Oh, So You Stuffed Your Face on Thanksgiving? No Probs…Here’s Some Recovery Tips!

Lauryn Evarts is a fitness blogger, health blogger, fashion blogger, and diet blogger from Southern California.

Instead of feeling bad/guilty/pissed/annoyed in regards to the oh-so-f’ning-annoying holiday bloat, try nipping that shit in the bud. What’s done is done. A lot of you have e-mailed me concerned about the holidays. Look, it’s normal to overeat on Thanksgiving. Now it’s time to leave the pity party & take action. Leave the past in the past.

Ya get me ; )?

Here’s some tips/tricks to avoid those holiday LB’s:

1.} Water. Ya, ya, ya. You hear this all the time. There’s a reason it’s number one on the list. Drink it until you feel like you’re about to give birth.

2.} Light alcohol. Since you’ll most likely be drinking more than usu around the holidays, try to avoid it if there’s no celebrations going on. When you do end up drinking, stick to vodka/water, champs, & Pinot grigio [ duhhhh ].

3.} Motivate yourself. If you’re laying around like a slob & complaining, peel yourself from the coach & squeeze in an hour workout. Be productive/disciplined.

4.} Eat clean. Examples? Organic cold cuts, cottage cheese, low-carb bread, berries, any type of vegetable, hummus, black beans, quinoa, fresh soups, arugula salads, kale juice, sexy wheatgrass shots, chickpeas, avocado-anything, turkey roll-ups, sliced cucumber with light cheese, scrambled eggs, tuna fish, blah, blah. Pretty simple, since there’s tons of options!

5.} Green tea. People do not understand how freaking beneficial green tea is. I shoot for two cups a day. It speeds the metabolism, cleanses the system, & contains tons of lovely antioxidants. Bottoms up, sex kittens.

6.} Vitamins. Ok. So lately I have been trying to get my vitamins from food. Calcium, D3, B12, etc. can all be found in the food you’re eating. Why take a pill when you eat something delicious? Speaking of vitamins… try a B12 shot. I love these; find out why here. I recommend one a month.

7.} Tan. Because it just makes everything look better. Some people look best with light skin, if you’re one of those peeps- lucky you. Most people look better with a lil’ bit of spray. You can find tanning tips here.

8.} Kick up your workouts. Whatever you’re used to doing throughout the year, kick it up a notch. You’ll feel better & you’ll look better. No excuses!

9.} Stop projecting negativity. To look fab, you have to feel fab. Beating yourself up isn’t the answer. Changing the solution to your problem is.

10.} MyFitnessPal app. Now for the best tip evs…Get the app called MyFitnessPal; if you’re freaking about not going cray, cray this holiday season this is a real problem solver. It seriously, really, without a doubt keeps yo ass in check.

So. Stop feeling bad for yourself & change your tune. 

Because.no.one.else.is.going.to.do.it.for.you.

+ Whole Foods Market Recipes app: my girlfriend, Lisa recommended this one & after reading through the recipe index, I’m hooked.

Definitely will be using Whole Foods fabulous recipe for “Simply Delicious Homemade Hummus.”

+ MyFitnessPal app: Elena, my workout partner/friend, uses this app to keep herself on track. She raves over it; I tried the other day & it’s pretty spectacular. It asks for your weight, height, goal weight, birthday & then calculates how many calories you should eat a day to achieve your goal weight in record time. Although I am not a big calorie counter, this app is ideal for someone who really wants to watch their diet & attain life-changing results. Also note: MyFitnessPal was featured as a winner on the Dr. Oz Show.
