Traveling On Your Fitness Journey

By FitnessFrank

This can be difficult for many of us out there. Between going site seeing and trying new culture food. However, there are some healthy habits that can help you overcome these obstacles.

  • No gym, no weights, no problem! Here are a few basic bodyweight exercises that will help you stay on task with workouts: squats, pushups, lunges and planks.
  • As far as healthy eating while away, while at a restaurant customize your meal with healthy options. Just because you’re trying to stay healthy doesn’t mean you have to deprive yourself on the awesome food. The keyword is moderation. Don’t over eat but instead sample your vacation treats.
  • Treat a Day- how do you deny yourself tacos in Mexico or fish n chips in England and even a tasty croissant in France? Simple, you don’t. Just limit yourself to 1 treat a day. Substitute sauces or condiments with something healthier.
  • DRINK PLENTY OF WATER! Traveling can dehydrate you if you’re going to be in the sun more often than usual. Keep water with you everywhere.
  • Something that is difficult for a lot of us on a day to day basis is eat when you’re hungry and stop when you’re full. Don’t let the whole “I’m on vacation” mindset ruin your progress.

  1. It can be so hard to stay on track with healthy habits when on vacation, but I agree that thinking about moderating what you eat can be helpful. I’d add site-seeing to this list, too! Take walking tours or site-see on your own … easy way to add some exercise in a natural way!

    1. Glad you enjoyed the post! I believe it’s six glasses of liquid a day including liquid that’s part of your meal like soups not specifically water but I definitely understand what you’re getting at.

      1. Good point! If you are including the fluids from meals, then it would be 8 glasses of fluid each day. But as it is not possible to measure the quantity of fluids in your meals. So i recommended 6 glasses of water as you can easily get 2 glasses from meals.

        1. It’s still 6-8 glasses including meals but yeah drinking a certain amount of water everyday is definitely important even when not travelling. Especially if you’re older and your reflexes don’t work as well.
