42 days until the unofficial First Day of Summer (Memorial Day to those of us in the U.S.)! Time to shed the cold weather clothes and get back into shorts, sleeveless tops and bathing suits!
Do those words cause panic in you? You haven’t even gotten serious about implementing New Year’s resolutions yet! Yes, this time of year can bring dread to those of us who struggle with extra weight that we carry around like oversized luggage permanently stuck to us. I know because I’m a full-fledged member of this group. Though I’m committed to give up this membership!
Since travel is such a focus of my life and getting healthy and fit are as well, I’m going to share my real-life opportunities and challenges of weight loss on the road. If I can get more fit with this busy travel schedule, surely most anyone can!
Here’s my schedule for the next 42 days leading up to Memorial Day Weekend:
16-29 April Traveling to Hong Kong,, 2 days in Hong Kong, departing Friday for a Princess 7-day cruise to China and Japan; 2 days in Tokyo; fly home
30 April Home
01-08 May Travel to Norway; client work
09-12 May Travel to Colorado Springs for BoardingArea conference
12-17 May Travel back to Norway; more client work; travel home
18-20 May Home
21-23 May Houston
24-27 May Home for the Memorial Day Weekend!
With 34 of the 42 days being on the road (most of it international), it’s enough to make me groan when I consider my fitness goals! Of these 34 days of travel, I have 6 international flights of two or three legs and 2 domestic flights. All 34 nights will be spent in a hotel or on a cruise ship. Weight loss? Can I do this with a cruise and so many international flights?
I am sure going to give it my best! And I’m going to share with you how it’s going.
