Here are some great tips to help you keep in great shape and continue to burn fat while you are on the road with your job or just taking a long weekend away with your family.
Just because you are away from home, does not mean that your body, or rather your physique wants to take one as well. It’s really important to keep up the fitness/nutrition plan you regularly follow while you’re on the road, because your body is used to this level of metabolism.
Once you start messing around with your metabolism, it usually drops, your body gets stressed, and guess what happens? Your brain sends out signals to release cortisol, the stress hormone. The main function of this hormone is to protect cells, and it will usually do that by collecting fat (as well as other cells). This is why when you’re anxious, depressed or when you miss workouts and meal times, you start to gain fat.
What you should be doing is, doing your absolute best to maintain your metabolism, by eating correctly and exercising as regularly as you possibly can. This way your body will burn more calories and fat, you will stay lean and muscular and your brain won’t be firing off dumb messages to the rest of your body.
Hey, if you’re travelling by car the chances are that you will be able to include some fitness equipment in your luggage. Most stair steppers these days are portable and lightweight enough, that you can simply fold them down and pack them in your trunk.
- Always have a cooler bag or box with you.
- Always order healthy food in your hotel.
- Don’t forget your goals.
