Well, I do, I guess. Perhaps more accurately, I think about building a beach body every November. Sometimes I kick up my workout routine and eat a little healthier but sometimes I don’t. This year I am going to have a plan- I just don’t know what it is yet. Hey, I still have one more day to get ready, right? It’s not November yet.
Let me tell you why I am thinking about a beach body in November when most of our country is packing away their summer suits. I have a wild and wonderful family that makes an annual trek south. We spend a couple of weeks on the beach sun bathing, eating, shopping, eating, celebrating, eating…you get the point. We take walks in the morning and drink wine at sunset. It’s pretty fabulous. However, by the end of it, I typically feel exhausted and ready to get home to detox.
This year I am going to pre-empt all of those holiday treats, beachside snacks and lost hours of sleep by preparing before we go. I want to feel strong and healthy going into vacation this year. Vacationing with forty people requires a lot of energy. It actually feels a little like an endurance event. So, I have some work to do.
I should also say that my version of a beach body looks a lot less like a magazine these days. A healthy beautiful body to me isn’t super thin and airbrushed to perfection. The beach body I want will allow me to take long walks with my awesome cousins and chase my little ones into the waves. The beach body I am working on will help me stay up past eight at night. I want to be awake so I can share conversations with some of the people I love most in this world.
I will keep you posted on my plan and progress.
As always, thanks for coming. I would love to hear from you. Message me here and I will get back to you as soon as I can.
