Fit Buddies update
A running theme throughout our time as Fit Buddies has been balancing health and fitness with a busy work life. Like many of you, Ed Lavandera, Stacia Deshishku and I all have jobs that are unpredictable, and this week has been especially busy. For the last four days, each of us has been involved in covering the story of Andrew Speaker, the man who traveled to Europe for his wedding while carrying a rare form of tuberculosis. (Full Story)
Needless to say, getting to the gym, eating well and blogging are all difficult during breaking news. So, how have we all fared?
Stacia has had to miss her workouts this week - one of which we had planned to videotape for an updated piece about our success. (Watch Video) She promises Robert, though, that she'll be headed to his studio directly after work today!
Yesterday Ed had a slice of the pizza that was delivered to the CNN satellite truck in Denver, but he also managed to fit in a workout! (Sound familiar? I did the same thing at Virginia Tech, minus the workout.)
I missed my workouts as well, and most likely will miss tonight too. Chief Medical Correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta is headed to Denver tonight to anchor a one-hour special edition of Anderson Cooper 360 from National Jewish hospital. That means I'll be here in the office until the show is over at 11 p.m. ET.
Maybe Sanjay and Ed can talk fitness over tonight's pizza delivery?
