Vacation the Lighter Way

FavoriteLoadingAdd to favorites

Vacation Eating Tips:
• Start with a low-fat, high-fiber breakfast
• Save calories and money - pack a lunch
• Bring a cooler filled with fruits, vegetables and water
• Sandwich shops can be a good choice when eating out
• Eat a large low-fat salad for dinner
• Choose beer or wine instead of margaritas and mixed drinks; better yet have one drink and then switch to water. If you don’t drink then water is fine!
Remember, vacation is a time to rejuvenate your health. It is hard to eat healthy and exercise during regular work weeks, so now is the time to treat yourself to a better health routine.

Vacation Exercise Tips:
• Plan for exercise.  Find out what exercise options are available.
• Pack your tennis shoes, workout clothes and a swim suit!
• Bring your pedometer.  Get a city map.  Walk whenever you can!
• Take walking breaks during your car or bus trip.
• Enjoy water exercise:  Swim laps, tread water or water walk.
• Try something new.  Maybe this is the year to rent a kayak.
Now is the time to jump start your exercise routine. Vacation is a fun time when you can try something new!
