Mondays are the most important day of the week when it comes to health regimens, especially juicing. A long weekend of relaxing, having one-too-many glasses of wine and maybe a piece of pie are the exact reasons why you need to boomerang right back to the basics. If you skip Mondays, you are more likely to digress throughout the week.
- Pack a fresh pair of workout clothes and put them in the front seat of your car. No matter what time of day you workout, they will be there, ready... waiting... "staring" at you... begging you to put them on!
- Juice for breakfast. Nothing starts your day off right than a flat, un-bloated belly! Stay away from simple carbs, sugar and salt. Think "clean" and "fresh" which is why juice will make a simple solution!
- Pack healthy snacks. Make little baggies of cut up fresh veggies and fruit so that when you are craving a snack, you have something easy and yummy to grab for. My favorites are roasted beets and/or sweet potatoes... dry... with a little sea salt. A few of those tasty morsels and I'm satisfied!
- Have a healthy evening meal. Having a well-rounded, healthy and satisfying meal at the end of your Monday will ensure you don't "slip-up" and enter into the "binge" phase! Think whole grains, lots of colorful veggies and a little olive oil and sea salt. Even a lean protein like fish, eggs or chicken can make your day!
So... don't give your power to a "case of the Mondays" and skip out! Make Mondays a strong day and show Monday who's boss!
