The holidays are officially here and they are notorious for wreaking havoc on our schedules, and waistline. Here are a few tips to stay the course during this tempting season.
Go To Bed Early
It’s easy to stay up later each night to play catch-up during the holidays, but a lack of ZZZZZs will add up. Sleep is essential for your overall health, and we tend to snack on unhealthy foods the later it gets in the night.
Reduce Your Portions
The holidays bring new flavors that maybe we haven’t experienced in months. That’s no reason to get seconds or thirds during the same meal. If you feel you want seconds, try walking away from the table (maybe start cleaning the kitchen) and if you still want seconds after 10 min, then do what you must. Remember, there will be snacks and goodies everywhere during the holidays, so stay strong!
Limit Your Alcohol Intake
Alcohol is just empty calories. Sorry to say. The more we drink each night, the higher the chances we’ll skip our workouts and increase our waistline. Try alternating a glass of water between each drink during the holidays to help reduce your intake.
Happy Healthy Holiday Season!
