Holidays are a time to relax and charge your batteries - and I won't tell you any different.
I was lucky enough to get away to Marbella last week for a golfing break. With my Dad, Brother and best pal.
Don't know how I managed to wangle that - but I'm sure Sarah will get her own back soon enough (there are already murmurings of Stobo Castle).
So the first few days were proper chill. Drinks at lunchtime and nice big dinners with deserts - with lot's of lounging in the sun when not golfing.
Then I started to get a bit restless and found myself actually wanting to exercise (the old me would never have wanted that).
Now the last thing you want to be is a holiday bore, who doesn't eat tasty ice creams and spends sunshine time indoors at a gym.
And of course, you're keeping your four wheels on when you're here.
But what you can do is sneak in some stealth exercise.
So we all went for a big long walk - albeit with a few bar stops along the way :-). And I spent a lot of time in the swimming pool. (You'll remember that swimming is the thing I have most problems with.)
So with lots of swimming and walking- and even some golf thrown in there - it ended up quite an active holiday.
That said, you need to listen to your body. If it needs some time completely off, it'll tell you. So do it.
And certainly don't beat yourself up about chilling out and having a lovely relaxing break.
You deserve it!
Till next time

PS: To get to the stage where your body will be iching for you to get up and move, you need to get there in the first place. Quickly and enjoyably. Remember to check out the SRF TriPlan - which'll tick all of your boxes. Ta.
