Don’t let going on vacation distract you from your commitments. If you already have set goals, stick to them! Or, set a goal specifically for your vacation (“I will maintain my current weight”). Schedule days and times you’re going to work out and stick to it. Don’t let going on vacation ruin any of your progress!

Don’t forget to eat breakfast! It’s easy to get sidetracked on vacation, you may run out the door and forget to eat. Grab a piece of fruit or a granola bar; don’t let yourself go without eating your morning nutrients. After all, breakfast does jump start your metabolism.
Don’t Eat Out (every night)
One of the things we love about vacation… Tasting new foods, eating out at new restaurants, and dining in a new ambiance. Unfortunately, this could be detrimental to any fitness goals we may have. Now, I’m not saying you can’t eat out at all, but why not try staying in and cooking a few nights? Find a nearby grocery store, purchase healthy snacks and maybe a healthy meal or two.
