Hi friends! I have arrived in London safe and sound… so happy to be here! I had this post ready to go before I left so just popping in to say hi and talk about how I am staying healthy while traveling — but not miss out on a thing.
Snacks: I never run errands without a bar in my purse so are you really surprised that I brought 20 bars overseas? I’m gone for about two weeks and while I will certainly be eating out for most meals, I packed a bunch of snacks and breakfast things.
In my suitcase: raisins, dates, nut butter, brown rice protein powder, plain instant oatmeal packs, almonds, cashews, Larabars and Simply Bars.
I packed convenient things that I can eat on-the-go. Breakfast at the hotel will typically be oatmeal so I’ll be sure to buy some bananas and apples while I’m here.
Water: I also packed my water bottle. I sometimes forget to drink as often when I’m traveling but I am going to try and drink as much as possible. I know it will help my digestion and keep me hydrated so I can feel energized to take on the day.
The only annoying part about drinking water: finding a bathroom.
Exercise: My favorite way to see new places is to walk — or run, which I’m hoping to do! Walking is my main form of exercise while travelling but I also brought my running gear. There are so many exercises that can be done in a hotel room. If I’m staying at a hotel with a gym then I will definitely take advantage of that too. I always try to exercise in the morning — by the end of the day, I’m too tired. Other than walking, which I’ll do everyday, I’ll workout when I feel like it. As long as I am moving everyday, I try not to stress about working out while traveling.
Balance: Yes I will eat healthy snacks, drink lots of water and stay active but I will certainly enjoy… because life is about balancing vodka and veggies.
And now I’m off to explore London. Be sure to check back tomorrow for a yummy recipe courtesy of Deryn. I am thinking of you and wishing you all a very wonderful day. Bye for now! xoxo
