Hello, hello!! Oh, Lord, what a weekend!! We had such a fun time and the wedding was absolutely gorgeous. Lauren looked beautiful and I’m so happy for her
The wedding was in an aquarium and I thought it was the neatest thing! During the cocktail hour we were free to roam the entire aquarium.
I even got to pet a shark and that I thought that was pretty stinkin’ original. He was a quick little guy!
Even though I had a wonderful time, my body is begging me to detox. Especailly after eating Burger King at 1:30 in the morning after the wedding…
During a 9-hour car ride, I had more than enough time to reflect on how yucky I felt due to the BK, lack of sleep and too many cocktails in a two-day period.
I’ve berated myself a little bit, but I don’t like doing that – so I’ve written down a few tips for myself to help get me back on track and I’ll share ‘em with you!
- Hydrate Water, water, water! I didn’t drink much of it this weekend because I was either downing vodka sunrises or I was abstaining from all liquids because I was in the car for 9 hours and didn’t want to have to stop every five seconds!
- Sleep It was my gut instinct to set an early alarm and hit the gym first thing this morning in order to sweat out all the “toxins,” but I was feeling dehydrated, void of substantial nutrients and exhausted! I slept in and my workout routine will either start back up this afternoon or tomorrow morning. No big deal.
- Fuel I’m certainly not going to diet or restrict foods this week, but I am going to bulk up my meals with veggies, protein and healthy carbs and fats. Skipping lunch and having cheesecake for dinner won’t fly this week
- Relax I can’t fret over the foods I ate over the past 3 days. I had such a fun weekend and I wasn’t stressing about eating healthy. I think that’s actually a big component of healthy living: letting go every now and then and not worrying about it.
I think those are some easy points to help anyone get back on the healthy bandwagon after a weekend of celebrating. It’s important to remember that life is far too short to let food run your life. I’ve been there and it’s no fun. The other side is so much better!
Have you ever let food get in the way of you having fun? Like I said, I used to a few years ago – but I’m so much more lax about things these days and it’s wonderful!
What are your go-to tips for getting back on the healthy living train after a celebratory weekend?
Do you like greasy foods after a night out on the town? It’s a must for me!
