We actually spent all of last week at Disney World for vacation, so my workouts for the week looked a lot like this:
Loads and loads of park walking, plus some interludes of climbing and playing with O on the playgrounds:
The vacation week was good overall. I tried to do a good deed every day, mostly helping other parents struggling in the park. I had a good laugh with one mom as I helped her maneuver her tray full of lunch garbage into the garbage can while her children (definitely old enough to be helping according to her) looked on. I’m grateful that I got to build so many memories with my family like this one:
I’m also truthfully a little grateful that I’m back home and back to normal life. Vacation is lovely, but I’m craving getting back into a healthy routine before the holidays hit. NSV wise I had some wins on vacation, especially with not finishing things that weren’t great (here’s looking at you hot quinoa breakfast cereal) but I did finish lots of things that were good (it’s own NSV – yay for not restricting!) so getting back to healthy eating is a very good idea right now. I actually spent the plane ride home meal planning for this week and went shopping yesterday so I could start us all off on the right foot.
Yesterday, I checked off one of my goals for the month by doing a workout class at my gym – yoga. I confess I was a little distracted by the older gentlemen behind me who kept up a running narration of “God help me” and “Are you kidding me?” throughout the whole class. I’m guessing he’d been dragged there against his will.
I’m hoping to hit up another class of some type next weekend. Otherwise, this week I’m going to do a couple of strength workouts, run a little and see what kind of mood I’m in to keep moving on the other days. I’m going to join in with the Thankful Journey 5K (check it out here) because I like the idea of dedicating a run to gratitude this week, between a vacation and holiday chaos.
It’s a little crazy to think that we just got back from vacation and will be out of school and work again next week for Thanksgiving! Thank goodness this one is going to be a very busy one at work so I can at least get something done. We’re also scheduled to get our first snow this week, which is weirdly late for us but I confess I’m looking forward to it. The native Southerner in me always gets a little awed by the first snow. 🙂 At least until it snarls traffic!
I hope everyone has a great week!
