First, here are some tips to keep moving WHILE you are sightseeing...
- Take the stairs instead of the escalators. Yes, you may be the only one on the stairs,, but do it anyway. It is an opportunity to increase your heart rate, increase your blood flow and burn a few calories.
- Walk instead of taking a cab. Now, I know there are times when a cab is a must, but if you are just traveling from Harrods to Buckingham Palace, take a stroll. Much better for you and you can see more of the city!
- Share a meal. When you dine out, order one entree and share. Yes, I said share!
- Order a salad and appetizers. These are usually smaller proportions and you have the opportunity to try several different foods instead of one plate with loads of one type of food!
I hope these tips help you stay healthy and fit on your holiday. They have definitely helped me while over here across the pond!
