I look at vacation as a time to focus on myself, my workouts, my rest, and my eating. My normal routine involves hour to hour scheduling and fitting in my workout when I can and getting home as fast as possible to walk the dog. My plan on vacation is to work on when I wake up (without an alarm) and take my time, even including a 15 minute post workout stretch session.
In the past I have posted how to travel with healthy snacks.... here .
Workouts that involve no equipment so you can do them anywhere; here , here , here , and here . (Those are just my favorites)
Here are my latest tips for staying healthy while traveling...
To stay hydrated on the plane and on those long travel days I brought Nuun tablets with me to put in my water. The have some great flavors and it really helped me to continue to drink while traveling avoid dehydration.
Research gyms, yoga & Pilates studios before you travel. Some places offer one week passes or have good drop-in rates. I found an awesome early morning beach yoga class for our trip and I can't wait to give it a try, even the husband is coming!
Bring small equipment with you. Resistance bands are so small and compatible and a magic circle can easily fit at the bottom of your bag.
Plan to walk most places!
Pack snacks to bring with you during the day to avoid stopping for a special treat. My latest find are Honey Stinger Vanilla Waffles , they are crazy good!
Hand sanitizer is a must in your bag at all times!
What are your healthy travel tips?
