Maintain Weight While Traveling

Maintain Weight While Traveling

by Jenny on November 30,
One of the best parts of traveling happens to be all of the wonderful eateries just waiting to be discovered like a diamond in the rough! The Sherpa and I have definitely discovered some fab places on our journey. We have indulged in much decadent delicatessen!

All of those wonderful meals and ever forgiving scrubs…my favorite jeans have shrunk? When did they become so tight? Perhaps those ultra comfy sweats have prevented the ultimate in realization… my pants didn’t shrink…my butt grew! Time has come for some drastic physical changes. And as we all know…beauty starts from the inside.

So, we have set a goal of keeping our calories around 400 per meal in order to lose those extra pounds we have accumulated. After all, weight loss occurs through healthy eating and exercise. For the sake of success, we will leave out the dirty word…diet. I prefer the terminology of lifestyle changes.

Since the weather outside continues to grow colder each day, we have joined a local gym to enhance this process. We enjoy running outdoors immensely, however the extreme twenty degree temperatures and seventy mile per hour wind will detour that desire quickly!

We have also started by cleaning up our food choices by cutting out an over-consumption of high fat meats. Our protein choices have included fish and skinless chicken breast. At one time we were strict vegetarians. We have become just like an ex smoker who decides to smoke that one cig at a party because they happen to be a tad bit… lit. Our carnivore ways have surmounted to out of control.

A few other goals we have set for ourselves include:

  • Drinking lots of water
  • Adding a multivitamin
  • Working out at least three days a week doing cardio
  • Lift weights on the opposite days
  • Pick one day of the week to enjoy a new dining experience

    I like all of these. We walk every day. I read somewhere that if you walk a mile a day you add 10 years to your life. I learned years ago, living in Alaska, how to get out every day – well almost every day – weather be damned. It feels so good – once you’re out the door. It’s that getting out the door.

    Thanks for the clean cut reminders here. Happy winter trails!

    I used to do cycling for fun. I would ride for 10 kilometers a day. But that all ended when I had an accident. Now I don’t want to do it anymore, it really scares me just thinking about it.

      I really enjoy cycling! Sorry to hear that you have had a cycling accident. When I have to share the road with inattentive motorist, I tend to get very anxious! Do you mind me asking what happened?

      Most days we struggle with finding time to cook a healthy meal. We keep our meals simple with food choices that include cereal, salads, and lean cuts of fish or chicken. We are always looking for quick, simple meals! If you have any yummy ideas, please dish!
