Get back on track with a few simple steps:

  1. Drink plenty of water
  2. Plan your next healthy meal (don’t starve yourself, just make good choices)
  3. Plan your next workout or just take a walk

Remember that overdoing it on food is the human condition.  We all do it…as we can see from our overall result this week. As a popular inspirational quote says, “You are not defined by your mistakes, but your reaction.” So, own the mistake and get right back to your weight loss plan.

For those that did not fall off the wagon, extra props to you!

Healthy Life Newsletter

Attached is the May edition of the Healthy Life Newsletter.  This edition includes tips for getting in shape with very little time commitment!  Take a look at the cover article, “Can You Take a HIT?”  It explains how this is done:

The 6-second bursts are one of the shortest sprint durations ever used in high-intensity training (HIT). HIT involves short bursts of intense exercise and achieves similar results to long-distance endurance training.  However, the method is much less time consuming and comes with a lower risk of injury, making it ideal for athletes wishing to remain injury free.
