My Madrid.

Departure

Sitting in Atlanta on Thursday evening I found a flight that had seats open, so I listed myself. In just one hour i’d be boarding my flight to Madrid, Spain. Working for the air lines has its perks. I checked in + was on my way to a new country.

There are a few things that I like to do while i’m on the flight, like checking the weather.

Once I land, I will look for a hotel. If I have an early morning flight I will just stay + sleep at the airport. It just so happens that once I was in Spain I found a great deal on a third party hotel site.

On my flight to Madrid I was seated as a standby in the first available seat, which happened to be in the main cabin. Here are what my meal looked like in the main cabin. NOTE: You do have access to unlimited wine/ non-alcoholic beverages in this cabin.

Arrival



Once I landed, I took a FREE hotel shuttle to the Marriott to see if I could check in early. Once I check in I like to go in + explore all of the amenities.

My Visit


After an hour nap, I took an uber into the city to explore.

Good Bye

Blessed to have gotten first class a few times. Huge difference in the meals:)

DAY ONE OF THIRTY ONE

RE-STARTING.

Getting my shit together. I was on a roll. I had discovered my power, I had found my motivation + I was moving towards my happy. Then. I opened that fcking email. I don’t think that anyone expects to open an email at 6am on a sunday morning with potentially devastating information. I didn’t either but thats exactly what happened.

Within one month I lost the life I thought I was going to have. The thought that I may meet someone + have a huge family. The guy that I was seeing at the time, that I thought was perfect for me. The emotional relationship/connection between myself + the guy I consider my person. DEVASTATING. The feeling of waking up without anxiety. I lost my spirit, my hope, my pride. I lost all of these things in that month. Mental hell.

I gained almost ALL of the weight back from this trauma. But today I am re-starting.

Two classes this am at the gym, then new meal plan + food restrictions. Im going into this STRICTER alkaline/vegan lifestyle/plan with courage. That’s really all that I need to start.

Day 1 of 31

Hotel Prep Master

On a budget + in a hurry, then why aren't you meal prepping?

I travel like it's my job, well actually it kind of is working for an airline. I love to go into places that aren't familiar to me + prove to myself that I can succeed. I am in this hotel for forty nights. There is no way that i'm going to eat out everyday. When I was on tour I took my hot plate and foreman grill with me, but that was a bit of a smoke alarm risk... This time around I brought my juicer, personal blender + I just purchased an electric skillet on sale for $15 from Wal-mart. 

I made four protein + vitamin packed meals in my room for just 

$25, less that $7/ meal.
