*first & foremost, can anyone tell me how to make blogger show more than just one blog at a time on my dashboard...help*
WELL here I am, back to the grind.
okay that's a lie because I am on summer break, but I am back from vacay and back to somewhat normalcy.
Now since D & I joined Planet Fitness back in February, we haven't gone more than 2 days in a row without being there...well it was over a week (we made it back EVERY DAY since we have been home.)
it worried me.
I was afraid I would totally derail off my plan and slump back into laziness since we were not hitting the gym 4-5 days last week.
SO instead I decided to do some workouts at the condo, to make myself feel better. I tried to do them in the mornings before our day got started (& so they were outta the way)
I wanted to share a few At-Home workouts I did. I did a combos of any of these moves.
100 jumping jacks
100 regular crunches
10 push ups
4-30 second planks
1 minute of jump rope (x2)
50 hip raises (lower abs)
5o bicycle crunches
3 x 10 fire hydrants
3 x 10 kick backs
Did I do these every day? I wish I could say yes, but I didn't. I got these in a few times plus we did stairs (we were on the 7th floor & D and I took the stairs a lot)
I also tried to be prepared for the eating portion. I won't lie, I splurged a few times and it WAS SOOOO worth it. However, I didn't want the whole week to a crap fest of eating so I packed smartly.
I made a trail mix & the portioned them out into baggies to eat for the car ride down/back so i wouldn't be tempted.
I also premade sandwhiches (using Ezekiel bread, turkey & mustard) so i wouldn't have to worry about fast food temptations/fatty sub sandwiches)--plus got these brown rice snaps (aka crackers) and am obsessed.
I brought my organic oatmeal and topped it with bit of granola, when everyone else as eating biscuits and gravy.
Other things I did, I made sure we got a lot of fruit and had a big fruit tray to snack on. I brought my kashi bars for breakfasts. When we would go out to lunch I would look for 'lighter options' such a s grilled chicken & veggies because I knew that night i wanted to enjoy the mexican food.
all about balance.
I am proud to say I didn't gain one single pound on vacation. I am feeling great and ready to be back on the the healthy train!
How do you stay healthy on a vacation?
