Some folks are going on Spring Break next week. Me? I’ll be on a road trip with the First Son and dragging the middle Son along to take a peek at a few colleges. Should be interesting! The thought of all the hotel stays brought to mind the whole “When do I exercise?” dilemma. If you are wondering what to do in your hotel room, check out the 12 Minute Athlete for some ideas. http://www.12minuteathlete.com/hotel-room-workouts/.
This was my favorite warm lunch this week. I really wanted a warm, gooey grilled cheese sandwich but had this warm, gooey hummus flat thing instead. Really good! Hummus and lettuce between two LaTortilla Factory Mini Three Seed Soft Wraps. 50 calories each, 5 g fiber, 0 trans fats and 2 gr protein each. Very tasty. Didn’t even miss the cheese!
Life offers no guarantees, only opportunities
Here’s hoping you have a great Friday and Weekend!
Any thoughts on this Mothers of Boys will die young theory? Any tips on how I should handle this new bit of info? Do you exercise in your hotel room? Jump on the bed? Take your own pillow?
