My life’s motto is: “enjoy everything in moderation”
I used to complain about school holiday as they get in the way of my fitness routines, but soon I realised I had to come up with alternative ways to keep my fitness up.
When we stay here in London, I usually try to fit my runs in the evenings when daddy is home from work. We also take both girls swimming at the weekends, so I always make sure daddy takes over and has them so I can swim at least 50 lengths.
We love spending school holiday by the sea, and last Xmas we were very lucky enough to escape for 10 days to Punta Cana, the Dominican Republic.
The sea was lovely and warm, and me and the girls spent lots of time swimming, splashing and playing water games. It all counts, I love resting and getting tanned, but cannot do so for a very long time, plus both girls keep me very busy.
Luckily I also packed my goggles and swam deep into the sea. It felt awesome, and I also managed to see some fish. Isabelle joined me too, but because of the waves she did not manage to swim very far, but she tried hard.
When booking our family holiday, we always make sure there is a kid’s club for children with plenty of activities, gym and also fitness classes on offer. What a better way to relax and unwind than on a yoga mat by the sea?
Walking is also another way how to keep fit, and can be done as a great family activity on your holiday!
I have tried many different tips on how to survive holiday and stick to my fitness routines, but it’s only been in past 3 years or so that I managed to master this.
The only way to do this is to keep on moving and working out, staying active. If I don’t have time for my run on the day I normally do, I make sure I go for a run the following day. The feeling after you finish your workout is unforgettable and you can also burn all the extra calories you consume on holiday!
Nothing can beat a lovely run along a stunning beach!
