I try to live a healthy lifestyle. I exercise as much as I can, eat a healthy diet, and avoid red meat and junk food. I have diabetes so I must watch my diet and do not eat a lot of sugar or fat. I go to the dentist every six months and try to watch my blood pressure by limiting the salt in my diet.
The other day I received a brochure in the mail advertising a “diabetes cruise” for over $6,000. I could take a relaxing vacation in the Caribbean and attend lectures about diabetes while I’m at it, as well as eating healthy diabetic meals.
If I took this cruise, learning about diabetes would be about the farthest thing from my mind. If I’m going to blow that much money on a cruise, I’d want to watch the sun set over the ocean and lay on the beach with a couple of island babes in grass skirts and have a coconut full of rum in my hand. The last thing that I’d want to do is attend a lecture on diabetes. I can attend plenty of those right here at home.
But if you actually enjoy exercising unlike me, then this next item may be just for you:
According to Medical News Today: “Need a vacation? Most of us do. As many as 50 percent of Americans don’t get away at least once a year to rejuvenate. And when they do, it is difficult for travelers to maintain healthy diet and fitness regimens while on the road.”
For those of you who just can’t give up the fitness regime for a couple of weeks, there is a vacation that is called “My Destination Wellness.” The cruise features exercise classes on exotic beaches, a personal trainer, and healthy meals prepared by a certified chef.
And your accommodations won’t be too shabby either. You can stay at the El Dorado Spa Resorts & Hotels, by Karisma, in Riviera Maya, Mexico. I hear it’s really nice there this time of year. The itineraries come in three, six or one-day packages.
First of all, you come up with a fitness plan that includes your goals with your personal trainer. My-destination-wellness.com will not only help you book your wellness vacation, but it is also a place where former guests can share their experiences with others. It will also serve as your continued source for fitness, diet and wellness information.
Me, on the other hand? I think that I will book a regular vacation and sit on the sand with my women in grass skirts and my coconut full of rum and fruit juice. It’s probably cheaper as well.
