It's 4am as I am writing this - just back from an AMAZING time in Sri Lanka but suffering from jetlag!
When I blogged last week about getting fit with Next and Davina MCCall I vowed to run 3x a week with a goal of running 10k in May 2012. I have just spent the last 8 days in Sri Lanka with HAW so the big question is, was I able to schedule my runs?!
The answer sadly is no as it was just too hot to be running and I didn't have the inspiration to set the alarm to get up for an early morning run along the beach, BUT (you knew there would be a "but" hey ;-) I did exercise in some way, shape or form EVERY DAY so that more than makes up for it in my book!
The hotel we were staying in had a fitness suite that thankfully had A/C so after breakfast on 2 mornings I went for a gentle jog for 20 minutes and then spent 10 minutes lifting weights for toning, I know it's not exactly a full on workout, but baby steps and all that jazz.
However, what I did do everyday was some form of exercise from body boarding to swimming to walking on he beach at sunset (although we did this with a bottle of beer in hand I have to say) but the combination of good, fresh seafood and enjoyable, everyday exercise has meant that I have come back from holiday 4lbs lighter! This has NEVER happened to me before and I am thrilled! Now all I need to do is keep that momentum going!
