Weekend Survival Fat Loss Tips

The weekend is almost here! The weekend is a time we all look forward to but for some people can be a danger zone for their fat loss progress.

Today I will share with a you a few simple tips to get through the weekend with out putting your fat loss efforts at risk!

1.) Planning & Preparation

Take a look at what your weekend looks like before you dive right in to the good times! I know this time of year can be very busy especially for moms we have lots of activities like social gatherings and taking kids to sports activities.

If you know you are going to spend a few hours out at a little league game take some time the night before to prepare some healthy snacks, chop up some veggies, package some ready to eat fruit, make your own sandwiches or meals that you can take with you and don’t forget the water!

Prepare yourself and the other family members in advance by letting them know that most of the food at the ‘snack bar’ is unhealthy and by planning and preparing food in advance there should be no reason for hot dogs, nachos and sodas.

You will feel a lot better when you get home because you didn’t stop your fat loss efforts and also for helping your family make better choices as well!

2.) Don’t Skip Breakfast

Mom was right. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day! A research group analyzed government data on 4,200 adults. They found that regular breakfast eaters were more likely to exercise regularly. And women who ate breakfast regularly tended to eat fewer calories overall during the day.

Try a breakfast with some protein and some complex carbohydrates to start your day, like a 2 egg scramble with some spinach and mozzarella cheese and a few strawberries or apple slices. Or keep it super simple and almost indulgent and invest in a really great meal replacement or protein powder and make yourself a quick shake in the morning! Here is a link to a great recipe you can try: Peanut Butter Banana Breakfast Shake

A good breakfast will keep you full and satisfied and less likely to indulge in the foods that don’t support your fat loss efforts.

3.) Keep on Movin’

When you are following tip number one and planning out your weekend, make sure you plan some time for a workout or some type of activity where you are moving your body!

You can plan a workout for yourself or yourself and some friends, you can plan a walk with the family or plan a more rigorous hike, maybe a bike ride, maybe shooting hoops with the kids or heading to the gym for some time with yourself. Whatever you choose make sure you have it planned in to your weekend and other stuff gets planned around it that way it is one priority that will get done.

I am sure if you choose one or all of the tips above you will not only have a very successful weekend but you will feel better on Monday morning! And you won’t have to worry about getting back on ‘the wagon’ because you will have never fallen off!

Take good care, until next time!
