Our Tips For Getting Back On Track

Our Tips For Getting Back On Track | adoubledose.comHappy Monday! Hope you all had a great weekend, and are having a great start to the new year! We are trying to get organized and get back into the swing of things (more in this blog post, in case you missed it). Today, we are excited to be back with one of our fitness posts to kick of 2018! We are going to be sharing some of our top tips for getting back on track after the holidays, or just hitting that “reset” button to start the year. Before we get into that, we wanted to share a little bit about this super cute workout outfit. These leggings are a great basic black pair and you can wear them for working out, or running errands! Our Tips For Getting Back On Track | adoubledose.comWe paired it with this coral pullover (has a hood AND thumbholes, yes please!), so it is great for running or outdoor workouts!  We layered this black vest over it, which is super warm and versatile! We also have it in the jacket version, which is also a great buy!Our Tips For Getting Back On Track | Our Tips For Getting Back On Track | Our Tips For Getting Back On Track | adoubledose.comOur Tips For Getting Back On Track | You all have probably seen us wear these slip ons countless times. SO comfy and great for running around or casual outfits!Our Tips For Getting Back On Track | And, now for our tips:

First of all, do NOT be discouraged. The hardest part is starting and sticking with it, but remember, the more you stick with it and do it, the easier it becomes, and it is worth it.

  • Replace sodas with water or unsweetened iced tea (you can use these stevia drops for sweetener ) or we love these zevia drinks. We also love these sparkling waters.
  • Stick to healthy carbs (sweet potatoes, squashes, rice, whole grains), vegetables (salads, sautéed, or baked), lean proteins (chicken, steak, fish, eggs, tofu, yogurt), fruits, and nuts/seeds.
  • We think it can be helpful to track your food, at least for a little bit, so you understand and can visualize portion sizes. We recommend buying a food scale or using an app like myfitnesspal. It sounds silly, but portions make all of the difference.
  • Prepare your meals on Sundays, or have a game plan of what you’re going to eat for breakfast, lunch, snacks, and dinner, that way you won’t get hangry, and go overboard! (we have all been there!)
  • Try to get in some sort of physical activity 3-5 times a week. It can be walking, biking, running, lifting weights, yoga, etc. Whatever you enjoy and gets you moving!
  • For sweet treats, we love these quest bars (chocolate chip cookie dough is our fave) and their new Quest cookies. So good heated up in the microwave for like 10-20 seconds!
  • Hold yourself accountable by doing this with a friend or spouse! If you’re in it together, you’re more likely to stick with it!
  • Reward yourself for sticking with your goals by treating yourself to a mani/pedi, blowout, vacation, etc.

This whole look is from one of our favorite retailers, Nordstrom. They have, in our opinion, the best workout gear!

They also offer free shipping and returns, which is always a plus!Our Tips For Getting Back On Track | SHOP THE OUTFIT{ Black Vest | Coral Hoodie Pullover | Black Leggings | Black Slip Ons | Sunglasses | BRACELETS: David Yurman Cable Bracelets herehere, and here and Cartier Love Bracelet | RINGS:  David Yurman Ring here and here | WATCH: Michele Deco Watch }
