Protect your hard work this Summer!

A body in motion stays in motion, a body at rest stays at rest. -Lucy Hayhurst

At the gym last week, I was watching a gentleman jump rope when his iPhone jumped out of his pocket and rolled onto the floor. This clearly wasn’t the first time it was dropped… The screen was already shattered. 

I remembered when I bought my iPhone and decided to invest in the extra-strength case and screen protector in order to prevent a similar tragic ending. 

The scenario got me thinking about how much hard work we put into regular exercise and consistently eating a well-balanced diet. Sometimes all it takes is one “wild weekend,” such as Memorial Day at the beach, your baby’s 1st birthday party or a road trip to visit the family, to unravel weeks or months of hard work. 

In order to protect your hard work, WBN recommends implementing strategies or game plan to set yourself up for success. 

Here are a few ways to stay on track no matter where this busy travel season takes you! 

Well-balanced Starter Shake – Before a weekend enjoying “whatever!” I find it helpful to have a fruit and veggie packed smoothie each morning to kickstart my taste buds and my mind onto healthy eating choices. 

Keep on tracking – Even if you do not want to write down or enter 10 chicken wings, a large order of onion rings and 4 beers into myfitnesspal, it is important to stick to the habits, such as a daily food journal, that keep us on track. 

Don’t stop moving – Find ways to incorporate physical activity into your weekend getaways, during the birthday festivities or travel plans. One idea is to try this awesome website one of my clients shared with me:

Remember! A body in motion stays in motion, a body at rest stays at rest. 


Food for thought: 

Rest. Relax. Repeat. 

How are you planning to relax AND stay on track this summer travel season?
