The Holidays are here! Well, they were… now we are in the “between Christmas and New Years” period of time where most people are thinking… holy crap I feel like crap because I ate like crap. Holiday hack #1 – take off your now too tight jeans, put on some super loose sweats and go for a walk. Easier said than done, I know. Food comas can get the best of all of us and laying on the couch watching football and wondering when we will have room for seconds (or thirds.. or fourths.. fifths?) sounds much more appealing.. but you’ll probably have more room sooner if you get out and get your blood flowing and burn some calories!
Holiday hack #2 – There are 7 days between Christmas and NYE. The amount of people who say “i’ll just wait until the new year” are just ASKING to add an extra 5 lbs (at least) over the week. A few cheat days can add up – but a cheat WEEK? That’s going to hurt. And its going to bring you one step closer to developing CRAP for habits. I am going on day 3 of crap eating (I just had PIZZA – not vegan or even dairy free FYI and yes, my stomach is pissed), and I know if I eat like crap for even 1 more day, I’m going to magically turn into a tub of lard. It’s like some crazy wizard science or something. If I don’t listen to my body and stop eating crap and get off my @$$, I’ll turn into a whole big tub of lard. or maybe I’ll turn into a hot pile of crap. Since that’s how I’ve been eating. DONT STEP ON THE SCALE! The little bitch will just tell you horrible things and no one needs to know how much damage they’ve done. Just eat some damn vegetables, work on getting off your ass and then, after a week or so, try out that pretty little scale and you’ll magically appreciate the number (and more importantly, how you feel) a whole lot more.
Holiday hack #3 – Quit reading this and get up and move. Quit planning for your amazing 2017 health and fitness goals and start them NOW. Nuff said.
