WIAW … Travel Edition
|August 22, 2012||Posted by Madeline @ Food, Fitness, and Family under FitFluential, Travel, WIAW|
HELLO from sunny Arizona Emmalyne and I made it safely here late last night. She was seriously a dream to travel with. Some of the other little ones on the plane … not so much. I felt so bad for their parents because I know how hard that can be! Since it’s Wednesday it’s time to link up with the wonderful Jenn from Peas and Crayons for “What I Ate Wednesday”! I love these posts and love reading everyone else’s food choices. It gives me some inspiration for meal planning!
Emmie and I shared some scrambled eggs, fruit, and a whole wheat English muffin with strawberry jam.
I was able to sneak to the gym for a quick sweat session before finishing packing and heading to the airport. I did 4.5 miles on the treadmill following Tina’s intervals for Best Body Bootcamp. I finished in 40:38 for an average of 8:58 per mile! I didn’t walk once. I am seriously so shocked that I am finally breaking into the 8’s
Heather brought over lunch from What’s The Scoop here in Richmond Hill … AKA our favorite place ever. It was seriously JUST what I needed since I was stressing trying to get everything together. We got to hang out for her lunch break and then I got down to business.
These GNC lean protein shakes are my absolute favorite post-workout snack now. They are so easy because I just throw them into my gym bag and they are immediately ready for consumption. If I wait until I get home sometimes Emmie needs me more and I don’t get a snack in. These have solved that problem. I also had an iced grande non-fat chai tea latte at the airport. Mama needed caffeine 😉
DINNER (Not Pictured)
Here’s where things got interesting for me. We got in to Detroit (our connecting flight) LATE. And our next gate was on the other side of the airport. We didn’t have time to stop for food but we did have time to sneak into the Freedom Center for military and their families. They were AWESOME. They heated me up a hot pocket, packed me a snack bag, and the gentlemen helped me get to my gate. They saved my booty. If you’re ever at the Detroit airport they are in terminal A! Healthy dinner? No. But it was better than nothing
