Slipped from routine over Easter and ate a few (hundred) too many mini eggs? Don’t beat yourself up- life is all about balance! If you’re worried that a whole pack of hot cross buns has undone all your hard work, then this is the time to eat clean, train hard and work your butt off.
Here are our 5 best tips for getting back on track after EasterDon’t skip meals
Your first thought may be to skip lunch or head to bed early to fight the dinner hunger, but this can do more damage than good! Stick to frequent healthy meals- Skipping them always lead to overindulging, waking up hungry and eating a bigger breaky than normal. Lots of veggies and protein is key!
Don’t keep chocolate lying around
This one’s simple- out of sight, out of mind. We’re not saying to throw the chocolate away (what kind of monster would do that?!) But shifting it from the bedside table to the pantry can take away some of the temptation and help you get back on track faster. When you do decide to indulge, grab out a controlled portion rather than a whole large egg or bag of choccies.
Train at a different time
If you consistently train at the same time every day, your body can become complacent and expects you to do whatever you normally do. Try mixing up your training schedule to give your body a little shock, and help burn those eggs off faster. Yes, that may mean early morning or late night sessions- but we’re sure the chocolate was worth it.

Try something new
Remember- exercise can be fun, it doesn't always have to mean heading to the gym or running on the treadmill. Enjoying an endorphin rush at the trampoline park or during a yoga class could be just what you need to get the heart pumping and elevate your motivation levels.
