I got home around midnight last night after being away from home 17 days - don't get me wrong, spending 11 days in Phoenix for Christmas and NYE with my friends and family was wonderful and then I flew right to Las Vegas for the CES Show but I was counting down the nights until I got to sleep in my own bed. I walked into my condo last night, put the suitcases in the corner and crawled into my bed (yes, never got out of my travel clothes) - I woke up to my sister calling me at 10:59am! I did it! I got over 10 hours of sleep!
Over the last month I had some blood work done, saw my Dr and found out I have to go on cholesterol medication, get more iron and start taking Vitamin D - between this and living in a hotel or on a plane every week I made some new goals for myself. As I sat on the plane last night I made some lists -
- Cutting out dairy for 30 days - I'm originally from Wisconsin and if you know me, I LOVE cheese but I want to see if it helps my stomach and cholesterol #'s
- Giving up a soda for a bit - I lean on Diet Coke and need to start consuming more water so for now I am going to say good-bye to the cola of choice
- Stop treating my work travels as though I'm on vacation - that may sound silly to most people but traveling for work is very different and I need to make some better food and beverage choices
- Find 30 min a day to exercise - be it walking, stretching, yoga in my hotel room.. just find that time for something
I am excited to get back to my way of life - being healthier, happier and making more times for my friends and family! I look forward to sharing my travels, recipes and healthier lifestyle. xo
