Getting Back on Track After Vacation and Holidays

Now that the 4th of July is over, getting back on track is key! We’ve all been there. You’re working out consistently, you’re eating healthy food, you’re feeling great… and then you go on vacation. When you come home, you spend the next 3 weeks trying to get back into a routine but you can’t seem to find your groove. Workouts are sporadic. Meals are hit or miss. Your whole routine seems to have gone out the window. But vacation doesn’t have to throw you off your game! [1]

Making a few things non-negotiable upon return is the key to looking and feeling better quickly:

  • fill up on fiber-rich foods
  • rehydrate
  • catch up on sleep
  • stock up on groceries
  • opt for a salad at lunch
  • schedule your exercise
  • tame your social life
  • and more! [1][2][3]

Vacation is meant to be enjoyed! So stop beating yourself up over that slice of key lime pie or those sweet margaritas! Sometimes you just have to let it go in order to move on. It’s easy to get caught up in the mindset that you’ve already “blown it” so why keep trying? But hello, this is about moderation! Some days are salad, some days are pie! [1]
