Travel season is upon us. Don't let it throw your goals off track. We often use these trips as an excuse to abandon our health goals, but do you ever find yourself 2-3 weeks later still off track? Don't let this happen to you by following my simple tips below to help you stay on track this travel season.
3. Always eat breakfast!! Enough said :) With late starts and more relaxed schedules it's easy to think that skipping breakfast will help you "save up calories" for later. It might seem like a good idea, but it never works. Your body needs you to eat when you wake up to let it know that you are up and that your metabolism should kick back into gear, after rejuvenating itself while you're sleeping. Your body needs fuel to give it energy to do the things you love to do. Not eating means you aren't giving yourself the proper fuel and energy which often leads to sugar cravings as your body will naturally seek out energy and sugar is the quickest form of energy, If you skip breakfast, you will end up being hungrier than normal by the time you do actually eat, which often leads to overeating. Avoid all that and eat a good, solid breakfast to give you the proper nutrition and energy to enjoy your day.
4. Pick your daily "splurge". Knowing that you can have a daily splurge, gives you that meal that you know you will look forward to and will prevent you from feeling restricted - which will lead to eating everything ;). Enjoy but you don't have to be totally thrown off. So for example have a super healthy breakfast and know that your dinner will be your splurge meal. It is vacation after all - so go ahead and enjoy it!!
