Have you ever felt like you need a vacation from you vacation?
It’s been go, go, go! since we got back from St. Lucia, and to be quite honest, I’m having a hard time getting back on ‘real world’ time.
I want to go back to sleeping in. And I want a butler to come to my beach chair and serve me screw drivers at 10 AM. And I want to go back to not working out and not caring about it.
When on Island Time, workouts came in forms of hiking mountains and climbing under waterfalls.
But now I’m back in town and my alarm is my arch nemesis. I loathe the treadmill (but what else is new?) I’m also suppressing the urge to stuff my face on a constant basis.
I know, my life is so hard.
Am I the only one who kind of goes into “slightly crazy” mode after vaycay because you feel like you went a little overboard at the resort buffet (everyday)?
When I try to “get back on track” I often find myself falling prey to fitness myths, even though I know better.
For example: Simply going to the gym is going to make everything better.
Or: If I eat less calories, surly I’ll feel better soon.
Thank goodness Danae sent me this interview that she conducted for Women’s Health Base. Danae talked with fitness expert and personal trainer, John Romaniello; and after reading it, my head was finally pulled out of my ass and placed back on my shoulders.
Working out (with a plan in mind), getting adequate amounts of sleep and eating the right kinds of foods are what really makes the magic happen. Thanks for the reminder, Danae!
*Disclaimer: I’m not trying to lose weight. I’m just trying not to feel like a food vacuum and a slob*
Let’s chat –
In regards to health and fitness: When you come back from a trip, do you just pick up where you left off, or do you try to compensate for what you ate/drank on vacation?
Where did you go on your last vacation?
