Wow, it’s been over a month since I last posted a blog. Time really does fly when you are having fun. As you probably know, I travel a lot. So of course I get asked all the time “Dave, how do you stay so fit and healthy being on the road so much?” Well here are my answers.
I am always prepared. Airlines no longer feed you real food. What they generally offer are offer carb loaded snacks. And they charge an arm and a leg for them! So I pack my own. I always have fruit, nuts, and an energy bar in my carry on with me. If it’s a longer flight, I make sure I have a healthy sandwich with me to make sure I keep up my eating routine.
I take my running shoes and workout clothes with me everywhere I go. There is nothing like a sunrise walk around a new city, or a barefoot run on a sandy beach.
I make sure to find a good place for healthy Asian food where ever I am. If the buffet is the only option, then I head for the salad bar and the carving station. I avoid the pasta bar and dessert area. And I am never tempted to go back for seconds. I can find healthy food almost anywhere.
I make sure I have plenty of bottled water with me at all times as well. I actually usually carry my own Nalgene bottle that I fill up at home.
Sure, life on the road can be a challenge, but it’s also a great way to experience this amazing country. If you always make food and exercise a priority, you will live a great healthy life!
