The holidays are coming up and everything you may not eat all year is going to be readily available to you…Find a nutrition balance. That doesn’t mean 1 slice of pie per slice of turkey if you get me.
The key is not to overdo it. Also remember, if you over do it one day, its not going to undo all of your progress. When you are eating really focus on your food, eat slowly, leave some on the plate, and drink lots of water.
Find a workout balance as well. There are people who head tot he gym for a 2 hour workout sessions he day after or before Thanksgiving. You do not have to be that person. I REPEAT, YOU DO NOT HAVE TO BE THAT PERSON. Keep your exercise regular throughout the holidays and eating a few more calories will not hurt you.
Have a plan & Stick to it! Create a plan and stick to it, because we know thats really the hardest part. Make a plan before all of the family chaos starts. Make the plan attainable. If it is not attainable, it isn’t sustainable. If yo have to get up a little early to workout, do it. If you don’t make it to the gym, workout at home. If you are traveling try and make sure your hotel has a gym. If not, workout in your room or outside. Body weight exercises are your best friend.
HAVE SOME ACCOUNTABILITY. HAVE SOME ACCOUNTABILITY. HAVE SOME ACCOUNTABILITY.
