Hello there!! Welcome to the Getting in shape for Travel blog! I am soooo excited to be here!!
Let me start by telling you a little bit about myself. My name is Sue, and I am a moderator for the best Disney site on the Internet, PassPorter! My husband Steve and I are Disney Vacation Club owners, and we love to travel. I am a paramedic in my “other” life, and I have seen first hand what unhealthy eating and poor choices do for people. Steve and I try to maintain a somewhat healthy lifestyle, in fact he recently lost 40 pounds! I am very proud of him. I walk every October in the Susan G. Komen 3-Day for the cure, which is 60 miles in 3 days. So I try to train all year round for that. I love to hike, and I am an avid amateur photographer.
But enough about me, lets talk about YOU! You have come to this blog because you want to get in shape, or eat better, or learn how to make good choices. It doesn’t matter why you came here, the point is, YOU”RE HERE!!! 😀 I’m going to talk about many topics in this blog. We will have two main focuses: one will be getting prepared and in shape for travel, and the other will be healthy choices when you are travelling.
We’ll cover pre-vacation exercise, walking (a big part of any Walt Disney World vacation), planning your meals, healthy eating options both on vacation and at home, and how to avoid the excess that comes with vacations such as a cruise. We’ll also touch on health in general. I am by no means an expert, but I hope to be able to offer some great ideas and insights. And we’ll have fun here, too!!
Whatever your focus or goal is, I hope to cover it here! And please, feel free to suggest anything you may want to see in this blog. I am always open to suggestion, and I love to do research and learn about new things. So even if its something I’m not sure about, we’ll talk about it together!
So welcome aboard! Lets get this healthy party started!!!
