I’ve been a little MIA with my posts and I apologize for that.
We went on a very well needed family vacation back up to Wisconsin for a week and now are recharged 🙂
During our vacation I didn’t train the same way I have been. Instead I went for a long run/walk everyday and did a lot of body weight exercises. And this was for two reasons.
1. I wanted to take a small break and just move. I wanted to make sure I did something everyday, but not worry about getting certain exercises in. And that’s OK.
2. I wanted to take advantage of the beautiful weather and scenery around me. The one thing I do really miss is all the hills, trees and nature we had back in Wisconsin. I know here in Texas, we do have all that…somewhere LOL. But not where we live, so it was so nice just to go out and run and enjoy everything.
It’s OK to deviate from your training while you are traveling either for work or vacation. Biggest goal should be just to MOVE!
Now, even though I did do something everyday, I will admit we didn’t stick to our nutrition all the time. We didn’t go overboard, but we did have extra non-compliant meals.
And you know what????
That is OK!!!!
So when we got back I knew I needed a jump start, so I did a quick 1 week detox. I’ll get more into what the detox was in another post, but this was not a juice cleanse, or calorie restrictive detox. But more of adding in vitamins and minerals my body needed and taking out the crap I didn’t.
I got back on my nutrition and got back into the gym and after 2 weeks of getting back into it, I am happy with the results!
I have lost 5 pounds during these 2 weeks and feel so much better.
As much as I love vacations and allowing myself to eat, well really anything 😉 , I feel so much better when I am back to my training and nutrition programs.
I’ll be updating again next week to talk about my training and what I changed with my nutrition. So make sure you check back next week!!!
