I asked 12 fitness pros how they manage to stay on track during the holidays. Listen to what my girl, Lisa Mustard has to say.
Just because there are holiday treats a plenty doesn’t mean I sacrifice my goals for a buffet:-) if I see somethingI really want I will work it into my nutrition plan for the day or week.
I’ve tried the white knuckle approach in the past (avoiding parties due to food temptations) and I’ve done the willy nilly approach (free for all!! Taste everything!) — neither worked out well–
Deciding ahead of time to stay compliant allows me flexibility and I feel better about my choices because I’m aware of them and why I choose what I choose.
I’ve evolved in to this approach for sure — I get a little bit better at it each yr:-)
