1. Portion Control
7. Be Kind To Yourself
We hate when we hear Personal Trainers advise their clients to not “make room for mistakes” or “don’t let one slip up ruin their day” . While they have good intentions they can set the client up for failure by merely saying consuming certain foods are a “mistake” or “slip up” – in this case there is always guilt associated with eating them. LOSE THE GUILT!! Accept that during the holiday season you will most likely ENJOY (IF you’re going to eat it you might as well enjoy it!) foods that you normally wouldn’t eat year round and even more likely foods that aren’t doing any favors for you health wise. BUT this is the festive season– so if you want a bit of Christmas Pudding– have it (just not every day), want a mince pie? Well have that too, just don’t overdo it and save those less than healthy snacks & foods for the parties and the get together not the times that you are running around starving and reaching for whatever food you can find or eating out of boredom!
