“I take nothing for granted. I now only have good days and great days”-Lance Armstrong
Monday’s can bring on a unique problem I call the Monday bloat. (Usually followed by the Monday Cardio Cofessional.)
Water retention caused by a weekend of a little (or a lot!) of overindulgence, salty food, and alcohol.
Put all three together and you’ve got an extra 3-8lbs of water retention and a bad attitude on Monday.
I want to help you take the edge off this common but rarely talked about problem.
3 Tips to get Rid of the Monday “Bloat”.
1) Fruits, vegetables and water most of the day.
Definitely a good day for a salad at lunch.
The simple solution: Up your intake of soluble fiber, found in apples, citrus fruits, seeds,and beans.
This lets your aggravated digestive system reset. And allows your body to start dumping that extra stored water through out the day.
You’re not going to feel like it at first but exercise will make you feel better in the long run not worse.
Avoid the Monday Cardio Confessional. Use some cardio to get warmed up if you want, but be sure to lift some weights today!
In the old days we’d actually use that extra Monday water weight to help us lift heavier. Believe it or not you’ll probably be stronger today because of the water retention.
Get to the gym and give yourself 10 min, break a sweat and you’ll geel better. You only regret the workouts you don’t do. Get on with it.
Spark, coffee, unsweetend tea(no soft drinks). Caffeine will actually help you drop a few pounds of water weight. It will help squeeze some of the excess water from your system.
It works as stimulant to your digestive tract, easing bloating.
And it’s a performance enhancer-you’ll push harder through your workout.
Put one or all three into play and you’ll feel better if not by noon today at least by Tuesday.
