3 Simple Ways To Get Back On Track

Uncategorized Sep 05, 2018

It can be very easy to fall off track after a long weekend like Labor Day! 

I know first hand. I just returned from a 5 day trip to Washington to visit my aunt and attend a concert at The Gorge Amphitheater. 

I literally ate more chips this past weekend than I have over the entire year!

Sometimes we need to fall off the healthy train completely to appreciate jumping back on.

It's ok to have bad weekends here and there but it's not ideal to have them all the time! Did you know that you can consume back all of the calories you burned off during the week in just 2 days?

Yeah, it's horrible! That's why I try to live the 80/20 rule but for me, this weekend was more like 30/70....ya feel me? 

It's all good though, it's part of life. We need to have fun every once in a while and not always stress about what we put into our mouth. Practicing living a healthy BALANCED lifestyle should be the goal!

By incorporating these 3 simple ways, getting back on track will be easier than you think! 

  1. Plan out your dinners: find 3 recipes that do not have carbs! Looks for ones that are loaded with veggies. Make leftovers to enjoy for lunch or dinner during the week. My favorite sites to find healthy recipes are The Beachbody Blog and Cooking Light Quick and Healthy.

  2. Track your water intake: as you probably already know, you should drink half of your body weight in ounces. After a weekend of bad eating, it's a good idea to drink even more water to help flush out the toxins, keep you full and reset your system. I aim to drink 90 oz of water a day and track it using my Fitbit app. What you track, you can measure!  

  3. Eat more veggies: veggies are filled with fiber and vital nutrients needed to fuel your body. They fill you up and are the healthiest food you can eat! Veggie load at night. Eat your carbs for breakfast, lunch and snack then veggie load at night! Have 2 servings and use veggies like squash or cauliflower rice to replace carbs. You won't feel sluggish or overly full before bed!

Start with these 3 easy tips to help get you back on track after the holiday weekend. You will be amazed by how quickly you will de-bloat, gain energy and be motivated to add on more healthy habits to help you reach your fitness goals.
