The winter season isn’t over yet and many of us want to book a quick beach vacation to escape the cold and get some much-needed sunshine. Let’s face it; it can be a challenge to remain focused when your spending a week at an all-inclusive resort. You’re likely going to kick up your feet, relax and have a few cocktails. Remember that moderation is key when it comes to your vacation diet and consistency is essential for exercise results. Here is your contingency plan – 3 key tips and a killer workout to ensure that your fitness is on point!

The 30min promise

Make a pact with yourself that you will incorporate at least 30min of purposeful exercise into each day your away. A run along the beach in the morning, time on the tennis court, a game of beach volleyball or some time spent snorkeling can be great ways to ensure you stay active while away. Additionally, setting up some active excursions in advance is a great way to ensure you experience new activities and keep those calories from accumulating.

Hydrate to moderate

We’ve all heard the importance of drinking 8 glasses of water a day, but taking your hydration seriously while away on vacay will really pay off. Not only will you likely be exposed to warm temperatures for extended periods of time which promotes water loss, you will also likely have the odd cocktail here and there – adding to the dehydration effect. Try having one tall glass of water between ever beer or cocktail that you consume. The result is two-fold; you will do a better job of keeping your body hydrated and you will also promote the moderation of alcohol intake.

Better bad choices

Lavish meals, gluttonous deserts, salty and sweet snacks are at your fingertips when your at an all-inclusive resort. Pre-planning with a goal of controlling portions can allow you to enjoy and indulge a little but also prevent gorging! During your visit to the smorgasbord of delightful food choices, try to make as many BBC’s (Better Bad Choices) as possible when it comes to the decadent and savory food offerings. Making choices like lean fish as opposed to burgers, baked or sautéed veggies instead of fried versions can make a big difference in the long run. Additionally, make a pact to include salad or veggies with each meal and limit yourself to one serving of meat and carbs.

Beach chair workout

Here is your exercise solution. To get an amazing full body strength workout and burn some serious calories try this Beach Chair Workout. This is a 6 exercise routine using your own body weight and your beach chair – don’t worry you won’t have to be in the gym missing out on the sunshine.
