TOO MANY CHRISTMAS TREATS? (How to get back on track)

They say most people gain an average of 5-7 lbs during Christmas.  Id say more like 10-15 lbs… 🙂 lol… but I digress.

Some people have iron strength will and eat healthy all through Christmas…..  who are these people and where were they born?

If your anything like me, I eat any and all of the treats and food, and I never worry about it.  I don’t count calories or feel guilty or any of that crap.  I have the rest of the year for that right?!

I am really into healthy living and so every year for Christmas I get new health and fitness related gifts.  Its awesome because I cant wait to start using my new things, and it motivates me to have a fresh start!  This year I got a yoga mat, new running shoes, a new ninja blender for my protein shakes, onesie pjs and tons of new face masks and spa stuff.  I am going to be #selfcarequeen2019

As a girl who can lose 10 lbs in a week and also gain 10 lbs in a week I am going to share how I get back on track after Christmas

START MY MORNINGS WITH WARM LEMON WATER

I help my body flush the extra toxins and waste by drinking a glass of warm lemon water before I drink or eat anything else.  This helps me start my day off on a good foot and helps with my H20 intake for the day.  Click here for why I drink warm lemon water every morning, Christmas or not.

DRINK AT LEAST 3L OF WATER A DAY

To tie into point number one, I make sure I am drinking at least 3 L a day.  This helps reduce bloat, brain fog and helps my body eliminate the excess acids in the blood stream.

TRY TO FAST UNTIL NOON

Or better yet, I try to only eat between 12pm-8pm.  This Intermittent fasting gives my body the extra energy it needs to repair and replenish.  It will spend more time detoxing my body and less time digesting more food.  I give my body as much time as possible to be at rest and not constantly digesting food.  This will help get rid of bloat, a couple of those extra lbs and make me feel more energetic.

EXERCISE FOR AT LEAST 30 MINUTES

I break a sweat for a minimum of 30 minutes a day.  I focus more on cardio after big events like Christmas because it helps my stomach feel flatter and less bloated and I have the extra energy to burn!  But whatever you do- get a sweat going and work off some of that Christmas Dinner.  It releases feel good chemicals too 🙂

SPEND TIME IN THE SAUNA

Getting into the sauna after a workout is probably the best feeling ever.  Saunas help us to sweat, release toxins and bloat.   It is also a really nice way to de stress and spend some quite time after the hectic Christmas season.

HAVE A DETOX BATH

I do these regardless, but its a perfect time to do a detox bath too.  Put in some essential oils, epsom salts, put on some nice music and let your body do the rest.  Click here for my ultimate detox bath recipe.

I go from sugar coma, tired, lethargic and bloated…. too feeling energetic, hydrated and slim again in no time!

On to the new year!
