WOW + An Upgrade

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.
 
One of two bathrooms in the place…
 
Not watching football btw, this is just a commercial 
Check out the kitchenette!
 
 
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 25Date 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!
