When life gets in the way…..or does it?

 

The month of August has posed to be quite full of social events for me which is so out of the ordinary, I feel like Im 20 again! Summer is usually the hardest for most of us. We all know what that means…a poor diet and lack of exercise, BUT does it have to be that way?

NO! Its been almost a straight month of social gatherings yet Im fit and tight. How you ask? Dedication! Yes I indulged and enjoyed every moment I had with friends and family, I am a firm believer in taking advantage of such precious times but what I also did, was be sure to get my training in daily (even if it was a jog around my neighborhood) and also kept my eating clean every chance I got. Just because you are at a restaurant doesn’t mean you have to throw your eating habits out the window and indulge in the fettuccini alfredo…you always have choices, just make the best one.

Life will throw you curveballs and get in the way but its your consistency that will take you to where you want to be. No one is perfect in this world and therefore no diet or training regimen is perfect either. Don’t get down on yourself and think you have to give up, get right back on the wagon.

Im sure you have put hours in at the gym and food prep, why waste all of that?

Tips to stay on track:

-get up 20minutes earlier and do a plyo circuit  before your day gets started

-order smart (steamed vegetables, dressing on the side of salads)

-alternate a glass of water with your beverage of choice

-suggest active activities to do with friends and family (ie walk, run, rollerblade, hike, participate in a charity event)

-eat clean snacks before attending bbq’s/dinners so you eat less of the bad stuff
