Many people struggle to maintain a healthy lifestyle over the holiday season, with some gaining as much as 10 pounds over the last two months of the year. Halloween candy (for a couple of weeks), a huge Thanksgiving dinner (with leftovers), then several holiday parties and cookie exchanges lasting until the New Year. How can you enjoy the holidays without falling victim to the year-end weight gain? With a plan!
I’m providing these graphics as a fun way to share information to help you stay on track with your exercise and eating habits over the holidays.
Consistency is key to getting and staying fit. So, don’t worry too much about an occasional indulgence like a big, family dinner this time of year.
But how do you keep it in check with all the socializing, travel, and schedule disruptions — not to mention your favorite seasonal dishes?
I recommend mindfulness, moderation, and moving your body every day. And remember to limit the number and duration of your indulgences this year. One day here and there might be OK, but don’t let a holiday meal stretch into a week of overeating and napping all afternoon!
Enjoy the holidays and get ready for a FREE 30 Day Eating Challenge starting in January for VIP members.
