How to Survive BBQ Season while Sticking To Your Regiment

By Amanda Robar, Premium PT & BootCamps

 

For most of us, summer becomes a difficult time to stay on track with our fitness goals. There are a lot of BBQs, pool parties, camping trips or family outings.

 

Many people even give up altogether over the summer and tell themselves, “I will start back up in September”. We see this all the time at our facility; clients wanting to downgrade their Personal Training Membership or pause their account over the summer.

 

Here are some helpful tips on how to stay on track over the summer so that you are not starting from square one again in September. Taking time off every summer only leads to a vicious cycle of losing and gaining weight. This can get very discouraging and can cause us to lose motivation altogether.

Remember that consistency is the key to staying on track!

 

Healthy Food Options: Make sure there are healthier options at gatherings, and if there aren’t, bring some food with you, such as chicken to throw on the BBQ instead of having hamburgers and hot dogs. You could also bring a healthy salad, or a veggie platter. Stick to your protein and veggies during the BBQ, and try to limit the amount of carbs.

 

Social Cocktails: Many of us like to have drinks at social events. A few good options for alcoholic beverages, with fewer calories, sugar and carbs, are: vodka with soda water and lime, or a small amount of wine and with a carbonated, flavoured water. These options keep the calories and sugar-intake low and wont make you feel deprived. Try to avoid the sugary coolers, beer, and sugary juice mixes.

 

Keep Exercising: We all need exercise in our lives for its many health benefits. Summer should be the best time to stay on track with exercise. We have longer days with more sunlight, and beautiful weather which means you can exercise outdoors. There are so many options to choose from: biking, hiking, walking, jogging, swimming, skipping, and even doing body weight exercises outdoors such as lunges, squats, push ups, sit ups, planks, and more.

 

Join a group BootCamp: Joining a local BootCamp is one of the most affordable and effective ways to reach your fitness goals in a group atmosphere. You will have the direction and workout from a Certified Personal Trainer, a diet plan and the coaching you may need along the way, and you can meet other like-minded individuals.

 

Most importantly, Don’t Stop: Keep moving forward toward your goals and don’t let the summer season hold you back from becoming the best version of you. Once summer is over, you will be happy that you are not starting from square one!
