Subject: Post Easter Fitness and Nutrition Tips

Mini Eggs, Chocolate Bunnies, Turkey and Stuffing…a complete smorgasbord of yumminess…Sound like the indulgence of your Easter weekend?

No need to beat yourself up about it, what’s done is done…now lets get back on track.

Here are a few quick tips to course correct:

Meghan’s Nutrition Advice
protein11. Include Protein With Every Meal: Protein will lower the glycemic index of your meal keeping blood sugar in balance.  Balanced blood sugar helps maintain a healthy weight.  Include vegetable sources of protein like bean spreads, nuts, and seeds.  Eggs are also an excellent source of digestible protein.

Coffee cup2. Cut Back On Coffee: Coffee is a stimulant that so many of us rely on everyday.  It gets us going in the morning or keeps us going in the mid-afternoon when we’re having that low-blood sugar attack.  Coffee fatigues our adrenal glands (stress glands) and plays with our blood sugar levels, exhausting our pancreas.

1 8oz cup of coffee/day is acceptable, if you continue to crave it address your diet and increase your sleep.  Don’t quit coffee cold-turkey, wean yourself off slowly to diminish any negative effects of withdrawal.

Eva’s Fitness Advice
music11. Turn up the Tunes: Working out with music helps you stay motivated and stick to your exercise program. Exercise can be as easy to achieve as taking 3, 10 minute walks a day. Next time you decide to head out, turn on the tunes and put a little energy into your step!

eva2. Exercise with a Motivator: Women who received positive feedback while exercising, such as “great job or you can do it ladies” find working out more enjoyable and easier.

Over indulgence is part of the season, don’t be too hard on yourself. Use these tips to move forward with a little support.

Getting back on track is up to you. Stop cursing the Easter Bunny, plan your week and get back to what you were doing before the holidays.

Good luck and be well,

Meghan and Eva
