Indulge, Don’t Bulge!

I know it's easy to indulge (and therefore bulge) when you're on a cruise! Like you, I love to "pig out" at the buffet on a cruise, so I'm not
going to be a hypocrite and tell you NOT to eat.

I've been cruising for more than 20 years and here is my #1 tip so I don't come home weighing more than the ship: "Add, don't subtract!" ADD more movement!

How can you do that?

1. Don't use the elevator AT ALL. Take the stairs! Walk to all your meals and daily activities. No elevators!

2. Take a 30-minute walk before breakfast–every day!  (Sorry, your walking tour doesn't count toward this, LOL.)

3.  Don't stop your regular exercise routine just because you're on vacation.

4.  Walk the deck–not just forwards, but backwards and sideways. Add some squats, too.  (Bring a friend so you don't look ridiculous.) 

5. When you're grazing those incredible buffets, look for foods that aren't fried or swimming in oil.  Choose salads that don't have mayo-based dressings and foods that aren't coated with layers of batter.

Want more tips from me about cruising? This week I was interviewed on BlogTalkRadio by TV travel host Marie O'Mara, who is also Chief Romance Officer (yes, that's really her title!) for

Marie asked me how not to gain a size when you go on a cruise–and other tips for staying fit while still enjoying that midnight chocolate buffet, LOL.
