Hi lovelies! I hope you all had a fabulous Memorial Day weekend!
If you didn’t stay as healthy as planned this weekend, don’t dwell on it. Holiday weekends can easily lead to lots of over indulging. There’s happy hour on Friday, a party on Saturday, Sunday brunch, and the list goes on. Even the healthiest person can easily be thrown off track. All the excess carbs, fat, salt, sugar and booze can leave us feeling bloated, tired, hungry and guilty by Monday Tuesday.
Now is the perfect time to give your body exactly what it needs. Reestablish a healthy balance. Over the next four days, take extra care of your body. Fill it with nourishing foods high in vitamins, minerals, fiber and as many nutrients as possible.
Step 1: Be kind to yourself. Give yourself a break. You indulged because you were having fun – there is nothing to regret. Treat yourself with kind words and move forward.
Step 2: Flush it out. Start your day with a large glass of water or a warm cup of tea. Then aim to drink at least 100 ounces of water throughout the day.
Step 3: Eat clean. Plan out your meals and stick to it. Focus on nutrient dense, whole foods that are high in vitamins and minerals. Now is not the time to allow yourself (another) treat.
Step 4: Supplement. Take a multivitamin and Omega-3 supplement to ensure you are getting all your nutrients.
Step 5: Sweat it out. Get plenty of exercise over the next few days. Up the intensity so you can sweat out the toxins.
Question: Did you treat yourself a little too much over the holiday weekend? How do you plan on getting back into your healthy routine?
