I've been on vacation (well, what passes for vacation in my family, which means all us crazies piling into my aunt's house in the middle of a cornfield to drink wine, swap stories around the campfire, and play bingo with the carnies at the fair across the alley) so workouts were a little hit and miss. In fact, I said I was going to take a break from exericse but come on, be serious. Did anyone really think I would do that? No, I took advantage of a late start getting on the road to eeek out a workout with Capt. Awesome before we left, and cranked out 90 minutes of cardio the next day while hubby and son slept!
The next morning I woke up thinking it would be a rest day. Every one in a while I try that whole "relaxation" think I keep hearing about. But by 3:00 I was itching for some activity so I hopped on my aunt's one-speed and biked to the local grocery store to pick up some 70% cacao chocolate for the s'mores and the ingredients for my Black Bean Turkey Burgers. It's a short trip and the weather was gorgeous, and by the time I got back I felt appropriately challenged. It was the perfect vacation workout - blood pumping but not sweating, challenged but not fatigued. It was a vacation from my vacation!
As I pulled back into the yard with my backpack full of groceries, my sister called out, "I thought you were taking a break this week!"
Ha! I just did! :)
