HOLIDAY DO's and DON'Ts to Stay "On Point":
Don’t bank calories. Skipping breakfast, snacks & lunch only sets you up for a big pig-out at dinner time. Eat on your normal schedule to avoid overeating at dinner time.
Don’t skip your workout. Consistency is especially important this time of year.If you’re short on time, don’t let yourself off the hook. Even a quick 15 min. workout can help you maintain your fitness level, so make the commitment to get one in!
Don't give up #sweets. Instead, have a slither of your favorite #dessert and savor every bite. Choose moderation over deprivation as the latter almost always backfires.
Do track your calories. Keeping track will help you avoid sleepwalking through your decisions and regretting it later.
Do load up on turkey. It is a great source of lean, healthy protein. Your best option is white meat as it is lower in calories per ounce than dark.
Do exercise restraint. Go easy on the mashed potatoes, gravy, stuffing, cranberry sauce, cake, and pie. The calories add up quickly.
