Beach Blanket Balancing Act

May 30th, 2010 No Comments Tags: , , , , , ,

We must be on the heels of summer. I sent a number of e-mail blasts at work last week and with all of  the “out of office” automated messages, it made me wonder if anyone was actually at work. That holiday season is upon us, isn’t it?!!

I think it’s a myth that it’s easier to stick to your eating and exercise regimen when the better weather is upon us. I find the the opposite is true as there are many instances that challenge our routines that we need to keep our wits about us to either stay or get back on track. If you start to slide and don’t catch yourself you might be an unhappy camper by August.

Make Goals & Monitor

So what’s it going to be? Are you planning on keeping a holding pattern on your weight and regimen to maintain or are you wanting to lose a few lb’s? Whatever your decision you need to be like a stealth planner either way. The key to being successful with any goal you set is the monitoring. Successful losers monitor their weight while they’re losing or maintaining, like a reality check. Knowledge is power, right? If that needle on the scale is going up like the temperature outside you need to regroup.

Enjoy and Endure

This time of year is so joyous with warmer weather, longer daylight, more get togethers. If you do anything, make sure you enjoy it to the max and stay in the moment!! It’s one big balancing act taking the time to enjoy what this season has to offer but also endure details of your goals so you’re satisfied with yourself once the proverbial party is over.

I’m going to be writing on this “Beach Blanket” theme all week, so please do weigh in on your plans, trials and tribulations so we can all learn from each other.
