After the meetings were over, I made my way back to the hotel to workout. I don't know what it was this morning but I couldn't, for the life of me, wake up to workout. I think I may have been experiencing a case of jetlag. My business trip is on the other side of the country in the Mountain Time Zone, which is 2 hours behind the Eastern Time Zone back home. Anyway, I made some adjustments and ended up working out in the late afternoon at the hotel.
When I am home, it is easier to go to the gym and have everything there that I need to conduct my normal workout routine. However, when I am traveling, it is not as easy to do so. When I am on the road, I am subject to what is available to me at the hotel and every hotel is different when it comes to fitness equipment. The gym at the current hotel that I am staying at only has a few cardio machines and 4 small weight lifting stations. There wasn't enough equipment for me to do my full workout routine. In the past, I would have given up right there and would have said to myself, "I will workout when I get home." Not this time!! I made my adjustments and ran on the elliptical a little more then I would usually run on a weight lifting day and I used the equipment they had, to create a make shift upper body workout. It wasn't what I originally wanted to do but it was something positive. I adjusted to my surroundings and made it work.
With that being said, let's get to the details of the day:
Meals of the Day (The Heavy Man = 40 Points)
(I am currently following the Weight Watchers Points System)
Breakfast - 2 Nutrigrain Bars = Points 4
Lunch - Foot long Chicken Teriyaki sub on whole wheat bread with 2 slices of cheese, a bag of baked chips, and a side of apple slices (Subway) = Points 19
Dinner - French Onion Soup, Steak and Mushrooms, with a side of broccoli and potatoes (Applebees) = Points 14
Snack - Lunchables Snack Pack = Points 8
Total Points Eaten Today = 45 Points (I went 5 points over my limit)
I ran for 30 mins on the elliptical machine. Then I conducted a make shift upper body workout with the equipment that was available in the hotel fitness center: Chest Press (3 sets x 15 reps), Lat Pull Down (3 Sets x 15 reps), Cable Row (3 Sets x 15 reps), Triceps Pull Downs (3 sets x 15reps), and Biceps Cable Curls (3 sets x 15 reps).
Day #38 - Weigh-In = 276.2 lbs (I packed my scale and brought it on the road with me and weighed myself first thing this morning)
