Usually, I am a workout-aholic. I go to the gym pretty much every day (I'll share my own fitness story someday), and I work out hard while I'm there. I take my fitness pretty seriously.
I really, really need those endorphins to flow or I don't feel quite . . . complete.
While I was on my trip to Alaska . . . which happened to be on a small luxury cruise ship . . . I tried to keep as active as I possibly could. Tom and I walked a lot each day. We worked out on the ship whenever possible. We went on a couple of higher-intensity treks (hiking on a glacier, for example, or kayaking around islands).
I did more of this . . .
than usual. (Let's just say . . . we used our premium drinks package more than we used the gym . . . )
I arrived back home craving a diet cleanse, a massage, and a good, hard workout!
So. I'm back at it. And feeling better already.
But it got me thinking -- how do YOU get yourself back on track after a break? As in . . . after a vacation or an injury or being sick or, well, maybe a heat wave?
What works for you?
