Sitting is Tiring

Thursday's lunch
I'm coming to you from the BlogHer's 10th anniversary conference. The food thing has gone well. Despite their serving breakfast every morning I've eaten at home because I know my Kashi GoLean and almond milk is an easy way to make a better choice. Lunches have included choices I feel good about, or at least not bad about. Thursday I had a chicken breast, a small slice of roast beef, quinoa, asparagus and cauliflower, salad and fruit salad.

Dinner was on my own. Friday's lunch was sandwiches with salad. I removed half the bread from a roast beef sandwich and had that. Today's lunch was a salad with add your own toppings of chicken breast, beef and tofu. I added a bit of all three. All in all, I was very happy with the conference food options.

Sheesh, I'm so tired I have to cut to the chase, you won't mind will you? The chase is, I finally dragged myself for a workout yesterday. 3 miles in roughly 32 minutes. It was blistering hot outside but I managed to find a creek trail that was a tad cooler. Then I got a day pass to a gym and did back/biceps/core. It was difficult because I was tired and just not in the mood. But I was happy to have gotten it done. After that, I promptly went to bed.

Why is sitting on your ass all day so exhausting? Seriously, I am never so tired as when I've sat in meetings or trainings or whatever all day. And today was Day 3 of that. So I'm not going to the big closing party. Instead, I'm eating a healthy dinner and going to bed early.

All Aboard the Busy Bus!

[PSA: "like" my blog's Facebook page to get tips and updates on my blog posts in your news feed. I'm on Instagram and Twitter too!]

Things are about to get crazy! I have so much going on these next two weeks that I'm actually a little intimidated. First up, I'm attending the BlogHer annual conference this year. This is my first blog conference and I'm super excited!

So, that's my first bit of craziness. I'll be back home for a couple days and then I'm off again for my annual women's backpacking trek. I am SUPER excited about this. A few days in the wilderness with my laid back lady friends is almost the same as a week vacation on the beach. It's that good. 

Oh, I'm also doing a happy dance that I'll be seeing Roni Noone again. She's coming to the conference, speaking on a panel during the healthy living mini-con.

Ok, so my last post was a bit of a downer. But I'm up again. I swear, I don't actually have wild mood swings like it might appear in my posts's just the healthy living thing is so up and down for me these days. But I'm back in the sun, eating in a way that feels good. I had a KILLER workout yesterday (that's what happens when you take 5 days in a row off). I ran for 25 minutes and then did chest/triceps/core work. I hustled through and did my whole workout in 57 minutes. Bam!

And food is also on point.  A handful of goldfish crackers yesterday but otherwise, all good stuff. And my weight is hovering in the 145 point something range, which is just fine for now. I'm not sure yet how I'm going to get all my workouts in with this conference but rest assured, I'll try my best. Ok, I gotta run, off to the next thing.
