Fitness Sundays

Weight isn't something I usually talk about here, mainly because I have always been pretty ok with my size. Granted I do have my moments of just feeling like I was gross, but I think everyone goes through that no matter what size they are. Recently I have startet to feel a little more down about the way I look and feel, and I am not liking it one bit.

I think a lot of it comes from the fact that last summer Will and I got in the really wonderful groove of eating healthier and walking around the mountain every day for exercise. I lost a little weight, and most importantly Will and I both felt great almost all the time. However, since driving around the country for the documentary that routine has kind of gone out the window. With most of our trips taking well over 12 hours, the last thing you want to do is stop somewhere too long to get food, so it was usually fast food and gas stations. And once we got to our hotels we typically were way too exhausted from driving or running around getting interviews to hit the gym. We have been stuck in this kind of unhealthy rut and are just feeling bleh. 

So when I got an email from the people over at Revolt asking me if I wanted to be part of their twelve week blogger fitness program I felt like it was a sign to get back on track. I've never tried an online fitness program before, so I have no idea what to expect, I just hope it's something that I can stick with for the whole time. For the next twelve weeks I will be posting every Sunday hopefully about successes and any setbacks I might have.

I really hope I can get back on a healthier routine and make it stick even with all of our travels. What are your favorite healthy foods to eat while traveling?

Revolt did give me my membership for free but all my opinions, successes and any setbacks are my own.

  1. I loved to have dried fruit and nuts when I travel. It's so much better for me than chips.

  2. I've yet to find healthy travel snacks (chocolate is my unfortunate go to) but I just did a post on some healthy snacks I've been trying out! I think you hit it on the head though with this post...it's not about getting to the 'perfect size' (as if that actually exists anyway), it's about finding a routine of exercise and food that enables you to feel the best that you can. I recently started cycling to work and am loving how much more energised I feel!

  4. I usually don't eat healthy while I'm traveling. I find it really difficult to get in a routine. I'm currently on weight watchers and I find that it is helpful losing a few pounds. I really need to start exercising. I feel so out of shape and need to get moving again.

  5. Hummus and pitas all the way. When we lived up north it was a 6 hour drive home for holidays and hummus and pitas saved us big time! It is healthy but very filling.

  7. What a fabulous idea! Road trips and too much work are enemies of a healthy life, that's for sure. I can wait to read your sucess posts!

  8. I agree with everyone above! Nuts, hummus and pita, dried fruit, things like that. I really like Trader Joe's trail mix and sugar snap peas. It is harder on the road though.

    ...Also I really relate to that photo. I've been trying SO HARD to make them last but it's not working.
