Next Sunday, I am going somewhere I have never been before (isn’t that always fun!?). I am headed to North Carolina for work. I’ll be in the Asheville area for a full week, and I am pretty darn excited.
If you have any recommendations for good eats, please share!
I’ll be living out of a hotel for five nights; so, naturally, being the health nut that I am, I’ve already thought about how this will “throw off” my normal, safe, comfortable daily healthy lifestyle.
My week in NC is going to be a busy one, with long days orientating new employees about the wellness program at the brewery. I imagine that I will get plenty of steps in walking around the facility, but when I think of travel (whether for work or for leisure), the health nut in me thinks of two things: 1) food and 2) fitness.
What will I eat? I’ll have to eat out all week. When will I be able to exercise? Is there a gym at the hotel?
Who else thinks like this?
While I don’t want to throw my healthful lifestyle out the window for six days, I do want to experience the culture (i.e. eat Southern food) and enjoy this unique opportunity. Here are a few ways that I plan to sustain my healthy habits while not making my personal fitness and food choices be the focus of my travel:
– Walk as much as possible (wear my pedometer)
– Attend 1-2 yoga classes at the brewery or downtown Asheville
– Use the hotel gym a few times for quick HIIT/interval workouts
– Prepare my own breakfasts and most snacks
When in NC, I’ll have access to a co-op where I will stock my hotel mini fridge with apples, bananas, and carrots to pair with these flavorful almond butter packets. Plus, I foresee making oatmeal with nut butter in the morning… and dark chocolate with the vanilla/espresso flavor, well that is what I call a jet lag pick-me-up.
