Weigh in/ Workout Wednesday 6-26

Oh man, only 3 more days till I leave for vacation! I am super excited for all the ladies blogging for you next week! I think something everyone worries about going on vacation is gaining back weight, staying in control, etc. The good news is, everyone we are traveling with KNOWS I am living a healthy lifestyle, so they will definitely keep me in check. I think that accountability is huge all the time, but especially in the face of vacation temptation.

As always, I am linking up with:

Pretty Strong Medicine


My weight for this week is 246.0. I think I mentioned it last week, I am weighing on Friday, and posting it on Wednesday, so technically thats what I weighed last Friday lol.

Today for Workout Wednesday, I wanted to share my ideas for staying fit on vacation. I wont have access to a gym, so I am going to have to get creative. I have two things that will keep me going. Well two apps really.

1. Rip deck, which I have written about a lot. I have a lot of favorite things about this workout, but one of my most favorite things is that I can do it and take it ANYWHERE. I can do it in a hotel room, I can do it in my Aunt's living room, I don't have to have anything to do it besides my phone and my body. I love that.

2. Zombies 5K running app. I was a little bored with C25K training (not that it wasn't hard, just that it lacked, well,  Zombies. ) so I bought this app and so far I LOVE it. It keeps me entertained the whole time so I don't even think about the running. The story is engaging and the workouts are great.

It gets hot in Tucson and Oceanside so I plan on running early in the morning :D 

How do you stay motivated and active on vacation?

  1. I'm trying not to worry so much about my vacation next week. But it's not going to be easy. Luckly we are staying at a state park in a cabin, so there will be plenty of trails to walk. Also you have to walk up two flights of stairs to get to the cabin, so maybe all those stairs will help burn some extra calories. (Just hoping it doesn't kill my bad knees) Anyways crossing my fingers that I can have a loss by next Wednesday and at least maintain for the following week. Hope you have a great time on your vacation!

  2. Have a blast on your vacation! I used the Zombies app for a little bit before I added C25K - loved it since I'm a Walking Dead fan :)

  3. Hi Jess! I'm so excited to be a guest blogger next week :) I recently went on vacation and here are a few tips I have that helped me out (I actually lost 3 pounds on our 1 week cruise).
    1. Treat yourself, but don't completely forget your diet. On my vacation if I wanted dessert I would make sure my dinner was healthy or if I wanted to eat an unhealthy dinner I'd skip dessert and make sure lunch and breakfast were healthy.

    2. Don't skip breakfast!

    3. Even if you don't do a formal workout, find something active to do. Jog on the beach, go on a long site-seeing walk, etc

    4. Pack your own snacks for the plane or car. Airport food is expensive and unhealthy and there aren't many healthy places to stop if you're driving. Packing your own stuff is a lifesaver!

    I hope you have a fabulous vacation :)


  4. Have a great vacation!

  5. Walk everywhere you can. I run when I can. Once when it was raining, I ran up and down in the stairwell of the Hotel. Not a soul disturbed me because everyone takes the elevator. I also travel with my yoga mat and do yoga. I often lose on vacation because we are so active.

  6. Vacation wreaks havoc with my diet usually but I'm really trying to learn that it doesn't have to. It's really up to us. I actually like working out on vacation because I have time and it's different. No gym makes it hard but it sounds like you are determined to do it anyways. Have fun!

  7. OK, SERIOUSLY so glad I read this post!!! I LOVE the Zombies running app and it works so well for me! I totally plan to get them and write about it!
