The last trip I went on was to Vegas a couple of years ago and I came back home with NO weight gain. That's one of my goals for this trip too, but I'm actually hoping to lose weight. I know, it's vacation. But if I didn't gain any weight in Vegas, it's very possible to lose some on this trip. Here's why:
- Vegas = buffets, beers, and sitting down gambling
- Oregon/Nevada/Cali = LOTS of walking around, access to gyms, much healthier food
Since Anthony won't be joining me on this trip, I'm bringing one of my other loves.
Yup, I've brought my Bodybugg out of retirement (read my reviews here and here). Although I won't be tracking my calorie intake on my trip, I'm really curious to see my calorie burn and step count. I'm hoping to see a burn of 2500+ and a step count of 20,000+. On any given day (sitting at a desk for 8 hours + my workout), I burn about 2100 calories and get about 8500 steps, so my goal numbers are doable, right?
Another thing I made sure to pack:
My supplements, including protein powder, fish oil, multi-vitamin, creatine, and BCAA's. I'm bringing ALL my supps because I've googled the closest gyms to my hotel and I've got my workouts planned into my schedule, so here's hoping that I'll be in a gym (or two) over the next couple of weeks.
I'll have very limited access to the outside world while I'm away (just how I like it!) so I'll be catching up with you guys in two weeks! Hope you enjoy the scheduled posts coming up.
