Morning! I awoke before the sun this morning to get started on my day. As much as I like cozy hotels at night, I really love them in the mornings when I get up, workout, shower, get dressed, pack up. It just feels so organized! (And the towels are always fresh, unlike in our house)
This morning I got up and ate some grapes before hitting the hotel gym for a quickie workout. I only had 30 minutes, so I walked on the treadmill (today incline 4.0 at 3.5 mph) while listening to Pregtastic podcasts. I’ve almost listened to them all! Exercise felt so good, even if it was just a little.
Down at the conference breakfast, I looked high and low for protein, healthy fat and whole grains, but didn’t have too much luck. Good selection of fruit though!
But good planning on my part = I brought some Uncle Sam from home (knowing hotels are often missing whole grains).
I piled some on fruit [saving banana for a snack]
And over some yogurt
Although this was not a very efficient means of protein – 3 grams going with 17 grams of sugar. They also had some eggs, but they were mixed with salsa in a tortilla that didn’t sound too appealing to my palate this morning. Another protein option that’s almost always available is the skim milk from the coffee bar – hotels always have coffee! I could have put my cereal in that in a mug. But today the coffee line was long and the milk running out quickly, so I decided not to take a cup’s worth from the thirsty attendees.
Hot tea! Per usual.
Listened to a presentation on positive thinking first thing, and have a full day ahead!
