Olympia - Day 1 - The Challenges of Travel

Typical travel day . . .

Got up at 6 a.m.  Driver picked us up at 6:45 and arrived at the airport in Leon at 8:30.

Flight to Houston on time at 9:30.  2 hour layover there.  Then 3 1/2 hours to Vegas.  

Considering the time change, got here at 4 p.m. (6 p.m. CST).

Bus to car rental.  Turn on GPS.

At last of the chicken breasts prepared last night for the trip on the way to Target for a few groceries and then on to Whole Foods for the rest of the "essentials" - egg whites, Ezekiel bread, cottage cheese, bottled water, coffee, and a salad and some prepared fish for dinner.

Back across Vegas to the MGM Signature on the strip where we have a condo for the week -- quick dinner in the room and then at 9 p.m. CST -- off to the gym.  

Not the greatest workout, but beats nothing for sure.  And that's the hard part -- to stay disciplined, to get it done.  Not just go through the motions but to give everything you have, or at least everything you have left.

Back up to the room and finished off the fish.  Now a little yogurt for "dessert" and off to bed.

Tomorrow will be back on schedule -- early morning workout and early evening cardio.  

Olympia "weekend" starts on Wednesday and moves into full gear Thursday.

Will provide the play by play in this blog as we move through the weekend and the weekend.

Take care.  Train hard.  Diet harder.
