Getting Back Into A Routine

Hey y'all! I didn't post much here last week because I was on vacation with my family in Florida. We went to Disney World and Sea World - it was an action-packed week - also not my best week fitness-wise. I had the good intentions of using the resort's fitness center all week, but I made it like twice. Ugh. Bad Gym Bunny.

It's not easy to stay on track while on vacation, so I'm not even going to pretend like it is. This particular vacay was go-go-go from sun up to sundown. We had to get up early each day, get ourselves and the kids ready, do breakfast, then head out to the theme park of the day early to beat crowds. We would stay at each one all day long and be exhausted by the time we got back to our resort. And then of course, that's when cocktails would start flowing.

So yeah, I wasn't at my best at all...and I'm seeing the havoc I've wreaked on my body this past week. But in all actuality, I am glad I enjoyed myself...that I did make it to the fitness center twice (meaning I did make an effort) and we did walk around all day at the parks. I read online that the average person walks anywhere from 6-13 miles a day at Disney World. We also didn't pig out on park food - we brought a cooler with our own lunches and healthy snacks.

But now it is definitely time to start this week off the right way. I'm working the opening shift at my gym this morning and I came a little early to get some cardio out of the way before my shift started.

Bottom line, it's OK to relax and enjoy yourself once in a while, so long as you get yourself back on track right away. And these two happy guys - well, they were worth it.
