Spring break season is here! Are you getting ready for fun in the sun, time with friends, and sipping cool refreshing drinks with little umbrellas?
Personal Trainer Food wants you to know that there are healthy ways to enjoy spring break without causing a diet disaster.
When you’re on your way to relax, whether it be Miami or Cancun, keep these healthy tips in mind and stay on track to keep your body “beach ready” all summer long. After all, you want that awesome bikini (or three) you bought for spring break to look great on you for the whole swimsuit season!
Stick to the habits you’ve learned while on Personal Trainer Food.
You may not be bringing your Personal Trainer Food with you, but that doesn’t mean you can’t make good choices. Some people believe that when they’re on vacation, it gives them a free pass to eat and drink whatever they want. Unfortunately, your body doesn’t know the difference between being on vacation and not.
You can still splurge, but instead of splurging on carbs and sugars, treat yourself to lobster, a nice steak dinner, or an awesome salad. Although we don’t have fish on our menu here at Personal Trainer Food, it’s a great choice to make when eating out and it’s a great compliment to the program! For your side items, skip the rice and beans and have some fresh, steamed vegetables or a bit of tropical avocado instead.
Oh…and that gas station junk food you might pick up before you hit the road is not the treat you want to eat. Most gas stations have hard boiled eggs, beef sticks, cheese, diet sodas and even salads available, so there is no need to go off-program!
Take advantage of the all-inclusive resorts.
They will help save you money and also provide you with great “get-moving” activities like yoga, volleyball, or snorkeling. This will allow you to switch up your walking routine and enjoy your vacation at the same time.
Avoid the umbrella drinks.
Alcohol in general is going to set you back on any program. Worse yet, drinks like Strawberry Mango Margaritas, Mojitos, and such are loaded with sugars. These drinks can have over 50 grams of sugar in them! Think of them as fat-bombs to your lean lifestyle. If you are going to have a drink, keep it to a minimum and immediately get back to your healthy vacation choices we talked about above to minimize the set back.
How to recover if you do over-do it.
You should come back from your vacation feeling rested and refreshed; not tired and spent from eating the wrong things and drinking the entire time. If your vacation leaves you feeling a little sluggish, we recommend doing a 24-48 hour clear liquid fast. Next, get right back on your program. Do not let Spring Break be the reason for an extended vacation from fat loss! The faster you get back on track, the better your body will look as summer-time fun heats up.
