crouching blogger...nasty toilets...

Hello all,
signing on in Ohio...after three days of touring various states public restrooms, here are my recommendations for future travelers..
Best hotels kansas
Worst hotels....well, we had good hotels.
While the hotel in Kansas had awesomely clean sheets...
The hotel in Highland Illinois was very nice and helpful.
The best part of  highland, Illinois was silver lake park..It was beautiful and they had some really well trained ducks.
It had a fitness room where Iwas able to get an entire hour of cardio in the form of elliptical for 30 minutes and treadmill for 30 minutes.
The first night I swam and did calisthenics by the pool...100 jumping jacks and 50 pushups and some leslie sansone walk away the pounds type things.
As for the title....the award for worst public roads and nastiest toilets goes to...
Indiana....
ucck.
I will upload those tomorrow.
We just got in and my in laws are here...
so I am going to go and visit...do my workout and blog a bit more later.
Kept my calories at or below 1600 for the most part.
So definately no gains and about a 1000 calorie deficit as of right now.
So, talk at  you all later...
Hugs,
Chris

I got the distinct feeling you were whispering. Weird. Go enjoy the family. We miss you but we're here all the time. We'll wait and still love you when you come back.

Hotels with fitness rooms are always a good thing. Glad you've been able to get in some good workout time. :)

Paula Rodriguez said...

I agree. We'll be here waiting.

You are keeping on track great! Calories under 2,000 on vacation , now that is fantastic!

Glad you made it ok! I do hate public restrooms! I think they need to make cars with their own restroom in them, oh wait I guess that would be an RV or a camper.

The pets are doing ok! Duke really misses Kate! Don't think Leo knows what to think. We went over this evening and Ethan played with them both for awhile. They're doing good, just miss you all.

Great job on the workouts! Awsome! So few even think about workingout while on vacation.

I assume the "crouching blogger" came about BECAUSE of the nasty toilets?

Nasty toilets. Ick.

When we're doing squats in our Body Pump class, the instructor says to imagine a nasty potty you don't want to get your hiney anywhere near. It does create the perfect squat position.

Another plus to being fit and strong: when life gives you disgusting toilest, you have strong leg muscles to handle them!

Good to hear from you and that you've been able to get your exercise in. Update us when you can. :)

Have fun with the in-Laws!

Biggest problem with vacations seem to be when you refuse to eat their awful calorie-laden food and you can't get your food, you end up with a 1000 calorie deficit!
