- Avoid sitting for prolonged periods of time like when watching games or when eating.
- Start each day with a game plan, just like a great coach going into a big game. Track your food intake and activity level.
- Drink water as much as you can! Your brain can sometimes confuse thirst with hunger.
- To alleviate the potential negative side effects of the season, try working out in the morning so won’t get distracted later in the day by any holiday plans. Also, get plenty of rest and maintain an organized list so you won’t be stressing about what to do first.
- Always have an emergency bag of healthy food that requires no refrigeration and can be readily eaten as is.
- Remember there is always time and opportunity for a workout. Plan your workouts for the week and write them in your schedule like a boss, make sure they are a part of your day.
- When the party is over, it is time to dump the junk!
- ‘Enjoy the holiday, but don’t let it go from a day of indulgence to a month of indulgence that leads to unwanted habits that continue beyond the holiday season.’
