This time of year can be really stressful with holiday social events, family gatherings, gifts to buy and cards to send in addition to the “normal busy.” It’s tempting to put your Bride Fit workouts and healthy eating on the back burner till January 1, which is what most women do! The feeling that we need to do “all or nothing” is the main reason why we stall health & wellness between Thanksgiving and the New Year. The truth is that by doing the best you can during this extremely busy season you will continue to release fat, gain strength and sculpt your body! I’ve had clients start their bride fit program in November and feel amazing during the holidays and jump into the New Year with a huge head start compared to most. You are the Exceptional Bride if you are reading this so you are not in the category of “most.”
As your Bride Fit coach I don’t want you to focus on the numbers on the scale as a measure of your success but rather on everyday decisions that will support you getting healthier and happier. Choosing real food over processed fake food, drinking enough water, taking your vitamins daily, getting quality sleep, moving your body to reduce stress, meditate, having feelings of gratitude and appreciation all contribute to a Bride Fit body and mind and impact your health and happiness.
Planning and preparing is the key to your success! Here’re some tips to apply that will keep you on your Bride Fit path:
- Liquid day. With the extra food and cheer during the holiday’s plan on a liquid day one or two days per week to balance out some of the over eating or drinking that may happen! Protein shakes, juices, soups and broths. It’s a great rest for your digestion system and will free up some cooking time!
- Don’t skip all your workouts. Time is an issue but trust me, even if you can only fit in 15 minutes, it’ll be well worth it! You will reduce stress, burn extra calories and keep the momentum of your program going.
- Skip the bread, cake and cookies. We can’t have it all ladies, so if you want to have the wine or cocktails skip the bread and dessert. Cutting out the foods that don’t provide any nutrients will support your bride fit
