The holidays can be a tough time for people to stay with their diets and workouts. But they are really only as tough as you want them to be. You still get to decide if you’re going to do your morning workout. And you still get to decide if you’re going to eat those grains and deserts at the family dinners.
Everything is still your decision.
Make sure you watch the video below to see how Beth handled her holiday meals and workouts.
If you decide you’re not going to cheat on your meals and workouts, then don’t. It’s really much easier when you tell yourself that you’ve decided not to cheat.
If you decided to cheat for the holidays, just remember that YOU decided to do that. Now you need to decide to get back to work.
Also, get out and do some workouts. Even if they’re outside of the gym. One of my favorite holiday workouts is Alotta Tabata.
*download a tabata timer on your phone, and complete a tabata workout for each exercise.
This will prime your muscles for nutrients to avoid fat gain during your holiday meals.
