Here we are at the tail end of our vacation and my workouts didn’t necessarily go as planned. I brought resistance bands, jump ropes & workout attire. The gym here is so much more than lackluster as I’m sure you read from Ava, not really indicative of motivation. Nevertheless, I still worked out, just not in your typical fashion!
Yes, I wore a bikini everyday and not being active in some way is totally not an option. Instead, I opted for 3 mile beach walks everyday in the shallow water for a bit of resistance and taking the stairs to our 14th floor condo. Not to mention trekking a beach cart filled with a 12×12 canopy, 5 lawn chairs, an umbrella & however many boogie boards and towels the thing will take through the sand. That’s trip one. Trip two is a diesel marine cooler. Yes, legs burning, heart racing, tri’s bulging…feels good. We also played paddle ball & tossed this awesome ball that bounces on the water. Unconventional, yes, but still a workout. I can’t wait to get home to get back into my usual routine, but I’m not going to beat myself up just because I didn’t get a gym workout.
Ava & I are actually headed to the beach with the fam this evening to do a beach body workout….pics and details to follow! We have to get one in before we leave
Hope this inspires you to move, no matter what the circumstances!
