Wednesday: Planning Ahead for the Holidays!

Let’s talk nutrition guys!

We all know that the Holidays are rapidly approaching and we’ll all most likely be on a cheating spree. Here are some tips for staying prepared and getting through the Holiday Season without losing all of the gains you’ve made.


  • Plan your meals leading up to the holidays.

If you know that you’ll need to eat healthy on the days leading up to the big holiday meals it’ll be much easier to stick to your diet if you have meals planned out. That way you’ll know exactly what you need to shop for. This will be key when roaming through the grocery store and being enticed by all of the treats on the display cases.


  • Plan your cheat meals.

Knowing which days you’re going to cut loose and eat anything you want will actually help you stick to your diet! For example you can say “No I can’t eat that. My big cheat day is Tuesday.” You’ll have a reason to hold off on splurging.


  • Workout on the days leading up to the holidays.

The big meals really only fall on a few days out of the next few weeks. Keep training on the days leading up to them. It’ll help to maintain your fitness and give you a reason to eat healthy leading up to these days.


  • Give yourself reminders to adhere to your commitment to stay healthy!

Set alarms throughout your day on your phone reminding you to eat healthy. It’s easy to forget why you’re trying to stay fit when you’re visiting your hometown or on vacation. Give yourself a helping hand and set some reminders up.


2013 is coming soon and we want to get things started off right. Remember we’re starting next year now! So lets stay as fit as possible in the next few weeks. Lets do it gang!
