Post-Vacation Workouts: How I got back on track

Hi there! I hope you all had a great weekend 🙂 A few weeks ago I wrote about how you can workout while you’re on vacation, which I think is an important thing to remember.  But, even though I stayed pretty active during my vacation, it wasn’t a piece of cake getting back into the full swing of things. Although I was excited to get back into the gym and lifting weights since all I had done was quickie bodyweight workouts for nearly 2 weeks by the time I got home, it was hard because nothing felt easy!

I knew to drop down on my weight and start slow (um, hello, I wanted to be able to walk the next day), but the workouts still felt so much harder than normal, and left me way more sore than usual- a very humbling experience, that’s for sure! But, having to take a step back in my fitness progress ended up being a nice change of pace and a nice reminder for how far I’ve come since I first started seriously working out. There were some things I did to help the transition from quickie, bodyweight workouts to more intense, strength training workouts and I wanted to share those with you since I’m sure I’m not the only one who has faced some struggles getting back into the groove after a bit of a workout hiatus.
