Give yourself a pat on your back as you have now successfully completed 100 days of being fit and active. And yes by now your muscles might have toned and you sure have lost a few kilos. The biggest challenge now is to manage your weight and keep it consistent. Try not to get too carried away with your cheat meals as too many calories can make it difficult to get back on track and induce lethargy and tiredness.
Morning Start your mornings on a positive note. Wake up on your usual time and try a breathing exercise which can help you control your cravings on a cheat day. This will also help you to have your favourite meals and also that chocolate pastry in moderation.
Eating right and healthy makes your day. Here are a few healthy recipes that you can try on a Sunday.
Breakfast: Want to have breakfast like a king and make a healthy kickstart? Give the usual Sunday morning aloo parathas a miss and try these new semolina parathas, rich in fibre they add a distinct crunchiness to your parathas that ups the taste.
Lunch: It might really be boring to have the standard dal-chawal or chicken steam rice. To make your lunch more interesting, try having chole bature. No we aren t telling you to add oil to your food and make it calorie dense. In fact, you can have this chole made of no oil at all and is a good recommendation for people who want to lose weight.
Snacks: Your 4 pm hunger pangs can make you give up your healthy eating habits and portion control. So keep your snack ready before hand, try this grilled chicken honey orange salad which will not only satiate you but fill you up with enough protein too.
Dinner: This is the last meal of your day and don t forget to enjoy this meal by trying something new and different. This spicy sesame noodles will give your taste buds a kick and keep you on the healthy side despite today being your cheat day.
Relaxation with a little workout won t hurt your aching muscles. Here is what you can do to stay fit on a Sunday
At home: No equipment at home doesn t mean you cannot workout at home. Try doing this 8-minute cardio workout at home without the treadmill and feel the burst of energy.
At gym: If you are planning to hit the gym today try doing a couple of set of bench presses and push-ups, apart from keeping your upper body in shape it also helps you to perform better in bed at night.
