6 Tips For Staying Healthy On Trips

I know this may seem hard, but you'll thank me later.


If you have ever tried dieting while traveling, then you know it can be difficult, especially when there is so much good food out there. We have to stay strong. We cannot indulge in the sweets and carbs. We cannot take time off from the gym. We know that this summer bod took a lot of hard work and when I say a lot, I mean A LOT. From the hours in the gym to the healthy eating, the avoidance of carbs and sweets, we want a break. WE DESERVE A BREAK! But, we shouldn't take a break from that hard work.

Here are a few tips and tricks for staying healthy whilst in another state or country.

1. Moderation

Moderation is key. You've probably heard this a lot, but it is very true. You can indulge in dessert, but try your best to eat healthy during the day. Healthy food can be tasty and satisfying, and if you do eat unhealthy try to eat in smaller portions. Don't overeat!

2. Eat right

We tend to crave the unhealthy food while on vacation. We think, "Oh, these are negative calories" or "I'll work it off when I get home," however that's never the case. Try eating foods that are easier on the stomach, because we don't want to be bloated when taking those bikini pics. Protein (chicken or turkey) is easy on the stomach and won't make you feel bloated. It's also very filling.

3. Work, work, work

Try to workout! Swim, dance, walk around. Do fun activities and keep your body moving!

4. Walk it like I talk it

Walking is one of the easiest cardios there is. Go sightseeing or go for a walk on the beach.

5. Water, water, water

Water is key. Water is everything. Water is life.

Bloated? Water. Hungry and you just ate? Water. Wanna glow? Water. Want clear skin? Water. Dehydrated? Water. Water keeps us going and helps us look bomb. Drink up, boo.

6. No stress zone

Lastly, don't stress over gaining weight or that one bad meal you had. It takes more than one meal to gain a pound. Have fun! Soak up the sun!

Summer is hot and humid, and it's almost like summer was made specifically to drink the refreshing, cold, crisp wonderful, delicious, nutritious nectar of the gods.

And if you haven't already guessed, it's beer. There are few things I take more seriously than my beer, in order are: sports... and beer. Here are my favorite summer brews:

Bruce Springsteen's Top 7 Lyrics

Everything Bruce says in his classic rock songs.

Anyone who was born and raised in New Jersey (or anywhere really) knows of Bruce Springsteen, whether or not they like him is a whole other situation. I hope that his hundreds of classic rock songs and famous high energy performances, even in his sixties he can put on better concerts than people half his age, are at least recognizable to people of all ages. Love him or hate him (I identify with the former) you have to admit that some of his songs and interviews have inspirational quotes and lyrics.

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire.

One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.
