Happy Things

21 Jul

Good morning!

Today is the day I go to London!  When I planned this trip in February it felt so far away, and now I can’t believe that it’s already here!

My flight isn’t until later this evening, so I’m glad to have time to get some normal food in me and get a workout in.  Aside from my family and friends, the thing I miss most when I’m away is my normal routine and my own food.  Is that weird?  I love trying new meals but even when I was in Italy (!) I was so ready for my own food when I got home (living more than a few days without peanut butter is just too hard).

This gem is going right in my carry on bag.

Recent happy things:

New work out swag!  Kohl’s had a great sale this week and I took full advantage.  Fila might be one of my new favorite fitness brands.

A trip to the zoo with some residents at the senior home where I volunteer.

This face.

Good eats:

Veggie burger with sautéed zucchini, scrambled eggs with turkey, broccoli and spinach, and fruit salad.

Another kickball win!  Still undefeated!

What happy things have happened to you lately?

I’m off – definitely need to get a run in before the traveling begins.  I’m glad I’ll have my FitBit to help me track my steps, but sitting on a plane for so many hours always makes me feel restless and gross.

Question for the Morning:

  • What are your tips for staying active while traveling?

For me, I try to walk around the airport as much as I can instead of sitting at the gate while waiting to board.  On this trip, I’m not sure I’ll get many “formal” workouts in, but I do expect we will be walking a lot.
