I take my kids' DVD player, exercise DVDs that require no equipment or just a stretchy band, my yoga mat, and workout clothes and shoes on road trips. And when staying in a hotel or on a cruise ship, I take advantage of the gym. My mom & SILs thought I was nuts when they first learned I was doing this, thinking since I was no longer overweight, I no longer needed to exercise daily, especially on vacation. I finally convinced them that I enjoy it, and it's nice to have the energy to do all the sight-seeing, etc. on vacation, and to come back with little or no weight gain. After reading this article though, I see a lot of room for improvement, like the 10 minute walking breaks while driving and bringing my own healthy snacks. Thanks for the good ideas!
