2018 is going to be a year full of new experiences and more traveling on our end. I love traveling. Staying on track is super important to me!
Here are a couple things that I think are very crucial to staying on track during travel and I want to share a few of my best tips with you Tips To Stay On Track While Traveling.
#1 – Control what you can control before you even leave! What I mean by that is to prepare. I bring all of my supplements with me and I bring snacks with me every single time I travel.
A couple crucial supplements that I bring with me are…
a) Shakeology: This is one meal of the day that I know is guaranteed to give me energy and the nutrients I need. I bring with me every single time I travel.
b) Probiotic: I know that digestive issues come up and bloating can be an issue for people when they travel, so I always make sure that I bring probiotics.
c. My pre workout: My pre workout gets me in the mood to workout even when I am not in the mood too.
Another thing that I bring with me in controlling what I can control is SNACKS! Macadamia nuts, cashews, raw almonds, turkey jerky, and some fruit.. I can bring all of those with me on a plane when I travel.
#2 – Your First Stop MATTERS! No matter what, no matter where I’m going or traveling to my first stop after the plane lands, or after we park the car is to go to the nearest grocery store and to stock up on things that I can have.
#3 – Plan workouts ahead of time! If you’re like me, when you travel you have very little time to squeeze a workout in. So I know that I have to plan to get my workout in BEFORE the day starts. Every time I travel I use my Beachbody On Demand and I will just workout from my iPad or my iPhone! Either way I am going to get my workout in. My workouts are my therapy .
HIIT workouts are awesome if you’re short on time. A Tabata is awesome if you’re short on time too. Bottom line you have to plan ahead for when you can get it in and when you can make it happen.
As far as going out to eat when you’re traveling there is something that you have to take into account… If you’re on vacation you may indulge a little bit more here or there.
At restaurants, I never look at what the menu has to offer “as is”. I always take into account the menu as a whole, I make adjustments, and I customize as I want to! I customize and adjust according to whatever they have. If they have fried fish tacos but they’re on flour tortillas I might ask them to grill the fish and put them on a corn tortilla instead. Basically you want to look at the menu, see what they have to offer, and put it all together as a customizable meal for you.
I did this recently at a restaurant… I ordered the turkey burger, but without a bun, and instead of mayo on top I asked to have mushrooms, bacon, avocado, sautéed onions on top. It was delicious and I LOVED IT! Just remember to look at the menu as à la carte. I know that it’s tempting to look at a menu and just say I’ll have a little bit of everything. When you’re traveling it’s important that you really take into account your goals and do your best to stay on track with that, and use the 80/20 rule.
#5 – MOVE MORE! Stay as active as possible. When you are traveling it’s very easy to just sit around, especially if you’re driving or flying.. but stay as active as possible Tips To Stay On Track While Traveling.
Always take into account that you’re human and can only do the best you can! Have fun and do the best you can to MOVE and plan ahead of time.
