I’m finally finishing the Fitness Vacation recap. I took last week off to rest and enjoy Thanksgiving with my family. We had a great week- hope you did too!
As I planned for this trip, I tried to incorporate as much variety for our workouts as possible. I absolutely love the resistance training up on the roof top with my gym equipment…
but what about out on the beach?
Well I wasn’t about to take my precious dumbbells out to the sand and sea,
so I had to be creative!
It only took a few minutes to put them together.
Here are some of the exercises we did:
SAND BAG SWINGS
Like the kettlebell, the SAND BAG provides uneven weight distribution:
- The muscles have to work together as one unit.
- The stabilizers muscles must do their job in order to control the bag.
- The CORE must be engaged in every move.
All good stuff!
We could feel it after the workout!
Now for a JOG ON THE BEACH.
So what’s next…
No question about it: LUNGES!!!
Oh, and why not?
Now we are just having fun.
Thank you, Kay, for taking this picture at the very second I look like I have it all under control! LOL
I love shells and always have – I still have my shell box full of beach memories from my childhood! I’m fascinated with the fact that each shell has a history. Every single one has its own unique story! What a miracle! I also feel a need to know what each one is. I realize that’s a big undertaking for me, but I found some help from iloveshelling.com
Being this was my first time to this area, I didn’t know what to expect, but I was really happy with our treasures! I think we may have found some extra special beach bling on the count of HURRICANE SANDY.
We found a whole sand dollar EVERY DAY we were there!
We also found the most beautiful Pin Shells! I couldn’t stop collecting them.
Ok, I think these are shark teeth or something????
If you know, PLEEEEASE tell me!
And what in the world is this???????
A local on the beach told me this was a dolphin vertebra. I saw an image online of a shark vertebra that looked like this.
What do you think?
The rest of my collection…
If you know about any of these shells, PLEASE share!
What did I find?
They are all so unique and beautiful.
This was the end of this awesome week,
but THE BEGINNING of a
NEW outlook. imagination. skill
towards a healthy life.
