5. Drink Lots of Water
How much water do you drink each day? Based on your activity level you should be drinking between 8-12 glasses of water daily. If you are tired of drinking the same old water, add a splash of lemon or lime. Lemon is a natural diuretic, so it will also help alleviate bloating. People often confuse hunger for thirst so when you feel a hunger pang, have a glass of water first to see if this subsides.
6. Weigh in Every Morning
As a personal trainer for over a decade, I often advise clients against weighing in every day because this can become an obsession. But with just 7 days to your goal, a daily weigh-in will keep you motivated, aware and help you to stay on track to your goal. When you wake up, weigh in before you have your breakfast; this is your actual weight. Write this number down in a journal each day. If you stick to this plan, you can lose 3-5 pounds this week.
7. Eat Mini Healthy Meals Throughout The Day
Rather than eating three large meals that your body will have trouble digesting, graze on 5-6 mini meals that are light, healthy and will help you attain your goal. Eliminate meals after 8 pm and watch the weight and inches drop off this week. Remember with hard work, focus and an extra push in all your workouts, you can achieve your goal!
