Tips for staying healthy when traveling or moving to a new town

By Angela Young

 

While moving to a new town can be extremely exciting, it can also raise many questions and worries for someone trying to watch their waistline.  Long trips across the country, hours in airports, and eating on the go may all be a part of the journey.  In your new town, the new Italian restaurant you are just dying to try calls out your name each night. Networking or meeting new people may be centered on having a few drinks together. Even the weather change could put a twist on your typical workout routine.  Here’s a few ways to enjoy your travels and your new locale while maintaining your healthy ways.

 

First off, let’s discuss the journey to your new town. Whether renting a U-Haul and trekking across the country or hopping from airport to airport is necessary, preparation is key. In the car you have many more options for packing food and drinks.  Turkey sandwiches on wheat bread, salads, fruit, veggies and low-calorie drinks can keep you fueled for hours behind the wheel. When flying, pack mixed nuts, fruit that doesn’t bruise easily, and a healthy granola or protein bar. Ask for two waters from the flight attendant. If you have to grab a meal at one of the airport counters, smoothie stands or delis with wraps and salads are a wise option.

 

Second, new foods, new grocery stores, and new restaurants are calling your name. Before your move, make a list of the staples on your current grocery list and when you move, try not to completely stray from it. Stick to your staples, such as fresh produce, proteins, and whole grains, but don’t be afraid to sprinkle in a new hummus or brown rice sushi roll if that’s what the locals are doing. 

 

When it comes to dining out or cocktails with new neighbors, try to stick to one or two of these events a week.  You don’t have to meet everyone all at once, and take your time getting settled in.  If you ate out once a week in your hometown, eat out once a week in your new town. 

 

Don’t forget to research local gyms before you leave if the weather may be too hot or cold. Search on the Internet for nearby parks for jogging, that way when you get to your destination, you have a plan.

 

Overall, enjoy your new culture and you will get on schedule in just weeks.
