Traveling for business or traveling for pleasure? Does it really make a difference when it comes to eating and fitness?
I am such a routine type person. When I travel I get out of my normal eating and working out routine. I always pack clothes with full intention to get moving at the hotel but it rarely happens. Eating out every meal gets old fast and very difficult to stay on track. On Monday my Mini Me and I packed our bags and hopped in the car and headed over the mountains to the Mile High City (5280)
We arrived with plenty of time to wear our feet out at Park Meadows mall for a few hours then headed to our hotel. Once checked in we continued to walk and walk and walk up and down the 16th street mall in Downtown Denver for more shopping. Does shopping really count for burning calories?
Since we were in the city I let my Mini Me choose the dinner house. Dinner was awesome. We went to Maggiano’s Italian Restaurant. I had full intentions of being good but my Mini Me said mom you’re at Maggiano’s how often do you get to eat this kind of pasta? Ok so I ordered the Spaghetti and the HUGE meatball for dinner. We ordered the dessert sampler platter. Really, I should have just said NO! Because you can’t just have one bite when you have so many choices.
Business meetings/classes really take its toll on me. I am not one to just sit from 9-4 straight. The rooms are always freezing and I need to move around! After the business meeting my mini me chose Rodizio Grill for dinner. My recommendation is to not eat the salad bar. The meat servers bring out 15 types of meat for you to eat. OMG! So good!
Here are the favorites we enjoyed!
Turkey wrapped in Bacon
Sweet & Spicy Chicken
This place is amazing. When you need a break just flip the marker over to red and when you are ready to eat again flip it back to green and when you have had enough lay it on it’s side and the server will come with the huge choices of desserts. I highly recommend you take your appetite for Rodizio Grill!
After two nights of eating incredible food we managed to get in a workout the next morning. We biked and then did an upper body workout. Wow What a week. Time to get back at it.
Do you have any traveling recommendations for staying on track?
