Vacation Workouts so you Can Stay on Track When You Travel

I’ve spoken before about how even though I’ve lost 40 pounds and I’ve been a nutritionist and a trainer for the past 6+ years… my inner fat girl is still very much alive inside of me.  There is still a big part of me that doesn’t like exercise… and LOVES food.  But, my inner fit girl knows better.

While on vacation last month, I gave my inner fat girl a hall pass.  I went to Europe (Belgium, Germany and the Netherlands)  I’ve never been to Europe… and don’t think I’ll be going back anytime soon, and was super excited to be able to eat new things.  Also, I haven’t been on a true vacation in over 8 years.  This is the first time I’ve traveled without a computer.  It’s also the first time I’ve totally disregarded my meal plan and exercise program while on vacation.  Normally, I stick to my plan about 80% of the time and indulge 20% and exercise to leverage the damage done while traveling.  This is also the advice I recommend to people who are actively working my programs who are about to travel.

I don’t recommend skipping workouts on vacation.   I also don’t recommend going Man vs. Food and eating like it’s your job while on vacation.  I do recommend trying to 3 square meals a day… which is how many meals I had a day, however I completely disregarded calorie and nutrient counts/combinations while on vacation.  I did not follow my own advice.  Does this make me a hypocrite?  NO!  It makes me human.  If you tend to overdo it on vacay DO NOT STEW IN THE AFTERMATH/GUILT.  (this gives your inner fat girl power to keep you off track… and it will only get worse if you don’t snap back and get on track!)

Being honest about my experience though, I can stay that I feel puffy, bloated, jiggly and kinda mad at myself.  My inner fit girl isn’t allowing my inner fat girl to stay mad very long… I know I can undo the damage… fairly quickly.  (I’ll be Resetting myself next Monday with my Reset Cleanse to get back to normal.) But I wish I hadn’t neglected my weight training workouts.  Even though I enjoyed the break… feeling blahhhhhh is making it harder to adjust back to reality of my normal everyday life.

I’ve had several clients, subs, and followers ask me for tips on how to stay on track while on vacation… some of them are concerned they’re going to undo the good they’ve done working their programs.  Others are afraid they’ll be tempted and succumb to emotional/binge eating/drinking.  Others still are concerned about how enjoying alcoholic drinks will affect their progress.  Most are concerned about how they can maintain their positive momentum and workout even though they won’t have access to a gym…  That’s what today’s episode of CCtv is all about.

I wanted to share vacation friendly workouts for women, that you’ll be able to do from your room that don’t require any weights.  I really think you’ll love it and find that you can get a great workout (in 20 minutes tops!), feel accomplished and proud which will help enhance your mood while on vacation.  See me explain and share the workout in today’s episode of CCtv.

How to do this Vacation Workout

These six exercises target the core and legs utilizing a special rep strategy.  The 6 exercises are combined into 3 sets.  To rock this workout you’ll need to do each exercise 4 times, then move immediately to the next exercise in that set.  You’ll complete 16 reps of each exercises total, moving from one exercise to the next without resting, repeating each exercise 4 times, before switching.   1 round of exercises completes 1 round (or set) and you need 3 full sets to complete your workout.  If you feel like it’s too easy, do 4 sets.

For the best results, I recommend doing this routine at least once a week.  Heads up!  This workout isn’t going to do much if you’re not following a meal plan, cardio and full body weight training program that’s a good match for your body type and goal look. If you truly want to lose weight and improve your health and confidence join my Total Transformation Challenge.  You’ll get noticeable results in DAYS not weeks!!  Guaranteed.

It only works if you work it, so work it.  YOU are so worth it!

vacation workout for women
 

Everything I do is to help educate, motivate and inspire others to be more happy, healthy and fit.  So when I had noticed I was getting similar questions from different people I decided to start this series.  People were asking me things like::

How do I stay on track with my program on vacation?
Can I lose weight while I’m on vacation?
I’ve been doing so good lately but I’m going on vacation and I don’t want to mess anything up.  Help!

That’s why I’ve developed a series of vacation-friendly workouts for women concerned about how they can maintain their positive momentum and workout even though they won’t have access to a gym…  I’ve already shared this full body vacation workout… but today we’ll be focusing on the core with a complete ab workout.  You don’t have to be going on vacation or wait for your next vacay to rock this workout either!

I really think you’ll love it.  It’s easy to do, but effective.  You don’t need any equipment and you can do these ab exercises from your hotel room, your hotel’s gym, or outside (like I did :).  Plus, it uses a fun rep count strategy that makes it fun and fresh.   See me explain and share the workout in today’s episode of CCtv.

ab workout for women
I’m super excited about the leg workout I’m sharing with you today. This is part-3 in a series of workouts I’ve designed for you to do anywhere. (no excuses)

You don’t need any equipment and you don’t have to be in a gym. You can literally do this leg workout anywhere and it only takes about 20 minutes.

This week’s leg workout was inspired because I had a lot of ladies asking me for low impact leg exercises they could do at home without any equipment… So I decided to put together leg workout that’s also vacay-friendly.

I really think you’ll love it.  It’s easy to do, but effective.

Plus, it uses a fun rep count strategy that makes it fun and fresh.   See me explain and share the leg workout in today’s episode of CCtv.
