Weekend Wipe-Out; Don’t Sabotage Your Hard Work!

on February 17, 2012

It’s the weekend…
Time to get sloppy and relax. Eat, drink, and be merry…right?

During the week you make your schedule to work out, get in your cardio, your strength training, and your flexibility training.

You eat a healthy breakfast each morning, and have a good snack, lunch, and dinner of normal proportions. Alcohol? Perhaps, but not too much.

Weekend comes, and out go all your inhibitions. Lots of alcohol for a friends’ party out at a club; big breakfast with family including sausages and bacon; dinner out at a nice restaurant…the list goes on.

It’s great to enjoy a nice meal out or some wine, but don’t forget about all your hard work during the week! You went to the gym, exercised, broke a sweat, and burned some calories. You watched what you ate.

Weekends are a time to charge your batteries and enjoy yourself, but don’t give up your weeks’ worth of healthy eating and exercise for a breakfast buffet and drinks at the bar.

If you can sneak in some exercise, even better. Go for a walk, swim in the local indoor pool during colder months, take a yoga class, run around with your kids…try to spend at least 20-30 minutes on Saturday and Sunday doing some sort of movement where you can feel your heart beating just a little bit faster.

Your body with thank you for it on Monday!

Enjoy your weekend…guilt free!

I would love to hear about your activity plans for this weekend, do you have anything planned?
