I thought I’d write a little piece to share on tackling this crazy time of year and your super(wo)man aspirations.
Perhaps it is more obvious to me being in the industry and having my own clients going through the trials of keeping fit and healthy whilst attending Christmas functions and holidays etc. But here’s a few common ones that I want to lay out and demolish.
You’ve been working really hard at your fitness goals to date and want to maintain your awesome results whilst on holiday. But your Aunty is trying to throw her homemade biscuits down your throat and Grandpa wants to sit up and drink Scotch with you all night, he insists! Its been a whole year!
You’ve been contemplating this whole fitness gig. Your love handles aren’t disappearing on their own and you want to look great on the beach buuuut it’s Christmas! and how could I possibly start now I mean it’s pretty doomed right? I’ll start in the New Year.
Back to Scenario 1)
You HAVE been working so freaking hard. Why would you let it go in the name of Aunties cookies? Ok they are incredibly delish so how about we go about it like this. Have 1. Saaaavour it, nibble it, dunk it, instagram it, what ever floats your boat
Emphasis on 1…not the whole batch!
Many people make the mistake of ‘oh I busted on 1 why don’t iIjust keep going’.
Because 1 is easier to work off than a dozen. 30 mins of running vs 6 hours. Yup yup. Unless of course your having your holiday conquering Machu Pichu then your pretty safe with the ol’ onesy trick.
It is a holiday after all so enjoy it within reason and step into 2013 with fire not a pot belly.
Just start now.
Remember that 2 steps forward 1 step back deal? Sure beats 2 steps back, 2 steps back.
Strap on your running shoes and call me. Ill see you in the gym.
Sample this: Before you eat it. Does it take you closer to or further from your goal?
