The only solace I've found has been in exercising. It's been my refuge.
I'm going to the beach next weekend, so that has also motivated me to exercise. I wouldn't say I'm 100% bikini ready, but I don't think the whales will be singing "we are family" too loudly. I'd call that a win.
Here's how I did this week:
Friday: 3 miles - walking
Saturday: 2 miles - walking + 75 minutes hot yoga
Monday: 2.5 miles - walking
Tuesday: 2.5 miles - walking
Wednesday: 2 miles walking - walking + 75 minutes hot yoga
Weekly Total Miles: 12 miles
Total Miles: 23
Miles to Go: 7
One thing I've found that really helps me is wearing a pedometer. I check it periodically during the day and that motivates me to either (1) keep up the good work or (2) get my tail moving! Plus, we've had just wonderful weather the last week or so, and I have just loved getting outside and walking.
I've done great so far, but I'm traveling a lot over the next couple of weeks, so I hope I can find time to exercise while I'm gone.
How do you stay healthy and active while traveling? I need some tips!
