We should always look to plan ahead with our training and our nutrition. Remember that having a training day is not an excuse to simply gorge on foods because we have exercised. On the other hand, just because we haven’t been as active this doesn’t mean that we can simply treat the rest of the day as bad.
Some planning and consideration needs to go into our lifestyle in order for us to keep healthy long term. Something such as a 10 minute walk twice over the course of a day can be a good boost and help us achieve our goals in the long run.
The same goes with our food preparation. Now this doesn’t mean you’ll want to be cooking all day every day, but if you know you are going to have a busy day at work – understand the options that are available to you and use them to best of your abilities.
This might mean preparing food to take in with you, or this might mean making some good decisions when it comes to eating pre-prepared food bought from a store.
Not only that, but by keeping up the good exercise and nutrition practices, they are more likely to develop into habits which means long term success.
Also, when we are able to get back to training we’ll have plenty of energy which means a more effective workout and our bodies will be primed to recover adequately from the training. So, keep up the good work even on the bad days and you’ll soon feel much better for it in the long run!
