You may have spent hours in the gym in order to look good in that teeny-weeny bikini, but all that hard work may be wasted as soon as you leave the office to go on holiday. It’s no surprise that many people find they’ve put on weight after their break. Once the ‘holiday mentality’ kicks in, you may find yourself eating unhealthily or cutting back on exercise. However, there’s no need to let all that workout time go to waste. Here are some simple tips to keep the pounds from piling up.
Look for healthy options at the airport. The fast food available at airports may help fill you up before your flight, but many choices can be highly calorific. Skip that burger and chips, and opt for a sandwich instead. Even a seemingly innocuous latte can be surprisingly high in calories.
Walk around. It can be tempting to hop into a cheap taxi or hire a car to take you around, but it won’t keep the holiday weight off. Bring along some good walking shoes, and explore the place on foot instead. You’ll also be able to see much more of your destination this way. Some cities are also bicycle-friendly, so rent a bike from the nearest outlet and start zooming around while getting a good workout at the same time!
These easy tips may not help transform you into a triathlete, but at least you won’t have to give up the yummy local dishes for fear of piling on the pounds.
