After an eventful week in LA, I head east for the next leg of my tour: London (48 hours), Paris (48 hours) and then New York to shoot some TV shows with FOX.
To stay in shape on the road, I religiously stick to my morning routine. First thing without fail when I get up, I squeeze my lemon juice, drink a cup of sobacha® and practice morning yoga in my room to loosen everything up. I always carry my grilled buckwheat (kasha) extract (sobacha®) and lemons with me wherever I go, that way no excuses!
First stop London. I meet with my editor’s entire team. They work the anglo-saxon way, with a rigorous agenda, tightly run meetings and a relaxed atmosphere. I am spoiled for lunch with a delicious sushi spread.
To round off a busy day packed with meetings back to back, nothing beats a lovely amble around Covent Garden, an area I love. The weather is warm and sunny and Londoners are making the best of this glorious English summer day. This is a city where we feel completely safe!
10,000 steps on the pedometer for the day, 10 minutes yoga and 5 minutes Magic Circle.
We take advantage of the balmy evening to dine al fresco and fire up the BBQ right here in central London… and who said that BBQ = fatty sausages and other burger patties? Not your coach! On the menu we have freshly line caught seabass with dill and fresh lemon accompanied by steamed new potatoes (yes, of course potatoes are welcome at LeBootCamp!).
Breakfast on business trips can often be difficult to manage. My solution? In London, Paris or New York, I rush to Pain Quotidien where a delicious raw breakfast is served (their famous « raspberry crunola parfait »). Yumm! a great way to start the day with a meal full of fiber and vitamins (and, most importantly delight for the taste buds)
Now, it is off to Paris….. 2h30 on the Eurostar and 1000 glute squeezes later I arrive at the city of lights. How many squeezes are you up to today? Fewer? What are you waiting for?
As much as it is easy to find gluten and lactose free meals in London or in the US, it is quite a bit trickier in Paris!
But, no reason to fret, one can always find a seasonal berry salad with a scoop of lemon sorbet. Yummy!
For the cherry on the cake after an intense 2 days in Paris, 2 hours walk… and 5 French goals against the Swiss in the world cup. What a week!
Special dedication to my amazing team live from Paris… in front of a place that is about to become very important to us!
Tomorrow, up in the air for New York, heading off for new adventures! A fantastic week to you all and I leave you with a challenge just for you:
