Just shared these amazing tips in my December Blog. What are some GREAT Damage Limitation things you do around Xmas? Do you have any tips?
Here are My 10 Healthy Habits at Xmas:
1: WORKOUT - Daily if you can, just 10 - 20 minutes and forget the intense cardio. Go for lifting some heavy weights - or some simple pilates. My membership proved this last 3 months with our last challenge.
So many people ate healthy BUT still had a weekend drink, meals out and went on holiday but committed to the daily workouts...
AND still saw amazing results :-)
2: Grocery shop online - Create a weekly clean + healthy friendly
shopping list & save hours of boring supermarket shopping and get it all delivered. Save money as you won’t be tempted to impulse buy and keeps your bang on track with your goals.
If you are out socialising then stick to clean food at home.
3: Make a plan - Download a free meal planner to keep you on track (click here)
Most people find following a plan really helps motivate them to say on track.
4: BOOZE - you KNOW how to do this.....have a glass of water between drinks, stick to your vodka and tonics, gin and tonics.
5: Start your day with tall glass of water. Then a glass of water for every coffee you drink.
6: Gratitude - Start the day with 1 minute of GRATITUDE. Think of all the things you are so happy, grateful and thankful for. It's a great mood enhancer and choose to feel happy knowing you are really looking after yourself. This is a fabulous mental boost and helps you feel motivated and in the right mindset.
7: Your first meal of the day needs to be lean protein and good fats - Ditch the carb-loaded cereals and go for eggs, smoked salmon, avocado or whizz up a greens juice. OK OK that's not going to happen every day BUT mix things in. Eat the first meal of the day whenever you like you don’t have to eat the minute you get up. Focus on the food quality.
If you are on holiday try NOT to start the day with chocs or alcohol (OH MY)...... then whatever happens for the rest of the day you have started with a healthy protein and fat meal.
8: Meal Prep - It’s so cool these days to take your food with you in your Tupperware. Take 10 minutes each evening to prep your food for the next day. Batch cook and load up your slow cooker saves hours of cooking and clearing away and keeps you bang on track.
9: Sleep - Develop a good sleep routine.
Sleep is where the body resets and burns tons of fat. Cut down your screen time in the evening, try a relaxing hot bath with essential oils, sleep in a bat cave & take your iphone out of the room.
10: Stick to quality meals and cut out the snacking which will help you balance your blood sugar through the day (AT LEAST A LITTLE GOES A LONG WAY!)
