How to Focus on Your Fitness While on Vacation

The past weekend was all about a special someone's birthday...complete with a surprise trip to Savannah, Georgia.  I'll post more about the trip later!


Here are a few ways I stayed focused on my fitness goals while we were traveling:

1. I brought my portable DVD player and my 21 Day Fix DVDs. I prefer my portable DVD player over my laptop because of the size. I would also rather leave my laptop at home so I'm less tempted to use it to work. It's all about balance.  I packed my Beachbody Mini Mat and one set of weights.  Each morning I got up at least 30 minutes earlier to workout.  I'm NOT a morning person, but I knew that was the only way to be sure I would have time to get a workout in!

2. I made sure I had my Shakeology every day, just the way I like it. You can just mix up Shakeology with water in a shaker cup, but I prefer it blended with ice. I have a single serving blender I brought along to make sure I could enjoy my Shakeology after my workout. I also brought a couple of disposable plastic cups and straws instead of using my Shakeology cup so I would be able to take it with me while we walked around Savannah.

3. I brought bottled waters and some Fix approved snacks from home so that I had some healthy options throughout the day without having to scramble to try and find something while sightseeing.  Even with a small purse there are a lot of options to have on-the-go like unsalted nuts and multi-grain crackers.

So maybe I had an extra bag of things to haul up to the room, but I was able to stay on track even while enjoying a weekend out of town.  Totally worth it!  It's something that is now a priority to me. I feel so much better when I am working out and I was able to refuel and have energy for the rest of the day!

You don't have to be perfect each day.  Believe me, I ate a lot of AMAZING southern food while we were gone.  Just don't use a vacation as an excuse to completely fall off track.  If you are eating "happy meals" all weekend and not working out, that's where things start to go south.

How do you stay focused while traveling?  What are some of your go-to snacks?

I'm excited to share some of the highlights of the trip with you guys!  Thanks for visiting!
