Kicking it up a notch

I recently got back from my 1 week road trip with my husband. We stayed at 6 different hotels and I managed to exercise 5 out of 6 days during our trip. I made sure every hotel we stayed at had some sort of exercise room. The one in Mackinac Island didn't but we hiked 3.5 miles and biked around the 8.5 mile island...I'd say we got some exercise that day. The one day I skipped was the day after our friends wedding because ... well the night before was a little rough :-) I ate better than most people do during vacations, at least better than my husband did (but I usually do anyway so that's not saying much :-). I got home and still gained 2 pounds, not bad but still disappointing.

I'm going to kick it up a notch (like Emeril would say) and increase my cardio workouts. I'm now running 5 days a week (was doing 2-3 days per week) in addition to my 30 minute daily walking and my strength training. It has been working out really great with this awesome weather we haven't seen in a loooong time. I feel refreshed and strong...that's what its all about :-D

Sounds like you had a nice active vacation! I can see how that would counteract some of the normal stress a road trip puts on your body.
