Some people in my life tell me I am selfish for taking time for workouts most days of the week.
This picture right here is proof that is not the case.
- Yes, I brought my kettlebells on vacation.
- Yes, I chose to do some snatches while my kids were (happily) playing around me.
- and yes, my 2 year old decided to sit down, watch, and then IMITATE my movement with his tiny arm and seashell.
This made my heart so happy.
My kids are growing up with the understanding that exercise is important for our bodies and minds. If you think that makes me selfish, you should probably sit down and take a close look at your own life. I’m slowly learning to tune out the naysayers in my life and do what I know is right. I will no longer feel guilty for taking care of myself and setting a good example for my kids.
My vacation workouts included a lot of short (but intense) circuits. Jump roping, squat jumps, burpees, etc. I set a timer for 15 minutes and just run through as many circuits as possible.
Just enough to get the endorphins running and make my body feel good.
With trainers as cute as these, how could you resist? :)
What is your favorite vacation workout?
