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.

haha I know what you mean about having to get out the door before anyone else. I’m the same way when we go away with my husband’s family. I have to wake up at the crack of dawn to workout, otherwise I get sucked into sitting…for the entire day.
perfect workout Jess!! whenever I go away, I always still exercise because it keeps me sane, and I usually throw together a plyo, body weight circuit just like this!!! loveit! enjoy your rum :)
I’m so glad we’re not the only ones who did the DQ trip! We used to bike up to dairy queen!

Rum should be the one word to sum up a vacation. Love it!
Will this workout counteract the effects of bacon blondies? I don’t like running either, which is why I sprint. Get it over with ASAP, I say. Enjoy your beach time!
Love this workout- and that it’s a solid mix of my favs- I’m going to take this moment to raise the roof for burpees.. woop!
This is really a great vacation workout – man, you have so many great workouts for so many different situations! :D
Well, I love that you dont stop exercising just because its vacation time. You have got the right perspective on life girl!
The 15-mile boardwalk bike ride + Dairy Queen snack is really all you need in life. Ice cream and bike riding do go hand in hand…
Loving this section of the blog Jessica! I’m sad I’ve totally overlooked it in the past. That will not be the case anymore :D!
I LOVE doing things like this at the beach and will be doing something similar next week. I already can’t wait. Not quite as much as I can’t wait for the food though. LOL
I only stay at hotels with a fitness room. It’s the only way I’ll work out on vacation.
Enjoy your vacation, Jessica! I hope you’re taking plenty of naps in between the DQ trips. :)
What a great workout! I bet you were sandy after that one!! :)
