Post-Spring Break Weight-Loss Plan
While everyone was on Spring Break, we were not worried about the amount of sugar in the strawberry daiquiri and the amount of calories in the four-cheese extra pepperoni pizza. The only thing people were worried about during that week is having fun and drinking and eating as much as the elastic in their swimsuit can stretch. Once Spring Break is over that is when reality hits and the scale tips. Although you can’t go back into time and only drink half the daiquiri and eat one piece of that pizza, you can lose those pounds you put on with the Post-Spring Break Plan.

This is when you will want to put this song on repeat and “1 and 2 and 3 and 4 and get them sit ups right and tuck your tummy tight and do your crunches like this.” Don’t worry about what he raps about next. For the Post-Spring Break Plan you just want to focus on getting a great workout in twice a day.
Morning Workout: 30 minutes of high-intensity cardio, 100 crunches, and 25 lunges
Nighttime Workout: 30 minutes of medium-intensity cardio, 75 crunches, and 15 lunges
Breakfast: Complex carbohydrates should be the main intake. Complex carbohydrates give you energy, which gives you the ability to burn more calories during your workout. Examples of complex carbs are oats, grains, beans, or nuts.
Lunch: High-protein meal, which maintains the energy from breakfast and keeps you full longer so you won’t be tempted by unhealthy snacks. Example of high protein meals are grilled chicken salad, salmon with veggies and a side of Greek yogurt, or a turkey burger with no bun.
Dinner: At nighttime you won’t be exerting the energy to burn calories, so therefore you want to eat as light as possible. Example of eating light would be a fruit salad, sautéed spinach, or a piece of tilapia.
Top 3 Ingredients
On nutrition labels ingredients are listed in order by the amount, so the ingredients with the highest amounts are listed first. For the Post-Spring Break Plan, you do not want to eat or drink anything that has sugar or high-fructose corn syrup within the first three ingredients. The goal of doing this is to reduce your sugar intake so that your body will lose weight and not store it.
Although I’m not DJ Khaled, believe me when I say that they keys to success is lemon water. Warm lemon water speeds up your metabolism, cleanses the liver (which is necessary after all those shots of tequila), and it reduces bloating. All of those things are necessary in order to lose weight. For the Post-Spring Break Plan, it is recommended that you drink at least 8 cups of lemon water a day.
