Hi guys! Happy Tuesday!! How is everyone’s week going? It’s another rainy day here, blah. But, I guess we can always make our own sunshine, right?!
Beauty & The Beast comes out on DVD today!! Is anyone else as excited as I am? 🙂
To get my day started off on the right track, I ran 3 miles this morning, then did 15 reps of the 5 moves for 3 rounds from the Sunset Sweat routine on Tone It Up. Woohoooo!
Today I wanted to chat a little bit about working out while on vacation. As I wrote before, I worked out in Delray Beach at the hotel fitness center, and I did work out while in the Bahamas.
The penthouse fitness center at Sandals Royal Bahamian is GORGEOUS! It is floor to ceiling windows facing the ocean. I tried to snap a few pictures while in there, but I was only able to take pictures of a few treadmills and the view out the window since I didn’t want to take a picture of other people getting their sweat on. (I would totally look like a creep!!) There are other machines, weights, and they also offer classes. To put it lightly, I was definitely enjoying my run while watching the ocean waves crash against the sand. I couldn’t help but listen to the Moana soundtrack on repeat too!!
I am much more laid back with working out while on vacation than I am at home. I workout every day when I am home, and I usually am a grump if I don’t, but when I am on vacation I don’t feel the need to get one in every single day of the trip. Sometimes it changes depending where I am, but in the Bahamas I was totally laid back and just enjoying my time with my husband, and not worrying about having to workout. I did get to the fitness center a couple times, but that was only on days my internal alarm clock woke me up before 7am and I was ready to go. Lol!
I usually make sure the resorts we stay at have fitness centers, just to make sure that we will have access to one while away. Luckily, when we go to Disney we usually stay at a DVC resort, and they all have fitness centers! I must say though, this was my favorite one ever. I have never had the chance to run on the treadmill and stare at the beautiful blue ocean water, and I so wish I could look at that view every single day when I workout. Wouldn’t that be nice?! Being active and working out is a priority for me, and I feel my best when I am doing something for myself and for my body.
I still eat healthy, which is always my goal, but don’t get me wrong, I still like to enjoy myself while on vacation. Drinking champagne and having fruity daiquiris every day is not a normal occurrence around here, but I was completely relaxed and just loving life. And you should too!!
Cheers to not beating yourself up if you don’t workout everyday while on vacation!
I hope you all have a fabulous day! Be kind and SPARKLE! Xoxoxo
