During the holidays I like to enjoy a few treats, while still taking care of my body. Here are a few tips to help you stay on track while you enjoy the holidays!

Eat before you go

Eat a small meal or a light snack before you leave for your parties or events. This prevents you from showing up hangry and wanting to eat everything in sight. Tip: Keep a protein shake or protein bar in your purse in case you need a quick snack on the way to an event.

Stay hydrated

Keep up your water intake! More water in your system = fewer sugar cravings and keeps you fuller longer. Talk about a win-win!

Remain active

Make sure to utilize your mornings. It’s easy to stay snuggled up in bed, but find a workout buddy and sweat it out right away in the morning! This ensures that you get a workout in before work, parties or any other holiday events.

Bring a dish to pass

Talk to the host and offer to bring a fruit or veggie tray. By showing up with a healthy option, you know that you have at least one guilt-free munchie!  

Keep an eye on your drinks

By all means, have a drink and enjoy yourself! But keep an eye on what you are drinking- those sugary cocktails add up fast. Always drink a glass of water between drinks and do your best to choose clear liquors, like Vodka.

By all means, enjoy the holidays and the festive treats. These tips help me to enjoy the holiday season while not putting on extra weight or feeling sluggish all month long!
