Vacation can be tough with staying on track. It is time where you want to enjoy yourself, but not get too carried away from the progress you have made. I definitely try to squeeze in some workouts or running while away. God knows my eating and drinking will be no where near it usually is, so at least if I am burning some extra calories I can have some kind of balance.
Two weeks ago we left for a week long vacation with Michael’s family in North Carolina. They rent a big house right on the ocean and a bunch of his family comes. It is super nice to get away and to just unplug for a week. That being said, a lot of the time there is spent on eating and drinking. Like snacks, on snacks, on snacks and drinking every night. Three years ago when I first went on their vacation I was all about it. Now as I am a little older and more in-tune about my health, I don’t enjoy eating processed food (it makes me feel like crap), getting drunk every night, and not being productive the next day. Honestly I don’t think my body could handle it either.
So to help me stay on track I did a few workouts during the week we were there. This one was inspired by The Pretty Little Lifters, who I follow on Instagram. They are really inspiring, along with having killer bodies. I slightly modified a workout they posted the other week.
4 Rounds for Time:
400 meter run
50 air squats
15 sprawl tuck jumps
I did this on the beach in the sand. Running and jumping in the sand is no joke. I finished in 18:50, but it was in no way my best performance. I will try this again at some point and see if I do better, which I think I will. Give it a go and let me know how it is. Or save it for the next vacation or trip you are on. Any kind of workout is better than no workout!!
