With all the social butterflying around, it’s hard to stay in your best fitness shape year round. Between feeling too tired (ahem, hungover?) to work out or eating hot dogs and margaritas every weekend, your waist line isn’t thanking you. That’s why it’s so important to keep a healthy schedule during the summer weeks, complete with fun workouts and tasty nutritious meals. And the key to that? Plan plan plan ahead!
Every Sunday, write out your goals for the week including workouts and meal ideas. Take your meal plan and turn it into a grocery list. Head to the store and pick up the goods. When you get home, prepare as much ahead of time as possible. Chop veggies, make salsas and sauces, marinate meats! Do whatever you can ahead of time. That way, you can quickly assemble healthy meals in no time during your busy week (and indulge a bit on the weekends without wrecking havoc on your body).
Here are some examples of meals I prepare during the week. Easy, quick, healthy and deliciously satisfying!
I enjoy eating oatmeal for breakfast and you can add coconut milk to cook the oats and top it with your favorite fruit. I like Glutenfreeda when I am in a rush and I can pack it in my bag when I travel. My favorite Glutenfreeda oatmeal is Banana Maple.
Spinach Salad with Persian cucumbers, hard boiled egg, olives and fresh mozzarella and seasoned with olive oil and pepper.
Baked Chicken, sauteed mushrooms, sweet potato and sauteed spinach.
If you hit a wall mid-week and can’t make it to the gym, try this at home Basic Workout.
It takes 10 minutes (including a few stretches) and then you’re DONE!!!!!
I filmed this workout to help encourage you to do some exercise even when you don’t feel motivated. Turn this workout on and get moving and I promise you will feel better and will probably be more motivated to do another video right after.
