Let’s face it, we all make mistakes in our fitness routines. For me, it’s IPA and cookies. They’re like kryptonite to me!
Lifehacker has a great tip! If you slip up and eat an unhealthy meal, make sure to follow it up with a healthy one. Vow to never have two unhealthy meals in a row. That’s it! In a quote by NerdFitness:
If you eat a bad meal, make the next one a healthy one…no exceptions! Opt for the side salad instead of extra french fries. Get grilled chicken instead of breaded chicken. Eat a healthy snack instead of more cookies and crackers. The goal here isn’t to stay 100% on track, but rather to keep your momentum so it’s easier to get back on track at the end.
That’s all there is too it. Get back on track! (and still enjoy your vacation or trip…. or IPA).
