Apr 26, 2019
Yay, Cookout....Oh No, Temptations!
Is that how you feel anytime you get invited to a cookout or summer party? I know that used to be me because I'd be excited to go have a good time but instantly feel anxiety start to build as I thought about all the tempting food I'd have to pass up because I was "dieting".
No need to get stressed out my friend! You just gotta plan ahead.
If you know there's not going to be anything healthy or nutritious to pick from then you gotta take it upon yourself!
Time to find an awesome cookout favorite that tastes awesome, fills up your belly, and fills you with lots of nutrients! Because that's the secret to staying on track and reaching those long term goals.
Honestly, this is what my clients love the most about their programs! I teach them how to find healthy things they love to eat so they NEVER feel like they're dieting!
