I completely understand the holidays being a stressful time for most, but don’t fear losing the progress you’ve made by overindulging. We all want to get to a point where we understand our bodies well enough to eat when we feel hungry, stop when we feel full, and enjoy the food we love without guilt. To provide some guidance, here are my go-to healthy breakfasts and a bodyweight workout that can be completed in a hotel room!
Healthy Continental Breakfast Choices
Of course there are going to be pastries, waffles, and sugary cereal, but most of the common continental breakfast items will provide a healthy and well-balanced start to your day (and fuel for the workout that day)! These are just a few examples of my go-to’s while I am running through the hotel breakfast buffet on my way out the door!
-Greek yogurt w/ granola and berries
-Hard boiled eggs w/ buttered whole wheat english muffin
-Eggs & bacon
-Whole wheat toast, avocado, eggs
-Cheerios, milk, banana
Hotel Room Workout
This workout can be modified to fit all ability levels, but first start adjusting intensity by changing the rest period as needed. My 45 seconds is a guideline, and is recommended to be taken at the end of each round with minimal rest between exercises. If you don’t know one of the exercises, they should be Googleable! If you are having trouble finding it, feel free to reach out with questions.
