I spent the last week away from home (if you saw my Facebook status you know I was on a school trip with 100 5th graders – fun).Â The trip was fun, but while I was away for those four days I did not have the access to good food or the gym. AHHHH….what to do?
This is a common problem many people face when it comes to vacation or travelling away from home. You don’t always have access to a gym and you don’t always have access to food that you would normally eat on your flat stomach diet.
So instead of freaking out I kept in mind my three tips for traveling away from home….tips that you can keep in mind on your next business trip or vacation and not stray off the path to your flat stomach.
Tip #1 – Take a few days off from the gym
If you don’t travel often and this is just a quick trip away from home then make those few days your rest days.Â Â If you are on vacation – it’s time to relax – not worry about whether or not you can get to the gym. Your body will appreciate the rest when you get home. Your muscles will be recovered and you’ll be ready to go when you get back.
However, if you’re really concerned with your workout routine – go for a walk or a run. Maybe take a hike or rent a bike if you can. Try a different form of exercise than those you are used too. Your body will still be burning calories and you will come home guilt free Â because you didn’t miss all of your workouts.
Tip #2 – Watch what you eat
Since you are going to be eating out a lot while out of town – try going for those â€˜healthier’ options. Stay away from the French fries if you have the options of veggies with dinner. Try a salad with the dressing on the side and stay away from too much fried food.Â Don’t clean your plate either – we all know that restaurant portion sizes are way too much to eat anyways – so enjoy good food, but not a clean plate.
Tip #3 – Pack your meals before you go
If it’s a quick trip and you really don’t want to tempt yourself with the options of going off of your flat stomach diet – then prepare for the trip. Pack some protein powder, peanut butter, oatmeal and some healthy snacks. Maybe even pre-cook some chicken for the road if the travel time isn’t too long and get a fridge to store the food in when you get to the hotel. I’ve done this before when I went away for a quick trip and didn’t want to stray off of my diet.Â It worked well and when I got back home I was ready to get back down to business on my flat stomach goals.
So, next time your job or your life takes you away from home – don’t stress out about what’s going to happen with your flat stomach workout.Â Instead enjoy the trip by taking a few days off, being extra careful with what you eat or pack your meals so you know what you’re going to eat. But above all – don’t stress about missing a day from your routine, traveling is stressful enough. Instead, enjoy your trip and know in a few days time you’ll be back home and kicking butt on your flat stomach workout.
