I was barely home this week. Thursday was a packing and cleaning day at home, and at 2 am Friday morning I was up and heading out to Chicago for the International Home and Housewares Show. I knew it was going to be a long busy weekend, and my only goal for the week was to not eat myself silly. I made sure my Up by Jawbone was charged and ready to go, but had the charger in my luggage just in case.
I do not sleep well when I'm traveling, and I replaced sleep with calories. My morning breakfast consisted of large mocha's and chocolate stuffed pastries, and it happened for a few mornings. It got me through the day, and I was not too cranky spanky. Breakfast and lunch were kind of interchangeable depending on when I was able to get to a coffee shop.
I had a hard time staying hydrated. I was running from booth to booth at the show, and even with a water bottle in my bag, finding a fountain to refill was a bit of a stretch. I did my best, and only ran a little on the dehydrated side this week.
I walked this week, boy oh boy did I walk! I was at the McCormick Place for the conference for four days. Those 4 days I took almost 50,000 steps and walked over 22 miles! The only day this week I did not hit my personal goal of 5,500 steps a day was Wednesday. I made it home just a little after midnight, and passed out hard. Even with dragging between lack of sleep, jet lag, and a time change thrown in, I somehow managed 4,600 steps.
