For family, friends, food and fun…not necessarily for fitness. When we start preparing for the holidays, we usually forget to make time for our health because we are so busy making extra time to clean the house, pack, shop for loved ones, or play host to all the extra visitors that seem to stop by between November and December.
Time to re-adjust your thinking. How does getting two months behind in your fitness make you feel come January? Not great. How about just shifting your mindset to “mainting and training” during these couple of holiday packed months instead of “indulging and bulging”? Like that? Me too! I just came up with it. But seriously, think about it. If you mentally chose NOT to eat an extra cookie because you know you’re maintaining the hard work you have been putting in at the gym or decided to squeeze in a workout before work or at lunch because you don’t want your training to suffer, imagine how great you would feel come January! It’s never too late to start! I’m not saying to stop eating sweets all together, I sure haven’t. But there is no competing with the power of positive and healthy thinking. Change your thinking, and your habits will soon follow.
