when on vacation I will give myself a LITTLE leeway but gen still treat life as normal
yes we only have one life and should enjoy it ..... but I find when I am eating junk not exercising and drinking too much I dont enjoy my time bc I feel like SHIT
Depends on what is available & how my time is being spent. I was recently in Miami Beach and went to a local Gold's a couple times. But it was so flippin' hot in there for us "cool Nor Cal'ers", half the workout was just from standing in the humidity. After that I just stopped worrying about it enjoyed the sun & frosty drinks w/ umbrellas. I figure hoofing it up & down Ocean Drive in 98 degree weather counts as cardio.
I do some training in the morning (bodyweight exercises and cardio) , eat a clean breakfast, and then eat whatever I want the rest of the day. I'll skip the cardio if the vacation involves hiking or something similiar.
I had a vacation recently and while everyone else was sleeping in till 9 or so I was waking up around 6 and getting in two healthy meals before we all went out for the day. I would pack a blender bottle with some whey and a little bag of almonds and snack on those. I would eat what I wanted for lunch and we cooked dinner every night so I'd have whatever was made for dinner. I also enjoyed myself and had beer and margaritas. You don't have to completely abandon your healthy lifestyle but enjoy yourself because before you know it you will be right back to reality and eating clean all the time. Just my .02 cents, aint worth much.
Oh and as far as training, I didn't do anything. There was actually a rinky dink gym I considered going to but decided to give my body a rest for a week and it definitely felt great. I felt rejuvinated, fresh, and strong when I got home.
I will Fedex enough protein and vitamins to make sure I can supplement inbetween meals as needed. I will also stock the mini fridge with milk. I have never been to a resort that didn't have a decent gym before, but I can't stop training!!!!!!
When I'm on vacation, that's usually one week that I don't care. Sometimes if I'm eating seafood I'll do grilled or baked but I mainly eat fried seafood. I spend the days drinking and having a good time. I usually gain 3-5lbs. while on vacation.
