Three tips for the post Easter house!
Most holidays are centered around the idea of indulging in excessive amounts of not so healthy foods, and Easter is no exception. While it’s important to find balance and enjoy these foods every once in awhile, you also don’t want to overindulge and destroy your progress towards your health and fitness goals! Here are three tips to help you get back on track, post Easter:
- Get rid of all the chocolate!
It’s been over a week now, it’s time to throw it away! Out of sight, out of mind is what we are going for here. It’s been 10 days since Easter so it’s time to get rid of any leftover chocolates. Better yet, donate it to the homeless shelter.
Remove the temptation and get it out of the house.
- Be mindful of your portions.
Holidays should be about enjoying yourself, and it’s ok to pile in lots of sometimes foods, but now it’s time to get back into focus. Be mindful of what you are eating and the amount you’re consuming. Rather than eating something ‘just to get it out of the house’, think about whether it will be helping you reach your goals. Keep a food diary for just 5 days and see where you may be sneaking in desserts, chocolates or even extra meals! Watching your portions will still allow you to eat any food you enjoy, but you won’t feel overstuffed and sluggish and will still be on track to your goals.
- Get moving!
This goes for any holiday or celebration; appreciate the time you’ve had to let your hair down a little, but now it’s time to get up & get moving! What goals have you set this year? What do you want to achieve within the next 3 months? Who do you want to be by the end of the year? What does she look like? What does she do? Keep that image in your mind, write it all down, read it aloud daily and get your butt into gear! Schedule your workouts, meet up with a friend for a walk, just get moving. Getting sweaty will help you not just physically, but mentally too.
Easter is done and dusted, no more excuses, no more sabotaging your fitness goals! Share this blog with a friend who’s struggling to get back into it after Easter.
