I’m back in Cali, which means I’m back at work and back to my routine.
Unfortunately, I feel a bit like this:
Yep, a bloated cat, that’s what I feel like.
When I’m on vacation, I do try to balance healthy eating and some rigorous activity with the added treats and splurges.
Unfortunately this trip my activities didn’t quite balance my indulging. Meep! While we did do about 1.5 hours of kayaking on Sunday, and a 3 mile run Monday (in the HOT weather I might add, so it was like double..haha), and a 2-3 mile walk on the beach on Tuesday, this did not combat my eats. I don’t feel too incredibly guilty because I enjoyed all of my extra treats.
I only get to see my Mom about 1x per year and she’s always great about buying things I like, including Brach’s gummy fruits (sooo good — love these things). And well, it’s hard to say no. And frankly, I didn’t want to. I also liked indulging in some coconut vanilla cake, a DQ Blizzard (quite refreshing after our beach day), and huge heaping portions of watermelon.
But now I’m home and ready to face reality and also the scale (side note: I need to write a post about the scale…my opinions may surprise you).
While my tastebuds still have a hankering for some sweet treats and salty goods, I am mentally very excited to start consuming my greens, my balanced meals, and my typical eats (oats, salads with chickpeas, etc).
I’m also stoked to get a nice long sweat session going on tonight with the gym. I like to “earn my treats” and right now I’ve got a debt to pay in the exercise department before I can earn some more
brownie points brownies.
Also on my agenda is some major cleaning. I love coming back to an organized clean home so tonight will also include tidying up and tackling the beast of a laundry basket that’s consuming our closet. Oye.
How do you get back into your routine after a vacation?
