A recap of my weekly workouts from the previous week.
New week, new weather (hopefully). I mean where is the sun?! The weather has been pretty crappy here the last week – it was super cold for a bit, then it warmed up, but it was raining and just cloudy. I moved to Austin to avoid this stuff!
My parents came into town last week and we traveled to Fredericksburg for the weekend so I took a few days off from working out. We walked around a lot so it was nice to keep moving! It’s been hard to workout when my parents are here, but I’m still trying to get in a few workouts per week.
I’ve said it before, but I used to be the person that would need to workout 5-6 times a week. If I was on vacation I would find a gym, do a bodyweight workout, or go for a run. I felt I had to get a workout in since I was probably enjoying myself while away, usually indulging in food or drinking. While I definitely think it’s important to stay moving and active on vacation or away from your normal routine, but it doesn’t have to be an end all be all. If you can fit in a workout, awesome, but if it turns into something you are stressing about, it might be causing more harm than good.
My parents definitely don’t mind me going to workout and they know it is something I enjoy and it keeps me happy. But I barely get to see them since they live halfway across the country so if we have plans and a workout just isn’t going to fit, I’m telling myself it’s okay. Missing one or two days isn’t going to kill me or set me back too much and will just make the next time I hit the gym be even better.
