Working Out on the Road

I am just back from a week-long work trip to two of our offices on the west coast…

I managed to do my PiYo every day using my Beachbody on Demand Club membership to access my purchased Beachbody workouts and just steamed them from my laptop.  I still got up around 5 am sometimes early…the time change for me was -4 hrs so it was a bit hard to adjust too


Calgary Skytower…great view to workout too


Working out in my room in Vancouver…tight fit but it worked 🙂

I did have my chocolate Shakeolgoy 4 out of the 6 days on the road…I do notice that when I don’t drink it I pick at food and nothing seems to really satisfy my hunger…so this is a good thing for when I drink it I don’t want to eat all through the day.

Now food is where I didn’t fare so well…seemed like the restaurants I went to were full of carbs…had some sushi and noodle bowls and plenty of oysters.  With my supper meals I would have an alcoholic beverage 🍷🍹 two at the most. This is a huge improvement of my past where I would sit back and drink just because…but since working out the past year I find I don’t tend do that any more :mrgreen:

Starbucks in Calgary had these awesome protein boxes…great for the afternoon breaks

Every day I also got at least 10000 steps.walking to the offices or out to supper at night…I enjoyed going out rain (I took my wet-skin rain-suit with me)  or shine just nice to be outside enjoying the sunshine and the very few flowers that i found.


Now that I am back home it will be great to get back into routine and follow 21 Day Fix meal plan; but first I am doing the 3 Day Refresh to cleanse out the toxins I had over the past week and get down to my target weight around 115 lbs…while I was away I gained 3.6 lbs…crazy!



Photo Session in Punta Cana

I totally recommend the onsite photographers; you can either get your photo done with some of the animals (the go around the resort so sometimes you have to flag them down if they are busy) or you can get your photo done with people in costume. If you want something a little more formal you can get pro shots done and go around the resort to get your photos done…

No commitment or costs unless you want to purchase.  We did both and got some of each for our anniversary of being together for 22 years. ❤

Cuba bound…again

Varadero Beach, Cuba

This time we are headed off to Cayo Coco and really looking forward to the relaxation…I will do a review on Trip Advisor when we return in April :)…the countdown to food (we don’t have to cook), drinks, snorkelling and checking out the sites is on baby!

Melia Cayo Coco is in Cayo Coco which is an island linked to mainland Cuba by a 17km road over the sea.  Named after the coco bird/white Ibis…

Here are the reviews from Trip Advisor (I always check this site for pretty much everything even a local things…but you can’t take everything there to word for word some people just have  bad days, like to complain or expect way too much it is just nice to have an idea of what to expect)
