Easter is only around the corner guys & gals! For months the supermarkets have been packed with chocolate eggs and hot cross buns, ready for you all to purchase and eat.
I’m not going to advise you to eat chocolate, nor eat it in moderation so if this is what you were hoping for (this is not for you,
sorry not sorry).
This is for the serious people and Di1’s who are committed, focused and ready to see out their weight loss/ health goals to the end.
With that being said, here are some tips and motivation for a happy and healthy Easter.
First things first just because it’s Easter does not mean that you skip your regular healthy meals for less healthy ones… if anything, this is a time to stay strong and continue eating well, like you have been doing so far this year. This will be a test of your true character, and you will feel like you have accomplished so much from having this experience under your belt, and you would be right too.
Don’t Forget- to eat plenty of vegetables in your main meal, included whole grain carbs and protein.
Something New For Breakfast
If you feel like you want something other than what you normally eat, cereal or peanut butter on toast.. why not try out some whole grain pancakes, greek yogurt with some fruit or maybe some tomato, mushroom and spinach. After all, life is about trying out new things, right ?
Why does a treat at Easter time have to be around food ? It can just as easily be non- food related , such as spending more time with your loved ones, going away somewhere on a mini vacation, being active with friends or your children. If you are an adult or just feel like treating yourself ( hey why not) how about shopping for some new clothes or investing in a fitness DVD, a cookbook or one of my coaching programs this Easter (Click Here)
Hot Cross Buns Anyone ?
You may not be eating chocolate, but you can always have some hot cross buns. Just make sure they are whole grain, and avoid spreading any sort of jam on them. Why not try toasting them, and then serving them with some berries.
Don’t Skip Your Workouts
It’s very easy to get off track with the holidays, but it’s vital you stay consistent and on track. Do not skip your workouts you have planned, instead work even harder.. because more than likely you will have less time, and just imagine if you can stay consistent at a time like this, then you can stay consistent any time!
Eat some real eggs
Forget the Easter bunny and his chocolate eggs, and opt for mother nature’s ones instead. They are real good for you, so much so I’ve even taken time before to let you guys know about it… (Click Here)
Let’s Be Real Here
If you do any of these things you are setting yourself apart from the rest, I’m referring to the rest of the population that celebrate Easter.
You see it’s easy to do the norm. Even though you know you will not benefit from it, to still do it anyway.
It takes someone who is fed up of making the same old mistake over and over again, it takes someone who is fed up of complaining about not reaching their weight loss/health goals, it takes someone who is tired of making excuses and blaming others for their own bodies and takes full responsibility and it takes someone who cares enough for themselves and their well -being to say “enough is enough it’s time to take action!”.
Some will store this information away and carry on as they were, and some will take this great value, put it into action and see big changes in their lives. The question is what will you do with it ?.
As always it’s been a pleasure to share this with you.
Do let me know though in the comments below..
