When going on vacation it is important that you maintain what you have accomplished during your regular routine at home. The first thing to remember is you should always put yourself first. Everyone can wait for you to take care of you. There are 24 hours in a day. 1 hour of the day can set aside for you. The world can wait. What is the rush? My point here is stay on track during vacation. This way when you resume with your trainer coming off vacation you do not have to start at square one again. Stay focused, dedicated and committed to yourself. You'll feel so much better after returning from a healthy vacation than you would from a traditional one where you might gorge on food and not exercise at all.
Proper nutrition can be hard. Some people have certain medical conditions that do not allow for a fast metabolism. Try to avoid foods with lots of sugar and salt. Drink more water. Fresh fruits, vegetables, lean meats, whole grains, low fat items are better for you. Like the saying, "think before you speak," Think before you eat. It is the same here. Just do it.
Anyone of all ages and all medical conditions should work out. It is the most important aspect of life. Be sure to get clearance from your doctor on the type of workout that suits you best.
