| Tabata Tuesday and Travel Talk
|It's Tuesday, right? Let's get caught up, shall we? So, in the last two weeks, I've traveled to Utah for Blend, had multiple work meetings, kids are now out of school, traveled to Birmingham and now I'm working my tail off on a couple of projects along with getting Tony ready for more conventions. Woohoo summer break...definitely read sarcasm here.
Life is moving too fast! The kids are gone for 3 weeks to visit their grandparents and cousins. They have been gone for 5 days and I already miss them like crazy! I love the age they are right now. They are our little buddies! Oh well, they are having a great time so that's all that's important right now. It is their summer break, so I'm glad they are enjoying some good vacation time.
So, we started our trip with me discovering I have an alter ego for conventions...
Seriously, how do you type my name right directly underneath the wrong one? I kind of like it...I may just start going by Saizena. ;)
Let's talk about traveling and healthy living. Something I don't talk about much here and I don't know why is workouts. This past weekend got me to thinking about quick workouts. Tony and I had every intention to run at the hotel this past weekend. We brought our running clothes, peaked into the gym, had a plan and then...exhaustion hit with the late nights, early mornings and time change. So, with that plan out the door and my need to move before having to sit so much in a convention hall, I came up with a quick tabata workout to get me going. Tabata is incredible for getting your heart rate going and I love that I can do this with no equipment, well, other than my phone. I have an app on my phone that has a circuit timer. So, I just plug in my 20 seconds on and 10 seconds off for 8 rounds then I'm good to go! 30 minutes, in my hotel room and I was done with a full body workout!
Traveling Tabata Workout!
5 minute warm up of alternating standing knee lifts and arm circles
2 rounds with 1 minute rest in between
Alternating Front Lunge
Alternating Rear Lunges
Full Sit Ups (chest to knees)
Stretch! Seriously, this felt so good and I felt so ready for my day...of sitting.
Now, traveling fuel. Yeah, this could be a post all on it's own, but I figured I would share some highlights of my favorites this past weekend.
I will NEVER get tired of apples. Crisp, sweet, refreshing...yeah, they are my favorite travel snack!
No lie, our best find for breakfast for this weekend was the Starbucks inside of the Target which was about 2 miles from our hotel. We were on a hunt for COFFEE and fuel. Jackpot!
I had a packet of vanilla Plant Fusion from Blend (this is one of my favorites) so it gave me the perfect bowl of oatmeal that I needed to fuel me for the start of my day! The protein powder and oatmeal combination makes everything creamy and delicious. It's like an oatmeal pudding! Yum!
Finding a Jason's Deli was also another jackpot find! Give me all the salad and a few eggs for protein...I'm good to go!
Also, I found these little babies on clearance at Target...um, they are like crack! I'm not really a super sweets eater or a chip person, but these mildly sweet treats totally hit the spot!
I normally travel really well for conventions when it comes to food. This trip was a little off for me when it came to packing fuel. I think I was just not ready to travel again, so my brain wasn't really functioning for it. I will be ready for the next one though. Tony and I are already planning things out. It is NEVER a good idea for me not to travel with good fuel. I have to eat all the time and I need it to be something that will make me feel energized.
Traveling fuel and workouts...do you plan for them or do you just go with the flow? Do you have a favorite quick workout? Please share!!! Do you have a go to travel food plan? Please share that too!!!

I always have a plan... you do NOT want me to be caught without food. :) working out is my "me" time, so I make sure I get that too. I'm a better person to be around if I get that in. Haha.
Alternating lunges are awesome in tabata workouts! I almost always bring my own oatmeal and just "cook" it with hot water from the room's coffee pot and try to snag a banana from the hotel. Oh and I bring my own PB and protein powder to add in ;-) You've been a busy bee lately. Hope you can find some time to sit back and put your feet up!

I'm so bad about working out on vacations. Like you, I always MEAN to do some running or workouts in the hotel gym, but somehow...they never happen. Luckily, we're BIG walkers on most of our vacations-- I've worn my garmin before, and we've walked upwards of ten miles, just exploring! So that seems to counterbalance the lack of formal workouts. :-)
we used to be so much better at being prepared for our travels with food. lately we have been a little busy that we seem to run out of time.
we try to workout on vacations when we can, but we also try not to stress over it either. try to find a little balance with it all :)
