Is it just me, or does pretty much everything involve food and alcohol? Your friends want to do something, and it’s either a takeaway, night out, lunch date, etc. Your boyfriend/date wants to do something, and it involves drinks, a meal, and other calorific endeavours. Your family want to do something, and you get the picture. It all involves food and alcohol. To be honest, I’m quite tired of this. I know I’ve mentioned it before, but I’m prepping for a competition. This means no food that I can’t track and no alcohol for me until it’s over. That’s why I thought I’d create a post on some fun things you can do without food or alcohol. Hope you like it!
Go to a Trampoline Park
I went to a trampoline park the other week and it was loads of fun. I didn’t do any flips or anything like that because I was a bit rubbish, but I still had a good time. People of all ages visit these places so you don’t need to worry about being the oldest there! If you’re a bit more acrobatic than me, there are soft pits you can do flips and things in!
Go Rock Climbing
You don’t actually have to scale a real rock to go rock climbing. There are plenty of indoor rock climbing places you can go that are a lot of fun. Not only that, they’re great for upping your fitness levels. I’ve heard that they make people ache in places they didn’t realise they could ache!
If you don’t fancy jumping, climbing, or doing anything much at all, why not go somewhere and just people watch? You could go to the park, sit outside of a cafe, or go somewhere else and just watch the world go by.
Coffee and a Catch Up
There are hardly any calories in coffee, and science even says that a few here and there can be good for us. Invite your friends for a coffee and a catch up rather than a full blown meal or night out. Just avoid going for the biscuits or cake if you’re trying to get in shape for summer.
A Walk in the Woods
The weather’s getting nicer now, which means going walking is a great idea! You’ll get fitter, burn some cals, and be able to take in the wonderful summery atmosphere.
A Pamper Night
If you’d rather not leave the house, a pamper night could be another good idea. Grab some face masks, put on a film, paint your nails, whatever you like. Rather than getting a takeaway and a bottle of wine if you’re on a health kick, make some green juice and healthy snacks like kale chips.
Paintballing isn’t just for boys! Grab all of your friends and have a day out at a paintball park. You might end up with some bruises, but it’s a lot of fun.
Hop on your bike and go exploring when the weather’s nice. Another great way to get fit!
Maybe you want a day to relax. What could be better than a spa day? They’re a little pricy, but when you consider the amount of money you probably spend on food and alcohol, there might not be that much difference!
