Can you say VACATION!!!
We are heading out to go camping in our trailer at the beach next week. We will be staying at an RV resort for 2 weeks and away from the normal exercise routine of home. I am leaving the exercise bike at home (it doesn't fit in the trailer!!!) and have come up wih a set of vacation exercise options...
1.Taking my bike along so can ride around camp, into town near our campsite, to the beach and on the beach when there is a low tide, and on trails in local state parks
2.Taking a kick board along so that I can swim laps in the pool during "adult pool time" at the RV park pool.
2.Planning some beach walks and hikes in the nearby state parks
Also need to keep eating healthy while enjoying the local cuisine!!
1. Plan to keep eating my daily morning oatmeal to keep my fiber levels up
2. Going to buy local shrimp and make bbq chicken tenders and make salads to take to the beach in a cooler for lunch or make tuna salad or chicken salad sandwiches.
3. Will plan in the calories for meal out and plan lots of barbecue dinners at camp
4. Definitely need to budget in some calories for smores, ice cream sundaes and smoothies! Vacation won't be vacation without the favorite foods!!
I am making a plan and going to have a healthy and fun vacation! How about you sparkbuddies? What do you do when you go on vacation...do you make a healthy plan? Do you say whatever...it's vacation and not worry about it? Do you think my plan sounds OK?
I know that I will not keep up the exercise if it is not fun and part of our daily activities so I am sticking to things we all love to do as a family or that are available to me during resting at camp times. I plan on burning some calories jumping in the waves, playing pool volleyball and riding funny ocean bikes too! Building Sandcastles should also be on the Sparkpeople daily exercise plan (don't you agree!!) Summer and Camping and the Ocean have been part of my life since I was a little girl and it is such a healthy vacation destination. I just need to put down the library book, get out of my beach chair and enjoy the view as I go walking and riding along the coastline...what's so hard about that?? Smiles and Sunshine to you today!
