I tell you, my purse can become a super scary place at times. After a few months so much stuff piles up in there, that it becomes exercise lugging it around. So at some point I do have to empty it, sort out through all of the junk, and put only the bare necessities back in; of course until the whole process has to be repeated! (Usually this point in time happens when I’m lugging grocery bags, my purse, and something else and realize it’s not happening.) Regardless of how much I take out though, there are certain things that always stay in there, besides the usual staples (phone, house keys, and wallet).
I’ve been on the road for a while now, and it definitely takes a toll. It’s been a bit of an emotional rollercoaster, especially since we’ve spent A LOT of time in the car. Since we’ve been gone for so long, I definitely crave a routine. That’s when I know I need to start implementing something short enough that I can do it before we pack up and hit the road again, but gives me enough time to start the morning off right.
I. Love. Traveling! And what I love even more is the fact that I have to do some of it for my business! For example, two months ago I had to travel to Orlando, FL for a business conference. One of the biggest problems with traveling is how to stay healthy. Here’s what I did throughout my time on the road to keep my healthy lifestyle!
Traveling Healthy can be a complete and utter
disaster challenge! There are so many enticing fast food signs and restaurants offered on the way to your final destination, that it’s almost laughable to try to eat healthy! But what if you’re traveling to Florida, state of sunshine, palm trees and beaches? You most certainly don’t want to get there all bloated, uncomfortable, with the clothes too tight! I find weight gain not as disastrous, as I do find the discomfort of it. I’m not saying you can’t wear a bikini (because heck you’re fabulous just the way you are), but I know I don’t feel like hitting the beach after eating a large order of fries, a large coke and a double hamburger. Fast food makes my brain foggy, my stomach bloat (sorry for the tmi) and my energy significantly decrease. Similarly, I don’t want to go on vacation and return home not feeling as good as when I had left.
