You’ve heard the saying:
“It’s not what you eat between Thanksgiving and New Years, it’s what you eat between
New Years and Thanksgiving that makes the difference”
There are approximately 40 days from Thanksgiving to New Years, just a little over a month. 40 days is really not that many in the big picture of the year or your life. Most of us will indulge, maybe a bit too much. We will be more tempted by the sweets, holiday parties, drinks with friends, and grab-n-go foods as we rush around doing our holiday shopping.
But there are 325 other days of the year so, don’t beat yourself up too much.
The trick is not allowing those 40 days to turn into 60, 120, or 365 days.
There is an unfortunate consequence to eating unhealthy in those 40 days that is larger than just gaining a few pounds, its…..
losing sight of your goals.
The “snowball effect” can have a huge positive or negative effect on your health depending on which way you roll it. On the positive when you are working out, you start thinking more about what you are eating, you become aware of how much water you are drinking, and how much recovery time you are getting. Each action builds upon the others
But the opposite can also happen.
You have a holiday cookie…then two…..plus you go out for happy hour….you skip a workout…then you feel tired. You think you have lost all the gains you made over the year. But I can assure you this is simply not true.
You maybe busier, you may not be on top of your healthy living game, but choose to make as many good choices as possible. Don’t dwell on the cookie or happy hour. Show gratitude toward yourself for all the positives you did throughout the day…ate a good breakfast, drank plenty of water, went for a 10 minute walk…..there are so many positives throughout your day…you just need to recognize them.
The New year will be here before you know it and you’ll want to have a game plan to get your “snowball” rolling in the positive direction. We have two programs lined up that can help you jump start your healthiest year yet.
