Ahhh the festivities are all around and it’s so wonderful to see the smiles on everyone’s faces.
Also an important thing to think about is your festive intakes. We all tend to eat too much and have a few too many drinks; this Christmas party, this BBQ, it’s a very sociable time which can make healthy eating and living seem impossible. I can assure you it’s easier than you think.
You can still have some festive drinks, just try to add a drink of water in between to help maintain hydration and also keep the alcohol moving through the body. Dancing is the best way to burn alcohol as well as your body tends to use it as the first fuel source.
‘Dancin the night away’. Just try not to over do it. The liver and kidneys will thank you.
Food. Food. More Food. Guys it’s very easy to overindulge, and these foods are sooooo good. Only eat until you are full and then have a drink of water. Food choices – there are amazing meats and salads and even sneaky desserts that are actually really low in sugar, full of protein, mono-unsaturated fats (these are the good ones – like avocado) and flavour. Grab the homemade spinach or hommus dip (light philli is a good option) and some carrots for the healthier alternative to cakes, cheeses, choccies and lollies.
Continue to train throughout this time. It keeps you feeling good, more relaxed and able to get through the busy season. You may need to tweak some training times but hey, a tweak here and there is always worth the shake up.
We wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a very Safe and Happy New Year, Ho Ho Ho.
