Here he is again, our little mate HIIT! But honestly, HIIT can be done anywhere and anytime & it’s over and done with before you can convince yourself to stop anyway! I take my skipping rope away with me for HIIT too, but if you don’t have enough room in your case…Try this:
30 seconds on 30 seconds off – repeat X5
OR Swim /
Swimming is crazy good exercise! No pressure on your joints, but it does take a bit of practise mind – I’m useless at swimming but completed 50 lengths on my last day in Spain instead of HIIT – anything is better than nothing ey..
If you’re somewhere sunny there really is nothing better than fresh fruit & yoghurt in my opinion. The temptation might be to get out in the sun first thing but try not to ditch the brekkie all together … oh try and avoid endless amounts of toast & full English’s [esp if you’re in an all inclusive – choose wisely]
Shock I’m talking about water again .. for the sake of my regular readers I’m not even going to go into much detail – just DRINK MORE WATER.
Drink Smart /
A drink in the sun in front of your mind? That’s fine & you won’t be the first or last to love a drink in the sun [I swear the sun forces me to drink more alcohol] – choose wisely, a Vodka [double if you like], lime & soda will slash the amount of sugar your having compared to it’s sugary mates the cocktails.
Know it’s going to be a heavy night of amazing food & drink? Go steady throughout the day OR just make sure you get your workout in. Whatever fits you as a compromise to your goals & your holiday enjoyment.
Plan for the week you’re home /
Holiday’s get me so motivated to get to work/blogging/uni etc. I use my time on the sunbeds planning my week and my life. What I want & Why I want it [shock talking about that again] & really focusing back on my goals – I carry a notebook everywhere I go, just in case I think of something too.
& Reflect /
As well as planning my week ahead, I take time to reflect. Look at how far i’ve come or where i’ve made mistakes. I’m currently on my last day in Spain & i’m going to write a post about how I lost my mojo & found it again! Yipeee! – so watch this space.
Don’t be a fool – Protect dat skinnnn
Enjoy & Relax /
& lastly, just bloody relax & have a great time. If you’re like me, the when you’re at home you spend a lot of time worrying about things and being stressed. This is your time to chill, enjoy & rest & repair.
