I can’t tell you how happy I am to be getting back to my normal routine this week. And, I’ve got a LOT of Workout Updates for you this week, but before I do…. let me tell you about something fun.
I checked into the Townplace Suites last night in Pocatello, Idaho for a quick overnight stay. Because I stay at Marriott a LOT, I tend to get upgraded into fancier rooms than I reserve. Well, tonight was definitely that way.
How about they put me in the HONEYMOON SUITE? So funny… and frankly, it has a nicer kitchen than I do! If you’re ever interested in honeymooning in Pocatello, Idaho… here’s a sneak peek at your future accomodations… I joke, but it’s REALLY a nice room.

Onto Work Out Wednesday (WOW)
When I initially got started at the Y, I told myself that I’d like to go to the gym at least 3 times a week… and then, that grew quickly into wanting to go to the gym more days than I didn’t. That’s my goal these days – Workout 4 days a week.
Sadly, I did not hit my goal this week. Here’s the breakdown:
Wednesday, January 25 – Date night. Excused. 🙂
Thursday, January 26 – Flight Delay… so, I didn’t get home until 8pm!
Friday, January 27 – Sushi with a friend took priority over working out this night.
Saturday, January 28 – Full workout at the Y – I did 40 minutes on the elliptical, and completed a full circuit of weights: Core, Arms, Thighs… that’s my circuit. I need to learn how to use other machines too, but I’ll take these for now.
Sunday, January 29 – Hmmm…. I put on workout CLOTHES this day. Does that count? I ended up crawling back in bed for a long nap followed by a pedicure. Workout fail.
Monday, January 30 – Great workout at the Y. My workout matched what I did on Saturday. 40 minutes of fabulous cardio, followed by strength training.
Tuesday, January 31 – I worked out in the hotel’s fitness room. Even after a REALLY long day of travel, I made it happen. I seriously feel better when I work out, and 20 minutes on the elliptical + 20 minutes on the treadmill was enough for me tonight. In other news, I am constantly reminded that all ellipticals are not created equal. This one was PAINFUL (in a good way.)
Year-to-Date Workout Stats
Uh-oh… I’m barely working out more than I am not working out YTD. Time to kick it up a notch in the next few weeks! Stay tuned, folks… Will make you proud!
