When the work week is over, it's time to party! However, that doesn't mean you need to stop eating healthy and dehydrate yourself. If you're looking to improve your health habits over the weekend, check out the tips below. They just might improve your lifestyle!
1. Water When You Wake Up
The first thing you should do in the morning is heat up some water and add a slice of lemon. By drinking hot water with lemon, you can kick start your metabolism and feel refreshed first thing in the day. The lemon will help you better digest food, keep your teeth clean and help relieve headaches.
2. Hydrate Before Meals
By drinking a glass of warm water before meals, you can make yourself feel fuller and avoid stuffing your face. You can also keep yourself hydrated which will result in better digestion and more energy.
3. Plan a Meal for Sunday
If you know you are going out for a night on the town, make sure you intend on sitting down for dinner on Sunday. By planning a healthy, home cooked meal you will create an opportunity to ground yourself while providing enough nutrients to heal the damage the weekend has done.
4. Treat Yourself Once a Week
Save your calories for the weekend and treat yourself once a week. By scheduling a break in your diet, you can feel satisfied and still enjoy sweet treats. This doesn't have to be a major break, just a special treat that can recognize how hard you worked during the week.
5. Don't Stress Out!
If you overeat or don't drink enough water during the weekend, don't sweat it. There are five days in the week that can allow you to make up for it. Stressing out too much is much worse than eating too many brownies or not exercising enough.
