•Give away your leftovers and don’t accept any to “take home” if you are eating at someone else’s house. The only leftovers you are allowed to keep is white meat turkey (breast.) Toss gravy, mashed potatoes, stuffing and yes…the cakes, pies, cookies, candy and other assorted goodies. You’ll never get “back to normal” with that stuff cluttering your fridge.
•The day after Christmas Day…work out! Get back to your normal diet and your normal routine. If you allow your exercise program to falter you might not start again until February or March of next year. Exercise is your friend and should not be neglected. Remember all hard work you put in during year. Don’t let Holidays derail you! DO NOT use Holiday season as an excuse to continue poor eating habits and skipping workouts once social functions are finished.
If you follow my suggestions you can emerge from “dreaded” Holidays without having a gained a pound and with a new sense of control and confidence. You will have EMPOWERED yourself to “enjoy” but not “over-do”.
Eat right, workout, BE HAPPY and most of all, have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
