Living Your Healthiest Holidays
November 9, 2017
The holidays are a wonderful time of the year. Families come together, holiday music is playing all over the radio, the delicious holiday foods and desserts start coming around… it really is the most wonderful time of the year! End the year of 2017 right this holiday season by living your healthiest you!
Don’t overstuff! Moderation is key
Let’s face it…one of the best parts of the holiday season is all the food you get to eat! The turkey, stuffing, ham, pie, cookie trays… is your mouth watering yet? If moderation and portioning is difficult for you during the holiday season, just follow this guide: ½ plate of veggies, ¼ plate of protein and ¼ plate of carbs. Oh! And of course, a piece of dessert is completely acceptable. It’s okay to indulge here and there…as long as you don’t go overboard.
Don’t slack on that exercise!
It’s hard to stick to an exercise routine around the busy schedule that comes with the holiday season, but we promise it will be worth it! Even if it’s just taking a 30-45 minute walk each day, a little something is better than nothing! Another great idea is to break up your workout throughout the day. Each mental break you have from work, do 2 minutes of an exercise. Crunches, push-ups, jumping jacks, a brisk walk…anything to get you up and going! Heck, you may even be able to sneak in another bite of dessert if you work hard enough
