Keep Active. Try to keep your exercise/ workout routine as normal as possible for as long as possible. Then for the days you can’t get to the gym or your workout class, or your personal training, go for a long walk, or a jog/ run, or bike ride instead. Better still, do a workout a home!
Drink plenty of water. Your body wants to be at 50-60% water. If it’s not, our systems start acting up. You will be out of routine as well as probably consuming alcohol meaning the chances of dehydration are high.
Think of your meals over the whole day. Have a good healthy breakfast and a salad for lunch and then you can enjoy your dinner 😊. Or if you want that fry on Stephen’s Day, keep lunch and dinner relatively healthy. For dinner, try to stick to either a starter/main or a main/dessert. And remember your portion sizes for the main dinner! But do help yourself to extra vegetables! And have loads of nice fruit available as a substitute for rich chocolate sweets!
Be careful of drinking your calories. Festive coffees and hot chocolates are in every café at the minute. Remember, one hot drink can be the equivalent of a whole meal, so proceed with caution. When it comes to alcohol, think of it as it is, calorific with no nutritional significance and one tends to snack/ eat more when drinking. So drink in moderation.
ENJOY CHRISTMAS. It’s a time for family and friends. Happy Holidays!!!!!!!!!!!
Remember Christmas is only one day! You won’t ruin all your progress in one day, so enjoy and get back on track ASAP.
