Plan your meals for the week and save time, money, and BE HEALTHY!
There's nothing worse than coming home after a long day of work and being expected to prepare a meal. You are tired and will most likely end up calling in for a pizza or choosing something else that strays away from eating healthy. Bypass this dilemma and choose a day that works with your schedule and plan your meals out for the week. This way, when you get home, you can heat up what you have already prepared and had a healthy meal with minimal work preparing it.
Do everything you can to get an adequate amount of sleep each night.
Not sleeping enough can lead to stress and weight gain. 7-8 hours of sleep is what you should get each night. Do what you need to do to get an ample amount of sleep your body needs.
Be strategic about your order choices when looking at a restaurant menu.
If you are trying to eat healthily and eat fewer carbohydrates or fewer calories, then don't be tempted to stray away from your diet at restaurants. Most establishments are willing to meet special requests, such as requesting a burger with no bun or a taco salad with no shell. Just ask.
Physical exercise should be a normal part of your routine.
Walking or jogging, depending on your current physical level is a great way to relieve stress and get some easy daily physical exercise. Make it a part of your day, whether it be walking your dog in the morning or taking your kids to the park in the afternoon and walking around there. Do what feels right and works for your schedule. Soon enough, it will feel like part of your daily routine and you'll want to get up and walk every day.
