01/13/15- Paula's Eating/Exercise Journal : Monday

by Paula (Clean Eating Expert) 11. January 2014 05:34

When I was out of town, I continued with my workouts because I love it, because it boosts my energy, and because it burns off that “man, I drank and ate too much on this trip”.  I stayed at my friend’s house, so access to a gym isn’t an option (my friend’s gym wanted $20 per day in guest fees).  That was ridiculous.  How can you accomplish workouts on the go?

  1. Workout tubes and bands are very transportable and lightweight.  You can do most any exercise with a tube, especially if your tube has a toggle on it that you can catch over the top of a stable door.
  2. Take workout DVD’s. Take a portable player (you can rent them at airports if you don’t want to invest in one), or use one in your hotel room.
  3. Do body-weight bearing exercises like squats, push-ups dips and pliometrics.
  4. Pack your gym shoes.  Take a walk.  It doesn’t cost a thing.

Going out of town can’t be an excuse to abandon your workout goals.  You’ll find it harder to stick with your program if you stop-n-start a lot.  Try to do something when you travel and you’ll feel the positive rewards.
