Simply Effective: Holiday Plan
Saturday, November 24, 2012
It's 2 days after Thanksgiving, which we all know can start the downward spiral of over eating and "I don't have time to exercise, eat well, not be stressed," excuses.
I Will Not Gain this Season.
I hardly ate on actual Thanksgiving... I was just too busy to pick at the apps and didn't pick and taste as I cooked. I did, have some turkey and gravy and then some pecan pie... Enough calories for the day!
I have worked out each day and will continue to get in at least 20 minutes of fitness at least 5 days. If I am going to a party or a dinner, I will balance my day with lighter choices throughout the day and make sure I get in lots of steps and movement!
I am not going to stress the small stuff. I have plans to make most of my gifts, but, if they don't happen, they don't happen. I love the holidays. I want to make these things and decorate the house and send the Christmas Cards. I am not doing it because I have to. I think this is important to distinguish.
Anyway. Short and simple...
1) Eat well and enjoy the food of the season in moderation
2) Move lots
3) Spend time with family and friends
4) Not get over stressed about the small stuff...
