June Slim-Down Challenge: Day 1 – June 1, 2014

Thanks for joining us during this challenge! The purpose of this calendar is to push yourself to do something each day you might not normally do. So, let’s begin!

Today’s challenge is to begin a food journal. Get a notepad and begin to take note of every single thing that you put into your mouth. Drinks included! Writing things down makes it real. Oh, no one saw you eat the corner of that brownie? Well, your journal did!

Take time to write down servings, time of day and how you felt after. This isn’t about anyone or anything but YOU. The journal acts as a method to document your feelings, learn about eating patterns (stress-eating, over-eating, not eating the right things, etc.) and to understand how your body and mind work together.

So get to it! Let us know if you have any questions in the comment section.

5 Killer Tips To Stay Healthy At Coming Parties

Getting ready to head to a party and worried about what impact it may have on your progress? If so, you need to get prepared. Proper preparation before attending a party is the best way to combat the typical high calorie intake that goes with them.

Here’s how.

Prepare A Juice Before You Go
Having something to take the edge off hunger is the best way to prepare yourself to avoid overeating. Consider whipping up a green juice smoothie using a nutribullet before you leave. You’ll get a high dose of nutrients and will feel energized all night long.

If you don’t have time to make your own, consider a Control Shake. It’ll keep you feeling satisfied so you reduce how much you eat.

Add A Little Extra Exercise
Going for a brisk walk before the party is not only going to help burn off some extra calories, but it’ll also put you in a healthier frame of mind. When you’ve done something positive for your body already, you’ll be less likely to indulge.

Plus, the activity can also help to reduce hunger as well.

Bring Your Own Healthy Side Dish
Bringing your own healthy side dish to the party is also a great way to know there will be something healthy there you can eat. If all that’s available is high-calorie, high fat options, you have no choice but to eat what’s served.

Avoid that problem by bringing your own.

Stand Away From The Table
Finally, make sure you position yourself away from the food table during the night. The closer you stand to it, the more likely you’ll be to reach for a snack when you shouldn’t.

So keep these tips in mind next time you’re heading to a party and you can make sure you enjoy yourself while keeping your diet on track.
