There once was a time when I couldn’t fathom why anyone would want to exercise on vacation. Isn’t the point to relax? That was when I viewed exercise as a means to burn calories and not much more. Times have changed.
Now it feels good to get out and move! Without the stroller I feel like I’m flying. In fact, I averaged under 10 minute miles on my 2.3 miles this morning. That’s lightening speed for me!
A few wogs and yoga poses on vacation actually helps me feel more relaxed and more ready to enjoy the treats, like this organic superfruit sangria I found at Whole Foods.
We’re staying at a friend’s house that has a fabulous kitchen, so we’ve been enjoying eating healthy foods with our plethora of wine.
Farmers market corn and okra with fresh fish. It’s fun to gather all in the kitchen for some laughs and good food after the babies go to bed.
We’ve been having fun with the babies, too. We visited the beach.
Both Hailey and Parker sampled the sand.
We played on boats.
We’ve gone swimming and worn ourselves out.
Hailey actually loves her room and has slept like a dream. This leaves the nights open for mom and dad to drink wine and play music trivia with friends into the night. I’ve been reminded of just how awesome Boys II Men, Mariah Carey and Ace of Base truly are.
Do you exercise on vacay?
