Enjoy your vacay without getting fat

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! I am currently blogging from 10,000 feet in the air on my way to Florida with my family. 
Wi-fi on the plane is ah-mazing!  3 thumbs up
Since I’m going to be in a bikini and mini dresses most of the time, I made a master plan on how to enjoy vacation without coming home and feeling like a fat tub of lard. Most of the time we think vacation equals “I can pig out.”

Sure, you can pig out but you also need to be mindful of the choices you make, it’s easier than you think!

The day of…
Airport food sucks. If you want to eat healthy try sticking with something simple like a turkey sandwich or salad. When it comes to airport or airplane food, the simpler the better. Don’t even think about getting in the line at McDonalds…vacay hasn’t started yet.

FYI skip the “healthy” airport kiosks Most of the time you are not getting fresh, quality foods and paying a hefty price for it. gross veggie sandwich from an airport kiosk that I threw in the garbage
Always have snacks on hand. Bring granola bars, almonds, dried fruit, or pop chips.
Side note: Jan had to bake homemade hamentashen and bring it with us to Florida. Thanks Mom, just what I need when I’m getting in a bikini.

While you’re on Vacay:

Pace yourself. How do you pass up nutella and banana crepes in Paris? YOU DON’T. Just pace yourself and try not to get out of control.

Hide the mini bar key.  Do you really want to splurge on over priced chips and m&m’s? Save your calories for something that’s worth it!

Walk. On the beach, while shopping, opt for the walking tour, etc. Not only will you be able to see more of the city your traveling in, you will burn calories. Duh

Eat Regularly. We all love sleeping in while on vacation and running around seeing sites. Don’t skip meals, you will find yourself STARVING later on and pigging out on something you will regret. 


Peace out Chi Town
We really need a tan
