After a nearly perfect week I overate all weekend, not on junk food, but too much of what I usually eat ..and on top of that I skipped my workout .. The end result is I'm beating myself up this morning.. Why is it sooo easy on weekdays and sooo hard on weekends... I read this article to get it back together.. I thought I'd share :
"If you did have a little too much to eat or drink over the weekend, there are a few things that you can do to help your body flush out toxins and reboot.
Drink water.Weekend junk foods like chips, pizza, french fries, and burgers contain a high amount of sodium. Drink a glass of water every few hours to flush out sodium and decrease bloating.
Eat a large salad with plenty of greens. Greens like kale and spinach contain antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals that are essential for cell repair and regeneration. Flavonoids found in kale like kaempferol and quercetin have been shown to exhibit anti-inflammatory properties in the body.
Sip on green tea. Green tea will give you an energy jolt thanks to a potent mix of caffeine and fat metabolizing properties. Have one cup in the morning and one cup in the afternoon to stimulate your body and mind all day long.
Get back into your gym routine. Youíll likely be feeling sluggish after your weekend overindulgence. Although it may take a little longer to convince yourself to get up and get ready for your workout, donít skip it! If you have to do an easier workout, thatís ok. At least you are up and moving around!
Donít beat yourself up over it. We all have a cheat meal from time to time. Enjoy it, then move on. Donít use a backslide as an excuse to give up on your progress so far.
Well you all know what'll be eating for diner! ;-)
