I’m not cleared by my doctor to fly… so I’ll be traveling six hours via Greyhound. Based on what I’ve heard, I’m not expecting it to be a great experience, but who knows? I’ll be sure to report back. Luckily, by the time I’ll be returning home I will have cleared the one month mark and can fly!
Packing is always my least favorite thing to do. I hate packing. I hate unpacking. I’m a list person though, so that does help to make this slightly less painful. What makes the list?
- My Vera Bradley suitcase. Love this suitcase! I received it as a high school graduation gift. It’s the maximum carry-on size, so I can fit more than the average person. It’s also super easy to spot and I’ve never seen anyone else with one like it!
- Spare contacts. I can’t even imagine how awful life would be if I had a contact tear or something while I was away. It is seriously my number one priority and I never go anywhere without spares. I think something happened one time and I only had one contact for awhile so now I’m scared.
- Tylenol. I would never pay $5 for two pills in a hotel gift shop, so I need to be prepared - Snacks. I don’t go anywhere without some good snacks. You’ll have to come back tomorrow for that post!
- Running shoes. Part of my no-excuses workout philosophy includes working out while traveling or on vacation. Running shoes and workout clothes are required!
I honestly have no idea what to expect as far as workouts. The hotel I’m going to has a gym, but it’s not really open during the hours that I’ll be able to work out (5 AM!). They also have a map with some recommended running courses, but I don’t know if that’s something I’ll want to try- I’ll most likely decide when I get there. I’m planning on looking for some body weight workouts that I could do in my room. Julie always has some great workouts, so I went on her blog for inspiration. I’m looking at these options:
Wish me luck!
What are some other good on-the-go workouts?
