As you probably know, I just came back from a relaxing 11-day vacation in beautiful Trinidad. Well I am not sure about you, but sticking to eating clean can be rough when one is on vacation! So I came up with a kick-ass plan that allowed me to enjoy my vacation without packing on the pounds. Because as we all know, summer is right around the corner, and we need to keep it tight, lol!
- The first thing I do is find out where the closest grocery store is to where I am staying so that I can buy a couple of gallons of water and a bag of salad. Doing this can help keep you flush out any extra sodium or sugar you may have picked up throughout the day.
- I always try do a little workout. If the hotel has a gym, great! But if not, then that means you have two choices: a little light running for 30 to 40 mins, OR pick five of your favorite exercises such as lunges, sit-ups or squats, and do them for 30 seconds each with 20 second break in between for a total of 35 mins.
- My meal plans throughout the day looked something like this: eggs and fruits in the morning, for lunch I allowed myself to live a little, and for dinner I had protein shakes.
P.S. I actually dropped 2 pounds on vacation from all the walking I did!
