Happy Friday, my friends! I’m away in sunny California spreading the FlapJacked love at Expo West all weekend. If you’re going to the expo, please come by and say hello! FlapJacked’s booth is number 5352, located in Hall E. The last event that I worked with FlapJacked was Fitness on the Rocks this past summer, which was a blast! I didn’t know at the time that I would go on to work for these two goofballs (and I say that lovingly) as their social media manager!
They really are the best.
I’ve been lucky enough to travel quite a bit over the last few years and really love to be able to take a few short vacations with Greg each year. When we were still living in Maryland, most of our vacations would be to Colorado, where we’d spend the week hiking, kayaking and cycling- which were all followed by enjoying lots of craft beer. I know that it’s okay to take a few days off from your normal exercise routine, but the truth is- I just feel much better and have much higher energy when exercise is included in my day. (That being said, I always take at least one rest day per week.)
When I have to travel somewhere, I know that I’m going to get in some exercise at some point each day. If I’m flying out early in the morning to my destination, that day usually ends up being a rest day. I like to exercise in the morning whether I’m at home or on the road, so that I can have the entire rest of the day to do everything else. Exercising while on vacation comes in many different forms for me and can include workouts in a hotel gym, body weight and cardio exercises in a hotel room or a run or hike outdoors (depending on where I am).
Here’s a few of the ways that I keep up with my exercise routine while traveling:
