Focus T25 Workout Review Spring Break

This is my Focus T25 Workout Review during Spring Break : In my last blog post I mentioned that I was going on a Spring Break vacation with my family to Disney World.  It was going to be action-packed vacation for a week and visiting 5 theme parks in a row.  The itinerary was to fly on Sunday and check into our hotel.  Monday we were visiting the Magic Kingdom, Tuesday was Typhoon Lagoon, Wednesday the Animal Kingdom, Thursday was Epcot Center, Friday was Blizzard Beach and Saturday we were traveling back.  I packed my workout clothes and my T25 workout DVD’s and a portable DVD player.  I was set, ready to continue my fitness workouts even while on vacation.

We had a small hotel room that a living space that I could use to workout on and a big screen TV.  Yup!  I had a solid plan and the means to make it happen.  Well, things didn’t go accordingly to plan.  I’ll share below…

So my original plans to work out the way I originally intended.  Sunday was my rest day according to the calendar so I wasn’t planning to workout.  Good thing I didn’t because we woke up at 3am to catch a 6am flight out of LAX.  The trip took us about 7 hours total which included a stop in Tennessee.  By the time we got our rental car, checked into our hotel, we were simply exhausted.  We grabbed dinner and called it a night for our adventures the next morning.

Monday 8am we woke-up to go to the Disney World.  It’s like Disneyland, but on steroids.  Everything is much bigger and grander… the rides, the themepark, the design etc.  Heck!  Disney World even had it’s own Freeway system… that’s how massive it was.  I was simply amazed at how organized the parks were…  There were people directing traffic, shuttles that would pick you up, people taking pictures, etc.  Long story short, we were at the park from 9am-11pm.  By the end of the night, I couldn’t walk anymore, my legs were tired.  I estimated that I walked about 20 miles that day while carrying a water pack.  (Did I mention that it was 90 degrees with 50% humidity).  By the time I got home I could not simply workout.  But, I sure felt like I did a workout.  But, I will say that there would have been no way that I could have lasted that long hadn’t I worked out to T25 prior to going to the trip.  My legs felt pretty strong standing and walking all day up until about 9pm.

I won’t bore you with all the details of the trip, but basically I couldn’t physically add a workout in even if I wanted to.  Doing 5 theme parks in a row and walking all day, everyday was a physical feat in itself.  I felt like I deserved a medal or something for accomplishing something so insane.  Everyday I stretched my legs, ate bananas, and took ibuprofen and iced my legs just to be able to make it through the next day.  If I could have done it all over again I wouldn’t have booked so many theme parks in a row.  I definitely needed a break in between.

I think that I probably walked about 60-80 miles throughout the entire trip.  It was an amazing family trip don’t get me wrong, but it definitely takes it’s toll physically on you.  I ate like I was on vacation, but I did split all my meals with my family.  Thus, we shared a burger, shared ice-cream, fries, funnel cake, etc.  I didn’t gain weight or lose weight because I think whatever I consumed I burned off pretty quickly.

I never originally planned this T25 journey to last exactly 60 days, but rather to incorporate it into my daily lifestyle.  My goal was to become more fit and tone-up.  I knew that it would be challenging to stick to the T25 workout schedule exactly especially since I have a full-time business and family.  But, I’m excited to get back on track tomorrow with the workout routines.

    Are you still going to progress through T25? I really enjoyed reading your journey.
    If not on daily basis maybe you will make updates from time to time?
