NATURAL TIPS TO AVOID WEEKEND WEIGHT GAIN


6 Steps to Stay On Track Over The Weekends
Whether you are a fit gym junkie, or just a ‘regular ol’ girl who is trying to stay fit, I’m sure you come across the problem of sticking to your fitness routine over the weekend. With so many things to do, places to go, meals to eat, sometimes it gets difficult to stick to a healthy diet plan! True?
Believe it or not, even very fit women have weekends and enjoy them too. I know that every individual have different priorities, but if you follow these 6 steps over the weekend, then there is nothing to worry about.

6 Steps to Stay On Track Over The Weekends

1. No Starving Eat Well

Say no to junk food like pizzas, burgers etc. But that doesn’t mean you stick to just fruits and salads. There are tons of healthy things that you can eat without compromising your waistline much. A lot of delicious meals you can have that you won’t believe are healthy. If you stick to such healthy meals and exercise consistently, you can probably also indulge in snacks or drinks every now and then if you really can’t control your urges.
Personally, my diet plans don’t change much over the weekends, mainly because I don’t look at it as a diet and rather, as a lifestyle. However, I understand most people still need a little getting used to, so to them, my advice is to never stay hungry. Have snacks in between meals to kill your urges as that’s the root cause of weekend weight gain.

2. Don’t Forget To Exercise 

I know it’s the weekend and I’m not going to tell you to be one of those people who don’t spend much time with family or friends because they are too busy pumping iron in the gym. It’s the weekend, go out and enjoy, just make sure you schedule a workout session towards the end of the day or early morning.
If too tired, you don’t even have to stick to your normal workout routine, you can simply do some formal exercises like running, cycling or even strength training.
I don’t know about you, but if you ask me, there is nothing like a good cardio session in the morning or at night when I’m done socializing or doing whatever that I need to do over the weekend. If I do it early in the morning, it keeps me energized for the entire day. Exercising at night before a shower and bed, puts me to sleep all calm and relaxed and fresh for the next morning.

3. Get Outdoors

Another reason why people usually “derail” from their workouts and healthy diet plans is when they are out doing something, or somewhere that promotes an unhealthy lifestyle. You can schedule an outdoor or a recreational activity on weekends if you have the time on your hands. You can play a sport, go hiking, swimming, tennis, golf – the list can just go on and on.

4. Plan An Activity

The point is not to just sit around all weekend and be a couch potato! If you don’t have the time for the above activities, you can schedule household chores for the day as well. Like mowing the lawn, vacuuming, jogging to the supermarket and getting your groceries etc. There is nothing better than staying active, constantly snacking and keeping yourself hydrated to stay fit over the weekend. This brings me to the next point. 

5. Stay Fresh And Move Around

Did you know that lack of sleep or not enough sleep plays a huge role in disrupting your fitness routine? Fit people can’t afford to start every single week on a bad note. So, they don’t go out and party into the early morning hours on Friday or Saturday night. They do something much more exciting. They get the rest that they need, and they prioritize their recovery. They also don’t do things like eating themselves into a coma or drinking themselves into a hangover.
In other words, they take care of themselves. And they still have fun by doing fun filled activities that requires them to stay active and move around.

6. Plan For The Week Ahead

The most important thing you can do on a weekend is to prepare yourself for the coming week. Get your healthy groceries and snacks, plan your days, schedule your workouts like upper body on Mondays, Legs on Tuesdays etc. If you have something planned, you are more likely to stick to it.
Start planning this weekend with above fitness guides as they have workout as well as nutrition and supplement plans scheduled according to days. My guides will help you stay fit and strong throughout the week!
