Hey there friendlings,
Hope you’re all good.
I understand that many people started the new year with the ambition and resolution to become healthier, more fit and exercise more frequently. Spring break is coming up, meaning tons and tons and tons of laziness, food and more.
TRUST ME, I’ve been there. If not, I think I’ve had it worse. I was living out of my suitcase for well over a month! I definitely understand the struggle of always eating out, and not being in the mood to hit the gym or even affording membership for it!
Therefore, I’m proud to give you my tips and tricks on how you can stay fit, whilst enjoying your vacation!
1. Making yo’ belly happy!
Making your belly happy doesn’t necessarily mean eating a whole pack of Oreos and making Mc Donald’s a three-times-a-day-meal. Making your belly happy simply means you give your belly the nutrients it needs!
Did you Know ?
In order to live a healthy and nutritious life
, the suggested food elements are as required:
1. Carbohydrates , carbohydrates is your main source of energy.
2. Protein , protein repairs and maintains body cells
3. Fats( Overall your body should’nt have no more than 30% fat) , fat is necessary for growth and repair of cells
4. Vitamins and Minerals
5. Water – the most IMPORTANT nutrient.
I understand that it’s not always easy finding cheap , affordable and quick already made foods , but at least make sure you’re getting ALL the nutrients you need , daily !
2. It’s the little things that count!
Start off slow! Never exercise with a body that is in extreme pain and is beyond exhausted. I’m not saying that you should sit and do nothing. Start slowly by strolling around the country or town you’re visiting, by walking. This way you’re exploring and getting the exercise you need!
One of my favorite ways to explore is by visiting a national park. National parks usually provide informative/historical billboards. This way you’re learning more about locals, the history of the place you’re visiting, enjoying nature and of course, exercising.
As soon as you’ve got your rest and feeling more or less like yourself, GO FOR IT! Take a jog, a run, have an intense workout and shoot for the stars. Never underestimate the power you truly have. In other words, increase the pace that it would take you to go site seeing.BUT remember that sometimes enough is enough!
4. A one weeker
Exercising once a week or once in a blue moon is simply not enough.Try to make it a regular thing. Skip the elevator or escalator and jog up or down the stairs, once again, it’s the little things that count. Use your time wisely.
5. Enough is enough
Never push yourself to the point that you hate what you are doing. Exercise should be a stress reliever, or even an exciting time! But remember, this is your vacation!
I hope that you enjoyed the FIRST HALF of my TWO week series . I’ve got so much to share with you and I hope you are as excited as I am !
