I'm at the end of my 3 week fitness challenge and wanted to share with you how I stay on track when I eat out!
Meg’s Tips for Eating Out During a Fitness/ Clean Eating Challenge
Tip 1: Water is your best beverage friend! Skip the alcohol and empty calories and stick with sparkling or flat water and ask for fresh fruit on the side so you can spice it up with some flavor! Tip 2: Order your food sautéed, grilled, baked or broiled to avoid any frying, smothering, breading or blackened food! Tip 3: Think LEAN and GREEN when ordering your entrée. Stick to lean protein and vegetables! Tip 4: Just tell the waiter up front NOT to bring any bread baskets. Tip 5: Ask for butter and dressing and sauces ON THE SIDE. Tip 6: Plan ahead and look up the menu online! Check it out in the comfort of your own home with no pressure to decide quickly and decide what the healthy options are.
Meg’s Tips for How to Stay on Track on Saturday and Sunday!
Tip 1: Get your workout in FIRST THING IN THE MORNING! Just do it, get it over with and enjoy the rest of the day! Tip 2: Do fun fitness related activities on the weekend! On Saturday night, instead of going bar hopping, go dancing and have fun and burn some major calories! During the day, take your workout outside and go for a hike and then out to eat at a healthy juice bar or café. Tip 3: On Sunday, HAVE FUN but make sure to also do your food prep and grocery shopping for the following week so you can stay on track and keep getting results!
