I’m rarely an extremist, and this applies to weekends at the cottage. Are you going away for Canada Day? Or to my southern friends the soon to be celebrated Fourth of July? Here’s how I manage the indulgences without dumping on all of the work I put in this week.
Non-negotiable packing items:
- Canada shirt
- Running shoes
That balanced list pretty much sums up my outlook on the weekend. Will I have burgers and potato chips and beer? Obviously! But I’ve also planned a run on Saturday morning with my girlfriends. Long weekends are made for celebrating, relaxing and hanging out with friends. Don’t get hung up on every calorie or missing a workout.
Here’s a couple more things:
- Before you leave have a green smoothie
- Bring a couple resistance bands for an easy workout for you and any friends that want to join
- Eat healthy snacks (I’m bringing bars, individually packaged protein powder, snap peas, carrots, and apples)
- Drink lots and lots of water (alternate water / beer / water / beer)
Oh and how about this one … HAVE FUN!!!!
