All of us have New Years resolutions no matter whether or not we choose to publicize them outside our minds. Many of our resolutions tend to focus on healthy eating and exercise. The problem becomes what we desire to do and what we actually do may be two different things entirely.
Overindulgence in just about eveything during the holiday season is common and now that it’s January most of us are likely regretting some of our choices.
Below are 5 easy tips that will help you get on your way to a stealth new you. This is only meant to get you started and get you energized. Good luck!
1. Remove any Soda from the daily regimen.
Do you actually know how much sugar is in 1 can? Trust me, you may not want to know. It’s gross.The average cola contains carbonated water, caramel color, natural flavors, caffeine, phosphoric acid and high-fructose corn syrup.
2. Watch and Understand your Carbs.
Maintaining a balanced diet is very important. Eh hem, having a bowl of spaghetti at 10 pm = bad idea. If you are going to carbo load do it early enough in the day so you have time to burn it off. We suggest you read this to really learn about how to make some good choices with carbs.
3. Drink penty of water.
Our body weight comprises nearly 60 to 70 percent of water and sufficient intake of water is necessary. The only downside to drinking all that water is you may have to hit the bathroom more than you are used to. Water fills you up and will give your complexion an amazing glow. For all of you watching calories, water is the best beverage. Drinking a glass of water 30 minutes before each meal makes you feel fuller, without having consumed any calories at all.
4. Hit the Pavement.
Get out your iphone and headset and hit the pavement. Motivate yourself with some new walking or running shoes. Enjoy the fresh crisp air and some solo time with yourself. Try to hit the pavement at least 3x per week for a minimum of 30 minutes. You can gradually increase on the routine over time.
5. Avoid late night Snacking.
Try to avoid anything after 7 pm. This can be difficult especially if you are running around with the kids. Good planning is key!
