BUT I HAVE A HOLIDAY
Something I get a lot from ladies on the programme or just about to start is that
They’re worried they can’t do it as they have a holiday..
And I get that
Especially as usually a ‘diet’ or exercise programme might require you to:
- Be religiously on it or you’ll be deemed a failure
- Attend an exercise session or you completely miss out
And getting messages like this really helps me give you what you want..
Which is why we have now introduced LIVE yoga and home workouts into our 4 week Kickstart Programme.
Because I get you’re busy.
Even without cramming things in before a holiday..
There’s work, too
And knowing that you can save 10, 20 or even 30 minutes of a commute sometimes just to get the workout in at home ?
Might just help you stay on track on your ‘busiest’ day
And if you can do it on your busiest of days?
Then when can’t you?
And – yes – if you miss the live yoga or workout?
You can catch up with the replay.
Or just come and see me in person ☺
I posted about 8 things you can do to no completely fall of the bandwagon on holiday
Whilst still enjoying yourself
The other day
And it was lovely to receive this message from Helen:
“I would like to dedicate Kylie’s ‘I just can’t get you out of my head’, to Matt who
has just spent a virtual two and a half weeks in Alaska!!
I did what I said I would do at least 80% of the time whilst still enjoying treats and wine.
The result, for the first time ever, is that I have lost weight on holiday rather than gaining as usual. Not a lot, almost a kg but way better than my usual 2 to 3 kg gain.
Thank you for your advice and help Matt.🍷”
So, here’s a few tips to not completely fall off the wagon on holiday but still have a life:
1. Go Explore (as I know you will) –
Get walking. No, you don’t NEED a gym. Go explore the local areas and – if possible – avoid taxis and public transport.
When on my honeymoon in the Caribbean (yes, somehow I am still married)
I don’t think we would have seen such beautiful places if it wasn’t for some of the walking we did.
2. Think “full” and “satisfied” –
It can be difficult to get enough protein in when you’re away
but it will help keep you full and satisfied. fill your plate with fish, beans, lean meats etc.
(accompanied with fruit and veggies for your fibre and don’t forget WATER with every meal!!)
3- Eat less often but when you do…GO BIG? –
This strategy is useful for when you’re exploring and out and about.
For example, you might have a big, satisfying breakfast (think eggs) but then not eat again until the evening
which kind of means you have a fast and allows you to have some flexibility to enjoy local food?
So, by not picking throughout the day and sticking to “usual” meal times (e.g. lunch)
it means you can still enjoy your favourite food and drinks and minimise the possibility of overeating.
4- Focus on company NOT food
5- Aim for pretty good NOT perfect
6- Remind yourself there’s a difference between being ‘full’ and ‘having enough’ and use the 50% rule
The 50% rule means looking at your dinner and assessing whether you are still hungry when half of your plate is gone.
Eat another 50% of what is left and assess again.
7- Remember you are choosing what you eat. You’re not missing out. You’re aligning your actions / behaviours with your goals.
8- Walk around the buffet before picking up a plate
Finally, don’t stress too much. The stress and worry is probably more detrimental than the mojitos by the pool 😉
And don’t forget that you’re on holiday to enjoy yourself and create memorable moments that you’ll cherish forever.
After all, life is for living.
And if your ‘diet’ doesn’t allow you to drink, enjoy your favourite foods, and go on holiday?
You might need a new one if you want to keep the weight off for good…
If you’re waiting for the perfect time before you start
then you probably have things the wrong way round.
