5 Tips for getting on track after vacation
If you’re like me, you’ve probably been working on your bikini body for the past couple of months in preparation for a fun beach trip or weekend at the pool. You’ve been dedicated to your workouts, macros are counted and cardio has been completed for weeks on end- but what happens post vacay? Oftentimes once a goal has passed or routine gets interrupted it’s hard to get back on track, not to mention that bloated feeling can come with the post vacation blues. Here are a few tips for getting back to your old self after taking a little time off to relax.
• Hydrate – hydrate hydrate. If your body is holding water from extra sodium or alcohol the key is to drink a ton of water. The more water you drink the less your body will hold on to, so shoot for at least a gallon a day. Add MRM HXF Hydration Factor to ensure deep tissue hydration and make sure you’re replacing lost electrolytes.
• Get your fruits and veggies in – Vacations foods are not likely to be high in fiber or vitamins so your body will be lacking and craving both. Aim to have a fruit or vegetable with every meal to make sure you’re getting in fiber and your micronutrients as well.
• Have a workout plan – Whether it’s repeating the program you were using or starting something new, don’t wait around to get back in a routine. Going to the gym without a plan will usually not result in the best workout, so pick something and stick with it.
• Don’t worry about the scale – Like I mentioned earlier, your body is probably holding on to extra water due to a variety of reasons, and this may show on the scale. Give yourself a few days to rehydrate and balance your body back out.
• Treat yourself – You may be holding toxins from alcohol or your back may be aching from toting around luggage. Either way a message can do wonders for releasing those toxins and helping your muscles recover as well as leave you feeling refreshed and ready to tackle your next workout. Opt for a sports or deep tissue massage to really hit all the problem areas.
