Happy March everyone! It certainly does feel like spring, and if you come in to train on a nice day, we're going to start out with a run around the park! As the weather gets nice, start to look for ways of staying active outdoors, whether it's a run or hike or outdoor bootcamp (hint, hint, look out for for those coming soon). On a recent trip to Miami with my longtime client and now close friend Jess, we found tons of ways to burn off any excess "vacation" calories by sweating it up outdoors. Riding the bikes around the waterfront was one way, doing pullups and handstands on South Beach's Muscle Beach was another. Showing off our acrobatics and dance moves on the beach made for an awesome photo shoot and a nice break from lying in the sun.
It was also fun finding ways to eat (and drink) healthfully on vacation. We stayed with my grandma who stocked the house with yogurts, cottage cheese, celery, blueberries and almonds. When we dined out, we ordered ceviches, salads topped with shrimp or salmon and egg white omelettes. When we decided to drink, we made our own vodka seltzers on the beach or asked for rum with muddled fruit and mint, no simple syrup. Still a mojito, just not a more sweet-o :) By the end of the trip we felt like we looked better in our bathing suits than when we started! The best active choice: Dancing til 3 at the club at the W Hotel. Not a bad way to burn calories...
