It's that time of the year when you need to stay fired up and focused on your results, before the Christmas break.
You will soon be spending quality time with family and friends over Christmas and the New Year, and enjoying all great food and drinks that go with it.
So now is the most important time to continue to train hard and eat clean!!! Because in 3 weeks time we will all be over indulging during the festive season. Which isn't a bad thing as it is only once a year so enjoy!
I thought I’d share a few tips to help your through the next few weeks.
- Preparation: Simple to do but very important! At the beginning of your week prepare your food. This includes making a shopping list, getting to the shops and doing as much food preparation as possible on the weekend to help you get through the busy week.
- Lock in your workouts: book in the times and days you can allocate to workout and get to them!! Arrange to meet a friend for that little extra motivation if needed.
- Choose which festive events you’ll treat yourself to: leading up to Christmas, you may find you weekends filled with lots of social events. I want you to enjoy catching up with family and friends, but, all those dinners, drinks and long lunches can get in the way of achieving your goals. I recommend picking only one event where you can enjoy those extra calories. Still attend all your social events but ensure you’re only treating yourself once over the weekend.
Following these 3 simple tips will ensure you are able to make the most of the festive season without undoing all your hard work! We will be taking a short break over Christmas but will be back with our 8 week New Year fitness/weight loss Challenge starting January 13th.
I would like to wish you all Merry Christmas and a happy and safe New Year!!
