Your excuses are valid. I know. You travel a lot. You’re forced to eat out a lot. You aren’t in one place long enough to have a gym membership. I get it. I’m in the same boat. Or maybe in the same jet, for sure I’m in coach with my knees grazing the seat in front of me, but I digress. How do you make a commitment to health that fits your lifestyle?
Make healthier choices.
Grab a bottle of water as soon as you get through security instead of a sugar filled drink. Staying hydrated absolutely does curb cravings. If you’re a coffee lover, order some Bulletproof InstaMix to travel with. On shorter trips we only take carry on luggage, so I can’t carry a bottle of Brain Octane oil or a jar of ghee with me. The Instamix allows me to make my coffee Bulletproof anywhere, and while it’s not the same as using upgraded, mold-free coffee, I will admit to buying a strong Americano from Starbucks and making it Bulletproof – ish!
One way you can avoid fast food in the airport, or a tube of Pringles on the plane is to carry healthy snacks with you. Carry a bag of almonds with you. A small handful of almonds or a packet of almond butter and an expensive banana from Starbucks will keep your blood sugar from spiking and crashing while you travel. I always make room in my carry on for a box of Bulletproof’s Collagen Protein Bites. This 100 calorie bar is delicious and satisfying, full of healthy fat and protein.
Don’t sit and scroll on your phone the entire time you’re waiting for a flight. Get up and walk around. If you have a heavy carry on bag, all the better. Quit complaining and haul that thing like it’s your medicine ball! Avoid escalators and elevators, choose the stairs!
I travel with my daughter, who is six now and has 35 flights under her belt. When she was younger I’d make her run laps in the waiting area on layovers to “get the wiggles out” and now that she’s older and won’t always run on command, we wander around and explore the airport every once in a while depending on how long we’re waiting. We also go for walks or find a playground or a pool wherever we travel. She’s such a good sport and willing to try just about anything. Ask her about snorkeling with thousands of sharks in Florida, or indoor skydiving in Perris, CA.

The bottom line is that YOU CAN make choices that support your health and well-being no matter what your lifestyle looks like. It’s a challenge sometimes, but it’s worth it. As an older mom, my goal is to stay healthy and fit so I can travel with my daughter for years to come!
