Ahhh, I can still taste the delicious Christmas dinner I had with friends and family. It was filled with turkey, stuffing, green bean casserole, and pie. YES, I had some pie and it was delicious! The holidays are a time to spend with friends and family and enjoy the good things about life. I heard a quote once that said it's not about what you eat between Christmas and New Years, it's about what you eat between New Years and Christmas that really counts. And it's completely true! If you splurge over the holidays, one or two weeks of this isn't going to totally throw you off your fitness goals. But 11.5 months of eating sugar, grains, and processed foods will definitely not get you to where you want to be! So enjoy this time with loved ones. Use it as a time to refresh your mind and body. Take a look back at 2016, what did you accomplish and feel good about? What do you feel you need to do better with? Of those things you feel you could do better, think about what may have thrown you off course. If you tried to avoid eating sweets and had a hard time, did you eat these sweets mostly at home or work? Maybe you need to throw out any sweets at home that way you're not tempted; or be sure to take in healthy snacks to work so you have another option. There isn't just one path to success. What may work for one person, may not work for you, so be sure to experiment, take notes, and see what is best for YOU! I hope everyone had an amazing Christmas and has a safe and joyful New Years! Think about the goals you'd like to accomplish this coming year and contact me so we can make a plan and get them going!
