If you’re going back to school this fall, then you may be worried about what it’s like to juggle a schedule filled with schoolwork, work, and family. To help you stay up on your exercise and diet routine, we have a few suggestions for you. Let’s take a closer look.
Set a Workout Plan
The first thing that you should do is set a designated workout schedule. Yes, you may have to wake up a lot earlier than you’re used to to get your gym time in, but having that time carved out for yourself is a must if you want to stick to your routine.
Pack Healthy Snacks
If you’re going to be gone at school and work all day, you’re bound to get hungry. Rather than letting those vending machines and fast food tempt you, meal plan on Sunday and make a bunch of things you can take with you on the go. Some easy, protein-packed snacks include:
- String cheese
Sting cheese is affordable, easy to eat on the go, and high in lean protein, which makes it a must-have when you’re doing your grocery shopping. With just 80 calories per slice, string cheese is also a lean choice.
- Protein Balls
Protein balls are easy to make and can keep you full for a long time. Try making protein balls contain g raw oatmeal, unsweetened peanut butter, fresh coconut flakes, locally sourced honey, cacao chips, and a little bit of vanilla; they not only taste delicious, but they will keep you full for longer than other snacks.
- Fresh Veggies and Fruits
Too many fruits and veggies are high in carbs which may not be what you want to eat, but if you have some here and there, they make for tasty snacks. When choosing vegetables, choose ones that are high in vitamins like sweet potatoes, broccoli, kale, and carrots. When you’re choosing fruit, try to steer clear of mangoes and papaya because they are higher in calories.
