My Vacation Goals

I had a 4-miler on the schedule today, but I'm currently down and out with flu-like symptoms. Fever, body aches, iffy tummy... Ugh. Perhaps a blessing in disguise though since I was just describing how overworked and exhausted I've been feeling lately. I really needed an extra rest day and being sick is probably the only way I would actually take it! Here's hoping I'll be closer to 100% by tomorrow - and more importantly by Sunday when we leave for our vacation!

Speaking of vacation, as I mentioned yesterday, i have set some goals for myself for vacation. Here they are:

1) Sleep. A lot. This one is a little dependent on kiddos sleeping well too, but I really need to catch up on some sleep! I plan to get to bed at a decent time every night and stay in bed as long as possible. I want to come back feeling refreshed and re-energized.

2) Run. Just enough. I want to keep up with my training, but not be obsessive about it. I want to run and enjoy it! Run without feeling rushed or worried about pace - just take in the scenery.

3) Don't think about work. At all. I'm not going to lie - this one is going to be tough for me, for a variety of reasons. But I'm going to give my best effort not to check emails and not to think about (or worry about) what might be going on while I'm out of the office.

4) Enjoy good food and wine. Sounds easy enough, right? Sadly, easier said than done for me most of the time, as a habitual calorie counter. I'm going to try and let loose. I certainly don't plan on gorging myself, but I definitely want to be able to enjoy some good local food and even better wine - guilt free. Who knows, I may get really crazy and not log into my MyPlate app at all! (said with fingers crossed behind my back...)

5) Read a few chapters of my personal trainer study materials. This is the only real "accomplishment" on my list. I'm definitely not going to stress about it, but I would like to capitalize on the lack of other obligations for the week and read a few chapters while the girls are napping.

6) Enjoy my family. Last but certainly not least. I want to just enjoy every minute of being with my family. Be 100% present for everything we do - everything from making breakfast to going to the beach. This is our first real family vacation, and I want to make the most of our time together.

And there you have it! Counting down the days to Savannah...
