1.) As Ryan and I discovered yesterday, you can still be healthy while traveling by air! Here are some genius ideas of ours:
- Bring an empty water bottle with you through the TSA line. Fill it up in the terminal. No more paying $2-4 for sweet sweet hydration! Your skin will thank you for it when you’re up in the air.
- If you’re getting airport food because you didn’t pack airport snacks beforehand, walk to another terminal to get it, then back to yours. Even if you don’t have time to eat it at your gate and have to wait until you’re airborne to chow down, you will have burned off at least some of those calories you’re about to consume. (*note = cinnabons are the exception. I’m pretty sure you can never burn off a cinnabon).
- If you can’t split it, don’t eat it. In other words, don’t eat a combo meal by yourself – if there’s nobody there to split it with you, pass on the sandwich and fries and get some snacks instead, like yogurt or nuts. It’s cheaper, and you’ll walk away without feeling like you just ate a pile of bricks.
2.) Just got back from a very active weekend in Scottsdale, where the company my husband works for had their annual conference. For just three and a half days, I feel like we got a lot of fitness in: two yoga classes, a long walk through the town, a 4.5 mile hike in the desert, a 2-hour bike ride, and a very sunny game of tennis.
3.) Over the weekend, I got not just one, but TWO gifts from some very thoughtful and supportive friends, Callie, Jo, and John. They’re both yoga shirts – one is pictured and one is not, since I loved it so much I sweated too much in it this evening.
Thanks for enabling my yoga addiction, you beautiful people, you.
ALSO, my Yoga for Runners clinic is this Thursday at the Country Music Marathon Expo! If you’re signed up for the race, plan to come a little before 3 so we can get to know each other!
