I’ve told a lot of people about how much I think nutrition tracking is important and there seem to be two kinds of response. The first is interest and a willingness to ask questions or even give it a try. The second, the more common one, is to look doubtful and decide that it’s too much of a pain to do. I’ve tried to talk about how easy nutrition tracking is when you have the right app. I have a Fitbit, but I find using that app to track nutrition is about as much fun as a root canal. Fortunately, there are a lot of other apps that connect with the Fitbit app so I can keep my fitness and nutrition log all in one place. I’m currently using SparkPeople, but I’ve also successfully used MyFitnessPal.
I’ve been sticking to the same kind of nutrient-dense diet for quite some time, and it’s really working for me. Sure, I get the occasional junk food in there, and the holidays are always hard on me, but overall, I’m eating great. The funny thing is that a lot of people judge my meals as being boring. They assume I’m sacrificing a lot in what I’m eating so that I can reach my physical goals. Not true!
I’ve been exercising every day for some time now. There are very few days I’ll miss. If I do, they’re mainly holidays or if I’m down with a cold. Not all workouts are a high intensity sweat sesh. Regardless of what the workout happens to be, I’m dedicated to exercising every day. Every. Single. Day. What I thought I’d learn from doing it is how to get the most out of my body. I thought I’d learn how to improve my performance and streamline my path to my results. Once I started thinking about it, though, I’ve learned a lot more. This habit has been eye opening for me over the years.
After the great trip Bree and I had, I thought I’d share an example of a Mexico couples getaway itinerary for a perfect day on vacation. Riviera Nayarit is the perfect part of the country to feel safe, still have your privacy, and get the experience of the real country as opposed to the resort feel that is specially designed for tourists. I’m not saying that there’s anything bad about resorts. I’ve gone to resorts that have been fantastic. But for this Mexico couples getaway itinerary, it’s more for those of us who prefer to rent a luxury villa or stay at a hotel more off the beaten trail. We chose one in a gated community in one of the safest parts of the country. It was right on the ocean and was everything you want from a dream romantic vacation.
