Real-Life Benefits of AbsoluteFIT: Disneyland and California Adventure

via – Lydia M., AbsoluteFIT Blogger at AVAC®

I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again: You gotta be fit to get the most out of the Happiest Place on Earth.

I don’t know how other families do their vacations in the Mouse’s House, but us? We’ve got the place dialed in — we start at the Extra Magic Hour every morning (meaning we’re through the gates at 7:00 a.m.), my husband uses the Disney app to plan out our moves (with the early start and MaxPass, we rode Radiator Springs Racers four times before 8:30 one morning, and we never waited more than ten minutes in line for *anything*), and we go go go — crisscrossing the various Lands, hopping parks as necessary, stopping only for rides and churros.

Look at the cover photo — that’s my Apple watch at bedtime, four days in a row. We cover some distance, don’t we? The kids’re young, they can handle it — but this forty-three-year-old lady has to plan ahead to be able to keep up, and that’s where AbsoluteFIT comes in: stairs, distances, heat, climbing in and out of rides, occasionally carrying a five-year-old like a sack of writhing potatoes …

And here’s me, 15 pounds lighter than the same point last year, ready to do another day:

Cars Land: Early Start!

Wanna get ready for your next adventure? Meet me in the AbsoluteFIT studio!

If you need something from her, try bribing her with good coffee or cold beer; odds are, she wants one or the other of those right now.
