No Gym While Traveling? 5 Tips To Stay Healthy

We are back from Boston and had so much fun! It was so nice to have all the uninterrupted time together and not have to work at all over the weekend. I have so many posts coming up that I’m excited to share with you all!! Boston is such a great and walkable city, I’d highly recommend everyone to visit. We didn’t work out at all on our trip except for all of the walking that we did. People often worry about gaining weight on their vacations, but that doesn’t have to happen.

Here are my top 5 tips for staying healthy on vacation:

  1. Choose which meal/treat you really want to splurge on and pick healthier options for the other meals throughout the day. That way you still get to eat great food, but you won’t need to buy a new pair of pants when you get home 😂 If I know that I’m having a big dinner, I’ll try to eat lighter throughout the day so that I can really enjoy my dinner guilt free. One exception to this is that there’s always room for ice cream 🍦
  2. Eat a filling breakfast! Jon and I did this our first day in Boston and we made it through the whole freedom trail without getting hungry. We didn’t have to stop for any emergency snacks when we had this big breakfast. On another day we didn’t eat breakfast and had to stop in a cafe to eat something quick (a cupcake) and cure our hanger
  3. Walk when you can! This is a great way to see the city and burn some calories. In Boston we walked over seven miles a day! My family loves to walk so whenever we went on a beach vacation we would walk the beach in the morning. In Greece we also did some hikes.
  4. Drink water, this will keep you full as well and hunger can often be mistaken for thirst
  5. Bring protein/fat rich snacks. These will keep you fuller longer than say a granola bar because carbs tend to me quicker, shorter bursts of energy

Hope these tips help! Come back tomorrow to see our first days in Boston!
