Instead of feeling bad/guilty/pissed/annoyed in regards to the oh-so-annoying bloat, try nipping that rubbish in the bud. What’s done is done. A lot of you have e-mailed me concerned about the overindulging. Look, it’s normal to overeat occassionally. Now it’s time to leave the pity party & take action. Leave the past in the past.
Ya get me ; )?
Here’s some tips/tricks to avoid those bloats and kilos:
1.} Water. Ya, ya, ya. You hear this all the time. There’s a reason it’s number one on the list. Drink it until you feel like you’re about to give birth.
2.} Light Soda. Since you’ll most likely be drinking more than usual around the holidays and occassions or when you over-indulge, try to avoid it if there’s no celebrations going on. When you do end up drinking, stick to diet, light or zero.
3.} Motivate yourself. If you’re laying around like a slob & complaining, peel yourself from the coach & squeeze in an hour workout. Be productive/disciplined.
4.} Eat clean. Examples? cottage cheese, low-carb bread, berries, any type of vegetable, quinoa, fresh soups, sliced cucumber with light cheese ,salt and pepper chicken, tuna fish, blah, blah. Pretty simple, since there’s tons of options!
5.} Green tea. People do not understand how beneficial green tea is. shoot for two cups a day. It speeds the metabolism, cleanses the system, & contains tons of lovely antioxidants.
6.} Vitamins. Ok. So lately I have been trying to get my vitamins from food. Calcium, D3, B12, etc. can all be found in the food you’re eating. Why take a pill when you eat something delicious? Speaking of vitamins… try a B12 shot. I love these yet im horrified of needles, but if you arent then get a shot. also buy vitamins if you feel you wont get it in your food.
7.} Tan. Because it just makes everything look better.you always need Vitamin D. Some people look best with light skin, if you’re one of those peeps- lucky you.
8.} Kick up your workouts. Whatever you’re used to doing throughout the year, kick it up a notch. You’ll feel better & you’ll look better. No excuses!
9.} Stop projecting negativity. To look fab, you have to feel fab. Beating yourself up isn’t the answer. Changing the solution to your problem is.
10.} MyFitnessPal app. Now for the best tip ever…Get the app called MyFitnessPal on iphone or ipad; if you’re freaking about not going crazy, this is a real problem solver. It seriously, really, without a doubt keeps your ass in check
