Stampede week is over, now what?
Stampede is a great time to get out and have a blast. The grounds are full of games, rides and best of all, tasty treats! With all the festivities and free pancake breakfasts, it can be hard to stick to a healthy diet, but that’s ok, it happens to the best of us 🙂
Now that Stampede is in the books for another year, it’s time to get back on track and start up on some healthy habits! Getting back on track doesn’t have to be overwhelming, just try to include small changes to your daily routine.
10 Ways to get back on track today
Try these 10 easy tips for finding a healthy balance in your daily routine:
-Try a short workout. It doesn’t have to be a long intense workout, even starting off with a 5-10 min workout is a good way to get back in the groove!
-Discover a new recipe. Try a new healthy recipe and enjoy a home cooked meal at home. Making your own food is often healthier and tastier than eating out.
-Drink plenty of water. Try to get the recommended 8 cups a day to see a difference!
-Track what you eat. It’s easy not to think about what you’re eating, but keep track of it and at the end of the day you’ll be able to see where you can make some improvements!
-Find a workout friend. Everything is more fun with a friend, even exercise! Working out with a friend keeps you motivated and pushes you to go further.
-Go for a walk. Every little step helps, especially when you work in an office where you sit for long stretches. It’s summer, so a walk in the park is always a nice way to spend your lunch.
-Stock your fridge with healthy food. If you fill your fridge and cupboards with healthy and delicious foods, you won’t be tempted to eat out.
-Do some yard work. Working in your garden or mowing the lawn is an easy way to burn calories and get some sunshine!
-Ride your bike. A bike ride can be as relaxing or invigorating as you want it to be. It’s a great low impact exercise and Calgary has tons of beautiful paths to ride and explore.
-Eat breakfast at home. Starting the day off right with a tasty and healthy breakfast can set the tone for your day. Try preparing something the night before to save you some time in your morning routine.
Take small steps at first, and build on them every day. Before you know it, you’ll be back on the track to a healthier you!
