I don’t know about you, but I am feeling a little partied out at the moment, and we still have a week left to go until Christmas! I thought it would be a good time to post a few tips to keep us all going strong until New Years, so I asked fitness and health guru, Chloe Hodgson to give us AG’s a few pointers… Chloe says:
Stick to eating a healthy and nutritious breakfast where possible. Here are a few of my favorites, Eat Your Breakfast: http://chloespilates.blogspot.co.uk/2013/11/eat-your-breakfast.html
Seek out moments to stay active. Go for a 20 minute jog (wrap up warm!), then follow my 10 minute bums & tums blast at home http://chloespilates.blogspot.co.uk/2013/11/10-minute-pilates-bum-tum-blast-you-can.html
Avoid drinking alcohol on an empty stomach. Eat something nutritious before you head out. This will slow down the absorption of alcohol into your bloodstream.
Choose the healthy canapÃ© options. Claudia Winfield is here to help with a few of her favorite healthy canapÃ© recipes http://chloespilates.blogspot.co.uk/2013/11/guest-blog-healthy-canapes-by-claudia.html
Up your vitamins and antioxidants. Here are a few of my favourites – Vitamin C, B-complex, acai berries, blueberries, garlic, ginger, green tea, Chlorella (helps reduce a hangover!) and take a good multivitamin. You could even look at making your own supplements using empty gelatin capsules and pre-ground herb powders of your choice – click for more info on how you can make them and take charge of your health regime for yourself.
Stay hydrated which will help a hangover. Lots of water and Coconut water is great for rehydration as it is naturally rich in electrolytes.
