Hello beautiful people,
I hope you all had a lovely thanksgiving and a massive closet fill from black Friday, hello major holiday coming up! Well my thanksgiving food happened yesterday, it was awesome. I ate so much I wouldn’t dare stare at my skinny jeans right now, that much.. As you may already know, thanksgiving marks the beginning of the festive season, a time to get together with family and most of all, giving in to all the food temptations, only issue here is the calories don’t understand the concept of timeout, you may take a break from working out but the calories you take in wont take a break from adding on you know what. Not to worry, am not about to guilt trip you, rather the opposite: here are some tips to keep them calories in check during the favorite season of the year.
Find an activity you enjoy doing and make it work for you and no; passive activities like sitting in front of the TV don’t count. It’s that holiday in a year where you get to spend quality time with your family, play around with the little ones, help in the kitchen, if you’re going on a family holiday, look up active leisure options you can get involved in. one, these will create the best memories and also keep your muscles active and, shred off some calories, this is a legit win-win idea.
Prioritize your food choices, this is tough, almost impossible to see a buffet and not want everything but in life you can’t have everything all at once so you need to prioritize. Besides, not everything on the buffet is worth eating really or alternatively, I find this harder but take in a tiny bit of everything, could be a bad gamble as you might be stuck with food that’s not appealing on your tongue, so I would rather go with the first but if you must, then go with the second and play the cards you’re dealt.
Keep in mind that too much of anything is bad, yes the holidays are a time to indulge but remember, over indulgence is capable of solely being the root cause of health issues. Eat and drink but be in control of what you’re eating and not the other way round. Of course it’s not easy; on Saturday, I overfed on KFC which was followed by major stomach issues later. The trick is to know what tips you off and avoid it. Personally I know not taking my meals on time makes me obsess over KFC so I make sure I take all my meals on time, most of the time.
If all fails, maybe that’s a sign from above that you shouldn’t skip your workout. Head over to my youtube and find some home workouts to do, good thing is each can be done under 10 minutes, so 10 minutes every day of your festive season won’t kill, in fact could be your timeless Christmas gift to yourself, your are welcome haha
