Why do vacations fly by? As the plane screams to a stop on the way home from a trip, your mind instantly morphs from vacation to work mode.

And you may have a flashback or two of all the food indulgences that go along with vacation.

I mean, after all, it’s vacation. We try new, exciting foods and if you’re like me, that promise of exercising every day never quite becomes a reality.

Now that it’s time to say hello to the real world, hold on to those precious vacation memories and use these 7 Easy Steps to Get Healthy After Vacation.

It’s best to unpack as soon as possible in order to get back into your healthier pre-vacation routine. Gazing at a suitcase filled with dirty clothing is not the way to get motivated.

Move it

Get Healthy After Vacation

Find ways to move more and sit less! 

  • Wear a fitness tracker. It always helps me get in more steps!
  • When I go to Walmart, instead of searching for the closest parking spot, I park farther away to get a few extra steps in.
  • While I’m cooking, I do calf raises and alternate with push-ups using the edge of the kitchen counter. This is also a good time to do a few squats.
  • Jumping jacks or squats during commercials are also ways to move more throughout the day.

Buy it

Buy groceries right away. The longer you put it off, the stronger the temptation will be to eat like you’re still on vacation.

Don’t shop when you’re hungry and shop on the perimeter of the store for the most part. That’s where you find fresh produce, whole foods, etc.

Eat it

Stock up on fresh veggies and fruit. When you have healthy food options available, making good food choices becomes easy peasy.

Trade it

Trade those candy bars for smarter choices. ZonePerfect® Cinnamon Roll is a smart option when it comes to an afternoon snack.

I also keep ZonePerfect® bars in my purse in case I’m out and about during snack time. It’s a delicious way to make healthier choices throughout my day.
