Weekly Workouts – Travel Prep

Skip to Weekly Workouts

 

Yay!! It’s finally (almost) here! We leave for Bimini this week and I absolultely can. not. wait.  These next three days of work is going to be rough but at least there is a bright Bahaham sun light at the end of the tunnel! T-Minus three days. Stay Focused!

Anytime I travel anywhere….I try to find a balance between enjoying myself but still keeping in mind whats imporant to me, being healthy!  Traveling can make this SUPER difficult.  Long plane/car rides, limited food options, busy schedules, no gym available, and just the simple fact of being on vacation and wanting to relax….these all present  huge barriers for sticking to something that resembles a routine.

For me – the key is planning ahead and being realistic.  I KNOW I’m not going to eat as healthy as I do when I’m home, and honestly I don’t want to.  I want to get in on that sushi.  Devour some tacos.  Munch on some fries, and mostly….indulge on some adult beverages.  I know I’m going to do those things and I’m not going to feel bad about it.   I AM on vacay.  I just make sure not every meal is extravagant and I make it a priority to plan for myself.

We travel to Disney a lot (I’m a huge huge Disney fan.  We’ll talk about this later when I have time for an entire Disney post) and my carry-on is pretty much filled with snacks.  My family thinks I’m a bit crazy but it makes me a happier and more pleasant person throughout our trip.  For instance – I HAVE to eat breakfast.  I’m a real bitch if I don’t.  This usually isn’t a priority for people I travel with so I bring my own oatmeal and individual packages of Justin’s Almond Butter (Vanilla flavor is my favorite).  No matter where I travel, I pretty much always have access to water and microwave.  Heat up oatmeal, add almond butter, and viola!  I have a healthy breakfast to start my day.

People are usually surprised to find what I travel with on a plane.  Aside from almond butter and oatmeal, I often take….

  • Bananas
  • Apples
  • Baby Carrots
  • Cut up cucumber or peppers
  • Lara or Clif Bars
  • Nuts

Or whatever else I can fit into my bag!  Just look at the restrictions if you’re traveling international – this can vary!  Packing these snacks keeps me on track, happy, and leaves room for the goodies I want to indulge in becase honestly – overpriced shitty airport food doesn’t do it for me.  I’ll save it for the good stuff 🙂

Aside from food – I also try to stay active when I travel.  It has actually become one of my favorite parts of vacationing.  I keep my scheduled as I do at home….early morning workouts.  Some people think I’m crazy for this, but it’s my favorite.  Vacations can be busy and you’re usually around people constantly. I love it, but the morning is my time.  Its quite. Peaceful. Before the rest of the world wakes up.  Truthfully, I find a bit of magic in that.  I also tend to see some cool shit like lightening storms over the ocean and turtle tracks before they’ve been washed away.  I usually get a run in because they make me happy but also plan ahead with some pre-written workouts.  I know I won’t workout everyday like I do at home especially if we have some late nights but, like I said, realistic goals are important and I’m like everyone else where I can lose motivation too.  Having something written out already and a few goals set for myself ahead of time makes me keep moving. And I never regret it.

Do you have any tips or tricks to staying on track?  Feel free to share them!
