How to Bounce Back After a Holiday Weekend

This past weekend we celebrated our Independence with friends, family and fireworks. A large part of enjoying holidays in our country is indulging in some favorite treats. The trick however is to not feel bad about it, and reset the next week!

The best way to bounce back after a holiday is to do a HIIT workout (high intensity interval training). The combination of cardio and toning in one workout blasts calories and keeps that metabolism going long after your workout ends. Look here for some HIIT workout ideas. 

Here are some detoxifying nutrition ideas!

  • Sliced apples with cinnamon
  • Kale salad with apple cider vinegar dressing
  • Brussels Sprouts
  • Roasted Asparagus
  • Protein Smoothies with berries
  • Wheatgrass
  • Grapefruit slices

Use herbs and spices such as dill, milk thistle, turmeric, cayenne pepper, cinnamon, ginger and cumin and try to stay away from salt.

Another tip! Sip on fresh lemon water this week and swap out your coffee for green tea – it is extra refreshing and detoxifying.
