I try to eat fairly healthy and workout on a regular basis (Pure Barre is my latest favorite) so I decided to put together some tips for getting back on track after a vacation of not the healthiest habits.
Drink lots of water
It's recommended that you drink half your body weight in fluid ounces of water of day (so someone whose 125 pound would drink 62.5 fluid ounces of water) so doing this is an awesome way to get back to having a balanced and healthy diet.
Limit your sweets
In New York, I definitely overindulged in dessert. I mean somedays I would have a cookie after lunch, candy at the beach, and then a not-so-little dessert either at home or a restaurant. Simply cutting back on this helps so much, meaning no cookies in the middle of the day haha!
Resume your Workout Routine
Although healthy eating is very important to getting back on track, working out is still important. I personally love Pure Barre but there's so many other ways to break a sweat.
Snacking is definitely something I need to work on. Having healthy options at home helps so much whether they're yogurt, granola bars, apples with peanut butter, or pistachios.
Have one "treat" a day
Even though it's important not to overindulge when you're trying to get back on track, it's also important not to deprive yourself (especially in the last few weeks of summer vacation). I've found that having one treat, whether it's a scoop of Halo Top ice cream or a cookie, a day allows you to have a little something everyday but also not to overindulge.
Do a Detox Tea
I talked about this a little bit on my Instagram Stories (be sure to follow me here) but my mom and I occasionally do a detox tea to get back on track. Even if you don't lose 5 pounds in a week, it does help to drink more water everyday, which is essential to healthy eating. My mom and I make Jillian Michael's Detox Tea, which you can find here (and be sure to follow me on Pinterest while you're at it).
Be Patient & Don't be Hard on Yourself
Even if your favorite shorts don't exactly fit at the moment, don't beat yourself up over it. Making these changes take time and you wouldn't see you magically fit back into your clothes overnight. Hang in there and you'll see change sooner than later!
