Wellness program get derailed?
Here are 3 ways to get back on track!
It happens to all of us. We are doing so great with our healthy lifestyle. We’re eating clean, completing daily workouts, staying hydrated and feeling great. Then something comes along – for me it was Easter Weekend. I’m not proud to say, but for me the holiday weekend consisted of loaded nacho’s, a few glasses of Prosecco, a venti chia latte, ham, all the Easter dinner traditions and my biggest downfall – marshmallow peeps!! Once I had one – it was over – and two boxes later, my sugar craving skyrocketed. I had indigestion for the first time in years, a lousy night of sleep, then woke up tired and bloated.
I could have beat myself up over my weekend eating frenzy, given up and just continued to give in to my sugar cravings. Or I could say ok that was yesterday, I had a rough weekend, I paid for it mind and body, but today I’m getting back on track (which is what I did!). Moral of the story is no one is perfect 100% of the time, we’re human and get off track. The key is to get back on track as quickly as possible. Here are three ways to get over overindulging:
- Drink a water detox. My favorite is taking 32oz of water add one sliced lemon, ½ sliced cucumber and add a sprig or two of fresh mint. Drink this throughout the day to help eliminate toxins and cravings.
- Workout as soon as possible. Take a walk, get to a fitness class or the gym and workout. Remind yourself of the benefits from the workouts – mental and physical. Use the endorphins from exercise as opposed to the quick sugar rush.
- Make cabbage soup. Cabbage vegetable soup is a great way to restore vital nutrients to your body, eliminate toxins and cravings.
You will find that by participating in these activities and making clean choices with future meal plans, derailing doesn’t have to mean the end of all the good things you’ve accomplished. It just shows you what you’re really not missing. As good as the Easter weekend foods tasted, they weren’t worth the way I felt after eating them.
