Getting Back Into Routines – The Most Frustrating Part About Going On Vacation

Ugh, this is the part of vacations that I absolutely loathe, getting back into the routine of your day to day life. It’s difficult and sometimes impossible to pick back up all the good habits you had formed before leaving, and getting back into the swing of things.

For instance, before leaving for Florida I was taking my vitamins every morning with 2-3 large glasses of water, this habit has never been picked back up. I haven’t taken a vitamin or drank my morning water since.
Who knows what good habit I have dropped because of this St Louis trip!

I did manage to workout every day for a month. I hit the gym every day except day 30/30 I did not actually hit a gym, but I did some serious Irish Dancing (over 3 hours) and I’m sorry, but that is a serious cardio session, sweating up a storm. So I’m counting it.

Yesterday was my first full day back and I’m moving and frankly still exhausted from the trip, so I took a rest day. Did not hit the gym or do anything physical.

I’m feeling incredibly guilty, as well as feeling scared that I’m falling out of love with working out and bodybuilding! Nooooo! So I have asked Prawn to force me to hit the gym today, I want to workout for an hour and I wont let myself slack off! I have a competition to train for. I can do it!

This is not a habit I’m willing to let go of.

I’m having a rough time with my water, have not been drinking enough, and for the past 2 days I have gotten back in the habit of eating dairy and too much fruit. What has gotten into me!?

So today, clean eating, working out. I can do it.

Oh all that and did I mention? I have to move. Great. -.- Busy busy, that’s my life right now and It’s stressing me out and I’m not getting nearly enough sleep… ugh.

Do you have any tricks or tips to getting back in your old routines after leaving for a bit? Because I’m having a rough time.

I guess it takes a few days but if you put the effort in you can do it.

Starting full on training today, looking at 1 hour of weight training 4-5 days a week as well as serious clean eating as outlined in my bodybuilding post a few posts back (in April). I want to do this right, I don’t need the sweet foods I have been indulging in, even if they are ‘Dukan Friendly’ or allowed. I can do this, I just need to focus and be determined!

Oh Lord, I really need some motivation, I feel so gross and disappointed in myself.



  1. Don't put yourself down! You managed 30 days at the gym, and that's something you hadnt been able to stick to before. So, you rested for a day, but get back on it and go today! Put your vitamins where you can see them and gulp that water. I take mine every morning as they are next to my car keys. You can do it!
