Below are her 3 favorite tips for living transformed on vacation!
Summer is definately here, which brings sunshine, pool parties, relaxation, and vacation!!! And for many of us, summer also means a deviation from our normal routine, making it feel a little more difficult to stay focused on our health and fitness goals. But, living transformed during the summer doesn't have to be difficult! You CAN continue to work towards your goals as you enjoy your summer. Here are a few tips that I have found helpful:
1. Create a plan to stay active!
Whether you are here in town or on a trip, make a plan to stay active! Each week, plan out when you would like to workout, where, and what you would like to do - running, walking, swimming, hiking or a Transformer class! If you are traveling, pack workout clothes and shoes. Make time during your trip to go for a run, walk, or do a bodyweight workout. Include your family or friends and make it a fun activity to do together! If you need some workout ideas while on vacation, there are a lot of great workouts on the TransFit App and website.
2. Continue making healthy food choices!
Meal planning can be challenging when you are out of your normal routine or on vacation, but you can continue to make healthy food choices. Try your best to eat 5 small meals a day, including a good amount of protein, veggies, and fruit. Grilled veggies, watermelon, and smoothies are some of my favorite choices in the summer! Drink plenty of water, aiming for at least 64 oz! You can find sample meal plans on the TransFit website and tons of yummy summer recipes. If you are on vacation, pack healthy snacks and a water bottle. Look for lean protein options and veggies at restaurants or when cooking meals for the family. Most importantly, give yourself GRACE! Progress not perfection and remember that moderation is key.
3. Have fun and take time to rest!
Enjoy your summer! Spend time with friends and family, rest and recover.
According to American College of Sports Medicine, rest is key in regulating the body’s processes, including appetite and metabolism. Lack of sleep can throw these processes off balance, and can to overeating. Getting enough sleep, seven to eight hours per night for adults, is important for replenishing the body’s energy stores. So please relax, refresh, and renew! Rest is critical for living transformed!
We hope that you are able to use these tips throughout your summer while on vacation! You can add in our July push-up challenge to your vacation, too!
