How to stay healthy on holidays
Are you packing up the family and going on a summer holiday? Here are ways you can ensure you don’t fall off the weight loss wagon and undone all your hard work.
1. Exercise – it doesn’t have to be hard!
You can sneakily incorporate exercise into your holiday by taking the whole family on beach walks, hikes, waking up before everyone and doing a quick 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge workout or simply take 20 minutes for yourself and do a mind body breathe session.
This will bring you back to the moment and allow you to make clear and healthy decisions.
If you’re heading overseas there are various activities you can do with your kids and still get an incidental workout in such as jet skiing, beach volleyball, walking and exploring your surroundings.
Research where you are going and if you work well in groups you may like to join a group exercise class at a gym or hotel. Also look up some great scenic walks or hikes the whole family can join you on!
When it comes to eating, of course enjoy yourself on your holiday but don’t go overboard. If you are going overseas fill your plate with delicious traditional food, but make sure to include vegetables and fruit!
Take advantage of your smoothies
If you can, why not bring your Healthy Mummy smoothies and get either your hotel to make you one up or if you’re not staying in a hotel bring your blender with you! Having this on hand will remind you to have your smoothie as a quick snack or meal replacement.
By making some snacks before your trip you can go prepared if it’s a long haul flight or drive. Having these snacks on hand is also a win for the kids!
