Refreshed, Bloated and Eager
Wednesday, September 24, 2014
Back to my normal routine after a week vacation. I went to New Buffalo, Michigan for four days. It was fantastic. New Buffalo is a small town off Lake Michigan, and is part of a cluster of other small beach towns. It's hopping in the summer months, but since I went during the off season there aren't many visitors. I was told this is when the locals start coming back out. Haha We stayed in a 30 room inn, and while we were there only one other room was occupied. We had the beach all to ourselves. It wasn't warm enough to take advantage of the lake, but it was warm enough to sit out comfortably in the sun, read a book and listen to the waves. I can't tell you how relaxing it was. Most people say they need a vacation from their vacation. Not the case. I am completely refreshed. Ready to get back to "normal life."
I stayed active by either doing PiYo on the beach or running. However I ate whatever I wanted, and it was great. I haven't stepped on a scale, but I'm pretty sure I gained weight. I feel bloated and gross, and I'm okay with it. I enjoyed myself. I have complete confidence I can get back on track.
Last Friday was my last day of physical therapy. I left knowing my hamstring is strong enough to do plyo exercises and sprint again. At the beginning of this week everything seemed to come to a head. I got my junk food cravings out of my system, I'm refreshed from my ruts and I'm good to get my fitness back to where it once was. I start P90X3 October 6th to help me with that goal. Anyone who wants to join me by doing P90X3, P90X or the new P90 is welcome to.
I'm enthusiastic about my goals and the road I'm taking to reach them.
