There was so much food and so many desserts, I'm not sure I was hungry at all last week.
I think key lime pie is my favorite, I had that three separate times.
That's how a family vacation should go: food, fun, and no remorse.
Of course I had to see how bad the damage was when I got home: 7lbs, so not too bad. Most of that is water retention, so I'll likely undo the damage within a week or two.
But this was a family vacation, I planned for this. If I were traveling for work, I would likely make different choices.
In that situation, I wouldn't want to 'undo' any progress that I've made - but instead to keep making progress while I'm on my trip.
That's what I call 'going all in' when traveling.
All-in on your food, workouts, and consistency.
It takes a stronger willpower than staying home and sticking to your normal routine, but it's completely doable.
I've even run through the airport carrying all of my food before, just barely making my flight. That's when I was dieting for a bodybuilding show and the options to 'go off' didn't exist. I just made it work.
Here's a few tips to go 'all in' on your trips when you're dieting:
1. Stay at a hotel with a kitchen. These are your extended stays or suites types of hotels. You get a full size fridge, stove, microwave, and everything you need to cook and prepare your meals.
2. Keep it simple. If you focus too much on flavor and variety on this trip, you're going to be in trouble. Stick to the easy things. Use tuna packets, pre-cooked chicken (when available), hard-boiled eggs, and protein powder for your protein shakes.
3. Find a local gym. Set up a day or week pass with a local gym - plan your hotel around the local gyms if possible to make this easy. Worst case scenario - use your hotel gym. It's not perfect, but you can get a workout in most of them no problem.
4. Pre-pack your supplements. Use ziploc baggies and plan out all of your supplements that you use, separating them or combining them as possible. I mixed Isothority and Greens Factor in one baggie on this last trip and drank it every evening.
I really can't point to anything that's consistently helped me digestion as much as Greens Factor. It's a no-brainer when traveling and introducing new foods into the equation. My stomach feels so much better and any problems don't stick around long.
If you haven't tried Greens Factor yet, this is your sign.
Greens Factor isn't some wimpy dosed greens product parading around as high quality - it's the real deal.
14g+ of superfoods, greens, and enzymes. Plus 4 Billion CFU of probiotics.
It'll keep you regular (that's nice talk for having enjoyable poops), and provide missing nutrients for your diet.
The fiber, enzymes, and probiotics keep things moving along so you don't get 'backed up' while you're out of town - which was a life saver for me this last week with all the junk that ate.
