What a lovely summer it’s been. Hawaii. BlogFest. Tahoe. I’m possibly the luckiest person on the planet to have spent my summer in all these amazing places and with all these incredible people.
We’re winding down our last couple days in Tahoe, before heading to Portland to visit the Flex & Flow team, and I’ll FINALLY get to see the studio in action! I’m so excited I can barely stand it. I was there back in December, when the studio was just an empty box in need of paint, floors, and some major TLC, and I was a super pregnant person waddling through Home Depot and Lumber Liquidators.
I’m trying to take advantage of our last few days in Tahoe to their fullest extent. What I’ve so appreciated about being here in the summer is that it gave me a chance to build up my fitness in a low stress, let’s-get-outside way.
My workouts haven’t been activities I’d normally call workouts. There are no machines, no instructors, no tracking miles or steps or calories or minutes.
It’s been a summer of hiking, of swimming, and morning yoga just because it feels good.
It’s my kind of #weirdworkout. After so many months of feeling out of whack post-baby, it’s beyond incredible to feel like myself again.
Plus, getting Mackenzie out into nature daily feels like bonus points in the mom column.
She goes nuts for the trees, the water, and the dogs we spy on the beach or on our hikes. Hearing her happy squeals are an extra reward on top of the endorphins.
I’m scheming how to pack my weird workout and take it back to Austin. I’m going to miss all this outdoor time and nature. And I’d much rather get outside with my family and just enjoy moving and sweating without focusing on hitting some magic number of miles, minutes, etc.
I like just moving for the pure joy of moving. I think that counts as weird in our quantified-self age?
But that’s my #weirdworkout, and I love it.
