Day 133, 134 & 135: cross training in Chicago

chicago from the airSo I apologize that I haven’t been keeping up properly. I was away from home and totally out of my regular routine. We took off for Chicago last Wednesday. Got in late, but I still managed to get my behind out of bed by 6:30 that next morning (5:30 to my body) and hit the gym. I did AMT for 40 minutes and then another 15 minutes of yoga. It felt great! The best part of the day was walking around Chicago (mostly getting lost) and spending a few hours in Starbucks reading my clients new book (which is awesome, check it out!) After that I cruised around a bit. I found the Omni hotel where all of Oprah’s guests stayed. I stopped for a minute (like loonie) and took it all in. I could hear her do her like, “All guests of the Oprah show stay at the “Ommmm-ni” hotel in downtown Chicago…” Amazing. Then I headed back to the hotel – which was super cool too (KnickerBocker). The next morning I was up even earlier (5:50) and hopped on the bike for 20 minutes and the elliptical for 20 minutes. I did some yoga and headed up to the room, got ready for the day (which started at 7:30.) So we went to Speakers School from 7:30 – 4:00, had amazing sushi at this restaurant in Chicago called “Ai” So good. Then back to the hotel to work on a few things. And up again even earlier (5:45) at the gym for 45 minutes and out the door again for 7:30 a.m. We finished speakers school at 11:30, headed to O’Hare to fly back to Calgary. Now, because of the storm on the east coast we ended up sitting at the gate for over an hour waiting for crew members … then when we got to Toronto our flight was over two hours late (YAHOO!) Then when I finally got home at 1:00 am, my son woke up about 1.5 hours later throwing up. But I have to admit, as much as I LOVED my time in Chicago, I was pleased to be back home with him!

Hope everyone is doing well out there!
