Greetings, friends! I’m writing from my hotel room, which is wonderful. Yesterday was looooong. Like, I didn’t stop for 18 hours long. By the time I finally finished with my panel and got checked into my hotel room, I didn’t think I’d ever seen anything as glorious as this:
They didn’t give me a king bed and I didn’t even care. I called Riley to let him know I was safe and sound, then jumped in that bed right away!
This morning I woke up at 6:00 and hit the hotel gym. They have a pretty nice set-up with all the basics and a few weight machines as well. I completed a 20 minute run on the treadmill to get warmed up, then grabbed some dumbbells to work on my arms. I did a slight variation of my Sexy Arms & Abs workout.
Turns out, it’s been a while since I worked my arms and I could definitely tell! It was pretty sad, actually, so now I’m making it my mission to have one “arm day” a week.
After my workout, I headed upstairs to the breakfast room. I instantly realized that this hotel is way too fancy to show up to breakfast in gym clothes. I felt super awkward, so I ran back to my room and hopped in the shower so I could be presentable. I know it’s silly to worry about strangers and waiters judging me for being sweaty, but it just felt way too formal in there to roll up in my tank top and sneakers.
Once I finally made it back to breakfast, I got a little overwhelmed. This happens to me all the time at breakfast buffets and I’m not really sure why. Maybe it’s because breakfast is my favorite meal of the day, so I want to try all of it. There’s also the worry of picking one option, but wishing you’d had something else! I don’t know. I was over-thinking this for sure. I ended up with a pitiful collection of fruit, some yogurt, and a croissant. Oh, and some egg/spinach thingy.
Well…better luck tomorrow, I guess. The croissant was really good, at least. And they had good coffee, which also helped.
On the agenda for today is working in my hotel room, then greeting the rest of the work gang when they get in later this afternoon. I’m really looking forward to the reception we’re hosting tonight at the hotel. We’re expecting over 250 people so it should be a lot of fun!
Do you get overwhelmed at breakfast buffets?
What workout have you done/have planned for today?
How often do you work out your arms?
