The holidays are right around the corner, and as blessed as we are to have holiday celebrations to enjoy with friends and family, most of us know that we gain weight over the holidays. Well, here’s a way you can party AND keep the weight off.
Here are some realistic tips to help you enjoy your celebrations without gaining weight. The #1 Tip is to start on a fitness program BEFORE the holidays.
Enjoy the interview with my very physically-fit daughter-in-law, Jenna Serrano, who is a health coach and personal trainer. She’s a cut 4’11” powerhouse who’s helped me lose weight without sacrificing any celebrations.
Jenna designed a program to get fit BEFORE the holidays and stay fit afterwards. She shares tips on how to eat, drink, and be merry without the alcohol or cheating when eating simple carbs and sweets. You CAN celebrate the holidays and stay fit – don’t sacrifice your thighs for the pies – have fun celebrating but learn HOW to do it without gaining a pound.
Hire a personal health coach, and start losing weight and getting in shape 3 months before your holiday parties begin.
If you lose weight before the holidays, you will have a routine established that helps you resist sweets, alcohol, and over-eating. When you consistently eat whole foods, less sugar, healthy fats and oils, and exercise (move your body), you will have more energy and mental clarity, and you will lose weight and have less body fat. You’ll feel so good, you really won’t want the crappy food that weighs you down and makes you feel horrible.
Get in shape before the holidays so you won’t want the unhealthy sweets and alcohol.
Begin detoxing before the holidays. If you remove toxins that are affecting your health, you will start feeling better before the holidays begin, and this also supports your immune system. This can help you resist catching a cold or the flu when around more people, and if you continue detoxing after holiday parties, you won’t gain extra weight and can prevent a hangover.
When at a holiday party, first eat the fresh veggies and fruits, and focus more on the meats and protein dishes than the simple carb dishes replete with sugars, both refined sugar and artificial sugars, and toxic seed oils.
Proteins will fill you up, and if you eat a piece of pie or a brownie, you’ll enjoy a smaller slice because you really will be full.
Keep exercising. The morning after a holiday party, get out of bed and move your body as soon as possible. Get up and exercise and return to eating your regular diet that your health coach has had you eating over the past 3 months.
Don’t drink and resist the alcohol. Jenna has amazing “mocktail” recipes, which are ways you can mix a drink without the booze. We drink mocktails all the time, and you don’t miss the alcohol – really!
In the youtube video, Jenna and I show you how to mix a mocktail and share other tips to enjoy a celebration with a non-alcoholic mixed drink or beer.
Happy Holidays, everyone. Yes, Thanksgiving and Christmas are weeks away, but your holiday starts NOW – get fit before the holidays, and don’t sacrifice your thighs for pies.
