It has been a summer of let downs and celebrations, and the evidence is apparent on my hips…and thighs…and tummy – generally all over. A little less activity and a little more relaxed eating has not done this booty good. In my usual groove, I aim to get 6 days of activity in and 6 days of healthy eating. That 7th day I reserve the right to have a cocktail (or two) and a decadent meal or snack. Generally, this lifestyle works well for me. Although recently it has turned into a weekend of more decadent and out-of-the-norm choices for me. The biggest issue, as I see it, is that eating in a less healthy way really affects my mood and how I physically feel. NotSoGood. Since I do better with goals – I’m challenging myself to 30 days of clean, balanced eats and regular fitness activities. Feel free to join in if your body needs a little reboot!

 

Now, I’m not coming up with many crazy rules, but I am going to use these as guidelines:

1. Weekends are not vacations! Stick with activity and healthy eats EVERY DAY OF THE WEEK.

2. Be active everyday. Not balls-to-the-wall. Mix it up. Reward yourself once a week with a gentle yoga class or day of long walks.

3. Get in a positive mental state. Meditate. Journal. Or, just think about giving yourself a break and not feeling guilty, less-than, etc. about anything!
