Traveling and Staying Fit
Travelling is something I love to do, and is a big part of my families and I’s life. Between business trips, family vacations and our summer home in Greece, we are always traveling and exploring.
However, as we all know it can be difficult to stay on track and accountable to our workouts and diet.
Before I travel, I always come up with a plan of action for my workouts & nutrition. To begin, I figure out where I am staying and if I have access to a gym.
Then I plan out my workouts based on, how many days I can train, what muscles I want to target on those days, and if I will be incorporating cardio etc. If I don’t have access to a gym, I find a running route or a set of stairs.
I will also come up with a great outdoor plyometric workout consisting of jump squats, lunges, push ups and sit ups. I will also pack my resistant band and do a few resistant band workouts in the hotel room as back up.
I always take advantage of my destination and the location I am in. A run outdoors along the beach, a hike through the mountains or a brisk walk through a new city or town. This allows you to enjoy the beauty of wherever you might be.
I find that fist thing in the morning is the best time of the day for me to get my workout in. I typically keep it between 45 minutes to an hour, and then I am ready to start my day and enjoy whatever activities we have planed.
In terms of diet, I am a firm believer of everything in moderation.
Don’t forget you are on holidays, so enjoy it! Eat and drink some treats but don’t go overboard!
Keep your meals as healthy as possible and allow for a splurge here and there. Make healthier decisions when you can.
Chose water over sugary drinks and eat smaller meals throughout the day to help keep you from overeating.
I hope you find these tips helpful and have safe travels,
