Staying Healthy On Holidays (Part 3 of 3)

8. Don’t Drink Alcohol Everyday
I get it, your on holiday and you want to let your hair down.
But getting drunk every day is one of the easiest ways to put on weight quickly.
Cocktails are often very high in calories, drinking often leads to poor food choices (while you are drinking and the next day), and it will often mean you will sleep more, and not do as many activities to stay active.
Having a bit of a rough plan when it comes to your drinking while you are away can really help you maintain balance.
You don’t have to get rid of all spontaneity and be like well I’m only drinking on Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
But, you can make a decision to only drink say 3 days out of your 7 day trip. And then what days they end up being is up to you.
Again, I’m not here to say you must do this or must do that. Or to say that drinking is bad.
I am just giving options for if you do want to maintain a bit of balance on your holiday.
9. Come Home & Get Back Into Routine
This one seems to be the most difficult for people, and it is quite often not the holiday that is the problem.
It is the disruption to the routine and the relaxed attitude that comes home with you.
It’s great you are relaxed and refreshed. But if you don’t get back into a routine with your diet and exercise, things can quickly spiral, and you can soon start to feel like things are getting out of control.
Three, six, even twelve months can pass and all of a sudden you are disappointed in yourself, unhappy and know that you have a tough road ahead of you to get back to you where you want to be.
Don’t let it get that bad.
Yes it will suck, getting back into a routine after a week or two off is always a challenge.
But the sooner you suck it up and take the leap, the better you will feel long term.
Depending on what day I get back from a trip, I usually like to give myself a few days to catch up on housework, washing, rest and start easing myself back into it.
Getting up and going for a walk is an easy way to ease yourself back into a routine and start to readjust your body clock to your ‘home’ schedule.
Getting back from a holiday can also be the perfect time to implement new habits as you have had that break, you are feeling more refreshed and you will feel more motivated.
So take advantage of that energy and go for it!
I always like to have a plan ready for when I come home, so toward the end of my trip I start to turn my mind to ‘what’s next?’
I don’t wait til I get home to start thinking about what I “should” be doing. I already have a plan or have started formulating a plan that I am excited about to come home and put into play.
This gives me something to look forward to and keeps my motivation high.
It also prevents me from getting stuck and then having to fight even harder to get my motivation back.
