How to get back on track after festival/holiday
We have returned from our mini getaway, had so much fun and lots of delicious food! Was I on Keto all the way? I'd be lying if I said yes 🤣🤣However! I am totally ok with that! Because life is all about balance, I am on Keto way of eating because I want to feel good. Yes on some occasions I do want some holiday food, I allow myself to keep mentally happy!
After having indulging moments, many struggle to get back on track. As I started my Keto way of eating since 2017, through holidays and festival, I am very proud I have been doing quite well to get back on track with some tricks! If you are struggling to get back on track after all the indulgence, here are some tips which you might find useful!
Clean out all the temptation foods and stock up on nutritious food again! It is so important we do not let those temptations stay! It is so easy when we think I will have a bite, turns into we finished the whole bag! The key is to not have the guilty pleasure around, if you are keen to get back on track. Stock up with your healthy food and snacks to make sure you have food to reach out when needed.
Water is your best friend! After all the holiday foods it is totally normal if you feel tired, bloated and yuck! How to get that feeling out of your system? Flush it out and fuel with good food! Aim to drink 2 to 3 litres of water throughout the day. First thing in the morning a full glass always is a good habit to get a kick start! I love to have cucumber, celery and kale juice in the first few days to reset my stomach and taste buds. A squeeze of lemon juice makes it better.
Start your exercise again! At the end of the day you did eat more than you need during special occasions, so if you want to get back on track exercise always helps to shed those extra happy weight you gained
Give it time! Don't expect after 1 week of indulgence that you can lose everything in a day or 2! Be consistent and stick to your routine the weight will eventually come off again.
Meal prep- Most of us will get back to a busy life after holidays. Make sure you meal prep with all the good stuff again to save time and money!
🔴For myself although I do indulge here and there during holiday, but I also make sure I don't go overboard and fit at least one healthy meal a day. The more you let yourself go the longer it will take for you to get back on track. 🔴
The most substantial diet is all about creating healthy habits, be consistent and don't rely on quick fix.
After all, you had fun and good time, stop feeling guilty what you shouldn't have but move on😉💞
