Are you going to let all your healthy eating slip up right when Friday night rolls around?
The weekends are filled with temptation, get togethers, parties, weddings, showers, birthdays, dinner parties, etc. Don’t use the 3 nights this weekend as an excuse to eat whatever you want or as an excuse not to exercise. Even if you add in a short 20-25 minute walk on Saturday and Sunday, that could turn into an extra 200 calories burned. Instead of splurging all weekend long choose something that’s 200 calories and indulge with less guilt. 200 calories could be a small slice of veggie pizza, a glass of wine, or a scoop of your favorite ice cream!
If you are heading out for the night, try and eat a small 100-150 calorie snack before hand to help curb your hunger before happy hour at the bar, or a dinner party at your friends house. You will munch less at your party. Examples of snacks: veggies & hummus, a small apple with string cheese, yogurt, fruit, a small serving of almonds or pistachios, etc.
We all know what can happen when we are running on empty… we make poor decisions and we take in more calories!
On a different note.. I am loving the weather lately. Marc took today off, and after I finish up my morning clients we are driving to the middle of CT to go hiking!! I am very excited to do something different and also to exercise in a setting outside of the gym!
Here is a random picture from this week that made me laugh. Take a look at Cooper and his buddy trying to pull a branch off a tree. They attempted this for about 10 minutes with no success but it was fun to watch Great teamwork.
