I love routine. If you don’t know me I THRIVE knowing what I’m going to do.
When I travel I can be a little “antsy” because all my comforts of home are gone.
Rather than have an epic melt down each time I take time to think about what I can do to have healthy routines.
One thing I do is exercise on the road. It can be a simple walk to start my day to an in room bootcamp.
I also make my 24 hour plan even if I have no clue what’s being served. Trust me. It’s comforting to know that NO MATTER WHAT you can be in routine. You can be creating health EVERYWHERE.
I rarely do it ladies but I’m giving you a workout I love to do when I only have a hotel room and want to kick my own ass. And, how I make a 24 hour plan when I don’t know what the hell food I’ll be eating for DAYS.
Amazingly I survive every trip. I haven’t died or gotten pregnant…yet.

24 HOUR PLAN
B: Coffee (I always bring my coffee mix. Click here to get travel packets.)
L: Eat 2-2. Don’t eat desserts and drop extras like bread baskets, appetizers, fries, and sauces I wouldn’t normally make at home.
D: Repeat dinner.
S: Fruit if you get hungry. If not fruit feast on the calories stored on your ASS.
I bring my sleepy time pills that also keep my pooping. I won’t poop on the road or sleep without them. Click here to see my Sleep Remedy.
I order an Instacart if I will be gone a few days or hit a Walgreens. I buy bottles of water and a couple of Perrier’s so I have no hydration excuses. The Perrier in a wine glass in the room makes me feel luxe and like I’m winding down. If I go out I just get a diet soda or club soda, lime and a splash of cranberry.
That’s it! Those few things keep me in enough routine that I can look forward to going home and drop worries of weight gain.
