Taking Fitness on the Road

Two girls, teens perhaps... these young ladies...

Oh, hey, come here much…  

Travel can be a significant barrier for those of us that are trying to maintain a healthy lifestyle.  But you say, “Matt, I’m on vacation, that means I check the diet and exercise at the door so I can make room for Pina Coladas and long days of pool-side lounging.”  BS!! Ask yourself how you felt the last time you spent several days of drinking and eating like crap combined with inactivity.

When you look at vacation and travel through the lens of the healthy person you want to be it becomes difficult to imagine that high school spring break where you lived off of Peanut Butter Captain Crunch and Beer.  Like everything we are going for a balanced lifestyle no matter where you are.  Keep the basics in mind, find a reason to be active every day and watch the higher calorie foods and drinks.

I have developed the habit of looking for something fun and active to do when ever I go out of town that allows me to experience the place I am visiting.  This has resulted in some pretty fun experiences like paddle boarding in South Caroline and a 5K scavenger hunt in New Orleans.  There are just as many things to do as a family if you are committed to your self-care and plan ahead just a little bit.

Have a great Monday!!
