Stay Fit on Your Vacation
Leaving town for a summer get-away? If you’re not careful your trip will quickly turn into a fat trap.

I don’t want your fitness results to disappear before you return home. Keep reading for my 2 simple steps to avoid the dreaded vacation fat trap.

There are plenty of strategies and techniques out there for staying fit on vacation, but most are fairly complicated. I’m not going to give you a list of 27 things to remember in order to avoid those vacation pounds – you are getting away to relax, after all! I’ll keep this simple and effective.

The following 2 steps are all that you need to take with you on your vacation to ensure that you come back looking and feeling amazing.

Step #1: The 1/3 Rule

Most vacation pounds are gained as a result of constant indulgence. Each meal becomes an opportunity to eat your heart out to the tune of “I’m on vacation!”

Look, I get that you’re on vacation and want to enjoy the richer tastes of life, but doing so at every meal is going to do a lot of damage to your waistline.

Rather than indulging constantly, I want you to adopt the 1/3 Rule. This means that only 1/3 of your meals ought to be eaten with the mindset of “I’m on vacation.” At this one meal each day you are allowed to eat things that are normally off-limits. Enjoy your favorites and do so with no guilt.

At your other 2 meals each day you’ll keep things lean and green. Fill up on lots of greens, veggies, and lean proteins. Pass on the breads, grains, potatoes and anything with sugar. Drink water, and avoid beverages that contain calories.

Step #2: The Exercise Rule

This step is just as important as the first one, so don’t drop the ball on this one: Each and every day you must do some form of exercise.

Notice I said some form of exercise. I didn’t say that you had to go to a weight room to do a traditional workout. While on vacation, exercise should be diverse and exciting.

Your vacation activities can become your workout. Take a hike, go exploring on foot, swim in the ocean or bike through a foreign town. If you aren’t able to fit a vigorous activity into your day then start by doing this body weight routine:
  • 20 push ups
  • 30 seconds of jump squats
  • 20 walking lunges
  • 30 seconds of plank hold
  • 30 seconds of rest
  • Repeat from the top 3 times
Enjoy your vacation! And when you get back into town call or email me for a fitness and fat reduction consultation and I’ll show you a step-by-step plan for getting you the body that you deserve – in less time than you think.
Easy Baked Salmon
Salmon is filled with quality protein and omega-3 benefits, making it the perfect center of your healthy dinner. Serve your salmon on a bed of fresh or braised greens. Servings: 4

Here’s what you need…

For the salad:
  • ½ cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 ½ teaspoons ground coriander
  • 1 ½ teaspoons ground cumin
  • 4 (3oz) wild caught salmon fillets
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Coat a baking pan with nonstick spray and set aside.
  2. In a small bowl combine the yogurt, lime juice, and garlic. Put half of the yogurt mixture aside in the fridge. Coat the salmon with the other half of the yogurt mixture and marinate in the fridge for 30 minutes.
  3. Place the salmon on prepared pan and bake for 20 minutes. Turn on the high broil for an additional 5 minutes until the top of the salmon has browned.
  4. Serve the salmon on a bed of kale with a dollop of the reserved yogurt.

Be Excellent
The most important aspect in becoming and staying fit is to be persistent. You can exercise every day for a week, but if you follow that week with a month of no exercise then you’ve lost all ground. Find an exercise program that you are able to consistently do and then stick with it.

In the words of Aristotle, “We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.”
