Y’all know I love sugary foods – and for a chocoholic Easter is a dangerous time of year.
An even more dangerous situation is when it is Easter AND you are going away for the long weekend!
Well you know when you leave the house wether it is an over night trip or a week away it is automatically holiday time and Calories don’t count.
It’s like an unwritten rule.
Like at airports – doesn’t matter what time of day it is it is totally socially acceptable to drink or in my case eat a packet of peanut M&M’s at any time of day.
So I want to give you my TOP SECRETS on how I DON’T blow out on holidays and still eat whatever the f*ck I want.
1 – FASTING: Not eating for a prolonged period of time (12-16 hours) gives your digestive system a chance to catch up on all the crap you’ve been shovelling in, will leave you feeling flatter, more energetic and you’ll actually feel hungry when you eat!
WHAT I DO:
Miss breakfast all together…. The first meal is lunch – this option will save you time, money and calories. No rushing to get up and get out to find somewhere for breakfast – no paying for breakfast – more calories to consume later in the day.
So if you are a huge breakfast lover this already sounds horrible and you are ready to click da faq out of this post BUT WAIT!!!!! You can STILL have breaky! Just push it back a little bit – instead of having it as soon as you wake up wait until 11-12 and have ‘Brunch’
2 – BLACK COFFEE:
Good for two reasons:
#1 give you energy without a shit tonne of calories
#2 travelling can leave you constipated (I obviously don’t have this problem) but I use to and I know many women suffer the same thing too – have a black coffee in the morning and it should ease any toilet trouble and leave you feeling a little lighter!
3 – SWEAT:
If you have access to a gym that’s awesome! Jump onto my insta (@chantelmaree) and under ‘Workouts’ in my highlisys I got you covered. If you are in the middle of bum f*ck or somewhere without a gym and all you have is your body I got you to 😉
If you know movement you know the basic body weight exercises right? Like squat, push up, lunge, sit up etc…. write a list of x10 exercises in the notes section of your phone. Each morning choose x3 exercises. With these x3 exercises complete x10 reps of each. Complete 3-5 rounds. Sweat done!
4 – WALK:
Everywhere as much as you can! You are in no rush walk 2km to get your coffee and some lunch – who cares! JUST WALK!
5 – GREEN CAPS:
It is likely you wont eat as many veggies as you usually would so I find a travel friendly aka can fit in my handbag greens sup (I use the brand we stock at RF 7.2 Greens Caps) it is an easy way to get my nutrients in.
6 – BIGGER MAINS LESS SNACKING:
Pretty self-explanatory eat bigger main meals WITH entrees if you please just don’t snack between. Simples 🤷🏼♀️
7 – BE ADVENTUROUS:
I’m ALWAYS down for lounging by the pool and laying around (currently in bed in NYC) but it is great to mix things up and try something new – mini golf hell yeah, surfing sure, stand up paddle boarding wicked, hiking aighttt!! Whatever it is get your family, partner or who ever it is with you and take them on an adventure!
And most importantly have fun, be safe and have a good bloody time where ever you are!
And there you are my secrect to stay lean whilst eating all the delish foods you want 😜
Stay Strong & Stretch,
