Holidays are for sure hard to stay on track with health and fitness goals.  There are tons of food around at any party you go to, not much movement besides walking around talking to people, and most likely not much healthy options on the food menu either.  My tips to stay on track today:

1.       Bring a HEALTHY appetizer that you know you can have and not feel guilty about

2.       Bring your OWN SNACKS.  It is a great way to start getting people talking about what you are doing with beachbody, nutrition, workouts and why. Let them know that the 21 day fix nutrition plan is all about and how the 30 workouts are!

3.       Have a SHAKE before you go to the party or a serving of protein in order to fill you up and not be tempted by all the crap food!

4.       Be ACTIVE!  Run around and play with the kids, take a dip in the pool, play outdoor games that involve moving. Don’t just let yourself sit there! And if you have time, get your morning 30 minute workout in!

5.       HELP OUT!  With set up, getting other people plates, clean up.  Extra hidden calorie burn right there!

6.       Drink plenty of WATER!  There are sure to be lots of high calorie beverages.  If you must have an alcoholic one, choose vodka and seltzer.

7.       Do NOT wear loose fitting clothing.  Dress to impress so you see how hard you have worked to get to where you are on your fitness journey.

8.       Recognize when you are full! Do not linger around the food tables picking all day.  Have a meal, eat, and move along!

9.       BE CONFIDENT!  Don’t worry about what other people think with your healthy choices.  Fill that plate up with veggies, protein, and the good food choices to fuel that body!

10.   HAVE FUN! It is a holiday so be sure to celebrate with family and friends!

It is easy to give into temptation but the guilt the next day is not work it.  The powerful feeling of saying NO to bad choices makes you feel so good afterwards.  STAY ON TRACK. BE GOOD, BE HEALTHY! HAPPY 4TH OF JULY!
