During finals my schedule gets flipped around and it is hard to stay in the normal workout routine and have healthy meals prepared. I was unable to teach my circuit class yesterday, but I made time to fit in a quick arm workout and mini beach run with the pooch!
It was a great way to get out in the sun and take a break from all my studying!
Even if it is just for a quick 20 minutes it is really important for me to get a sweat on, ESPECIALLY when I am feeling bogged down/stressed! And every little bit helps!
It is really important to keep up consistency, even if its just a little bit everyday until you get that full chunk of time for a bigger workout, longer run, or even a fitness class!
Also during these times, staying on track with healthy foods is tough! Sunday was mother's day so I didn't have time to do my normal weekly food prep. So, yesterday I ended up making a quick stop at a local cafe to grab some healthy snacks:
I know it can be hard finding the healthier items when you are on the go or out to lunch, but just remember you always win with veggies!
Yesterday I grabbed a beet and endive salad along with a kale salad! I am not the biggest kale fan, but they used a yummy lemon dressing that added some great flavor along with some baked Parmesan shreds :)
I am so glad this week is coming to a close! I'm ready to get my summer on!
What are your summer plans?
