Staying healthy during the holidays is beyond hard on anyone! With grandma cooking you her famous desserts and if your married having to go to multiple places in one day! You better have it together before those days come or else its all down hill from there! I get asked all the time how I stay in shape so I thought I would share what has worked for me! I'll be real though this is hard for me too! We eat out a lot at work and choosing the healthiest option isn't always the easiest. But if you mix a couple of these tips together you should be good to go!
1. Find a workout/Gym that you enjoy!
So for me I choose to do Crossfit at @kodaCrossfit 3-4 times! I can't go to the regular gym and be efficient with my time. I just wonder around picking up weight and putting it down, I'm a mess. I personally need to have someone there yelling at me and telling me what to do. I find picking a workout at a gym you enjoy going to will make you more successful in achieving your goals! That might not be Crossfit for everyone but I enjoy it because I enjoy the variety.
2. Find a Workout/accountability partner
This one is huge! I just don't think anyone can really do this on their own. Or if you can I commend you because I certainly can not! Having someone to text or for them to text you everyday making sure you go to the gym will make you think twice about skipping because you have someone else counting on you. I personally don't know what I am going to do when @amandamart15 has shoulder surgery! So everyone be praying for me during this time lol JK Pray for Amanda she's the one having surgery.
3. Figure out a healthy eating system.
Normally during the week I don't have a lot of extra time to meal prep and with my husbands crazy schedule neither does he! So we get our weekly meal preps at @thefitpig. You can get 20 meals for $185! That's less than $10 a meal and in our case thats much better than eating out every day! They offer paleo friendly meals and they list all of your macros on the front of the container. Also designate yourself a cheat day for sanity purposes!
4. Drink lots of water
Gah I could totally be better about this! I love me some Dr. Pepper but I can totally tell the difference between weeks that I am drinking a ton of water and the weeks I am not!
Easier said than done! I know! But find a hobby or something that transports your mind away from your day, something that you truly enjoy and make time to do that! Whether its reading, watching tv, or whatever. Your body needs time to relax and unwind. Personally I love to write and blog for you guys but I can also get down with Real housewives! So just do whatever feels right for you!
When you lack all other motivation just buy new workout attire! It always motivates me to hit the gym!
How do you guys stay healthy during the holidays? I would love to hear some tips and tricks below!
