Vacation recovery plan
So you went away, saw a new part of the world, and now you’re back. You ate, you drank, you relaxed, and then you ate some more.
And now it’s time to face the music.
As you wake up on Monday morning after your week of less-than-healthy eating… Your body is puffy and bloated. Your joints are achy. Your clothes feel tight.
Maybe you are feeling that way right now.
Here are 5 steps to recovering from your vacation and getting back on track with your fitness goals:
Step One: Focus
Your vacation happened. You ate things from the “never eat these” list, you drank more that you should have…but now it’s over.
Draw a line in the sand. You’re back home so the bad eating stops now.
If you’re serious about your fitness goals, then your vacation was the exception, and not the rule. Don’t beat yourself up for letting loose on your trip. Simply get back up, dust yourself off and get focused.
Step Two: Hydrate
While travel days can take on many forms, the end result is most often dehydration and water retention. The only way to restore your balance is to get hydrated.
Your first priority in getting back on track is to drink plenty of water throughout your first few days home. Start with a tall glass of water in the morning, and carry a water bottle with you to sip throughout the day.
Don’t add any artificial sweeteners or stimulants to your water – these will sabotage your hydration efforts. For flavor, add sliced fresh fruit, herbs or vegetables to your water, just like at the spa.
Step Three: Cleanse
For your first few days home I need you to be extra picky about what you eat. Stick with only whole, real foods like fruits, vegetables and lean meats. Whole, real foods will help to restore balance and block out cravings.
Don’t eat any packaged foods for the next few days. This means no snack foods, processed meat slices, dairy, baked goods or alcohol.
Try the recipe for Quick Chicken Stir Fry below – this is a wonderful, whole food dish.
Step Four: Rest
As relaxing as vacation days are, most end with the feeling of exhaustion. Make catching up on sleep a priority over the next few days.
When your body is low on sleep, it becomes easier to make poor eating choices. You’re also less likely to get back into your workouts if you don’t give your body a chance to rest.
Aim for getting a full 8 hours of sleep each night.
Step Five: Exercise
It’s time to sweat out all those vacation indulgences. So lace up your athletic shoes and put on your favorite gym clothes. When you start your first workout, ease in slowly. Take the time to warm up and stretch your muscles before powering up to a solid 30-minute routine.
I have just the exercise plan for you – one that will not only help you recover from your vacation but will help keep you motivated and going strong in the future.
If you haven’t joined yet, now is the perfect time for you to start. Together we will get you to your goals with my results-driven method.
Simply call or email me today to set up your first workout.
Get Back At It
You may feel tempted to skip your workout the day after you return home from vacation, but be warned that it’s a slippery slope. After all you’re tired, you have unpacking to do and you’re stiff from the ride home. That day slides into the next day and the next day. Before you know it you’ve been home for a week and still haven’t gotten in a workout.
Jump into your workouts immediately once you return home. Sure, you’re going to feel a little rusty on that first day back, but remember that the sooner you get back into the swing of your routine the better. You can do it!
Quick Chicken Stir Fry
Resist the temptation to eat out by making quick, healthy dinners like this one. Chicken and veggies make up the bulk of this meal, keeping you lean and green. Instead of rice, serve this stir fry over a cauliflower rice. To make simply run a head of cauliflower through a food processor with the grating attachment, so that it is finely shredded. Sauté the cauliflower in a large skillet, with a teaspoon of olive oil, until soft. Season with salt and pepper.

LADIES OF ADVENTURE BOOT CAMP SPEAK....
"I ABSOLUTELY LOVE bootcamp. The workouts are fun which is great b/c I am one of those people who needs a coach to kick my arse in gear. Stacy is really supportive and motivating. I had no idea when I was signing up for this just exactly what I was going to get from it. I can already start to see the benefits." -Danielle
"Bootcamp was great! It was a lot of fun to do the circuits in teams. I've actually found it pretty easy to get up, bootcamp feels more like fun than work (except for the sore muscles!)" -Elizabeth
"After starting Adventure Boot Camp I do not feel as fatigued as I usually did before beginning the sessions. I go out for long walks now and my husband has to struggle to keep up with me! I actually wake up at 4 am without an alarm ready to go to camp (insane, I know, who would of thought!)" -Marisol
When you are on the treadmill don’t hold on. If you hold on while walking or jogging, it decreases the intensity, which decreases your calorie burn by up to 24 percent.
