Have you planned to be successful? Some suggestions:
- Before you leave, identify places for exercise – walking/bike trails, gyms, bike rentals, pools, beaches, etc. We’re more likely to get exercise when we know what to do and have a clear plan and schedule in mind to do it. Make it a family event!
- While in the car, on the plane or train, etc, make a grocery list. Make sure that list doesn’t start with “chips” and “soda pop.” Plan to cook some if you have cooking facilities – a generally healthier option. Cook in bulk, or take turns if in a large (family) group; again, scheduling helps.
- Try to catch up on sleep. Most Americans are sleep deprived, and sleep deprivation probably helps to produce obesity.
