Workout: 30 minutes stair climber and 30 minutes elliptical. Same old same old breakfast, lunch, and snacks. After school my mom called me to meet up with her for an after school treat. It was the perfect timing! I was craving some good old yogurt and fruit. She also got me an instyler…. score! My straightener and blow dryer died on the same day, I have been having some rough hair days.
My yogurt: Pomegranate, vanilla, fruit, gummy bears and weird gelatin balls.
I am going to start this topic by saying I have already come a long way in my addiction to exercise and I already know that I need to continue working on it. I am posting this so that you don’t just see me as a picture but as a real person and so that if anyone else struggles with these things we can work on it together.
Billy bought an awesome car, 1967 Barracuda. We are thrilled. He loves working on cars and he found this one for an amazing deal. When I got home he asked me if I wanted to go to Seattle next weekend to pick it up. Um…yes!!! Seattle is one of my favorite places ever. I started thinking about how fun this road trip with my bestie was going to be and how much fun we were going to have in Seattle going to Pike’s Place, the most gorgeous Nordstrom ever and of course seeing Billy’s face light up when he first see’s his new car. Then the good old anxiety kicked in.
-We are going to Vegas this weekend…. that means two full weekends of not teaching spin, normal exercise routine and a whole lotta eating out!
-In my crazy mind I think I will gain 10 lbs from sitting in a car for a total of 40 hours over the course of the next two weeks and tempted to eat junk the whole time.
-I will lose some of my strength and endurance that I have worked so hard to gain by skipping 6 workouts in total.
-I love ENDORPHINS
Then I realized I was being 100% totally crazy. Life is not about working out! How in the world could I even compare not being able to exercise to how much fun I am going to have with Billy and time off work. I needed a change of perspective. I needed to remind myself of what REALLY matters in life. Taking a few days off will be so beneficial for my sanity and for my body to take a break from constant training.
What are your tips and strategies for vacations/car rides/lots of eating out and staying sane? I know I sound like I have it all figured out now but I need some help for the times that I start going crazy again to bring me back to reality.
