We hear ya, a post-Thanksgiving hangover is as predictable as dealing with overzealous Black Friday crowds; and the thought of being back at work can also put a damper into your mood so we’re taking a few tips out of our angel Alessandra Ambrosio’s books to help get you back on track like a boss. For those of you die-hard Victoria’s Secret fans, you know that following Thanksgiving comes the show of the year — the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show! — That means the VS angels having to celebrate the holidays while still staying in shape. So instead of slipping into a coma all week, keep pushing forward and follow these steps beat bloat and feel back on track!
- Hot Water and Lemon: Detox with the simplest, tried and true formula! This combo flushes out toxins and waking up your digestive tract — both important when you’re dealing with a post-festive feast hangover.
- Get Moving: Overcome any bloating after a meal by going on a brisk walk to help speed up the digestion process. Then, do a little stretching. Take this time to also calm your mind, a little inner peace goes along way when you have busy week ahead!
- Herbal Tea: Green tea is also a favorite in Ale’s books. It hydrates and detoxes the body, too!
- Cook at Home: While it’s easy to opt for a quick meal when you’ve been working late, you’re more prone to consuming additional calories when eating out. Take the time to grocery shop at the beginning of the week so you can plan for the week ahead. Stick to fast low-cal meals, like strawberry coconut parfaits for breakfast and cayenne chicken with avocado salsa for dinner.
