Don’t usually do many Top Tip emails like this.
But considering the time of year,
I think it could be beneficial for you.
(provided you actually implement them)
So ye it’s officially silly season again.
there’s nothing wrong with kicking back and relaxing.
Having some fun with the family & catching up with friends.
Some trainers would try have you feel ashamed for doing so
with their #nodaysoff bullsh#t.
F#cking leave them to it.
It ain’t gonna guilt trip me into not enjoying myself over the next week.
Have a few night’s out planned to celebrate my engagement
with my friends & family.
But here’s what I’m gonna do everyday
so that I can enjoy my few drinks & treats
without sabotaging all my years training.
I’ll eat a high protein breakfast everyday.
Eggs are usually the most convenient
& I can vary thew way I cook them to keep them enjoyable.
A decent breakfast will set me up proper for the day.
2. Drink a min of 2 litres of water a day.
Keep me hydrated, enough said.
3. Get a min of 7 hours kip every day.
If I don’t sleep right, I’ll crave high calorie/sugar foods the next day.
I’d be straight over to the nearest box of roses I could find.
If I fall short, I’ll try get a sneaky nap in later in the day
4. I’ll eat a min of 5 fruit & Veg every day
This will keep my nutrients & fibre levels up
so that I can help my body detox any alcohol that’s consumed.
5. I’ll keep a daily food diary on myfitnesspal
By tracking what I eat & drink it will keep me accountable
and stop me from going full retard,
which can be very tempting this time of year.
If you’re not familiar with tracking on myfitnesspal,
now is prob not the best time to start,
so you might want to leave that last one out.
Especially if you haven’t got any proper guidance as to what your
personalised targets should be.
But in fairness numbers 1 to 4 should pretty simple to follow
and they will massively help you offset any damage you do.
If you’ve young kids who like wake you up in the middle of the night,
try plan a nap during the day to offset the tiredness.
Plus there’s always coffee to sort you out ; )
Bottom line is lads,
this email is completely f#cking useless
unless you actually implement what you’ve read.
So it’s up to you buddy.
