Do All Vacations = Weight Gain?


Last night I sat on the couch and watched the Biggest Loser. I started to get jealous watching the contestants play in Hawaii. A little surfing, a little swimming, and a little tropical wants!

This weeks excuse was "I can't lose weight on vacation." It got me thinking a lot about past vacations. Most recently, I traveled to the Dominican Republic for Christmas. HM and I worked out on that vacation and the novelty of running through the gorgeous resort made the workout more fun.

With our vacation to Europe on the (distant) horizon, I started to think about how I could not only maintain weight, but lose weight on my trip. I will be in the land of bratwursts and beer after all. At least in the DR I could stick to a diet of watermelon, pineapple, and piyaya.

All bread there was nasty so I didn't eat much.
 That plate looks a lot healthier than what is waiting for me in September:
Bob Harper shared a workout that can be done anywhere, anytime, even on vacation. It included 5 rounds of 20 jumping jacks, 20 lunges (each leg), and 20 push-ups. HM and I have already talked about how we can workout while on vacation. I think we can do things like Bob's workout, city bike tours, lots of walking, and our 100 push up challenge that we plan to start again. Oh....and the many jumps it takes to get just the right souvenir photo!
