Fitness Kick Start: Beach Workout.
The only exercise that takes place on this vacation is the obligatory 15-mile boardwalk bike ride that we have been doing for over 25 years, complete with a Dairy Queen stop at the end every single day. We have to reward all of that hard work, you know?
The only other ways I can describe fitness on our beach vacation is with the words zero, zilch, none, and nonexistent.
Oh, and one more word. . .rum. Just because.
So, the only way to get an effective workout is to wake up earlier and head out before everyone else. Mr. How Sweet will go for a run, but we all know how I feel about running. It belongs right up on that shelf next to veggies.
The I-Need-To-Do-Something-Because-I-Am-Such-A-Load-On-Vacation Workout
2 mile walk/jog/run (in my case, very slow walking)
20 alternating lunges
10 squat jumps
40 mountain climbers
60 second plank hold
10 minute stretch
Then take some time to de-stress. Because laying on the beach with a bottomless glass of Parrot Bay is extremely tiring.
