I get asked a lot, "how do you get back on track after a "fun" weekend or vacation? Start with these tips!
1. Pause. Remember. Laugh. Yep.
This needs to be the first thing you do after a vacation or long weekend. Before you start stressing out about what you didn't do (like that morning workout or ordering a salad at dinner), pause and remember all the good things that happened. Remember the funny moments, smile, and laugh. Let that positive attitude gear you up for a great week!
Also this: Stressing out about what you didn't do can cause food (specifically sugar) cravings. Please don't make things harder for yourself by stressing. Instead pause. Remember. Laugh. And then move on.
2._Start with breakfast
Instead of telling yourself on Sunday evening or Monday morning that you're going to "eat perfectly this entire week," start with just breakfast. The chances of you choosing healthier meals throughout the day will increase if you focus on at least starting with a healthy breakfast. After breakfast focus on choosing a healthy lunch. Then dinner. Get your body back in the groove one meal at a time.
3. Drink 2 extra cups of water for a few days
There's a good chance that you indulged in some high sodium foods, which are causing you to be bloated and not feel your best. Or you might be dehydrated from too much sun. and a few too many drinks. The solution to both problems is to drink more water! Make it goal to drink two extra cups of water for the first three days after your vacation or weekend of fun!
4. Add more veggies and fruit to your meals
Depending on the type of vacation or weekend you enjoyed, your body might be craving veggies and fruit-go with that craving! But even if you're not, start incorporating more veggies and fruit into your meals. Aim to fill half of your plate with veggies, and you will be feeling like a million bucks in no time!
5. Get at least 7-9 hrs of sleep
When you don't get enough sleep, you can expect to battle stronger cravings, mood swings, lack of motivation, and that annoying feeling of being hungry even when you've had plenty to eat.
Getting enough sleep is one of the most powerful moves you can make to get back on track!
Since my teenage years I was fascinated by my fitness and physique. This resulted in a lot of hours training and
trying many different ways to achieve my intended results.
By nature I am an adventurous sporty type. Also during my travels there should always be an adventurous and sporty
element in it. Also, I always find a gym abroad to experience how Personal Trainers are working there.
Through these experiences I became eager to turn my hobby into my profession.
