So you have had the most fabulous vacation, you ate the best foods and relaxed to your hearts content. Now that you’re back home, we are all too familiar with that horrid feeling of, ‘what have I done?’ ‘Did I really eat all that food?’ ‘I am going on a strict diet now’ ‘I am never eating again!’
At least I know I have been a victim of those traumatic post vacation feeling all too many times. Again, don’t do that to your body, it takes 21 days to form a habit and for your body to accept the new great changes you have made. So treating your body like a trash can for the duration of your holiday just doesn’t make sense!
We traveled to Nassau, Bahamas for 5 days which was the first holiday where I tried to stay true to my routine and thoroughly enjoyed myself, guilt-free.
Start your morning the same way by having that delicious morning smoothie.
1 banana | 4 strawberries | handful of blueberries | 1/4 cup water
Then I used the beautiful setting to inspire a good work out because I’m the type of person who just cannot control my food intake during holidays! 😛
I started with a 5 minute jog in place.
The resistance band is your best travel companion. It’s light, takes no space and allows for a killer workout! I used a band which resists 15lbs
So this was my routine after 5 minutes of jogging.
3 sets of 12 bicep curls
3 sets of 12 triceps
3 sets of 12 shoulder press
3 sets of 12 front rows
3 sets of 12 lateral raise
3 sets of 12 alternate extensions
3 sets of 20 squats
3 sets of 12 lunges
3 sets of 12 side lunges
3 sets of 20 sit ups
3 sets of 20 leg extensions
Stretch it out and enjoy your day! Drink your protein! Take your multivitamins!
I ate lots of seafood and really enjoyed our vacation and best of all it felt great having none of those post holiday feelings! I successfully had no post vacation stress and this is just the beginning!
If I can do it, believe me anyone can!
