Summer Holiday Survival 101

You can attend your holiday celebrations without feeling deprived!  #forrealyo

 

Here are some tips to help you get through:

BRING along a healthy option to share.  This is a kind gesture, while also guaranteeing a healthy option at your celebration! See some of my favorites linked at the bottom of this blog post!

CHOOSE water FIRST! 

  >> Going for seconds?  No probs!  Gulp down 20-30 ounces first! 

  >> Want the sugar cookie?  Sure thing!  Gulp 20-30 ounces of water FIRST! 

  >> Want a margarita?  Perfect!  Gulp 20-30 ounces (of water, not tequila ;)   first.  

EAT MORE PLANTS. Envision your magic plate when building your meal.  Do your best to not graze--those little bites throughout the day add up!

Make good CHOICES: Choose a vinegar based salad over a mayonnaise based one. Try and open faced sandwich by ditching that half the bun. Small choices make a BIG impact!

STAY active! A holiday is even more reason to move your body with intention.  Get a walk under your belt, a short hike, or run around and play an active game with the kids .  You will feel so much better by keeping your body moving!

→Most importantly, ENJOY yourself!! You are NOT dieting!! You are making making choices that SERVE you. And chances are, you will inspire someone today.  <3
