But first lets begin with my trip. Finally Bucket List # 6. Visit Niagara Falls (check).
|International Line. One half in Canada, one half in USA|
Now onto which side has the best falls. We've been told that the Canadian side is the best and has the wonderful viewing etc. We did stay on the Canadian side and we where happy we did. But to answer which side is better, that's a hard one. They both have their own spectacular beauty.

So the falls are WONDERFUL, everything I hoped they would be. The question still remains 'how do you go on vacation and not gain weight? My solution was to be more active. So I clipped on my pedometer and we walked and walked and walked.
Most everything in Niagara Falls is assessable by walking which really helped to neutralize the extra yummies we enjoyed, double short breve latte's with warmed chocolate chip cookies was just one of our afternoon treats.

To access other attractions that are not within walking distance they offer a jump on and off shuttle system called WEGO. We chose this activity the day after our 9 miles but we still were able to get in our 10,000 steps.
Our room was on the 14th floor and we climbed the steps 3 times.

Lastly the tub of nuts.
Warning: eating a tub of nuts could result in weight gain…?! da
The mixed nut recipe is really easy and it gives you that bit of sweetness that I enjoy so much.
Basically I took an equal amount of pecans, walnuts, cashews and raisins, mixed them all together then I squirted a bit of lemon juice on top, then sprinkled cinnamon on top of that and once again mixed together. It's really good but next time I'll try and divide out into smaller individual portions.

Do you have any tips you use to help you stay fit and healthy while vacationing and traveling? I'd love to hear them.
