august: beach body challenge

i can proudly say i worked out 90% of the July days! i really do prefer the measurable disciplines, my accountability feels more sustainable. i exercised 27/31 days. i was so dedicated, southern gent & i even worked out on vacation. i would highly recommend it. i once thought vacation was about laziness and gluttony. there is definitely plenty of room to be unstructured on a vacation, however, we loved the extra hop-in-our-step workouts gave us. we may have followed gym time with cocktails and nachos, but we earned them.

i originally stated 'at least one mile a day' to be conservative, but in fact i ran 2 miles daily and often ran sets of stairs post run. after one month, i feel markedly stronger than i have in some time. this discipline is certainly not ending with the close of july. i want to add strength training to my runs. i found this guide online. it's a bit intimidating, bring on the sore. i hope you follow along with me.

here is a sneak peek into our recent trip to Cabo San Lucas:
