Fitness Challenge Season – Week 3Today is Day 24 of the fitness challenges and these cravings are taking over my brain! I am pretty certain I would give a limb to have a warm, gooey chocolate brownie topped with an abnormally large scoop of chocolate ice cream, hot fudge and a few strawberries. However, I did not succumb to the cravings. Here are some tips to keep your diet on track: 1. Meal prep EVERY meal, even weekend meals. This will prevent you from eating whatever else may be readily available. 2. Pack extra healthy snacks, just in case you get hungry, get caught at work late or stuck in traffic. If you don’t eat the extra snack, you can always have it the following day. 3. Get yourself a nice reusable lunch bag. 4. Buy an ice pack for your lunch bag. 5. Invest in a glass or aluminum water bottle. These are much better for the environment and for your body. 6. Carry your lunchbag, ice pack and water bottle EVERYWHERE. 7. Stash a protein bar in your office, car and gym bag. Don’t forget to refill your stash. 8. Find fun, healthy snacks to enjoy when you get tired of vegetables and fruit. Popcorn, minus the butter and salt, is a great option. Popcorn does not have much nutritional value, but it keeps you sane. 9. Keep your freezer packed with frozen veggies and fruits. Stay away from the canned stuff. 10. Tell people that you are on a mission to not eat junk food. Most people will respect that and not offer you the unhealthy stuff.Today is Day 24 of the fitness challenges and these cravings are taking over my brain!
