How To Recover After Too Many Treats
I’m writing this the day after Valentine’s Day….so as you probably have guessed – I had waaay too many treats. Now what? Well, as easy as it would be to throw in the towel and focus on the pounds I didn’t lose yesterday (and the bloat gained today) – I can’t do that and neither should you. I’m following our Get Fit Done guide and am on the Week 2 Meal Plan (this week is high-protein to build muscle). So….Valentine’s cookies don’t really fit on that plan. Here is what I plan to do today and over the next few days to get back on track:
Start Now. Don’t wait until tomorrow to start over. Each hour and day you “give up” and eat bad adds up and before you know it you have gotten waaay off track. However, few treats or even a bad day will not wreck your plan.
Eat Very “Clean”. Avoid anything packaged and try to really focus on eating veggies, fruits and lean meats. This also means cutting out sugar. If you have our guide, try the Kale Quinoa Salad for lunch or dinner (add some extra protein if you want) or the Veggie Rainbow Lasagna is a family-friendly recipe that is great to help you detox!
Sweat Twice A Day. I’m not talking 2 hour gym sessions! Just fit in 2 mini workouts. If you are following me and Megan on the plan – do your scheduled workout for today then also add in an extra 20 minute walk or run or play outside with your kids or dog. Just do a little something extra to sweat a little more.
Drink Up! Make sure you drink lots of water the day after indulgences. It will help your body get rid of all of the extra (fill in the blank here: sugar, fat, alcohol, etc). Plus, it makes you feel fuller and is great for your skin and other organs.
If you still haven’t checked out our plan you can read about it HERE! You don’t have to start at any certain point and each week is interchangeable. I’ve already heard from many people that really liked Week 1’s meal plan and are going to repeat that next week instead of doing Week 3 and that’s totally fine!
