A Holiday With A Difference

A Holiday With A Difference Do you have any friends that are looking to lose weight after Christmas? I know I am, After a week of feasting on tasty food and snacks and drinking too much, my willpower to try and lose weight has subsided. Months before Christmas I had started eating healthily and exercising I actually reached an impressive goal of losing 2 stone. But I just knew that once December hit I would likely be in the boat of putting half of that back on again.

Winter is a terrible time for exercise, I like to do mine outdoors and the cold weather definitely puts me off. I enjoyed taking long bike rides when the sun was out and the warm weather was hitting me , now I have to face months of cold and rain. An alternative that may help you could be taking a trip to one of these new fangled health resorts. Some are fully fledged fat camps, some are yoga retreats or even detox retreats.

If you could get your friends to come along for a holiday away in one of these facilities, you may find losing weight to be a lot easier than before. Willpower is a huge aspect to whether or not you can maintain weight loss, one problem is that once you have succeeded in losing weight, keeping that weight off could be difficult unless you make sure you keep up the work. Falling behind in exercise might make you put on all of that weight again without you even realizing.

Home or Away?

Taking a trip away is always a nice prospect, but where do you go? What do you do? Everyone is different, some people like one thing whilst others will like another and this is something that defines how we live our lives. A lot of people like to go away for holidays in boiling hot countries and get themselves a nice brown suntan, others like to just have nice getaway to a Bude B&B or other small and cosy hotel just for a cheap holiday.

Neither of these people are wrong, taste is subjective and I could have fun on either one of these holidays, I would definitely not turn it down. I’ve been to various places around England and found you can generally have a great time, fun is not limited to foreign countries and the only real difference is the climate and culture. England has a great history and you can find some fantastic ruins of castles and other interesting structures, Britain’s rich history is one of the reasons I enjoy taking some of my holidays in this country.

I will be going abroad later this year and really look forward to it, but some people just aren’t into that kind of thing.
