We Said Go Travel

On vacation, I work hard to maintain my weight. I lost weight while traveling for a year in South East Asia, and was worried when I returned to America that I would gain it all back. I walked to the school where I was teaching about 2 miles each way each day to stay in shape. Then I went on the road again for 18 months and bought a hula-hoop. I used to hoop for 30min a day in addition to all the walking with a backpack. Then life changed again and I was back in the USA. Now I am traveling and writing and being offered giant meals with so many desserts. I think about what I am eating and what I am going to skip. I also make time to exercise. Sometimes I wake up early to go to the fitness center or hula-hoop while listening to meditation tapes by Oprah and Deepak Chopra and sometimes my exercise is part of my days like scuba diving or skiing.
