We understand that it is sometimes difficult to relax and take a break when driven to be on a meal plan and goal oriented. Be present and enjoy your surroundings. Don't stress about the gym or missing a meal. Do your best to make good decisions and enjoy! Indulging and beating yourself over it defeats the purpose. It is all about balance. You're not going to be perfect 100% of the time so don't expect yourself to be. Don't be so caught up in your fitness that you become miserable and miss everything going on around you. The gym will always be there when you get back!
We like to lift weights and eat clean, but THAT DOESN'T MEAN WE DON'T LIKE TO PARTY! Since the holiday weekend is upon us, we are going to share some of our go-to tips for surviving this summers BBQ or any party for that matter.
Plan ahead of the party by eating clean all week. Earn that cheat meal!
