Late this morning I was hit with a surge of energy. I’m not sure where it came from, but I decided to roll with it and laced up my gym shoes for a quick workout.
I am seeing a ton of neon workout apparel and sneakers at the gym lately and I love it. Neon orange shoe laces = Best part of my Reeboks!
Today’s workout was a total body circuit workout from the Best Body Boot Camp plan I’m following. This is officially the last week of the boot camp and I’m sad knowing it will be over soon.
It felt good to be back in the gym today. I managed to make it to the gym at our hotel twice while we were on vacation and ran outside with Ryan a couple of times, but I missed strength training. It felt great to work up a sweat and I left the gym ready to put more energy into my workday.
When I arrived back home, I worked through my normal lunchtime. I figured I should try to get back on Ocala time as much as possible today, so even though I wasn’t super hungry by 1 p.m., I made myself a random lunch that included a bowl of Honey Nut Chex topped with a sliced banana, almond milk and a sprinkling of raw cashews.
I also ate a few slices of deli ham on the side for some protein.
Quite the random meal, but it worked. Adjusting to the six-hour time difference took me about three days when we flew to Hawaii, but I’m hoping I adjust to the time difference a little faster this time around! My appetite is all out of whack and confused.
Questions of the Afternoon
- What is the biggest time difference you’ve had to adjust to after traveling? How long did it take you to adjust?
I have been checking the PBFingers FB page and nothing about the train wreck that was the Bachelor Pad…I always love your take on the show! No comment?
After a flight to Europe (8 hour time change) I couldn’t sleep at night while the rest of my family snoozed away. I LOVE to sleep! Not content with less than 9 hours a night. By the third night of not sleeping, I would just lay there and cry. It was awful!
As far as the food goes, I am always hungry and have never had a problem with not eating on a trip. 🙂

I try to not sleep while traveling over seas or places that have time zones that are a lot different. I remember going to Italy and not having a problem with the 6 hour time change (I didn’t sleep for right at 30 hours and when it was bed time in Italy I was out and up the next morning on their time), but the first 2 or 3 day I was back home, I found myself falling asleep around 6. The night after I got home, I fell asleep in a movie theater 15 minutes after it started 🙂 I loved reading about your trip, too! You guys looked like you had a lot of fun!!
I’m a huge advodate of anything neon. I am actually a little obnoxious with my workout clothes haha. At least I stand out at the gym and on the streets while I am running!

The biggest time difference I’ve had is when I moved from Australia (I think it’s like a 17 hour time difference)! The traveling in total took about 2 days and I was crazxy exhausted, so thankfully as so as I got over here I slept straight until morning the next day. Yay for not having jet lag!

Kudos! At least you still have time to workout and eat a healthy meal even though you’re on vacation. A lot of people who are on a diet and who try to be fit usually have a hard time sticking to their diet and exercise routine when on vacation. Very inspiring!
How do you like your reeboks? Do you run in them? If not what shoes do you like for running?
hi TJ! i like them A LOT! i primarily use them for circuit workouts, strength training, walking and cross training. they’re really supportive and comfortable. i haven’t tried running in them just yet, but that’s only b/c i usually run in my mizuno waveriders.
