We're back home after a long weekend away visiting family and eating lots of food. I actually made a very valiant effort to stay in control of my eating and exercise while we were out on the road. It's definitely a lot harder than when you're at home following a schedule and regiment. For a couple of the days we stayed in a hotel, so I made good use of the exercise room each morning spending an hour or more on the stationary bike or elliptical. We also spent a fair amount of time swimming and I tried to stay as mobile as possible, to counteract all the sitting while driving we were also doing. I even worked up a sweat shooting hoops with my husband at his childhood home.
Today it's back to reality and back to some sort of schedule. I did a mixed workout this morning, starting out with an hour on the elliptical. Then I did a "circuit" workout alternating 5 minutes on the elliptical with 5 minutes of step-ups with weights, sit-ups, punches, lunges, etc. After that I did 30 minutes of walking on the treadmill, and I imagine I will get in more walking later today as I try to catch up on some of the shows I've missed the past week or two.
