I am by no means an expert on the subject, but here’s what I’ve got so far:
- Be accountable. I recently reached the top side of my weight range over the summer. I jumped back onto MyFitnessPal to start calculating exactly how many calories I was consuming a day. Yes, you will think twice about office sweets or a second glass
- Mix it up. In an ideal world, I would go to Kickboxing on Mondays, Zumba on Tuesdays and salsa dance the rest of the week. Given none of that is particularly available at a time when I need it to be, I’ve tried something different for me and have been enjoying the Couch to 5K training.
- Leave work at work. Yes, this is a bit of mental health. As my job is already back to completely stressing me out again, I’m glad I can (mostly) leave work at work. Some things might keep me up at night, but for the most part – I walk out the door and make myself leave it all behind. My employer already gets close to 45 hours a week from me, I think that’s more than enough.
