Post holiday healthy lifestyle tips

Feeling a little bit off track after the holidays? Sometimes being surrounded by endless amounts of drinks and alcohol can make us feel sluggish after the holidays. Also, the cold winter weather doesn’t help when it comes to being active. Here are a few ways to get back on a healthy schedule and prep for spring!

The first and most important step is to create an individualized plan for yourself. Write down goals you have and how you are going to accomplish them. This allows you to stick to what you want to achieve.

Goals

Next, avoid grazing. Eating well balanced meals and light snacks will stop you from urges to look for more. Sometimes, removing trigger foods from your kitchen will force you to avoid them. Logging your meals into a journal can help you stay dedicated.

One important step that is not often thought of is creating a list of other hobbies and activities to participate in when you have cravings. Distractions will help get your mind off of those cravings.

The most important rule is to have balance and moderation. Eating too healthy and depriving yourself of foods you enjoy is also unhealthy. It is okay to enjoy some of the foods that you like as long as it is not all of the time. Patience is key, listen to your body and know that good things take time. dog-eating-cake.jpg

Fitness On Fridays! (juicin’ it up)

    Hello loves! For the past week I’ve been doing a juice cleanse and man, do I feel great!
    Starting on Monday, I began a one week long juice cleanse. I was inspired to try it out after reading an article at the salon where I get my nails done last Sunday. I thought, “Why not, it can’t hurt to try?” So that night I asked my grandmother (an avid vegan) to please press a few juices for me. She gladly did so and sent me home with 6 juices to try during the first two days. I then followed these eating patterns:
7:30 a.m.- one 12 o.z. bottle of juice and one sliced apple
11:00 a.m.- half of a protein bar
12:15 p.m.- another 12 o.z. bottle of a different juice and a SMALL fruit salad (strawberries, apples, bananas)
2:30 p.m.- the other half of the protein bar
6:00 p.m.- another pressed juice and a SMALL salad (carrots, bell peppers, spinach, cranberries, sunflower seeds)
    The first day was not bad at all! I felt energized and was able to carry out my normal exercise routine. But, the second day, I cut out the protein bars and replaced my breakfast apple with one hard-boiled egg. That made all the difference. By 5:00 p.m. I was tired, stressed, and wanting to eat anything in sight. Luckily, I did not give in and carried out the same routine the next day with new juices. I felt healthy, and non-bloated again! I am now nearly complete with my 5th day of this juice cleanse and have lost 5.3 pounds since Monday. Next Monday, I do not plan to continue this juice fast because it can eventually put your health at risk. But, for anyone looking to reduce bloating or shed a few pounds, I definitely recommend this method!
    During your juice cleanse, it is also very important to continue drinking lots and lots of water! Dehydration is never a good option! Goodluck! (:
xoxo,
