Okay, it is almost here again. Holiday season is fast approaching; the cold weather, the good food, and the parties! Oh the parties! Holiday season begins at the end of October. This is wher the average women gains 8-12 lbs from Now until February.
People ask me all the time “AJ you must get busy in January right?” I tell them no, I get busy in October, because I am into prevention. Think of it this way; if you lose just 5 lbs, or just break even you have made some serious progress. Once the new year starts, instead of panicking you should already be in tip top form. I see the same vicous cycle every year.
We stop working out, we get busier, and go to more parties; it could be corporate, family, or recreational. I am not saying it is bad to spend time with friends and family, but it is important to continue to exercise and eat best you can in these times. Here are five tips to help you through the holiday season
#1 – re focus yourself and establish concrete goals. Steel yourself and really focus on having a breakthrough winter.
#2 – be careful with you alcohol consumption. Make sure when you go out you drink an extra 32 ounces of water at a minimum to minimize the damage. I made it simple for myself, four weeks ago I started going totally dry.
#3 – Reach out to others and help them get fit. If you are holding someone else accountable, you will hold yourself accountable.
#4 – follow the tips and recipes on www.ichoosefit.org for healthy holiday options
#5 – contact me for a workout program, or just a motivational pep talk. Its free!
