If your holiday was anything like mine, you’ve probably enjoyed one too many cocktails, made sure you slathered your bread generously with butter and slothed around like a blubberish seal slothing on the sea shore! Holidays are for living and let’s just say, this year, I wasn’t shy to live a little.
Ironically, when I jumped on the scale yesterday, to my surprise I’ve in fact not picked up any extra kilo’s this season but what I can say is that I’m definitely feeling sluggish and like I’ve fueled my body very differently to usual. In a nutshell, I’m feeling bloated and inflamed from all the good stuff (a.k.a bad stuff) – sugar, gluten and alcohol!
If you’re like me and luckily haven’t become too rotund, this post is still worth taking note of. If you have managed to gain a few and you’re also feeling a little poo, this post is definitely for you! (yes, a rhyme. It seemed right at the time.) 😉
Here are 6 food swaps you need to do to kick back into “Awesome Mode”:
If you can swap all the inflammatory foods (NAY column) for all the less-inflammatory foods (YAY column) during your day, week and month, I’ll pretty much guarantee you’ll be feeling a whole lot better and looking a whole lot healthier in that time!
Stick with these simple swaps as much as you can. Remember, it will be a process and you might have a few withdrawal symptoms. This is normal and part of the process! Try to make time to move. Whether it be a walk, run, swim, Yoga class, Pilates class or a session with your PT… always make time to move your beautiful body!
Goodbye sugar breakouts, hangovers, white bread bloat and unwanted holiday weight! It’s time to refocus and make 2015 a super happy and healthy year!
