Just flew in from London, and boy are my arms tired… I mean my brain. I mean my neck. I mean pretty much every part of me. I just got back from a super-quick business trip to London over the weekend, and my poor body doesn’t know what hit it! Here’s what the last four days looked like:
- Flew out Thursday night and arrived in the UK on Friday morning (sat in the cheap seats, so I only got about 1-2 hours of sleep)
- Worked from the hotel during the day Friday and was able to drop in at CrossFit London for a jet lag-busting workout (more on that below!)
- Worked all day Saturday and took my team out for a fab dinner at the Spice Market (short ribs! slow-cooked ribeye! yum!) in central London
- Spent the entire day Sunday flying back to Austin (long, long day, but… I did get unexpectedly upgraded to business class on the Heathrow-JFK flight – woohoo!)
Needless to say, I’m ready to get back into my food and workout routine – that much travel is just hard on the body. I will admit that I wasn’t 100% Paleo over the weekend, although I was pretty darn good. My biggest non-Paleo indulgences were dessert on Saturday night at the Spice Market (it was simply too good to turn down!) and a couple of pints of lager with my team. When in Rome, eh?
I did get to enjoy the very Paleo-friendly English breakfast during my stay… these guys do bacon right:
One of my very favorite parts of the trip was getting to drop in at CrossFit London over in the East End.
