Finding Balance in Belize with CALIA by Carrie Underwood
When I decided to take on my month-long “sweating for the wedding” challenge, I specifically chose to end the challenge the day I left for Belize instead of on my actual wedding day — thinking I wouldn’t want to work out on vacation.
However, choosing the goal of exercising daily — instead of something more intense like “losing x lbs” — proved to be habit-forming in a positive way, and something I simply didn’t want to give up when I landed on the island.
I found that including a fun, fitness activity in my day provided me with that healthy balance I’ve always been looking for, unlike when exercise felt forced.
So everyday in Belize, I continued to enjoy some form of endorphin-boosting exercise.
From kayaking to volleyball to swimming, snorkeling, and bike riding, each day I naturally worked in an athletic activity — not because I felt like I had to, but because I wanted to.
Finding balance in life between exercise and other daily activities is an overarching message of music superstar Carrie Underwood’s new fitness line, CALIA by Carrie Underwood.
I was asked to test drive her adorable new activewear, and after hearing their message of balance and “staying the path” (rather than killing yourself for weight loss), it made perfect sense for me to incorporate this cool, floral gear into my island getaway.
I tried out their pretty pink tank top and printed capris for an easy jog and light yoga sesh on my first morning on Ambergris Caye.
The material is super comfortable and breathable – essential in the humid Caribbean weather.
While I absolutely love the look and feel of CALIA, what I like the most (as I mentioned before) is the message behind the brand, something Carrie Underwood exemplifies.
A happy, healthy life means being a balanced babe, not a slave to extremes.
I think the most important thing when it comes to health and fitness is that you find what is right for you and you stick with it. You don’t overexert yourself. You don’t go all out for a week and then fall off the wagon the next. You find balance and you stay the path.
My motto is: the “best” fitness or diet plan is the one that works for you.
