Indoors: Have 10 minutes when you first get up in your hotel room? Try 5 rounds of the following: 15 squats, 10 situps, 5 pushups.
Outdoors: Wanna go explore the local terrain of your vacation destination? Try the Lamppost Workout: Walk/Jog until you get to a lamppost and do 10 squats. Run/Sprint to the next lamppost and then do 10 pushups (ground, curb, step, wall…whatever is available). Alternate high intensity (run/sprint) and low intensity (walk/jog) cardio for 6 consecutive lampposts doing the following strength building exercises: 20 jumping jacks, 10 lunges, 10 burpees, 10 step ups (when you find a step) or high knees. Then head back the way you came doing the last strength set at your home destination.
When you are heading out for your various excursions take a few bags of nuts, a couple pieces of fruit or a whole food bar to help curb the temptations. Once you have a tummy with substance inside it’ll be much easier to resist or to have less of what you might otherwise gobble up.
