Happy Monday, you go-getters! I hope your Monday is off to an amazing start filled with delicious food and some motivation to get after it! Today, instead of going on and on about motivational stuff, I want to hear from you guys today! My blog has really evolved over the years because of readers. When people ask me to share something, I do it! Which is where my Weekly Workouts posts came from, then my Fashion Friday posts, and now my podcast! So I want to hear from you – what do YOU want to see within my Weekly Workouts posts? I started sharing workouts a long time ago then evolved it into sharing travel workouts, what I ate in a day, music and even on sale fitness apparel.

What I Ate in a Day While Traveling:
People always ask how I eat clean while traveling or say that they find it impossible to. But honestly, I’ve never found it impossible. Sure, I go to cities that have more options, but I also just make the best choices I can, no matter where I am. I get eggs for breakfast, no bread at lunch or dinner, no dessert with grains, I try not to drink much, and I just make things work. No, I don’t worry about cooking oils because that would drive me crazy, I just make the best choices I can wherever I’m at. So here’s a little glance inside one of my days in San Francisco last week. Sorry for some of the ugly photos but it was either early in the morning or in a super dark room, there was no saving these photos.
When I woke up at 5:30am to finish up my blog post for the day, I was pretty hungry so I ate a larabar that I brought with me for the trip (along with other snacks). Then I started my day off with room service around 7am. All they had were omelettes when it came to clean choices so I ordered one with spinach, caramelized onion, mushrooms and feta and it came with a side of potatoes. I almost finished it all but not quite, but I did finish all the potatoes (even though I knew they were fried, obviously).
Since my breakfast was pretty dang large, I didn’t need a snack before lunch at 12pm. We were able to grab snacks if we needed earlier in the day but I just didn’t feel hungry like some of the other people did. I think it comes down to eating such a good amount at breakfast. At lunch we had a menu that was already created for us. So I got a glass of white wine, then salad with a light vinaigrette on it, and when we had a choice of steak or pasta, I obviously got the steak! The server had a pretty heavy hand when it came to refilling our wine so I finally had to stop drinking it just so he wouldn’t refill it and I wouldn’t be the drunk of the group.
After our meal, they served dessert. It was some kind of cake so I just ate the whipped cream on the side along with the strawberries and candies on the other side of the cake, and just left the cake alone!
After lunch and listening to some panels, we hopped in our bus back to the hotel and were greeted by these little coffees on our car seats. I drank a couple sips of this one since I wanted a tiny pick-me-up but also wanted to sleep that night, too. It was really tasty!
Once we got back to our hotel rooms, we had 2 hours to chill out and clean up before dinner, so I worked on the blog more and ate a handful of plantain chips that I brought with me then got ready for dinner. If you’re wondering how to stay your healthier on trips, bring snacks. Once we got to dinner, I was asked if I had any allergies and I told them gluten. This restaurant was a Mexican restaurant so they only had to change out a few things since everything they made was made of corn. No, corn is not paleo, but it doesn’t upset my stomach. So we had this little corn appetizers, one with bean and cheese and the other with some sort of ceviches.
Then we had this crazy taco that was made from a homemade corn tortilla then bone marrow butter, an extremely roasted yam and salt on top. It was bomb!
Last but not least, the sexiest pic of all, this giant fix with some sort of chimichurri on top. It was pretty good! Pretty ugly, but pretty good.
Everyone was getting drinks at this restaurant because they had really good cocktails, but since I had some wine at lunch, I passed on the drinks. I keep those things in mind when traveling because a drink at each meal can add up really quickly.
