I am so ready for 4 days of rest 😱 I'll be headed out of town tomorrow and coming back Monday - I will try to get in some hiking and lots of walking, but that might be it. And that's ok! I used to be terrified to take off more than a day or two a week thinking I will lose all my 'gains' but that is simply not true. In reality, our bodies need time to rest and recover. When I travel, I do my best to make healthy choices when it comes to food in addition to a few indulgences. Some vacations are better than others, but that's life. It will never be perfect or go just as planned. So I choose to roll with the punches. Live in the moment, and not beat myself up for letting go a little. I know after I get back in town and back on track all the bloat and water retention will be gone. It's just a matter of knowing your body and trusting the process. Enjoy life. A few days away from the gym or your workouts is not going to kill you!
