Here’s how to do it.
#1 Benefit - Perfect workout for the lazy exerciser!
Instead of hitting snooze in the am, just start moving. You will burn calories, tone your muscles, jumpstart your metabolism, and give you the energy to get your butt out of bed.
Get your workout out of the way before you even start your day.
The instability and bounce of the bed forces stabilizing muscles to fire, enhancing the workout.
If you forgot to fit in your workout during the day, you can slip it in at night before you fall asleep. If you really push yourself your body will tire ensuring a good night’s rest.
Plus 4 steps to take while on vacation to keep the mindful living mojo:
Take Advantage of Your Environment:
Do yoga on a rock, take a hike, scuba dive, snorkel, swim in the ocean, go on a walk, take a water aerobics class.
Eat Simply, Locally, and Share:
Talk to the chef, see what’s local and fresh. Ask for that prepared in the simplest clean way to bring out the ingredient’s natural flavors. I love fresh, simply grilled fish, ceviche (raw fish and cucumber marinated in lime juice, spices), fruit platter flavored with fresh lime or even cayenne pepper. When it comes to guacamole- yes enjoy! But instead of dipping fatty fried chips into the guacamole, use jicama, carrot sticks, celery or radishes.
If you are at a place where margaritas are the local drink, ask for them skinny: tequila, fresh squeezed lime (lots of it), agave, and a little fresh local juice if you want.
Look at the Activities Calendar!
That’s how you will find out about activities like Yoga on the Rock, or cultural lessons like tequila tastings, or even about new spa specials like a Tequila massage (amazing!). Even if your entire purpose of vacation is to do nothing at all, you can still be healthy and even lose weight while you’re doing it.
So don’t stress about staying slim on vacation. Just be smart and make Fit decisions and you could even come home a few pounds lighter!
