What are your travel plans this summer? Do you know where the closest gym is to your destination? And, how will you keep a good diet?





It’s officially summer! You know what that means, vacations, vacations and more vacations. Are you prepared to say no to all the carbs you’ll without a doubt be coming across? This week we’ll go over some of the tips and tricks I use to stay on track even while traveling.

It won’t always be easy but it’ll always be worth it. When you return from your trip you won’t hate yourself for overdoing it with bad food choices. Does that mean you can’t eat at the restaurant everyone is going to for dinner? Of course not! Just mind what you eat, you’ll be happier with yourself and getting back into the routine on monday will be much easier.

Remember to keep your goals in front of your mind. Use the screensaver on your phone. Either a quote or photo that will motivate you to keep going on the right track.

Find the gym

Summer is when people are most careless about their diets. We’ve worked out all year for this right? Or is that the winter holidays? Nope, it’s summer. This is when all the barbecues, lake trips, and flying to see family while kids are on school break happens. The best thing you can do is stay on track. When traveling, look for a hotel with a gym and look into that gym. Look at the photos to see what kind of machines are available or call and ask what machines are there. If you have to book somewhere with no gym or less than desirable machines, rest assured there is a gym nearby wherein you can use a guest pass. And lastly, plan your workouts in the morning. We know sometimes it won’t be possible because you have early plans but you’re less likely to workout if you save it for the evenings.

Continental breakfast for the win

If your hotel serves breakfast, even better! You’re not spending money, you don’t have to get ready, and you can always find something that jives with your diet like hard boiled eggs or granola. There will be a lot of temptations like cream cheese bagels (who doesn’t like cream cheese bagels?) and waffles but try to resist. Get your breakfast and bring it back to your room then you aren’t eating around strangers in your pj’s. You can eat in the comfort of your room while you watch television or get ready for your day.

Bring all the snacks

Ask for a fridge and bring snacks. If you can’t get a fridge, pack a cooler. Bring berries, cucumbers, hummus, granola, low sugar yogurt, protein packs, we could go on forever. But make sure you have options for you and your kids. You’ll be so proud of yourself by the end of your trip. That’s not saying don’t indulge every now and then but everything in moderation. Sometimes you just can’t, like if you’re camping and everything is pre-packaged. However, keep your goals in mind and remember them when you’re making your food/eating decisions.
