If you have gut health issues you know that traveling can be a doozy. I’ve been lucky enough to travel quite a bit in my life and I’ve learned to LOVE it, but I’ve always felt a bit of an apprehension each time I think of planning a trip or getaway.
Where do I even begin?! The Good Fest weekend was so, so beyond amazing; I can honestly say it was probably the best weekend of my life and for so many reasons. One being the fact that I was so present. Being present isn't my specialty ya'll, but this weekend it was.
I didn’t even know a single month could fly by so quickly. Going into this past month’s trip I was nervous. VERY nervous (read more about why on my post about travel anxiety). But I now realize all of that worry was unnecessary.
This month away from a gym has proven to be such a blessing. Don’t get me wrong, I’m beyond excited to get back into my home-gym in a couple of days, but I’m so thankful for this month-long journey experimenting with bodyweight and resistance band training.
Two weeks ago I arrived in Luxembourg and it has truly been a trip of a lifetime so far.
Remember in my travel anxiety post how I talked about me being a bad traveler? Well, this trip has helped me prove to myself that I’m not such a bad traveler after all. I just didn’t know what kind of traveler I was before.
Week one in Luxembourg is complete and I can’t get over how amazing this trip has already been. I honestly don’t know how I’m going to say goodbye to this beautiful place. I transitioned a lot quicker than I thought I would and I already feel at home here.
It’s my first full day in beautiful Luxembourg and so far I’m loving it! There have been a few bumps in the road – I thought my dinner last night had dairy after I had eaten a bunch of it and I had a momentary panic attack.
I can hardly believe that I embark on a month-long journey in Luxembourg NEXT FRIDAY!!! It’s finally hit me as I’ve been preparing and packing like crazy. And as the travel anxiety starts to hit…
As far as I can remember, family vacations have always been extremely active. I know a lot of people think of lounging around when they think of vacation, but my family just doesn't roll that way (and thank God for that!). I love working out on vacation because it makes me feel GOOD, not because I feel like I have to.
I truly don’t think health is something to take a vacation from; it’s a lifestyle and should go with you everywhere. But, with that said, there’s no need to spend hours slaving away in the hotel gym when you could be exploring a new city.
