Watersports = Killer Work Out

by Meghann on June 14, 2009

Today I rediscovered an awesome work out.


Hello buff arms thanks to knee boarding. πŸ˜‰ I always forget how tiring water sports are… I LOVE IT!

Water sports weren’t my only exercise of the day though, my Sister and I started the morning with my lakeside boot camp work out.


Here’s how it worked:

  • 10 suicides up and down the hill
  • 30 Butt Kicks
  • 30 Jump Ropes
  • 30 High Knees
  • 30 Jumping Jacks
  • 30 Criss Crosses
  • 50 Crunches
  • 10 Push ups
  • Repeat the circuit 5 times


My Mom & Aunt started the bootcamp with us but only made it through three rounds until they called it quits. I give major props for them for trying though.


After the boot camp I did two sets of walking lunges across the yard, various core work and then cooled down with some yoga to stretch everything out. We also took the doggies for a morning walk.

I was super excited for the Whole Wheat Pancakes my Dad prepared for breakfast.


I topped the pancakes with Plain Non-Fat Yogurt, Strawberries & Blueberries.

After breakfast it was boat time!


We had fun taking turns making fools of ourselves behind the boat.



When we were little we used to take a boat out and go knee boarding every summer. We used to kick butt doing 360s, jump, double teaming, but now I felt lucky just to be able to get up.



Trust me there were a lot of wipe outs!



Kelly was the star of the morning with her Wake Boarding and Water Sking Skills.


My breakfast didn’t really feel be up so I had a Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Odwalla Bar on the boat.


We pulled back up to the cabin for a quick lunch around noon.



I had a Grilled Cheese, Spinach & Tomato Sandwich with Cauliflower, Chips & Salsa.


The sammie really hit the spot. πŸ™‚


Of course after lunch there was more boat action.



Who knew Kelly knows how to drive a boat?


After my turn I had an orange slice.


The weather started to turn cloudy so we called it quits for the day. I was looking forward to a nice cold Apple to crunch on.


I had wonderful plans to take full advantage of the beautiful deck for the remainder of this afternoon with a good book. Have I said how much I love vacations yet?

Your vacation looks awesome. I’ve never done any water sports really. Except for tubing in a lazy river at a water park. In my eyes, that counts πŸ˜‰

OMG I am SO jealous! I LOVE watersports but since I live in NYC I rarely get to partake in them. Have an amazing vacay!

That seems like my idea of a perfect holiday! I wish there were more things like that to do in the UK…but even if there was it’d probably just rain the whole time!
Oh Meghann, do you have any nice, single friends so I can get married and move to America? Hehe.

I’m so impressed with your boot camp action. I can honestly say I never would dream of doing that on vacation, but now you’ve got me thinking. I think at the blogger meetup you should lead a bootcamp session!!!
