Remember the end of 2011 when you diligently made your New Year’s resolutions? You vowed lose weight, get more active and eat better. You may have fallen off the wagon, but spring is here and so is Fit Globetrotter Dena Braun-Roché with four new ways to reinvigorate those same resolutions.

If you’re like the majority of people your good intentions smacked up against your willpower and your busy life and your admirable goals have already fallen by the wayside. Don’t let 2012 be another year of unresolved resolutions! Get your goal back on track by making it fun with a healthy vacation.

This spring take your love of travel and use it as a catalyst to revive your stalled New Year’s resolution to make 2012 your year of wellness!

It’s All About the Food

Ask most people who’ve lost weight how they did it and they’ll tell you the best results came from changing the way they ate. I know, it’s not what you want to hear, but cooking and eating healthy doesn’t have to mean sacrificing flavor and pleasure. Instead of focusing on diet food or calorie cutting, get inspired to make food to make you fit by learning from a master in the heart of Tuscany.

One option is a five day/six night Italian healthy, organic culinary adventure by International Kitchen with three hands-on cooking classes. Chef Jacopo Tendi teaches participants how to use local and sustainable ingredients to craft four-course, healthy meals.

The program also includes wine tours, visits to local markets and trattorias, and sightseeing in places like Pisa and Lucca. Your home for the week is Le Fonti a San Giorgio, whose property offers iconic views of olive groves and vineyards and amenities like pools, game room and miles of paths to get out and enjoy the countryside (and burn some calories to boot!)

The cooking school ranges from $2500-2900.
