But I’m here to tell you that it doesn’t have to be. I’ve been a professional travel writer for his 30+ years and have maintained a size 4 figure despite eating hundreds of heavy meals on the go and working a mountain of grueling work. have maintained. I am currently 67 years old. People always ask me how I do it. These are my strategies. If you want a better rear view, it definitely works.
First, wherever I am in the world, I try to exercise at least 20 minutes to an hour a day. Normally, I use the treadmills and machines in the hotel gym, but on the rare occasion that my hotel doesn’t have a fitness center, I do it in my hotel room. I always have at least a 20 minute Jane Fonda routine on the floor of my hotel room. It has been doing so since 1984. A combination of planks, sit-ups, sit-ups and more to improve blood circulation. to go. If you want to add aerobics to the mix, you can “do the motion” by marching on the spot or jumping rope without actually using a rope. I famously did this in an overwater bungalow in Bora Bora. And then I was in a tree house in Thailand and came back to my room at 11:00 at night. I noticed there were several steps down to the shower, so I did his aerobics step there. Where there is a will, there is a way.
I am very careful with my diet. Dinner is usually a beautiful fillet of fish, grilled dried vegetables (without oil) and baked potatoes, served with butter and salt. I tend to eat the same sort of things at lunch – a good source of protein, a little starch, and lots of vegetables. is either
Of course I treat myself. With Nutella crepes on the menu, you can match your calorie intake for the day. So are chocolate lava cake, cherry clafoutis, and carrot cake.
Speaking of carrot cake, if you’re traveling on a cruise, you’re really lucky when it comes to diet and exercise. In case you didn’t know, luxury cruise ships usually have a special requests department dedicated to your culinary preferences. Order the lobster thermidor. In fact, you can even ask them to make it with minimal butter and oil. Low-fat, gluten-free, kosher, vegan and more to suit all tastes.
When I’m on board, I make sure to meet with the Executive Chef to request any kind of special diet. My standard carrot cake request is to withhold the oil and replace it with yogurt frosting instead of pumpkin puree, raisins and walnuts, and cream cheese. It’s usually more delicious than full freight.
I’m not too picky, and I try to enjoy the cruise ship’s cuisine. If there is a mushroom tart on the menu, he will definitely take two bites and never eat the bread. Same goes for coconut shrimp.
And here’s another thing – I recently met a very sophisticated World Cruiser who always skips lunch. Instead, she brought ninja bullets and protein powder on board. provides her with berries and she mixes it into her lunch every day to lose weight.
I also eat between meals wisely. A handful of nuts, dried apples, raisins and crackers with roughing cow cheese. All of this can be found in your arsenal and carry-on luggage.
And I always wear shorts or a skort to the gym.
Skinny jeans are sure to look great when you’re out sightseeing.
