You may indulge in a few alcoholic beverages this weekend so be sure to drink lots of water! Alternate alcoholic beverages with water. This will prevent dehydration and prevent a hangover. Add lemon to your water to replenish electrolytes. You’ll feel great the next day and won’t miss a morning workout!
2. Get up early and get in a good sweat!
You may overindulge a little this weekend and that’s ok, however it’s a good idea to crush a PPW before the barbecues and festivities begin! If you wait too long the day will get away from you and chances are you won’t fit it in, so get moving early!!
3. Go for lean meats when barbecuing this weekend!
Load up on chicken, fish and veggies! And stay away from condiments! Those sauces are loaded with sugar and fat and those calories add up! Choose fruit instead! Make a fresh pineapple salsa to add to burgers, brats and hotdogs. It’s also a great dressing for fish and chicken.
4. Weekend Parties: NEVER go hungry!
Grab a handful of almonds or an apple with all natural peanut butter before heading out to parties.
This will prevent you from overeating and you will make better choices. If you don’t love it, leave it!… Indulge in the things you love but don’t pick at foods that aren’t worth your calories.
5. Most importantly, enjoy yourself!
Portion control is important but don’t stress out over every calorie. Get in a few PPWs this weekend, hydrate and have fun with family and friends.
