Staying In Shape While Travelling

Hi genies
With summer all around us, you might have made some plans to go on a vacation near the beach and just relax and enjoy your time off. Although I think it is very important to give yourself a break every now and then, you don’t want a couple of weeks off from your daily routine completely ruin everything you have worked so hard for. So therefore, I have made a little list of tips and tricks to help you stay on the bandwagon without too much effort:

1. Be active and have fun!
Sometimes it’s just so nice to lounge around all day long and read a book while on vacation but try to engage in a fun activity every now and then. The beach is one of the best places to go for this. On the one hand you can relax and sunbathe but on the other hand you can also get moving and go swimming, play beach volley ball or – one of my favourites – beach tennis!

2. Drink Water!
Whilst it may be nice to have a soda or a some alcohol when you’re on holiday, I’d say it is important that you try to stay hydrated and choose water instead of sugary drinks.

3. Walk!
This is probably one of the simplest tricks, instead of driving everywhere just try to walk and explore your surroundings. Maybe you can even go hiking if you’re into that. And don’t worry! If you’re stuck in a resort but there’s not really a hiking path, sometimes you don’t even have to go outside for this:

The Aria Las Vegas, for example, has a “Hotel Hike” that is designed to target the same muscles you would use on a regular hike. You are given a hike leader who will take you on a tour of the grand hotel past restaurants, the casino, and art installations. Escalators are off-limits for this unique hiking experience.

4. Hit the gym!
Most hotels nowadays are equipped with a gym that you’re welcome to visit. Even just a couple of minutes on a treadmill or elliptical is better than nothing! Some resorts even offer free classes that you can take part in.

5. Be aware of what you eat!
The last but certainly not least tip that I want to share with you is about food. Although I am all for indulging and enjoying time off your daily diet, it’s important that you are aware of what you’re eating and how much you’re eating. There is nothing worse than coming home after a nice trip and realising that you have undone most of your hard work. Just be sensible, allow yourself to cheat but don’t overdo it.

I hope these tips and tricks will help you! But most of all, enjoy your trip!! 🙂

HOLIDAY…

Hi genies
I’m sorry I haven’t posted anything lately but I’ve been on a lovely vacation in Mallorca! The weather was nice and I enjoyed just laying in the sun and swimming in the pool 😉 I didn’t really do anything else…just relax and read…aaahhhh it was definitely a much-needed break from ‘reality’ and the winter that’s slowly but surely creeping in…

We had such a gorgeous view from our hotel room and we could watch the sun set every night! Amazing!

One thing I love about holidays is going out to eat every day and being able to indulge a little bit and just enjoy life! Yumm

However, as much as I love traveling and escaping the “mundane” every now and then, I really missed my dog! Like, REALLY missed my dog…so although I’m not that into cats, I was quite happy when there was a cat coming to visit us every morning (but as I’m not used to having cats around, I was kind of scared at first…hehe)

So now you know what I’ve been up to the past week! Hope yours was as good as mine!
