SCUBA SAVVY


A leisurely boat dive in warm, tropical waters burns about 300 calories an hour, equivalent to hiking or a brisk walk.

As much as I love to sitting in a lounge chair all day on vacation and soaking up the sun, my over 40 body likes to remind me that I shouldn't stay idle for too long!!!  


HOWEVER...

WOULDN'T IT BE AWESOME IF PEOPLE WATCHING WAS CONSIDERED EXERCISE?!





If it was, the skin around my eyes would be super tight! (I'm just saying...) Unfortunately beach vacations, although glorious, (I am indeed a beach junkie), do heighten my awareness of what I may or may not be bringing to the beach that could potentially scare away small children and some nurse sharks.


Nothing motivates me to get to the gym more, than having to wear a bathing suit all day long! Recently on a family trip, we were in temperatures close to 100 degrees, and although we all love the warm weather, the intensity of it resulted in us utilizing only 1% of our suitcases. Wearing my bathing suit for breakfast, lunch and dinner the majority of days, was primarily the outfit of choice.
