Will a week on vacation spell the end to your exercise routine?
Nope - it doesn't have to be the end, whether you choose to workout on vacation or not!
First things first, you will not "lose all your fitness" or "go backwards" by taking even a full week off. On the contrary, sometimes a little extra rest time helps your body regenerate and be ready to get back at it when you return.
The trick, of course, is not to let it a week off get you out of the HABIT. Is that a risk for you? For some of us, when we get out of the habit, getting BACK into the habit is super hard. If that is YOU, I suggest you NOT skip the week when you are on vacation! Rather, find at least a few small ways to keep the habit going so you can still feel "on track". That could be a simple walk in the mornings a few times during the week, an online exercise video, or a short sequence of strength training exercises done with convenient and lightweight, travel-friendly exercise tubing. The content is less important than the habit (which is a common theme of mine!) while you are away. When you are home, you'll be glad that exercise is still in your brain and your habits!
