It seems like I have been traveling as much or more than I have been home this summer, so I have really had to change my perspective when it comes to "routine". I used get a little crabby if I couldn't make it to my class that I had planned or a workout with a friend, because my schedule has been all over the place I have had to adapt!
The last few weeks especially, I have received a ton of questions about how I workout when I am on the road. My big secret... I try and stay as active as possible. Truthfully, I feel like I am always more active when I am away because I want to explore. I also indulge more so know that it is important to get a few more steps in. I read something recently that said, "Count memories, not calories", and every time I felt a tad guilty eating that gelato, I told myself... F it - I am making memories here!
When we are traveling our routine looks a little something like this: Jonny and I usually have a light breakfast while we both catch up on work, then head out for a walk or run. When I am running in a new place I always surprise myself and can go so much farther because I don't know the route or trail and have less expectations when I start out. When we were in Aspen I took Stanley on a loop every morning that I found out was double the distance of my normal runs (and at altitude!).
During our trips Jonny and I try and get at least 30 minutes of cardio in, and more if we know that is going to be the only exercise that we get for the day. If we are going to be sightseeing all day long, we might attempt to walk ourselves through a yoga flow or follow a fun youtube video. My mom got me hooked on these dance videos (I am awful, but they are a blast), and Lacey showed me these when we were in Mexico which are great 15 minute workouts.
These are some shots from our ladies day out when Ali was in town. Lacey and I had so much fun showing her around to some of our favorite spots... and attempting cartwheels for the first time in probably 15 years. We are wearing the silkiest leggings I have ever put on. These Ultracor leggings are so soft that you feel like you are actually naked. I love the fun designs and each pair has built in underwear! They are a bit pricier than your average workout legging, but they definitely stand out!
