John’s Wellness Journey – Week 6

Hola Mi Amigos!!!!  I am officially back from Cancun and I could not be happier with the week off.   It is very difficult to stay focused at an all-inclusive resort but I did it the best that I could.  I approached this vacation as to get as much exercise as possible and still take time to enjoy paradise.  I woke up every morning and took a long brisk walk on the beach with my wife and it was fantastic.  We walked down to the end of the strip and it was measured as a 4 mile walk.  The gym was great as well.  My body was very sore and nothing was more refreshing than a nice dip in the infinity pool.  There my family and I did a ton of swimming.  Each day we participated in many activities provided by the resort.  Water polo, water basketball, water volleyball and water aerobics for 1 hour every day were harder workouts than you would expect.  I was really proud of myself for making a conscious effort to stay on track while on vacation.  Maria Hicks (My Fitness Coach here at Kapnick) and I had a long talk before vacation about staying active and enjoying myself at the same time.  Great advice Maria!!!  I worked hard and had a blast and came home 4.0 pounds lighter than when I left.  It is harder to get back into the swing of things but will keep plugging away.  My focus is to get below 300 as a short-term personal goal.  I can do it, I know I can.   The Journey continues……….stay tuned.

    Great job, John! 4 pound loss is amazing on vacation! When I coach people who are going on vacation… I recommend trying to maintain their weight. Losing weight shows dedication and determination – you enjoyed yourself and kept active!!
