Want to try "Dana's HIIT Vacation Workout"? (released 5/26/15) Get RealResults for 14 days right here.
How do you handle enjoying your vacation without going completely off the rails and not be able to get back on?
That's what Sally & Dawn wanted to know as they each were gearing up for their own girls' getaways. Sally had a long weekend in New England & Dawn was headed to one of the beautiful US Virgin Islands.
Fear not, my fellow RealFitters. Vacationing is part of living a #RealFitLIFE 🙂
There a few concepts I have adopted over the years that I apply to my vacations. What makes them super effective is actually how I handle my life when I'm NOT on vacation.
1. I already have my mind set: Vacation is to break away from the every-day norm. The purpose is pleasure. I am most focused on what feels right in the moment.
2. Because working out feels good to me, sometimes I DO, sometimes, I DON'T. It truly depends. I bring my gear so I have it if I am inspired, if I don't workout, well that's good too.
3. If my vacation is doing what it's supposed to, this point will be moot. Before I leave, I DECIDE that my workout routine resumes as normal. However, most often, I feel recharged & re-focused when I get back, so I'm excited to dive back in. (Especially knowing that decent time off is GREAT for muscle growth & strength gains!)
4. Food is Food. There is no "good food" or "bad food" to me anymore. This is a concept I have adopted for all of my other days, so I don't need to go completely nuts on vacation because I eat what I want even when I'm home.
5. If I do go over-board & eat or drink too much, I just move the hell on. No punishment. No beating myself up. No more vicious cycles or emotional roller-coasters. I over eat sometimes. Ok. And then I put it behind me.
Next week (May 26, 2015) I am releasing "Dana's HIIT Vacation Workout" where I share what I'll be doing (if anything!) when I'm in Punta Cana.
I'll be providing a printable workout sheet that you can take with you - no need for the video - you'll have my notes!
If you want in on the action, go here & do a trial run for 14 days. Come see for yourself 🙂
