HOW TO STAY ON SCHEDULE WITH WEIGHT LOSS GOALS DURING THE HOLIDAYS!

Holidays are a time that can make it challenging to stay on track with your weight-loss goals. When you plan meals ahead you have a better chance of navigating the holidays while maintaining your weight loss goals.



As the holidays draw near, here are some tips on how you can stay on track this holiday season. 


Keep a log

 When you keep track of your eating and exercise, you’re more likely to make better decisions during the holidays.

 

Make time to move

No matter how busy the holidays get, it’s crucial to prioritize exercise. Eating more and moving less is the major reason people get off track during the holidays. Skipping workouts throughout the holiday season can sabotage your weight loss. 

Sticking to your exercise regimen during the holiday season can help you continue as you work toward your weight-loss goals. Look ahead at your holiday schedule and festivities beforehand and organize your schedule around that, making sure to carve out time to exercise. 


Don’t arrive hungry to a holiday party

Holiday weight gain is real, and keeping your appetite in check is part of combating it. Plan ahead for holiday parties and festive meals to stay on track. While it’s customary to “bring your appetite” to a holiday gathering, arriving hungry can derail your weight loss. You’re more likely to overeat when you’re hungry, and you’re less likely to make healthier food choices.

Eat a light, protein-packed snack before a holiday event, like apple slices with peanut butter or Greek yogurt with a handful of nuts. This way, when you dig into festive meals, you’ll feel satisfied sooner. 


Make wise holiday food choices

 It’s very difficult to eat perfectly during the holidays, but by making wise meal choices, you can enjoy holiday festivities without depriving yourself. Deciding what to splurge on and where to make healthier choices can make all the difference.

Holidays are often a free-for-all of indulgence, and that’s what you want to avoid. If you know you want to splurge on German chocolate cake, you can then plan on building the rest of your holiday meals around lean proteins like turkey breast and vegetables. This way you don’t feel deprived and can stay on track with your weight loss. Enjoying your favorite foods in appropriate portions can help prevent overeating in the long run. Despite a season filled with calorie-rich meals and sugary treats, you can stay on track with your weight loss during the holidays.


The struggle can be real when all you want to do is cuddle up by the fireplace with a warm blanket and watch holiday movies. Be kind to yourself…you’ve worked hard all year and everything you’ve accomplished wont crumble by adding a few fun holiday plans. Enjoy celebrating with friends and family with foods you love and have a plan in place to continue your progress towards your weight loss goals after the holidays.
