We were on a limited budget, plus we knew what we were eating. One funny little incident... We were inline waiting to get on one of the rides. It was stinking hot! I emoticon I open up one of the water bottles and it sprays all over!!! I was mortified!!! emoticon You should have heard the screams !!! LOL Hey, lucky it was just water !!! LOL

"5. Bring breakfast -- Buy a bunch of bananas, bring yogurts or granola bars and have breakfast in your room."

This works at other times of the day, too. On our vacation, we took a cooler with cheese sticks and beverages. We also took a bag with bananas, grapes, apples, and various types of 100-calorie snacks. On 'driving days', we usually ate those instead of stopping at fast-food places for lunch (breakfast was provided at several of the hotels). If we got in late to a location, we had something to nibble on while we crashed in the room.

It also SAVED MONEY for fun stuff and nicer meals!

I always visit my family on vacation, which involves a road trip. It takes 2 days driving so we stop at a motel in the evening. It is so invigorating to take a swim and it also relieves the stress of driving so you can sleep better. emoticon emoticon

You cruise people: DO NOT DRINK THE WATER. Take your own supply of antibiotics.
I live in Florida - near a major cruiseport - and we hear on the news incessantly about bacterial diseases from the water and from the air. There is always someone in our hospitals who has returned from a cruise and unable to go home due to illness contracted onboard. Please take care of yourself. I hope you have fun.

Enjoy your cruise WWGIRLL. I just came back from my first cruise. You have a good plan set. I made sure to load up on my fruits and veggies at each meal and water. The only snacking I did in between were the fruits I grabbed from the breakfast buffet.

Have fun!!!!!

What great ideas! I am getting married in August and have a cruise planned (lot's of food and buffets). Not only do they have a gym on board but I am mentally preparing myself to walk the boat every morning. Also, summer in general has many food related events so these ideas are good for everday use. Thank You!

LET'S ALL TRY TO FOLLOW THESE.OR SOME OF THEM....LOVE YA', FLUTTERFLI
Top 10 Tips to Stay Fit While on Vacation
By Johnson Jaclyn
eDiets Contributor
It's summer, and you know what that means -- vacation time! A time to relax, kick back, take in the sun and let work slip from your mind for a few days.

While enjoying your vacation is top priority, it's important to keep your diet on track before you start sipping on your pina colada and ordering that double fudge brownie sundae. Whether your travels bring you to Europe or the Bahamas, here are some simple tips on how to stay fit while on vacation.

1. Drink lots of water -- Hydration is essential while traveling. Water fills you up and never lets you down.


Tried every diet and can't lose that stubborn fat? eDiets can help! Our nutrition specialists are here to help you shape up for summer with a beach-ready body.
, O2. Stay central -- Location, Location, Location. Try to find a hotel with a central location so you can walk to all your destinations. eDiets Direction of Nutrition Services Pamela Ofstein says this is a "great way to get some exercise and activity in while on vacation. This will get your body moving and gives you the opportunity to really 'see' and really 'take in' your surroundings -- not just drive by! Skip the cab or car ride when checking out the sites, and if you plan to go some place for a meal, try walking -- it gives you more time to talk and enjoy your friends and family."

3. Moderation -- Vacation is the best time to indulge! But don't overdo it. Try to have dessert every other night. Or why not split dessert? It cuts the calories in half! Pamela says "on vacation we tend to let our guard down a little. This should be a time of enjoyment and letting loose a little while still keeping your self on track. Choose your poison if you want to splurge a little -- go for something you normally don't eat (because of watching your calorie intake). I love dessert, so I often opt to skip or limit the bread to one small piece at dinner and enjoy a salad as an appetizer instead of appetizers high in calories and fat."

4. Cut back -- Alcohol and caffeinated beverages can be extremely dehydrating, especially in hot weather climates. You don't have to ban it, but don't binge it either. Pamela suggests "two cups a day or less. A good trick is to if you plan to have a cocktail or caffeinated beverage, have a cup of water for each one you consume; this will help keep you hydrated."

5. Bring breakfast -- Buy a bunch of bananas, bring yogurts or granola bars and have breakfast in your room. "Definitely start the day off with something to eat," Pamela says, "This will help you have energy to begin the day and help keep your metabolism going. Quick bites like bananas, yogurt, whole-wheat bagel, cereal bars are simple enough to have on hand and not fill you up with high fat, low-nutrient foods." Though the croissants and muffins at the continental breakfast are tempting, try to keep breakfast as healthy as possible.

6. Take a dip -- If your destination brings you close to a beach or a pool, take a dip and get some sun while you're at it! If swimming isn't your thing, take a stroll on the beach or play some beach volleyball.

7. Stretch it out -- Give yourself a quick stretch in the morning to get your muscles a head start for the day!

8. Get some green -- No, not money, but that would be nice. I meant vegetables! Order the small salad before your main meal to fill you up. Pamela reminds us to eat our veggies. "They can be some of your best friends by keeping you healthy! They are full of vitamins, minerals and anti-oxidants to keep your body healthy and keep your calorie intake within range -- not to mention all the great benefits of fiber."

9. Breathe -- Nothing is more beautiful than some peace and quiet and peace of mind. Meditate! Find a relaxing spot and start deep breathing.

10. Have fun -- Enjoy your vacation. Laughing does burn calories, you know.



As long as we keep trying, theres always hope !
