Spring Break! Have you had yours yet? Well, you’re probably one of the many who do not get to enjoy a spring break anymore. You may look back on your college years and relive the glory days of beach, beer/booze, and whatever else was going on. Do you miss those days? I guess the only other way to get a spring break would be if you work for a school district or if you’re taking classes at a university. Not a bad gig, then! I’m currently on a spring break of my own, although jeez the break on this blog has been way too long. It turns out teaching & training gets a bit in the way of my ‘free’ time. As a Wisconsinite, I’ve been a part of the one of the worst winters in the history of this state. I’m sure all of you fellow locals can agree. It. Was. Freezing. When it wasn’t freezing, it was snowing an inch or two here or there; enough to annoy you and turn the roads to crap. Fortunately, it appears as if spring is on its way. Easter Sunday brought highs in the mid 70’s, although it’s dipping back down in the 40’s again. Enter my Spring Break….now! In roughly 12 hours, I will be boarding a flight for Austin, Texas. 88, 91, 91, and 93. That is what weather.com is telling me for Austin throughout the next few days. YES. Thank you very much. I am beyond excited to head south and relax, soak in the sun, and visit with friends. Plenty of activities are planned – touristy stuff, good eats, drinks, and even some workouts. I repeat, and even some workouts. This all leads me to the topic of this post. Vacation workouts. How do you feel about them? Have you bothered to try working out on vacation? If you’re someone who is trying to reach your goals, specifically weight loss, I highly suggest fitting in some exercise somewhere! 10 Ways to Workout on Vacation The article is a quick read and gives some basic tips to squeeze in those workouts. I find this to be helpful, encouraging, and motivating, especially if you have been kicking ass at the gym and following a steady routine. Why waste it and fall back into a rut? Most people end up messing up their diets on vacation, which is understandable. This isn’t a post to preach about healthy eating on vacation. What this is about is to do your best to continue working towards your goals and getting in a little workout. There is probably a great chance you can do it! For me, I’ve already packed my workout stuff. I already have a plan of what days I’ll be getting in exercise. Luckily, the people I am staying with are active, as most from Austin are, which is great! We have already discussed running in and around a beautiful park/lake. I’m going to desperately try to go hiking one of the days as well. Exercising outdoors is so awesome. With all that said, I hope April has been kind to you, and that you had a wonderful Easter. Keep at it, Patrick
