Surviving Fall Smell Spells, Macro Style!

mbh blog image surviving fall smells.png

Fall is in the air with all of the wonderful smells that come this time of year… Pumpkin Spice, caramel apple, hot chocolate and more, mmmmmmmm. It’s one thing to fight the urge of buying every candle and tart warmer in sight along with all the super cute decorations. But it’s a whole other story trying to fight the urge of eating all the sweets and homemade treats. I’ve got your back, follow these simple tricks and you will be able to enjoy all of the wonderful smells and even some of the tastes but none of the guilt.

Take Your Own Snacks

If you know you are headed out to a fall festival where there will be lots of treats to eat, make sure to bring your own. Get creative and bring something that is different than you normally eat so it still seems like you’re getting a special treat. Some ideas are:

  • Pretzels
  • Apples
  • Peanut butter protein balls

Don’t Go Hungry

Make sure you eat before you go. It will be easier to pass up items that you should avoid if you are full. Also, drink lots of water!

Plan Ahead

Look into what will be available where you are going. Plan on making choices prior to your event that will allow you to have a little something special while out. If there is a menu available look at it, you might be surprised to see there are items available that you can modify and have.

Share

Just because you order something it doesn’t mean you have to eat the whole thing and lick your plate. Share your special treat with someone!

It takes a lot of dedication to live a macro lifestyle, however, the benefits are great! Don’t let fall smells tempt you too much. Remember it’s okay to enjoy, just don’t indulge. Also, planning is key, to attend fall parties and festivals and not find yourself eating every treat in sight.

Top Tips for Getting More Steps In

If you are living a macro lifestyle, then yay, go you! You are already ahead of the game on living a healthy life. Are you ready to take it to the next level and make sure you’re living an active lifestyle as well?! Here are some top tips to make sure you are getting your steps in! Do you need a friendly reminder of how many steps you should be taking per day? Check out my blog, Increase Your Activity by Tracking, to see just how many steps you should be taking each day.

Get more steps in!

  • While your kiddo(s) are at lessons, don’t wait for them in the car or waiting area, go for a walk.
  • If you have a dog take them on a walk three times a day. Even if you have a yard to let them do their business in, don’t make yourself take them on a walk when it’s time to go! If you do not have a dog, get one!
  • Anytime you have a break, get moving! This can be at work or at home. Take a quick stroll around the office or the block.
  • Always park far away. This is a win, win because you will no longer have to hunt for a parking spot and you will get in more steps!
  • Take the stairs, elevators can be tempting, but pass them up and you won’t regret it.
  • Go on family walks, or walks by yourself, either way just walk!
  • Keep the commercials. Instead of fast forwarding let them play, while there on pick up a few things around the house.
  • When you are doing chores around the house like putting away laundry or unloading groceries, don’t try to carry everything at once. Instead only carry a few at a time and make more trips.
  • While your chatting on the phone walk around.
  • Walk your kids to school, if you don’t live close enough, park a little bit away and walk them the rest of the way.
  • At the end of the day, tidy up your house! Another win, win, more steps and no clutter!

Regardless of what your daily schedule is, there are many times you can change things up and add in a few extra steps. With these tips and a little adjusting on your part, you will be achieving 10,000 steps a day in no time!
