Whether it be for work or pleasure, we all love to get away!
Traveling provides us with new experiences, a sense of adventure and gives us time to relax and unwind.
However, while exciting and necessary, traveling can be extremely tough on the mind and body.
From delayed flights to missing luggage, and those few too many sangrias, returning back to the routine of our daily lives can often be a struggle too.
Below are a number of reasons why travel can be so tough and some suggestions on how you can minimize its impact:
It is more than possible to stick within our macros while away. However, we may choose to not track diligently and give our dieting a bit of a vacation too — which is totally fine. Just remember that it’s important to eat mindfully by loading up our plates with fresh high quality sources and doing our best to minimize alcohol consumption and foods we know will not fit our macros, such as cakes and fries.
While the impact of travel can’t be completely erased, it can be softened. The scale will bounce around and our expectations of progress for the weeks that follow must be adjusted, but to what extent will largely be determined by our choices. These strategies will not only affect our progress, but will also have an impact on how much we enjoy our trip and how quickly we bounce back upon returning home.
