Let’s be honest; when people go on vacation they tend to gain weight. It just goes with the territory of being out of your normal routine and the idea that a vacation is a break. And when people are on a break, they want a break from caring about what they eat, they want to have fun and relax! Plus, calories you eat when out of your normal routine don’t count right? You know what else doesn’t count? Eating over the sink and off of my kids’ plates. Full-fat mac & cheese is perfectly acceptable when it’s made for the twins even if I’m the one who ultimately eats it. It’s what I tell myself, but it’s also the reason I spend so much time in loose fitting pants. They help with the denial.
As far as vacations go though, a cruise seems like a recipe for weight gain. All that drifting around on the high seas, lounging by the pool, and extra whip on your brownie sundae can’t help but lead to a few extra pounds by the time you dock right? Well, I want to go on a cruise really badly but I don’t want to come home needing another getaway to a weight loss spa, so I consulted with a friend, who is sort of a cruise expert, for suggestions on how to not return from my trip with extra baggage.
Go ahead and peruse these suggestions and then please leave one of your own in the comments!
