A few weeks ago, Charlotte and I visited some family in Florida. We were there for nine days, anticipating many days of playing in the pool with Quinn, a few date nights, and regular workouts at the local CrossFit gym.
We spent the first night in the hospital with Quinn (he had norovirus – he’s fine) and subsequent nights of 2-3 hours of sleep and a cranky baby left us feeling anything but rested. #parentlife
We were still able to get a date night in (albeit the waitress was rushing to get us the check as he had a meltdown) and escaped to Orlando for a great evening hanging out with friends. But, if I were to look at my workout log for the week, we visited the gym twice and did one 10-minute at-home workout…all while consuming more wine and worse food than normal.
For a creature of routine (yep, that’s me), this can really difficult! I crave consistency, and with fitness such a big part of my life, being out of a workout routine leaves me, well, cranky.
I was chatting with a friend about this recently, and I was describing a “season” mindset that I’m doing my best to adopt. As the seasons literally change from fall to winter, I thought it might be helpful to share with all of you!
