Last Monday was January 1st, however most people I know were still on holiday mode and officially started their “new years resolutions” today!
So if you started working towards those fitness goals today, feeling that holiday bloat, this post is for you! I for one went up exactly 8.8 lbs last month..oops! Already dropped 4.6, working on that last bit to get back to normal this week. How did I do this without cutting calories drastically?
- I typically drink 1 gallon of water a day because that’s what my body asks for. During the holidays however, I felt myself getting dehydrated because I was barely hitting half a gallon of water a day. So this passed week I over did the water with 2 gallons every day. Flavored it with lemon because blehhh I need flavor in my life. Peed my life away, got re-energized, got rid of a lot of the bloat! This week I am back to my regular 1 gallon a day
- I worked out!!
- I cut out all the processed junk and ridiculous amounts of sugar. Basically went back to my whole foods, healthy diet. Overdosed on antioxidants (fruits and veggies galore).
- I caught up on my sleep. Ironically, I didn’t get much rest during the holidays. Catching up on sleep helps reduce internal stress levels. When your body is less stressed it’s more inclined to get rid of weight.
- Started my 21 Day Cleanse
Was the 8.8 lbs all fat? Definitely not! Last week the weight was honestly just bloat, water retention, backed up plumbing. The weight I tackle this week to get back to my normal weight is more than likely going to contain some fat, and therefore may not come off as quickly.
Good Luck with the post holiday de-bloating and remember I am always here to help you!
