How to stay on track while on holiday

How to stay on track while on holiday

I am finding it so hard to believe we're in September!
The festive season is just around the corner and I know many of you like myself will be travelling overseas, going away to see family, attending events and more. 

I'm no stranger to going out of state to visit loved ones.
In fact, it's to be expected and I have adjusted to eating and training while in Adelaide or elsewhere to see family.

For anyone planning to go away and might have to deal with cravings, indulgent food being offered and the lack of a gym, this blog's for you. 
It may seem as if holidays and travel would require a lot more persistence when it comes to your diet and exercise.
This is true in some ways- but the key to conquering it is keeping a positive mindset.

If you know your routine, have been keeping on track and stick to the consistency rule - why should a few days or weeks ruin your journey?

Travelling and holidays are a great opportunity to test how you can adapt to a new situation.

I've always preached that you should only ever follow a diet or exercise routine that's maintainable.
Strict diets and shortcuts can never be converted into a lifestyle and you risk damaging your mental and physical health. 

You should never feel guilty about treating yourself on a trip or holiday.
However, still being conscious of healthy choices should be something you do any given day.
I am a huge advocate of promoting the importance of inner health.
Being wary of wha you put in your mouth everyday is not purely designed to make you feel good about the way you look on the outside, but how you feel on the inside as well.
So, go ahead and enjoy that piece of cake.

Here are my tips for HOLIDAYS x HEALTH & FITNESS

  • During the festive season, stick with the 80/20 rule
    This follows on from my belief that consistency truly is the key. 
    If you are making the right choices the majority of the time, this allows you to live a balanced lifestyle and enjoy treats in moderation.
  • Eat before you go to events
    This will stop you from snacking the entire time, and ensure you're getting the right nutrition your body deserves. It will also help with those cravings! 
  • Get a workout in wherever you can - even if that means make-shifting your carry on suitcase into a weight!
    Don't be hesitant to break a sweat if you can't get a full session in. Even 15 minutes is better than nothing.
    You can use the functional sessions in THE BOD that don't require any equipment and challenge your friends around the world with the hashtags! 
  • Take the stairs, not the elevator ;)
  • Avoid binge drinking
  • Prepare ahead
    Always ensure you have a stocked fridge with healthy meals ready to go! 

After seeing Hailey's progress photo following PRO BOD, I HAD to share it.

In the duration that she followed the program, she travelled to America for FOUR WEEKS. 
One third of her program - all overseas. It just goes to show that it can be done anywhere. 

B&A of Hailey

Here's what she had to say:

'I've been following THE BOD since it's first release. I couldn't wait to get my hands on this.
I've always over exercised which actually lead to over eating. So being super fit, but not looking it and being unable to maintain when I would lose weight. 
 
Before THE BOD, I had never been on a holiday where not only was I able to maintain but even lose weight while away. 
 
The best thing about the program is being able to choose between a gym workout or home, although I still normally do the home based workout at the gym, (just a personal choice). 
THE BOD hard copy lives on the bench in the kitchen, easy access to write out the shopping list and then flip the book to write out the next days training. 
 
Before going away for 3 1/2 weeks to America I was 100% determined to keep up all I had achieved. 
Each morning without fail I would train, the hotel did have a gym, but just had a treadmill, which was perfect for the sprints.
I also did a lot of the functional training sessions. To be honest some mornings my training sessions were finished within 20-30mins.
This is one of the reasons it is maintainable while away, I could find 20-30mins a day and give it my all. 
Training each morning gave me the kickstart for the day and helped me make healthy chooses with food too. 
I still enjoyed a few cheeky treats and never felt guilty. I kept my water intake, portions sizes down.  
I also managed this while travelling with my 6month old!'
