Tips and Tricks for a healthy weekend

Lets be honest, weekends are most peoples downfall.

5 days of hard workout can be undone by Sunday afternoon just like that.  Braai broodtjies, desserts, drinks, snacks in front of the tv, eating out…..

Gosh, it’s hard.

Sadly this is the reason you might not be hitting your weight loss goals in the gym.  You will be surprised, if you enter your weekend with the same mind set as you do during the week, you might just get rid of that stubborn weight!

Try this out for the long weekend ahead…

A quick morning workout can set the tone for the rest of the day.  You will be more aware of what you are putting in your mouth and you will feel energized.

Limit your drinks. Calories in beverages can add up very quickly. Go easy on the beer, frizzy drinks and wine. Try out healthier drinks instead of you aren’t keen on water.


JUST water have a great variety of sugar free water.  Add one of these flavours with ice into a big glass and you will be surprised at how enjoyable this is.  The health Bar sells all the flavours at only R10 each.

Naturally flavoured water is also very refreshing.  Cut a few slices of lemon, cucumber or strawberries and add to your water.  The subtle flavours make that plain glass of water come to life.

Most importantly,

Have a plan and stick to it.

Make sure you have set meals and snacks planned.  This will prevent mindless eating. Prepare snacks ahead of time as you would during the week.


If the craving REALLY hits and you are about to eat a slab of chocolate, rather opt for a healthier treat options such as the smart bite range of goodies from clicks. These are extremely low in carbs and sugar.  Woolies also have great options of slimmers treats and snacks which hit the spot.

Ps… empty out your cupboards of ALL the junk and temptations. Chances are if you don’t have it in your house you won’t HAVE to eat it.

Its less than a week before our next weigh in and photos….. This long weekend could make the difference in whether you see results or not.
