Every December I make my clients step on the scale and our goal is to be the same weight in January. December is about maintaining your weight not losing weight. I have done this for years and over 90% of my clients are successful while a few gain just a few pounds. To do this it is important to squeeze in your workouts - even short ones on a daily basis and to be prepared to be tempted when faced with holiday treats.
Try the following:
1) When invited to a party, do not go hungry!! I always eat a bowl of All Bran Buds cereal before heading out. This helps me make fewer and better choices.
2) Hang out with the veggies - stand (burns more calories than sitting!) away from food areas that will sabotage your weight.
3) Allow yourself 2 treats for the night. Eat slowly and savor! I save my selection for the end of the party as a reward for making good choices throughout the evening. Keep the treats small, my reward is usually some chocolate!!
4) Watch the alcohol!! Alcohol is not only an enemy to your metabolism - slows it down, but it affects your will power!! Fill your class with soda water and just a splash of wine.
Have a happy & healthy Holiday!
