How To Stay Fit On A Holiday (Without Sacrificing Fun!) – No Sweat: EP23
Hey guys, it’s Tyen. So for a lot of people,
it takes a lot of effort for them to start
getting into a fitness routine.
And once they have that momentum, it can be
very frustrating if they had to stop.
And a lot of times I find that when people
go on vacation,
they kind of lose that momentum because they
want to indulge,
you know, they kind of fall off their fitness
routine because working out is kind of
one of the last things you want to do.
I’m not saying it’s bad to indulge but when
you get home,
what happens is that because you’ve lost that
and you’ve lost that momentum, it’s very difficult
for you to kind of get back into the swing of things.
So I’m currently on a solo trip in the US
and I’m here because I have been working the
entire year without a break
and I’ve been juggling three jobs and school.
So I do think that I need a little breather
which is why I’m here exploring
and giving myself a treat.
So in today’s video, I’m going to show you
how I personally modify my fitness routine
so that I can enjoy and indulge during my
holiday, yet not fall off the bandwagon.
Morning, we are now walking to get coffee,
we just came to New York yesterday,
Today, we are going to Brooklyn for this huge
food festival called Smorgasburg.
There’s a lot of interesting food and we’re
going to eat so much.
I think my goal for today, in order for me
not to feel so guilty, is
make sure we clock in at least 10,000-15,000
To make sure that when we’re eating, we still
walk it off and do some cardio,
just to make sure that the sugars are put to good use.
So it’s been a really long day of walking
around Brooklyn and a lot of eating
but anyways, we have a very productive day.
We do a lot of exploring, try a lot of interesting food,
drinking a lot of water because not only is
it very hot, but when you’re eating so many
salty foods, then you get a bit like parch
Okay, so today, my step count is 13,241, his
is 11,000 but I guess I’m shorter than you
so I have to take more step.
Yeah, I think it’s pretty good, I mean our
aim was to do like 10,000 steps.
Yeah and we hit 13,000.
I think…I feel we can hit 15,000 because
we still have to walk home.
I’m with Tara. And we are now walking to the
gym that is close by.
We’re going to do some upper body, maybe a
bit of hamstrings.
I have brought my resistance bands with me.
And I’m very excited to work out because I
gotta put my ten-course Japanese omakase to work.
Get it all burning up so that I can
just eat more. Haha, that’s the goal.
We’re now walking Augusta.
And I’ve been really proud of my steps so
I think this is one of my favourite things
about living in the city,
is the fact that you just have to walk, you’re
forced to walk everywhere.
And I’ve been averaging about 16,000-20,000
So I’m on the Museum Mile and that’s the Metropolitan
I try to get into the Peggy Guggenheim but
the queue was too off-putting.
There’s no way I could queue and even get
in on time.
I’m just gonna go to the Met Museum, spend
the rest of my day there because it’s huge.
It’s super crowded today, I chose like the
best and the worst day to come to the museum.
Hey guys, so I am now at Grand Central Station
and I have decided to sign myself up for a
free walking tour.
I didn’t know this but apparently, in New
York, you can go and sign up for all these
free walking tours and it’s awesome.
It just brings you to all the places and tells
you the history of the place.
I think it’s also a reason for me to sneak
in some cardio.
This is that famous Grand Central Station
that you see in all the movies.
That’s like the iconic clock.
Okay, it’s day one in D.C. getting my breakfast
banana. Joshua’s here too.
And we’re going on a free walking tour.
So we just spent four hours walking and this
is gonna be our treat for lunch.
Lots of calories and deep-fried American food.
But you can’t get the full American experience
without obesity and ending it with deep-fried
Okay, so I’m in a big American food court.
Only that it’s like way more expensive than Singapore.
But I got myself a salad because I’ve been
junking way too much.
So I got spinach, chicken breasts, egg, some
lentils for protein
and then I got my sauce on the side.
A very great way to get your greens in is
through juicing. So if you can find some green
juice around, this is some kale, banana, pineapple,
cucumber, I like it, I mean it’s very refreshing.
So today we are riding the Cape Cod Rail Trail.
It’s super hot, I am literally melting but
it’s good because I had a very big bagel
and a lot of chips and a lot of fries yesterday and burgers.
So it’s gonna be a good form of cardio for
me to sweat it out as well as explore this
quaint pretty little town.
So we’ve been cycling for about an hour and
this is one of the ponds of Cape Cod. It’s
just super picturesque, everyone’s just outside
enjoying the cool water.
And I think we all deserve ice cream and maybe
a milkshake and some fries and some burgers
and some pizza.
Okay so we went all the way down, all the
ponds, now we are back here.
Morning, so today is one of my last days in
Boston and I’m taking the opportunity to just
walk around, get my steps in and also to explore
So I’m now at this place called Back Bay Fens.
A lot of the residents of the city can actually
come here and they own like a small plot of
land where they can do their farming.
I’m just taking a very nice leisurely stroll
Getting my steps in. Yeah I think it’s just
been really nice for me to take a short break
from the gym because I did go to the gym like
in the earlier part of my trip
but the later part of my trip, you know, I just
kind of decided to get my activity in through you know,
being outdoors, going for long walks and it’s…
it’s been good. I still feel really active,
I don’t have a break in my momentum so much.
And I’ve been eating healthy I say at least
60% of the time, so getting my veggies in.
Okay, so I know it’s really hard to work in
fitness when you’re travelling, but I think
it does help a lot to you know, still incorporate
some activity when you’re out exploring.
You don’t have to limit yourself, and
you don’t have to, you know, restrict yourself
or be hard on yourself if you’re not going
to the gym.
For example, I brought my resistance bands with me.
I was able to do workout outdoor. Something
that I personally enjoyed a lot this holiday
was walking everywhere because when you’re
walking, you’re exploring and you’re also
getting your steps in so it’s cardio and travelling
and you’re killing two birds with one stone.
