I’m so glad you guys liked the first course of our Taste of Europe menu yesterday! There are still 3 more courses to go, but today I want to shift gears back to Fitness. Why?
Because after a full month of NO workouts, I am ready to get back at it again!!
I know that 4 weeks off is too much time for many people, but I enjoy my recharging time every year to help get my thirst for healthy back. And now I am so ready to get back on the workout wagon and start eating healthier again!
During downtime of vacation, I finally took the time to lay out on my annual training plan (ATP), including the big mileage for each week through Ironman Cairns. Laying out Ironman training after a month of doing nothing is a great motivator. After a brief panicked moment, I remember I have 6 months until the big race. BUT – it IS time to start building that base again.
Monday: Go Meatless Today! You know this one was a stretch, right? I made my own personal challenge to eat TONS of fruits & veggies.
Tuesday: Send a card or handwritten note to a friend. I’m terrible at stuff like this, who wants a card?
Wednesday: Try a new workout today!
Thursday: Get up 15 minutes early to mediate and reflect. Great idea – and it will make my birthday even longer!
Friday: How many different colors can you eat today?
Saturday: Clean out your closet! Fill a bag with clothes to donate to Goodwill. This one may be trickier, since I’ve done this recently, but I’ll try!
My elf buddy for the first few weeks is Tess from Cross Country Cajun. I’m looking forward to supporting each other as we conquer these healthy goals! If you’re interested in Elf For Health, you can still sign up to join the next round in 2 weeks!
Questions for you:
- Do you take a yearly break from fitness?
- What’s your favorite way to get back on the wagon when you’ve been away from fitness for a while?
