With the upcoming holiday weekend you are likely to be attending at least one BBQ.
When we gather with friends food and drinks with high calories are often part of the mix. While you don’t want to be “that person” saying “no” to all the food and drink you can try to be conscious of what you eat.
Try out some of these food swaps at your upcoming BBQ’s this weekend:
My kids are always asking for a snack! As a result, I always have a snack. Snacking is okay but, are we making the healthier snack choice? And, how often are we snacking?
As a parent we walk around the house we pass the counter and if there is a dish of cookies or chips we would put our hand in grab one or two and keep moving, without even thinking about it. Then, that one cookie turns into two, three or even four cookies. Imagine how many calories we are eating and not realizing it.
Hi I’m Erika Burdick, Long Island native, mom and ACE certified personal trainer. I love learning new exercises to challenge myself and helping friends and family stay motivated to live a healthy and active lifestyle.
After having my daughter, Harper in 2015 my time was extremely limited. I needed to get creative just to find 30 minutes to workout. I thought I must not be the only mom struggling to find some balance. This sparked the idea for BFit Long Island. I became an ACE certified Personal Trainer and developed a 30 minute full body workout program to be done right in the comfort of your home.
I aim to bring affordability and convenience to local families with my in home training.
