Hello! Another day has ended and another day closer to the weekend. I like the sound of that. Just yesterday, I was feeling a tad bit terribly because I had eaten quite a bit on Easter. Not anything too over the top, but more carbs and chocolate than usual. *Sigh* — well, scratch that. Not so much of a sigh, because I very promptly reminded myself that I’ve been on the ‘right’ track lately with eating and working out and that fretting gets no one anywhere!
So here, I’ve compiled a few so-called ‘rules’ for when you’re feeling a tad bit sluggish after holiday/birthday/cheat-day eating:
1. Wake up and erase any looming guilt/thoughts about what you ate the previous day. It’s useless because today is brand new and you’re not going to be popping Peeps every ten minutes.
2. Flush out those toxins with some green tea. I prefer to resist coffee the day after because I feel it can be a bit clogging for the system and choose a big unsweetened iced green tea instead.
3. Try to get in at least thirty minutes of working out. Anything to getchyo’ body movin’! Fast walking, elliptical, strength-training — doesn’t matter, just move it 😉
4. Fill your plates with nutritious foods. This is a given and I know you already know this 🙂 A bit of complex carbs, protein, and fruit will do the trick.
5. Plan your meals in advance and try to take a little break from alcohol, since it can cause bloating!
6. Remember — there are only so many holiday’s a year and you had fun! So relish in your Easter basket here and there 😉
