HAPPY 4TH OF JULY🇺🇸
Today and this weekend I know so many of us will be celebrating the holiday! To help stay on track during today’s festivities here are my best tips:
🎉Workout FIRST THING!
🎉Stay hydrated. If you do drink alcohol, alternate between water and your drink of choice. Avoid drinks with mixers. Remember, alcohol can actually lower blood sugar in some cases. Stay on top of it. Watch the mixers bc they usually have LOTS of sugar.
🎉If you’re going to a cookout, take something that YOU CAN EAT! This is a good idea if you’re adopting a new lifestyle or not. How many times have you gone to an event and had to guess at what you’re eating and how to dose for it? Better to know so you can carb count accurately!
🎉Want sweets? Go with the berries and melons OR us this opportunity to bake something with almond or coconut flour for a lower carb count.
🎉Don’t show up to an event super hungry.
🎉If you slip up, DON’T GIVE UP! Your next decision can put you back on track.
❌Remember that heat can impact blood sugar AND make sure to keep your insulin COOL so it doesn’t spoil.
What are your plans to celebrate the 4th?!?
