With Thanksgiving behind us, it is time to return to ‘normaliy’ and follow our daily routines. Despite the food consumed during the festive weekend, it is necessary to dial back, realize it’s over and get back on track. However, that’s sometimes easier said than done. Here are some tips to prevent a downward spiral and bounce back from the break.
1. Say goodbye to the food
Thanksgiving leftovers are surely a thing. We don’t like to waste food, so we put it in our fridge and keep it as long as it can last – eating away at it until there’s no more. Nevertheless, some of these foods were indulging in aren’t exactly healthy. Keep the turkey, make it a side or main dish, but get rid of the pie, the mashed potatoes and gravy, the stuffing, etc. If you can’t force yourself to throw it away, give it away! I’m certain friends of yours would love some of that good food – but don’t jeapordize their gains of course. You could also donate the food to local shelters in need of it. It doesn’t have to go to waste.
2. Replenish the good stuff
After getting rid of all the unnecessary junk, take a ride to your local grocery store and start reloading on the good stuff. Make a game plan, a list and bring someone with you with the mentality of “we need to get back on track!” Remember that you simply took ONE step backwards, you don’t have to start over, you just have to resume where you left off. Everyone slips (especially during the holidays), but get in gear and catch it before it becomes a relapse.
3. Get your butt to CFE
You got rid of your bad food, you’ve stocked up on the good ones, now it’s time to get sweating again – burn away all those festive calories. Get back into the routine of working out at least 3 times a week. Stop being stationary and get active again. Once you get the feel of that, you wont want to stop!
4. Christmas is coming
With yet another big holiday approaching, get prepared. Learn from your Thanksgiving experience and see what you can do differently. If you beat it like a champ, then keep that up. Though if you didn’t, address what needs to be addressed. Despite all that, make sure to have fun. These are simple tips, but don’t let them ruin your great day. Stay safe, have fun and eat good foods.
