Hi from Cabo! + Seeking Balance on Vacation

February 16, 2017

Saying hi to my friends from Cabo San Lucas, Mexico!


Checking in from a bit of a posting hiatus to say hey from my family vacation! We’re spending a week in Cabo and damn, this place is gorgeous. So far, the getaway has been a mix of different ways to relax and unwind: sleeping in, working out, dining on fresh seafood and staying hydrated via frozen cocktails.

Speaking of those frozen cocktails, I mentioned on Instagram that I often struggle to find balance. This goes for everyday life and even more so on vacation. I love to travel and am away many weekends out of the year. If I totally lose sight of my healthy habits when traveling, I’m in trouble because all of that time adds up.

For this vacation in particular, I’m away for a full week and making it even more challenging, we’re at all-inclusive resorts. It’s not so hard to say no to a $16 margarita, but it’s real tough saying no to a free one, right? One thing I remind myself is that just because it’s free, doesn’t mean you want it. This is true of free margaritas on vacation and for free snacks or pastries in the office.

Now I’m not saying that you should say no to all the fun and deliciousness, after all, part of vacation is letting loose and enjoying yourself. But it’s important to feel good as you enjoy yourself. For me, that means being active at least a little bit each day, whether that’s a long walk on the beach or a multi-mile training run.

While on vacation, I’m brainstorming the best ways to find a healthy balance and I’m going to share more with you next week. But for now, I’m going to enjoy the beautiful views from my beach chair. Stay tuned for more soon 😉
