"11 Tips for a More Healthful Holiday Season"

 

1.  Make sure you keep logging your food and exercise as this keeps us accountable.

2.  Take a weight loss vacation.  If weight loss is a goal of yours put it on the back burner during the holidays.

3.  Sign up for a New Year's race.

4.  Put new workout gear on your gift wish list.

5.  Plan an active outing for every holiday celebration.

6.  Earn your treats before you indulge. Eat healthy prior to heading out to the holiday party.

7.  Sleep more.  Sleep deprivation literally messes with your mind and your appetite.

8.  Remix your own recipes.  Make one simple ingredient swap for a healthier version of your recipe.

9.  Weigh-in weekly.  Don't obsess over the holiday, but weigh-in once a week to keep your weight in check.

10.  Don't wait until January to start exercising. 

11.  Listen to your tummy.  If you're not hungry don't overindulge at a holiday feast. 

 

 Note to Self:  With so much to be thankful for, perhaps the greatest of all illusions is that life could somehow be better than it already is.
