Aloooo-haaaaaaa! or: The Price of Indolence

After nearly two weeks of doing nothing but sitting on a beach, drinking beer, I needed Marcy to kick my behind — and boy, did she!

I’m back from heaven, aka the Kohala coast of the Big Island, where I’ve just spent nearly two weeks with my family, doing almost nothing but sitting on the beach in a cabana, drinking Longboards and/or mai tais. Of course I did a lot of splashing in knee-high waves with the three-year-old and swimming and floating with the seven-year-old, plus SUP’ing (stand-up paddleboarding) and kayaking a couple of times while my husband built sand castles with the kids, but overall it was one of the most gloriously lazy vacations I’ve ever had.

And by the time we had unpacked in good old SJC, I was more than ready to return to the studio. Absolute FIT will do that to ya — there’s only so much torpor you can handle after you get used to working out like this.

So today, I jumped back in with both feet: Marcy’s 10:15 Core/Cardio session in the Pilates room. It was awesome! And typical of Marcy, it was also an absolute butt-kicking — even for the people who hadn’t been beach-bummin’ it for two weeks. I’m so glad I went!

These are just two of the many things AbsoluteFIT has done for me: 1) the body confidence to go about in a bikini, sans apologetic cover-up, at my age, and 2) the way my kids see me right after a workout: sweaty, smiling, and feeling strong. Aloha!
