what are some steps you can take this year to make it different from last?
all filled with food, drinks, family & love
things that carry us away.
social situations cause us to eat more, drink more that cause us to sleep in & miss those beneficial morning workouts
family & travel lead to raising stress levels
airport food, change in schedule, jet lag, water retention, uncomfy beds....the works
let's have a plan Stan
1. enjoy family time....it's a short time
allow time for yourself to blow off steam
the gym or long walks, yes even if it's cold, get your blood pumping
& your digestion going.
if you walk first thing in the morning you are starting the fire,
getting it burning to increase that metabolism!
2. bring healthy snacks for the plane & travel time
trail mix, fruit & protein bars
DRINK LOTS OF WATER ON THE PLANE
(unless you are the window seat)
hard-boiled eggs, salads, pretzels, pita and bagel chips, dried fruit, granola bars, fresh fruit and rice cakes.
3. workout if you normally workout.
round up some of your family for that morning walk,
take the kids outside to play some touch football,
head to the gym,
get creative with at home yoga!
stretching is the best thing when traveling
get down on the floor & open that S$#T UP.
piriformis, hip flexors & hamstrings are a MUST after flying & long periods of sitting.
4. bring/make a healthy side dish or entree
to a party or meal.
make sure to get your greens,
stay away from the processed "goodness",
gravies = bad new bears,
request to salt your own food, & then dont, it will bloat you.
5. wine & sweets should not be consumed at the same time
6. laugh, sleep, relax & breathe it all in.
