GLOBE-TROTTING WITHOUT GAINING
WALK IT OUT
Get in some sort of exercise any way you can. You may not be able to find a Barre Class or F45 in downtown Mykonos (and you may projectile vomit if you tried) so go easy. Walk it off, take a dip and sweat it out! While spending 2 weeks in Mexico and living off chips, guac and margaritas for breakfast, a dear friend shared her weight management strategy…The “Sweat Diet” where spending hours in the glorious Puerto Vallarta sun helped a treat! Never would I stand between a gal and her guac!
DON’T WAIT TILL YOU’RE STARVING
Being a little fussy (which I’ve been known to be) meant that it’s not always easy to agree on a lunch spot or pop into the closest café. More so, when you spend the day visiting Monet’s incredible garden and home in Giverny from Paris and go without food – it’s not ideal. FYI, this resulted in the solo consumption of a large margarita pizza. I loved every minute. My stomach did not.
Take snacks! Do not go 6, 7, 8 hours between meals leaving you, shall we say #hangry AF. It doesn’t make you a good travel companion by any means, and on top of this, it sets your metabolism in meltdown. This will also allow you to try a place on your well-researched list rather than settle for the most convenient.
