Luckily, it’s not too hard to stay on my normal schedule and sneak in a workout and some work before everyone else is moving since I naturally wake up before the sun comes up.
Waking up early has its perks on the beach because as I set out to complete a beach workout this morning, I saw the sun rise. It was a romantic moment… with myself.
I absolutely loved the workout I did this morning and I basically made it up after I started running. I knew I wanted to run on the beach, but I wasn’t in the mood to only run and figured I could work a few circuits into my workout.
In the end my no-equipment-needed beach workout looked like this:
I felt a little funky doing the circuit as people walked by, but I’ll probably never see them again in my life. Chances are the beach walkers will never spot me again in the future and remember me as the squatting girl on the beach, so squat away, I did!
When I arrived back at the condo, I ate a banana with a small spoonful of almond butter, showered and snuck in an hour of work before everyone started moving about.
Then it was time for breakfast!
After snacking my way through breakfast yesterday, I was determined to sit down to an actual meal this morning and made myself French toast, topped with starfruit, plucked fresh from a tree near our condo.
We didn’t have any syrup on hand, but I didn’t really miss it. The starfruit was way better!
And now I’m off to conquer some work before a lunch out with my mom, grandma and sister.
Should be a fun day!
