The holidays are coming and if your family is anything like mine that means everything revolves around food!
I love this time of year, we work hard so this time of year is the reward. Gatherings with friends and family celebrations all around, its easy to get caught up in the moment and loose track of what you have worked hard to maintain all year long.
How do you stay balanced.....
Staying focused on your goals will keep you on track. Don't skip your workouts, even when things get crazy busy this is your time it will keep your stress level down so you can focus on taking care of business. Remember to eat healthy foods, preparation is key you need energy to get you through the day.
You just started this new healthy lifestyle, how do you maintain it around the holidays.
- Only you can control what you put in your body
- You work out everyday to feel good about yourself
- Plan ahead, bring your low fat dishes & share
- Stay away from the buffet table
- Keep focused on your goals
For me self control is what keeps me focused, it helps if you have a supportive family. My family understands and expects me to bring a veggie tray, turkey meatballs, and sugar free pudding pie! They are also trained they know if the party is at my house they need to bring their own butter! ( we laugh about it)
Its easy to be tempted and once in a while treat yourself, just know that others will try to convince you its okay to eat its the holidays. But be careful those calories add up and before you know it you have gained 10lbs and you will be working it off the rest of the winter.
Remember only you can accomplish your goals, and only you know whats best for you!
