We complain about our weight and lifestyle and tell ourselves that next year we will be better. We have the motivation, our mind is ready to start fresh, but then we find ourselves sinking back into those bad habits. It can be so hard to switch to a healthy lifestyle when we come home at the end of the day and want to eat whatever is in front of us. And even worse, the stress makes us seek comfort foods, you know what that means… chocolate, chocolate, chocolate! We can all relate to this and that’s why we are here.
This seems like it is a lot of work but in reality, it takes away all the stress and time you’ll spend cooking throughout the week. Instead, set aside a few hours on Sunday and prepare all your meals for the week. This way, when you come home from work or school all you’ll have to do is pop the food in the microwave or oven, and voila, you’ll have a healthy meal ready for you.
Make Healthy Alternatives
If you can’t seem to kick the sweet tooth that’s okay it’s important to treat yourself sometimes! Instead, indulge in something that you won’t feel guilty about like healthy desserts made from oats or bananas. You can even add in some dark chocolate! This way your cavings will be satisfied and you won’t feel guilty about it, which you shouldn’t!
Water is the solution to basically everything! Drinking water throughout the day will keep you fuller between meals and also provide you with many other benefits like oxygen throughout your body, improving your skin and health, regulating your body temperature, and boosting your digestive system!
Remove The Junk
If your home is filled with chips, cookies, ice cream, you name it, then get rid of it! Of course, you’re going to be persuaded to eat these items when they are lying around your home! Instead replace them with fruits and vegetables, and low-calorie ice cream like halo top. Fill your home with healthy options so you don’t have to see the unhealthy food every day you come home.
