With Holidays soon approaching, the stress is beginning to kick in! For all of those striving to keep their health intact, this is a difficult time.
You may be worried about reversing all the hard work you’ve put in over the last few months, crushing your goals. However, now’s not the time to falter! Here are a few tips to help you stay strong:
- Indulge at Holiday Dinner: This goes against what most people will tell you. We believe that you shouldn’t have to make so many sacrifices. Enjoy that stuffing and all of your other favorite Recipes!
- Properly Hydrate: Proper Hydration is important. Indulging is fine, as long as you’re drinking water for support.
- Rest and Relax: Skip that morning gym workout! Spend the morning with family. Take some time to be grateful and put your mind at ease.
- Carefully Digest: Everyone craves delicious foods but no one wants to get sick. Slowly experience your meal and rest between courses.
Your day will vary depending on your work schedule. If you have off Friday, sleep in and rejuvenate. Your body will need every extra bit of rest it can get this time of year.
You should wake up mid-morning with lots of energy. All of those complex carbs are ready to be put to good use! A cup of Coffee with an Egg Omelet and Fresh Fruit is a great start. Not a fan of Coffee or Caffeinated Tea? Try Thermogenics & CLA to kick you into high gear! Your body may still be craving leftovers that are hard to resist. Don’t let them go to waste!
Have some leftover Turkey for lunch with Holiday Roasted Vegetables and a refreshing Garden Salad. The key is to avoid carbohydrate consumption over the 3-day period.
