Have fun

I hope you've enjoyed my tips the last few days. However, the last thing I’m suggesting is taking the fun out of your holiday. I’ll be off to Spain soon and am certainly going to have a fantastic time sampling the local food and tipples. I’m a big fan of vintage cava, fino and jamon.

You work hard, and you deserve a break where you get to do the things you want to do. But I'll also be swimming each day, walking the shoreline and doing a few stretches, as well as working on my tan.

However, no matter how good a time you have on holiday, you’ll feel worse if you arrive home overweight and in an alcohol fuelled fog - a world away from your health and fitness goals.

Remember how you felt after Christmas – do you want to be there again?

What will also help is a change in mindset. Don’t look at your holidays as simply a free for all 2-week food and drink fest. Spending quality time with your family and friends is what makes a holiday special, not the amount of food or drink you consume. You can still have a great holiday, without derailing your health and fitness progress.
