Who Works Out On Vacation?

Sorry for the lack of posts lately, but I’ve been one busy girl! Last week, my best friend Chelsea and I took our annual vacation to the Florida Keys. Along with the support from Amy, Chelsea has joined me on this life-changing journey of health and well-being. Which is going so well, that I almost had anxiety before we left when I realized there was not a fitness center at our first stop in Key Largo. Chelsea’s mom treated us to a day at a local fitness center located in Key Largo/Tavernier called Froggy’s Fitness. It was wonderful. I never thought to myself I would be a “runner” or “fitness fanatic” that works out on vacation, but now, I think the complete opposite and I absolutely love it.

It is such an invigorating feeling. I can feel it all over. My mental health, my body is changing for the better, I have more energy, and best of all my clothes look so much better on my body. I have lost 11lbs overall in 1 month. In concurrence with my running/working out, my eating habits have also changed drastically. Please remember, these are lifestyle changes, not a “diet” or “I’m just running until this blog is complete”. Are blogs ever complete? (hah) Anyways, I am on week seven and I feel fantastic.

The only discouraging part is my distance relative to my time. Which I know will gradually get better over time… how ironic. It is rather frustrating knowing I can only run a mile in 14 minutes, however, two weeks ago I had a 20 minute mile. So noticing the improvement has definitely kept me going. And we can’t forget the most important part…I can run a mile, without stopping. It might not be quickly, but I have short legs that still slightly touch…(hah). I have come so far in this journey and I owe the kick in the a** to Amy. Even though she says it’s all me…if it wasn’t for her, I wouldn’t be where I am today.

So thank you Amy, you rock.

And I will leave you with a few photos from our trip….

Overall, the best thing I can take from this is that I have successfully made the lifestyle change. I know this because I craved running while I was in the Keys…if that’s not a lifestyle change, then I don’t know what is!!
