Don’t gain weight over the holidays

I had all sorts of amazing thoughts to write about and then I got hit with the sick stick. My mind is a blur right now! I get a pretty good cold about once a year. It’s usually when the temperature drops 20 degrees overnight. I don’t know why! I’m getting about a 1/4 done of what I usually do. That being said, this will be short and sweet!! Monday started out great. In fact I was going to do the LESS IS MORE approach with my workouts. I cleaned the house all morning and then did a ONE hour workout for the whole day! (: Tuesday was super funny. I went to teach my workout class at 9:00 a.m. when my energy level suddenly dropped. My 12 lb. weights felt like 40 lbs. I didn’t even do the workout! So!! A little forced R&R for me (: I’ll be back at ’em in no time especially since I’m now hosting Thanksgiving dinner to 60+ people or so! That got me busy with the finishing touches on some decor items for my house! I’ll take some pics. when my deliveries arrive.

My words of advice today are about how to stay in control of your weight during the holiday season! This is the perfect time to set some goals! I’ve decided to schedule a photo shoot for the last week of December to keep me on target! Is that crazy!? My last project for my 40th year is to take some photos and send them into Oxygen mag! One of my client’s is an amazing photographer so it will be easy!

Here are a few tips to keep you in check!

Keep working out-Don’t let the busyness of the season make you miss your workouts! You’ll feel better and have less stress too!

Have healthy food on hand-Sometimes we forget to make dinner and go shopping for healthy produce. Keep up your dinner menus and have some cut up veggies in the fridge at all times!

Eat every 3 hours-This will help you with overeating. When we’re busy we forget to eat and then we eat way too much because we’re starving.

Drink more water-Drink a cup of water before you eat. This will fill you up so you don’t eat as much.

Well, that’s all I got today. Listen to your body and take a break when needed. Smile and Sleep!

Here’s a workout for those of you that have energy to do this! I’ve been wanting to try this one!! ¬†Also, check out One D’s new album. Me and my daughter will soon be singing all the new tunes!
