As a personal trainer and gym owner, I see this every year. In January, folks come into our facility determined to start working out and lose the weight they gained through the holidays. So this year I thought it would be great to help everyone prior to the holidays to avoid a problem after the holidays. Why wait for the New Year? Why not create some of those good habits now? I am not talking about starting a diet, but starting to change your lifestyle. What is important to do is try to create good habits NOW- before the holidays!
Becky and I have started doing these all year long but we defiantly focus on our habits and what we are doing and NOT doing during the Holiday’s.
Every person can create new habits and or better their current habits with these 4 tips.
Start Researching Now for Healthy Alternatives to Typically Unhealthy Holiday Meals:
There are many alternatives you can use to create healthier meals. For example, instead of mashed potatoes, try mashed cauliflower. A food processor is necessary to create this dish to make it smooth, and adding garlic and other spices can create a great tasting healthy alternative. Another example would be using Ste via or apple sauce instead of sugar to sweeten your baked goods. A little research & planning now goes a long way in keeping you healthy.
