Coming Back Home
After a long weekend, many of us are returning back feeling, um how shall we say…less than 100%. One of the biggest factors to successful weight loss and adapting a healthier lifestyle is always going back to your healthy habits. I call it “coming home”.
I love a nice long weekend/vacation just like the rest of us. And you will probably find me out having a less than optimal meal like this:

Is that what I eat all the time?? Absolutely not! BUT it actually is an important part of my lifestyle. Travelling, being social, and enjoying a variety of wonderful foods is part of what brings me great pleasure in life. I went through years and years feeling like I couldn’t touch these “naughty foods”. Now I am more realistic with myself. I eat clean as a whistle 95% of the time but I know that when I’m on vacation I’ll probably want to veer off the path a bit and that’s ok!
Sooooo, what are the best steps to take after a weekend of not so optimal eating/drinking? So glad you asked!
“Coming Back Home”
I usually start my morning off with hot water with lemon and ginger. This helps to tonify the liver & kidneys, clear any mucous, and get the metabolism humming again.
Next I’ll load up on as many alkaline foods as possible. This means getting to the grocery store and stocking up on plenty of ingredients for yummy salads,
We all veer off the path from time to time, the important thing is that we come back to our healthy eating and lifestyle. Go for a grocery run, get prepared for the week and you’ll be feeling back to normal in no time!!
