Surprise! Didn’t think you would hear from me until Saturday night, did you? Well it turns out there is not much to do in the backseat of a car for 10ish hours besides read, sleep, talk, and write blog posts.
Last night I went to the BEST gym. It was an all women’s gym in Chattanooga that my friend Dana uses. It is just like a normal gym except the clientele is all female and the place is beautiful. Seriously, this gym is gorgeous. I love my gym at home because it has great equipment, and I love the gym I worked at because it had character. (By character I mean it was generally falling apart.) Dana’s gym, Studio 360, is new and beautiful with all the right equipment too. They also have a movie theater room, where there are rows of exercise equipment in front of a huge screen that plays new movies every day. I didn’t get to use the movie theater gym area but I would love to have that option – it looked awesome! Being in such a great gym made me want to open up one of my own that women could LOVE. There actually might be a similar gym in my area, but I’m currently unaware of it.
This morning we bought our breakfasts at a gas station. For a few weeks I’ve been wanting a muffin and orange juice for breakfast so I finally bought it. When I got in the car and opened my muffin I realized that this was a huge mistake – the muffin had 690 calories! Oh NO! I ate half of it for breakfast and then the other half an hour later when I realized I was still hungry. It tasted yummy, but I regret eating it and wish I had skipped the craving for some fruit. Eating on the road can be hard and I’m not making it any easier on myself. I must learn to say no to something that has 42 FAT grams in a single serving. I honestly feel sick thinking about this. * gag * I decided on a super healthy lunch to balance out the muffin madness.
Alrighty. We are spending the night in Harrisonburg, Virginia and then on to Pennsylvania. After that I’ll be in D.C. and then Chicago. Let me know in the comments what I should see in Washington D.C. (been there) and Chicago (never been). I’ve got at least 1.5 days in each city to do whatever I want, so let me know what I HAVE to do or just what your favorite things in each city are. I’ll make a list and try to do as much as possible. It’s going to be a fun week!
