Weekly Workout Schedule – Travel Edition

My workout routine this week was a little weird because I traveled to Nashville, TN for a (fantastic) bachelorette party over the weekend. I had a rest day scheduled for Monday that I really needed and, even though it was tempting to skip it and get my butt to the gym as much as possible before a weekend of traveling, eating and drinking, I took the day off and, after about 10 days without a rest day, it was definitely the right call. I didn’t get any exercise in on Friday and I only got a small, short workout in on Saturday, but I didn’t beat myself up about it. I totally indulged in mimosas and appetizers (I don’t say no to sweet potato fries when I’m in the Southeast, ok?), but I controlled my portions, drank a bunch of water, and danced my booty off to country music both nights, which means I won’t have to struggle too much to get back into my routine at the gym (or in the kitchen).

Realistically, no matter how dedicated you are to your fitness regimen, there’s gonna be days or weeks where ya just can’t get to the gym as much as you’d like, or cook the food you wanna cook. I’ve found that, during those periods of time, it’s important for me to maintain the good habits that I’ve built over the last year instead of slippery-sloping simply because I can’t stick to my exact routine. In fact, one of the best habits I’ve cultivated on my fitness journey has been to adapt when necessary, so that I don’t end up freaking out or blowing my diet simply because I’m busy or not at home. It might sound cliché, but this is a lifestyle, y’all, which means the arc of time I’m workin’ with is pretty damn long – a couple of days does not my health and fitness plan make or break: I’m here for a long time and a good time, so bring on the hotel workouts and the mimosa bar.
