I have been in an health exercise challenge group for the past month and I'm about to go on vacation. While packing for my vacation, I came to the conclusion that pausing my routine might put me in a slump. Yes, I just want to veg out all day, but deep down I know that starting up again will be super hard. I am sure you can agree. All that sweating for the wedding you're doing, don't stop now. Instead of going on hiatus while on honeymoon/vacation, just follow our 5 easy tips that will keep you on track.
Before you scroll down, we must share a tid bit about the dreamy destination above. You are gazing at Mauritius, an Indian Ocean island nation. Known for its beaches, lagoons and reefs, it's a perfect honeymoon spot! Apparently there are rainforests, waterfalls, hiking trails and wildlife like the flying fox. Mauritius, we would love to come explore you and hang out in the ocean like Camps Bay Girl below.

Drink black coffee. Chances are you are going to be indulging in some lovely meals while on your honeymoon. A great way to cut a few calories for all that food is to switch from coffee with sugar and cream to black coffee.
If you did this every day for a year, you'd save more than 75,000 calories. It all adds up. Just a fun fact.

Plan your routine ahead of time. We know that you're exhausted from planning the wedding, and the last thing you want to do is organize a fitness routine. However, I guarantee that going in with a plan of attack well help you stay motivated. Usually I just pack my shoes and plan on hitting the hotel gym. Unfortunately I never make it down there. Why? Because I really don't have a plan.
Remember ... it's only a small portion of your day and can make a world of difference in the long run. I plan on alternating between a circuit workout and sprint intervals. Both workouts are below. You're welcome!
If you are new to sprint intervals, this is a great place to start. If you are already in tip top shape, we suggest adding more incline to your intervals instead of time.

Skinny up your cocktails! Recently on a girls weekend, one of my friends was mixing up her signature cocktail. Not only was it refreshing, but it had fewer calories than a Moscow Mule. Which has 320 calories by the way.
Here is how to order her signature skinny honeymoon cocktail while on your honeymoon. You'll find it to be delicious and again barely has any calories. You can drink 5 and not feel guilty. Just kidding, don't drink 5! Thanks Courtney!
Vodka, water, lots of squeezed limes (make sure you say lots of fresh limes) and a splash of coconut water (the coconut water gives it an added zing)
Vodka: 64 calories
Water: 0 calories
Limes: 0 calories
