Don’t get FAT for Christmas, get FIT! Or at least STAY FIT!

So, I don’t know about you all, but the 6 weeks between Thanksgiving and New Year’s I end up gaining quite a bit of weight. My pants don’t fit in January and I feel like my insides are covered in a layer of sludge! I’m sluggish in my workouts and some movements actually get harder with the added body weight. Every year I say I am not going to let that happen again, but it does. Over and over again…But this year will be different! Why? Because I’ve got a plan. But I need your help in executing it. I’m going to venture out on a limb here and take a guess that the same thing happens to other people too…

So, here is my organized plan for our holiday season eating habits!

3 days on, 1 day off, 2 days on, 1 day off and repeat…

The plan is, no treats/snacks/extras during the ON days. I’m not prescribing what you may or may not eat. It’s up to you to decide. You know what your weakness is. Choose something(s) that you tend to over-indulge in. Maybe its cookies or pies or alcoholic drinks or sweetened coffee drinks, soda or peanut butter cookies…you decide. If someone were to tell me I couldn’t eat any bread for 3 days that would not be a challenge because I don’t eat it anyway. But, my weakness during the holidays is definitely home-made cookies. So, I’m going to choose to avoid those 100% during my ON days. And when I’m OFF, if I feel like it, I’m going to eat some of those peanut butter cookies with the Hershey kiss on top!

If we start Monday, Nov. 24th, it’ll give you Thanksgiving and Christmas off.

It will also give you New Year’s Day OFF, but if we need to swap out New Year’s Eve with New Year’s Day, we can do that. But not both.
