For Linda Crowley, the first day of the year had always been set aside to work on new, positive beginnings and 1970 was no different. Her husband and children were by all accounts healthy and no one even considered the terrible thought that tragedy would strike before the day was over, and life as she had known it was gone.

It’s A Holiday Weekend – Be Kind To Yourself

It’s finally here! Summer on Cape Cod begins this weekend. For many of us that means college graduation parties, boating and backyard barbecues as we gather to remember those who gave their lives so we may live our lives.

As we take a moment to remember them, let’s consider what that means for our fitness lives. Everyday I get members coming back from vacation and the first thing they say to me is “I was very very bad with my food and drink.” That makes me sad. That so called “bad” food and drink on a vacation or a holiday weekend such as this should be a positive thing. Let’s consider why we workout in the first place. We workout to live, we don’t live to workout. We do what we do everyday here at Koko so we can all live our best lives. Living our best lives means going on vacation and enjoying holiday weekends with family and friends. It means eating fun food and having a reasonable cocktail or two. It means sitting on the beach for an afternoon enjoying a book and that bag of chips in your beach bag.

Remember- vacations and holiday weekends are NOT your everyday life. And as far as your fitness goes, THAT is what matters. What you do everyday is where your focus should be when trying to be fit and healthy. What you eat and drink and the time you spend sitting and relaxing on vacation or a holiday weekend is NOT going to derail your fitness. In fact, every single one of my members that spent the winter working out consistently and then went on vacation came back astounded that they didn’t gain a pound despite all their indulging. And that is why we workout. We spend 80% of the year taking really good care of our bodies so that they can withstand the 20% of the time we vacation and party.

And so, as another Memorial Day weekend goes by, take the time to remember, but be kind to yourself and enjoy your food, family and friends.

Have a safe and Happy Memorial Day weekend!
