“I’ll start after my holiday”
“I’m too unfit to start”
I get it…
Holiday is a time to relax, unwind, and have memorable moments with those that mean the most to you!
Mojitos by the pool.
Enjoying all the great, local foods.
So you think you have 2 choices:
1) Go to the Daily Mail and pick up the latest crazy bikini diet where you cut all of your carbs, deprive yourself of chocolate, sweets, and prosecco, and…be pretty miserable… or H-Angry as Mrs Fruci says
^^^ Yep, I did this, too. And it’s a great way to set yourself up to pile the weight back on…again!
2) Do nothing and start when you’re back as they’ll be less things getting in the way
Now, I’ve tried number 2 as well.
You binge anyway on holiday
Anticipating that once you’re back
You’ll have no birthday parties with tempting, lucisous cakes
No BBQs or days out with the family and friends (where the prosecco is flowing and everyone is eating ice cream)
And all these ‘stories’ stopping you from taking action
Will be gone.
So it will be ‘easier’
They’ll always be afternoon tea
They’ll always be birthday cake (it seems to be someones birthday everyday in the office, right?)
And you’ll always have social events with family and friends
^^^ After all, that’s why you want to get fit, be more healthy, be an inspiration to others, and feel more confident in your favourite clothes, right?
So, my advice to you?
Even if it’s the smallest change (drinking more water for example)
Make it so simple that you can STICK to it.
Before you know it?
You’ll be DOING all of the things you said you would do to get the things you say you want
Without relying on willpower
Becuase only does DOING crush your anxiety (120% of the time)
And it can also help you enjoy your holidays and meals out with with friends and family… and still tone up..
Just like myself and members on my 90-Day Body Transformation Programme do
And here’s 3 simple strategies we use to avoid piling the weight back on at social events and when on holiday:
1) Go Explore –
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, I don’t think we would have seen such beautiful places if it wasn’t for some of the walking (and bike tours) we did.
2) Think “full” and “satisfied” –
It can be difficult to get enough protein in when you’re away (unless you’re all-inclusive) but it will help keep you full and satisfied.
Lean meats, fish, beans etc. (accompanied with fruit and veggies for your fibre and don’t forget WATER).
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 with your favourite pastries but then not eat again until the evening where you indulge in some local food, cake, and cocktails (obviously).
But, 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.
Finally… don’t stress too much.
And don’t forget that you’re on holiday to enjoy yourself and create memorable moments that you’ll cherish forever.
Just like members Billy, Julie, and Mel recently did whilst away…
Enjoying cream teas, pistachio cake and vino
Without piling the weight back on
