Now that I have that song stuck in your head…but really for many the next few weeks are a WONDERFUL time of the year – a time for family, friends, crazy shopping experiences, and a time to be grateful for what you have around you.
Its also a time for lots of sweet treats, good food, and glasses of wine! All you have to do is wear that baggy sweater in your closet and the spandex pants to the party so you won’t feel how tight your clothes are getting – right?
This holiday season you’re going to stay in your skinny jeans and make it through the parties and the toasted marshmallows without worrying about your weight or having an EXTRA 5lbs to lose in the New Year! How?
Well, I’ve enlisted the help of my friends and fellow trainers on Twitter and Facebook to offer their own suggestions for keeping off the holiday pounds. Try one of the tips below and stick to your flat stomach diet this holiday season.
Whats your BEST tip for staying away from holiday treats and sticking to your flat stomach diet?
Teresa Ann Hanson – Have an alternative food so you don’t feel like your missing out
Linda Paoletti Muszynski/Leslie Cooper Unterburger – Putting my jeans on!
Lauren Englehardt – Remind yourself why you are doing this – not just for looks but for your health too!
Stacey Corwin – Suck on mentholated cough drops at a party – they make EVERYTHING taste bad!
Heather Sloan Griffin – Eat some fruit before you go to the party and lots of water too – they’ll fill you up so you won’t be tempted
Abby Campbell – PLAN PLAN PLAN and MORE planning!!!
Carrie Mandela – Competition Prep!
Christina Winkle – Motivate yourself with what’s coming up in the New Year – “I want to wear a nice dress and show of my toned arms”
Carun Braunstein – Don’t let too much time go between meals so that you get TOO hungry and make a bad decision about what you eat.
Barbara Server – I get two cheat meals a week, so I try and plan them around the holiday parties
Inga Duncan Thornell – Keep a journal and make sure to count your calories.
Patti Skok – Keep in mind all the hard work you put in all year to maintain your health and fitness.
Linda Covert Robinson – Think about the jeans…jeans can be SO uncomfortable when they are tight!
Holly Rigsby – Rid yourself of self-sabotaging view… Instead think about what you can do to keep you fat loss efforts in check.
Sheryl Hawkins – Eating consistently each day…Staying full, keeping your metabolism rev’d…drink a protein shake on your way out the door to a party…avoid starchy carbs and if I want a little dessert – I have a small portion and consider it a ‘treat night’….When this is a lifestyle, we don’t take vacations from our goals, health or happiness! Don’t let Nay-Sayers get you down – we’ll hear a lot of insecure comments, each one should put a smile on your face, as no one ever criticizes those making the same “MISTAKES” they are!
