FITting it in during Vacation

Hello to all my loyal followers from Newport Beach, CA! I love vacationing here with my family and we do it quite often. Today we will be headed to the beach to fly a kite. It is quite chilly here, but the kids won't know any different.

Spring break is coming up for many of us or you are in the midst of spring break. Whether you are traveling or staying home, the schedule is different and you still have to FIT it in.

Yesterday I went to map my run and found a run someone else had mapped out exactly where we are staying. I enjoy a nice 2 miles run up and down hills. What a great workout! I am planning on doing the same thing today and perhaps doing 2 laps. Breathing in the fresh salt air as I see the ocean sparkling in the sun in the distance. It doesn't get much better than that!

Even when you are on vacation it is important to think ahead about how you are going to FIT it in. If you get up early, keep on doing it. Keeping something that resembles your schedule at home will ensure you don't fall off the FITness wagon.

Bring equipment you may need to FIT in your workout, bikes, tennis raquets, or even a jump rope if that's all you are able to fit in. A jump rope can provide an amazing workout! This week we brought all the above mentioned equipment, plus snorkeling gear, boogie boards, and running shoes. There is a FITness center where we are staying, but why go indoors when you are at the beach?

Remember that when you are in the car driving to your destination remember to do your isometric exercises in the car. Make it a family game to pass some of the time. It will keep the kids entertained and help you FIT it in.

Now your job is to do 3 sets of 15 push-ups and 3 sets of 10 crunches. Pick any style of push-up or ab exercise, just FIT it in today.
