First things first: don’t beat yourself up if you’ve packed it all in. Overeating and slacking off at the gym comes with the territory during the holidays. What’s important is that you don’t berate yourself too much, and just move forward. After, all the damage has been done and you did enjoy yourself while eating them. So here are a couple of things to help you back on your road to fitness.
Avoid the temptation to eat all the excess food from the holidays. Better yet, give them all away to neighbors. Replace your fruit cake with fruits and healthy snacks.
Try this, it works for me. Coconut fats have special fats called medium chain triglycerides (MCTs). It has been shown that breaking down these types of healthy fats in the liver leads to efficient burning of energy. 30 milliliters (about 2 tablespoons) of coconut oil daily for 12 weeks not only did not gain more weight, but actually had lowered amounts of abdominal fat, a type of fat that is difficult to lose.
Have a fitness goal and put them into writing or create a vision board for it. Nothing will motivate you all the more than seeing your goals written down or a photo of your skinny self or that pair of skinny jeans you have been drooling.
Instead of reaching out for carbonated drinks, coffee, or alcohol, drink lots of water instead. Pretty basic, right? Most of the time we think we’re hungry, that means we’re actually just thirsty. In addition to giving you the feeling of being full, drinking water will also help flush out the uncessary toxins from all the calorie-laden food that you have been eating. Try organic veggie juices ~ kale, parsley ,beet, carrot, ginger, and cilantro.
Slowly ease your way out of eating processed food (they make u fat ) and start cooking with natural and organic ingredients. Coconut Oil, Olive Oil (at lower temps) instead of cream sauces. Eliminate diary ~ wheat ~ sugars . In the same vein, instead of eating out, cook your own food so you should be able to watch out the ingredients that you put in.
Time to move!
Next time in the grocery store … people & cart watch. Notice their body’s & notice what the shopping carts full of. Make the mental connection. YOU ARE WHAT YOU EAT.
