A recap of my weekly workouts from the previous week.
Vacation and working out don’t really go together for a lot of people. They want to relax, drink, and eat (myself included). Even if you are pretty active on a daily basis, people usually end up slipping up on vacation. I know I definitely do. Especially when you are traveling with other people who don’t workout regularly or have the same mindset. They don’t understand what the big deal is if you miss a few days or eat the pizza, french fries, and ice cream. Don’t get me wrong, vacation is all about relaxing and enjoying things you don’t usually, but you don’t want to lose sight of your goals and all the hard work you have put in.
Last week was somewhat of a struggle for me to get moving. I wanted to have fun on vacation, but knew I had to break a sweat some days. Working out makes me happy, challenges my mind and body, relieves stress, and just makes me feel good overall. I get annoyed, sluggish, and sometimes mad if I miss too many workouts. That is why it is so important for me to stay active when I am away from home and it should be for you too. You put in a lot of hard work working up to your vacation, why would you throw it all out once you get there? Even if you just do a 10 minute workout, that is better than nothing. A healthy lifestyle should be a continuous journey and not something you set a deadline for. Consistency is key and results will come when you are consistent.
I am actually still struggling to get back into the swing of things. But today is Monday and you should always start your week off on the right foot in the direction you want to be heading. So I’m off to get a good sweat in and pick up in my eating habits where I left off.
Sunday – 5 mile beach run
Monday – CrossFit type workout
EMOM for 21 minutes
minute 1: 15 burpees
minute 2: 30 air squats
minute 3: 15 push-ups
Did this EMOM with Michael. It wasn’t horrible, but felt good to move and be out of breath some.
Tuesday – rest day/didn’t feel like doing anything/day drinking
Wednesday – beach/track workout
6 x 800m with 1:30 rest in-between. Tried to stay under 3:30 each round and did the last one at a facer pace.
Thursday – travel day back to Austin
Friday – CrossFit WOD
15 calorie bike
10 toes to bar
10 power cleans
I got 4 + 2 T2B using 85#. Didn’t feel like doing anything, but knew I probably should. Felt good to get a little burner in though!
Saturday – rest day/didn’t plan accordingly to get a workout in
It wasn’t the best week, but it certainly wasn’t the worst. I am happy I did some active things, but now it is time to get back to the grind this week!
