5 Perfect Travel Workouts | This Miss Cooks

I’m going to assume you don’t need me to remind you that you can usually lace up those sneakers and go on a run while on vacation if that’s your thing. I honestly have a hard time running routes I’ve never been on before, so I put together a list of workouts that I can do without packing my entire home gym. You might also notice that none of these workouts are terribly long, either.

This week has become filled suddenly with dinners out at our wedding venue, re-testing a few recipes from last week before they go up on the blog, and a family vacation over Labor Day weekend to the Oregon Coast. Work in my lab has picked up a bit as well, so I’m heading to the rental house a few days after my fiancé.

One struggle I know many of my friends in the wellness world have is striking a balance with food and fitness that makes them happiest on vacations. Instead of a menu plan this week, I thought I might share some of the tips I use to maintain my health without ruining the whole idea of a vacation in the first place.
