Your no excuse guide to staying toned while traveling this holiday season

Many fitness enthusiasts find it difficult to follow their normal exercise plan while traveling to see family or friends for the winter holidays.  Unfamiliar environments, tightly-packed family living conditions, or lack of exercise equipment may hamper even a fitness fanatic’s best intentions for staying fit while traveling this holiday season. Alex Vitale is a V Shred Lead Trainer, Certified Personal Trainer through the National Council of Strength and Fitness and a graduate of the Equinox Fitness Training Institute. When planning your December holiday trip, he offers the following tips for putting together an exercise program that travels with you.

“If you’ve worked hard to establish a good fitness routine, traveling for the holidays doesn’t have to mean your healthy habits will be derailed, says Alex. He adds, “You can keep your momentum and endorphins flowing and maintain your fitness level when traveling.”


Stay Hydrated. “Drink a minimum of eight 8-ounce glasses of water each day. Airport food, sitting on a plane, jet lag – all contribute to bloat. The best way to fight it is to stay hydrated,” says Alex Vital of V Shred.

Lift from your knees, not your back. Be aware of your posture as you carry your bags.  Use good body mechanics when you lift your suitcases up to the check-in counter.

Eat three meals a day- Even though you’ve left behind your daily routine, try to eat three meals a day, maintain a balanced diet and eat plenty of fruit and vegetables. If you’re going to eat a high-fat meal, eat a smaller portion, or order an appetizer instead of a main course. Split desserts with a friend.

Rest. If your schedule is shot and you’re not sleeping enough at night, take cat naps whenever you get the chance.  Stretch in the morning and evening, especially if you’ve been sitting all day. If you will be drinking alcohol, drink a lot of water between events.

Pack snacks: bananas and apples, yogurt, protein bars. You can make meal replacement shakes in your hotel room. You don’t need a blender, just a container with a tight-fitting lid, large enough to shake the contents.

Find out if your gym reciprocates its membership with a gym where you’ll be traveling, log onto the International Physical Fitness Association’s Web site,, or ask at your home health club before you leave town. Alex Vital says that “Three to five days off from a strength routine can give your muscles a rest. But you wouldn’t want to go a week or more without serious exercise and a short respite for your biceps doesn’t mean you should ever let your cardio workout go.”

Become a member of an online fitness platform guides users to the very best program for their
body type and fitness goals while giving them some amazing tips they can use
that day in a video and then offers them a program that’s perfect for them if
they don’t want to do it themselves.

Take the V Shred Quiz Here.

Pack a jump rope for a go-anywhere aerobic session. Invest in “travel weights” -inflatable weights that can be filled with water or sand when training, folded and stored while on the road.

Plan active recreation during vacations -check out the local golf course, riding stable, and so on.

When sightseeing, forget the tour bus and walk. You’ll not only see more, but you’ll be sneaking in some extra activity.

Bring portable fitness.

For more fitness options, place in your luggage a Resist-A-Tube or any of the home exercise tubing, a stability ball, jump rope or exercise video. ”If you like classes, make your own class in your room,” offers Alex Vital

If you work with a personal trainer, ask him or her to design an exercise plan before you leave town. When you’re sitting on a plane or in a hotel room, take deep breaths occasionally, tighten your stomach muscles, then relax. Travelers need to periodically flex and stretch the hamstrings and hip flexors, the muscle at the upper part of the leg that connects into the pelvis.

 For women who spend the day in high heels, a walk around the room toe-up, heel-down will stretch the calf muscles. Or, do toe raises by putting the heels on the floor and stepping up onto a telephone book. “Men often complain of being cramped when traveling,” states Vital. “They need to stretch their lower back and legs.” He recommends the cat stretch. Get up on your hands and knees, arch your back for 15 seconds, then release. Repeat.

Alex Vital points out that the more comfortable you are with operating fitness machinery at your home gym, the easier it will be to set up unfamiliar equipment when you’re on the road.


Air travel may be fast and convenient, but for many of us, it can be uncomfortable and restrictive due to cramped cabins and sardine-like seating. The following tips can help you make the most of your next airplane trip by helping you stay flexible and fit while you fly.

–           DEEP BREATHING is an instant-relaxer and can be done anywhere at any time. Try taking 4-5 deep, cleansing breaths several times during your flight.

–           RELAX YOUR SHOULDERS by bending forward slightly, hands on knees and “rolling” your shoulders in a circular motion 5 or 6 times. Repeat the “roll” in the opposite direction, then finish up by “shrugging” your shoulders up and down 5 times.

–           RELAX YOUR BACK by reaching overhead, holding elbows, and bending side to side. Repeat 5 times in each direction.

–           STRETCH YOUR LEGS by alternately lifting your knees toward your chest and bringing your body toward your knee to the count of eight.

–           RELEASE YOUR FEET by “drawing” the alphabet with one foot then the other.

Skyy Hadley has the best winter nail care tips

 Skyy Hadley has the best winter nail care tips and she is sharing them with us! Often times when we think of the negative, long-lasting effects the winter weather can have, we think of our skin – not our nails. But, nail care is just as important as skin care this season, as it tends to be the time when our nails are most prone to chipping, peeling, and general damage. In order to make sure your mani stays moisturized and in mint condition this season, celebrity manicure and owner of As U Wish Nail Spa, Skyy Hadley is shelling out the best winter nail care tips.
 1. Start with a Clean Canvas
Hand cream is a necessity for winter hydration, but too much of it will make your nail polish come right off. Be sure to use nail polish remover before each polish application to remove surface oils, and make for a cleaner and more long-lasting manicure.
2. Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate
Cold, dry air and a chilly climate is going to suck the moisture out of your skin, and this includes your hands, nails, and cuticles. Apply and re-apply a nourishing cuticle oil as needed throughout the day to avoid hangnails, cracked cuticles, and peeling nails. Seal in the moisture with a heavy-duty hand cream, and you’ll be good to go.

 3. Never Go Naked
Think of nail polish as a strong suit of armor for your nails. Having a fresh manicure makes you look polished and put-together and at the same time prevents your natural nails from peeling, breaking, and chipping. Save on time (and extra steps) and use an all-in-one formula with a built-in base and top coat.
 4. Use a Nail Strengthener
Create the ultimate barrier of protection using a nail strengthener which will prevent splitting, chipping, and cracking, all while helping your nails grow. Use it as a strengthening base coat – or for those who prefer to go au naturale, paint on one coat for a shield of protection without the polish.

New from Nubian Heritage … Honey and Black seed collection

There is everything to love about Nubian Heritage. I’m a huge fan of Nubian Heritage, especially their newest Collection, Honey and Black Seed, it’s  exceptional. The collection consists of 6 products that the entire family can use; Bar Soap, Body Lotion, Body Wash, Hand Cream, 24 hour Deodorant and infused Shea Butter.  My husband has already gone through the Bar Soap and is waiting for me to order another one. The Black Seed adds a nice texture to the soap offering a very light exfoliation leaving your skin feeling soft and smooth. The scent is enjoyable and my whole family likes it which isn’t often the case.

Here is a little information on Black Seed.  Black Seed, also known as the “seed of blessing,” is such a part of our culture that it was found in the Tomb of King Tutankhamen. So powerful are its medicinal properties that ancient proverbs proclaim Black Seed on the skin to strengthen the immune system, prevent external infections, increase blood circulation and achieve a smooth, even complexion.

*Black Seed Oil was reportedly used by Queen Nefertiti to maintain her exquisite complexion.

*Arabian Honey, a humectant packed with antioxidants, helps skin maintain a youthful glow.

*Shea Butter is certified organic and fair trade, sourced from 15 women’s co-ops in Northern Ghana. Shea butter provides fatty acids and vitimins that nourish the skin.

*Apricot Oil helps kill skin cells that produce the protein, keratin. This allows new skin cells to form.

I feel the same way about Nubian Heritage Body Wash Honey & Black Seed. The body wash  contains Black Seed Oil and Arabian Honey and is rich in antioxidants. This is surely a luxurious, moisturizing body cleanser. It’s natural enzymes, amino acids and proteins boost moisture retention while soothing and perfecting skin’s appearance, Leaving you  skin feeling smooth. What I love most about the body wash is its amazing scent. Not only does your skin feel soft, the scent stays on your body quite a long time.

If you have dry skin, especially your hands and feet, I would strongly recommend Nubian Heritage’s 100% Organic Shea Butter. Also infused with Arabian Honey and Black Seeds, the shea butter immediately softens and smooths your skin. It’s a little on the thick side but it’s worth the extra time applying the shea butter and it won’t disappoint.

Nubian Heritage Honey and Black Seed Collection is suitable for all skin types including Combination skin and oily skin. All Nubian Heritage products are cruelty-free and does not contain parabens, sulfates, phthalates, paraffin, mineral oil, petroleum, DEAA, synthetic fragrance or artificial coloring.
Nubian Heritage is available at Nubian and the Vitamin Shoppe.
