Our Top 10 Ways to Stay On Track During The Weekend
Happy Friday, #CSEtribe! Don’t give up on Friday just because it’s the end of a long week and you’re tired and your groceries are running low....and AND! AND! The list of excuses for why you could get off track could go on and on (don’t I know it!). Here are 10 tips to set yourself up for a winning weekend!
#1 - Meal prep before the weekend
Having simple snacks on hand (like this power punch lunchable!) are key to staying on track!
#2 - Plan your workout
I always will schedule my workouts in advance so I’m not tempted to skip them or let life get in the way! Even a 20-30 minute HIIT helps get your metabolism going.
#3 - Repeat a recipe that you love
Maybe your favorite burger or pizza! I’m all about those weekend vibes! That’s why all the CSE entrees are interchangeable, so you can eat any meal and still stay on track.
#4 - Use our Fast Food Guide
If you’re going to dine out, use the Fast Food Guide or look up the restaurant menu ahead of time. Find an option that has a good balance of lean protein, carbs, and healthy fats.
#5 - Eat something on plan before dining out
Speaking of eating out, if you are going out for lunch or dinner, it’s WAY better to eat out if you eat something before that’s “on plan.” Start your morning with a shake or finish your last salad jar so you don’t show up to a restaurant starving.
#6 - Invite people over
Have people over instead of going out. Cook something on plan and show them that eating healthy can be DELICIOUS! It takes the pressure off of making hard food choices at a restaurant where you can’t control what’s on the menu.
#7 Avoid trigger foods
You know those foods that once you pop, you can’t stop?! Try the Chips & Cheesy Chile Dip or Kickin’ Avo Toast if you’re craving something salty! Whip up the Dark Chocolate Cherry Shake, PB Lover’s Ice Cream or Chocolate Chip Mug Cake to curb your sweet tooth!
#8 - Drink plenty of water
Staying hydrated is always our #1 priority. Carry a water bottle and get those fluids in! Not only does drinking water help reduce bloat, but it will help you stay fuller longer.
#9 - Take it one day at a time
If you have a bad meal or a bad day, don’t let it turn into a bad weekend! You can always jump right back on the plan
#10 - Everything in moderation
If you’re going out to eat, try to keep your meal within your TDEE (download our CSE app and set the deficit to maintenance to find this #)
