Do you have a plan?
Have you really thought about having a plan for staying on your healthy eating/exercising course over the holidays? Oh there are so many blogs & websites out there that are offering LOTS of advice. I just heard one I hadn't heard before. If you are a drinker, have a glass of water between each drink. I'm thinking that will help a couple ways really. What about the one - eating before you go to the party. Now that is a good one. My only problem is I eat before then I get there & feel like I can just skip right to the sugar-filled yummies! When I am asked to bring a dish I always bring my fresh veggies & hummus. That gives me something I can eat & I won't go right to the dessert table.
As for all you fellow exercise nuts - don't kill yourself keeping up with the schedule you normally keep for working out. Allow yourself a vacation day or two to enjoy family & the festivities. Get right back to it though on the 26th! Now for me, we are taking a trip to visit family. We will be in the car for 17 hours one way. We hope to break up the trip to make it a little more enjoyable but that would mean 2 days of no working out for me. When I stay in a hotel I always find the stairs & do some running up & down a few times. My son loves coming with me. Then we walk the halls for a little bit at a brisk pace. Makes me feel like I did something worth while.
I hope this season brings love & family & friends for you all.
Be Blessed & Healthy!
