Best ‘Healthy’ Drinks on a night out
So you have been good all week, but a load of your friends are dragging you out with them on the night out, panic! What drinks are the best? How do I not let this derail my whole fitness plan?!
The truth is, if you are trying to lose weight, or kick start your fitness, then binge drinking is never a good idea. It’s not so much the calories, (although they are bad as well), it’s the effects a drink has on your mind. You are more likely to eat bad food after a drink, as your inhibitions start to loosen, so does your healthy eating plan.
But look, life is complicated, so if you are on a night out and want to have a drink, here is the best options for you:
1) LIE - Order a soda and lime at the bar, but in a fancy cocktail glass, ask the barman to help you out, and be discreet, your friends will never know!
2) The every other principle - For every Alcoholic drink you have, have a water in between. You cut your calories in half.
3) Vodka/Gin and slimline tonic with lime. You can save a massive amount of calories on this trick alone.
Just be honest with your mates, and tell them you don’t want to go crazy on the drink, they will understand. If they don’t, show them your toned stomach and shame them instead!
Even if you do have a blow out, don’t worry too much, just don’t let it carry on past that night. Forget it, move on!
Drink smart and always keep your goals in mind.
It's the question we get asked most weeks, do we train in the rain, the wind, but what about the snow! Yes to all three and to any other types of weather!
The answers range from boredom, to motivation, lack of knowledge and a few others, but the MAIN problem that comes up EVERY time is this .....
Lack of Action Taking, Consistency & Adaptation.
Massive, consistent action with pure persistence & a sense of flexibility in pursuing your goals will ultimately give you what you want, but you must abandon any sense that there is no solution.
You see, too many people give up after trying a just a few things, it's the fear of failure which ultimately leads to giving up entirely. Their is no exact science of how to lose weight, it's about working with your lifestyle, social life, family, friends, unique challenges and barriers.
So what, you didn't lose weight this week, what can you do about it next week? It doesn't matter what happens, it's how you react which will make the difference between success and failure.
To succeed in weight loss, you have to keep tweaking, and fine tuning your approach, consistently to reap the rewards.
This is why on my 8 Week Programme, I speak to my clients DAILY, making sure that nothing can ever trip them up for longer than 1 day, meaning the success momentum builds into something unstoppable.
P.S If this resonates with you, I would like to invite you to apply. Applications close in a few days. Apply here.
I have been talking to so many people this last few days.
I am currently having daily strategy calls with people trying to get onto my 'Lose a Stone in 8 Weeks' Programme, it's actually pretty hard to get accepted as I am quite fussy over who I accept!
(you can apply here BTW)
Anyway, it's always interesting when I ask the question:
"Why didn't your last programme work for you?"
