The Holiday Season is Upon Us! Here are few Tips on How To Stay On Track This Year!
By: Coach Michelle & Coach D

This year may look different for most of us with socially distant and smaller gatherings for the holidays. It’s important now more than ever that we take care of our health and wellness. Take a minute to read through some suggestions for how to enjoy the season without going overboard.

1. Reel It In. The holiday season isn’t just about your favorite foods. Start some new traditions with your family and loved ones. For example once your Thanksgiving day meal is over leave the food table and hang out somewhere else with your company. Outdoor gatherings are highly recommended over indoors anyway. After your meal head out for a socially distant walk or hike if you have access to some trails.
Once the day is over reel it in. Out of the 35 days between Thanksgiving and New Years try to remember that Thanksgiving is only ONE of those days. Don’t let a special occasion take over the whole month. Enjoy and savor your favorite Thanksgiving Day food and leave it at that.

2. Meal Prep. So many people dread these two words and say “but I don’t have time.” Everyone has an hour. And if you really feel crunched for time, try a healthy meal delivery company or a grocery delivery service like Instacart. Meal prep is SO important. Keep it simple. A quick google search turns up tons of healthy, quick crockpot recipes that require very little skill or time. Overnight oats are a great go-to breakfast or snack that takes minutes to prepare. Even making one or two healthy meals for the week will make a difference. Frozen vegetables, uncooked lean turkey patties, chicken sausage, and pre-cooked and cut sweet potatoes are all easy, healthy food items that take minutes to whip up.

3. Stay Active. Now is not the time to stop going to the gym, and it is a great time to pick up a new fitness routine. Get out and walk during lunch breaks and track your steps for accountability. Get a fitbit or download a wellness app onto your iPhone. ALWAYS take the stairs, and park further away when holiday shopping.

Burpees….Love them or not, they’ll get the job done for an at-home no equipment work out!

Can’t make it to the gym? Body weight workouts are very effective if you are pressed for time. We have a variety of “At Home Wods” that can be done anywhere. We also have a variety of bodyweight movements you can find on our YouTube channel! If you are traveling, check out local gyms, search for safe running or walking routes, and find ways to stay active. Get family members to go for walks to break up meals. Listen to some podcasts to get a break. Read: Best 42 Podcasts and 50 Ways to Walk More.

4. Stay hydrated and limit alcohol intake. This is one of the hardest things for most people. Booze is everywhere this time of year. Your body has no use for it nutritionally; it turns to sugar and is stored as fat, leaves you dehydrated, and leads to poor late night diet choices. Eating healthy and working out all week will not undo the damages of binge drinking every weekend, and yes, it will eventually catch up to you. This is not saying never drink again; just pick your battles.
If and when you do drink, choose something lower in calories and sugar (vodka soda with a splash of juice, light beer, red wine, etc.). Stay away from mixed drinks, and make sure to drink lots of water. Read: Healthy Water Alternatives and Bottoms Up: Choosing Healthier Drinks.

5. Bring Your Own Everything. Take this opportunity to stay in control of your food intake at a gathering. Right now it’s highly encouraged that you bring your own food and drinks to any small gathering. This is a good opportunity to limit the amount of junk you may have taken in otherwise.

6. PORTION CONTROL. If you don’t bring your own meal be sure to practice portion control. When attending a holiday gathering, try to make most of your plate vegetables, the other quarter lean protein (think grilled, baked, broiled), and the last quarter whole grains or starchy veggies. All the fiber from the veggies will help keep you full and satisfied and will help with sugar cravings. If you are surrounded by all your favorite treats, this will also help prevent you from overeating. For desserts, pick a small portion of something you know you’ll really enjoy and leave it at that. Dessert is fine in moderation!
