Prepare Prior to Spring Break Trips to Prevent Unwanted Gains

March 24, 2014

With Spring Break coming soon, there will be plenty of party plans on itineraries around the world and while that could always mean people breaking their healthy eating habits, it doesn’t necessarily have to. So many people think that since they are going on spring break that there will be no way to keep up and that they will be gaining weight throughout their duration there. There are ways to prevent breaking off from the healthy routine and making sure that you can still get in everything you want while on vacation.

The first thought that everyone has when it comes to spring break and what they will be consuming is alcohol which is the same for nearly all of those participating in the activities. Let’s face it: spring break is one big party and drinking is a large portion of what partying is for those that go on vacation during this time to get away from school or just for their vacation. Know what kind of alcohol effects you most in negative ways — in terms of healthy eating — and try to stay away from consuming that drink.

When most people drink, they also couple that with eating large portions of junk food that will most definitely have an effect on a person’s healthy eating habits and will be sure to add to some gained weight over the spring break. Even though you may be drinking during this time, you’ll want to try your hardest to keep these foods away and still try and focus on a balanced diet to get you through the break without gaining that unwanted weight. Keeping weight down has a lot to do with what it is you eat, so being sure to keep the unhealthy food associated with alcohol out of your system will go a long way in keeping everything in order.

Finally, because you know you’ll be partying — which is mostly in the night to the early morning — finding some time to get your regular workout regimen in could be a great idea. Sure, you may be tired from the night before, but if you want to keep the weight down on this time off, plan ahead and map out the gyms or workout areas close to where you are staying in order to make the most out of your time. Chances are, the hotel you’re staying at will have some kind of fitness center that you can make use of and enjoy a good workout before another night of fun.

These are just a few ways to help keep your weight in check as you enjoy your party time on spring break.
