Do you work out during your trip?
 
Aside from the massive amounts of walking or course. I have lost 99 lbs and of course exercise has been a big part of that. I'm trying to decide if I work out a few times if that will over exert myself and make me more tired or if it will help me giving me extra energy cuz lets face it the diet is always off during disney. Sadly I know all that rich food will make me lethargic (still worth it lol) just wondering what others do?

Yes, we do. We get up early and usually go for a run. Nothing too crazy!

I work out everyday while at WDW

We always work out on vacation, keeps us focused and helps with overall health. So much new (junk) for on vacation, even when being good, all the germs.....getting that heart rate up once a day or so is great for the body. And it gives you energy, as opposed to taking it away.

I've been on Weight Watchers since 2010 and have lost around 170 pounds so I understand wanting to get some exercise in!

On our trip last year, me and my mom planned to go for a walk around the resort each morning....we did that ONE out of about 10 mornings :rotfl2:

We were just so tired after the day that we wanted sleep! Plus we were waking up at 5am in order to get ready for the day and make it to our breakfast reservations. But I would say that we definitely got in plenty of exercise walking at the parks!

My husband does and I try to. He feels best with a vigorous morning workout, I'm still working on that. There is a lot of walking, but it's just not the same.

We actually sprang for a deluxe just for the fitness center.

My fiance does - he is up everyday running early in the morning around POR and POFQ - he does the loop around the river and always says there are others out there with him. I have a friend who always gets up early to walk around the lake at the Boardwalk and she loves that route. I have had some foot issues lately and am hoping to get back up to speed, maybe you will see me out there someday......last trip I was just happy to survive 10 days in the parks! :thumbsup2 Congrats to all those who successfully lost the weight!! pixiedust:

If by work out you mean eat and eat and eat... yep.

We consider ourselves "off the wagon" during our trips but the bad habits end the moment we are back on the plane. I don't even drink soda in civilian life. At all. But at the World...

ZoZo 08-27-2013 07:53 PM

Nope. I feel like I'm getting plenty of exercise walking 7 or 8 miles per day. I try not to go too crazy with my eating while at WDW - some indulgences, sure, but not too many. But I'm usually pretty satisfied knowing I'm walking pretty much all day long, much more than I would have at home.

I love those early morning runs around the resort. They wake you up and give you some added energy for the rest of the day.

You mean other than the 9+ miles we walk everyday we're there?:rotfl2:

That's plenty of exercise. If I walked that everyday, I'd lose the 20+ lbs I want to.

In real life, I work out every day, but it is honestly difficult fitting it in on these trips. I hope to get a few workouts in on our upcoming Disney trip but not sure it will happen.

First, congrats on the weight loss! That is awesome.

I always plan to work out on holiday, wherever I go, but 9 times out of 10 I don't actually do it. The good thing about Disney is that you are doing a lot of walking but if you don't want to get out of your routine (and that is always my problem - I come back from holiday and still don't want to exercise) then I would try to fit some exercise in.

Work out every day....I love to do the BWV/BCV jog runs in the morning. SSR and VWL have good runs as well. If we're someplace without a good jog trail we hit the resort gym(s) when they open. Then we can feel better about all the wonderful food/drink we have on vacation. This is coming from a person who HATES exercise. It's just an accepted necessary thing I have to do and a challenge every single day of my life.

I did on my last trip. Loved the gym at Coronado.
