Staying on track is essential when maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Can you enjoy a great holiday “treat meal”? Of course! Don’t deprive yourself! Enjoy a dessert you usually wouldn’t touch during the rest of the year! The thing that gets us into trouble is the binging! During the holidays, or when taking a mini break from your healthy lifestyle, it’s OK to enjoy yourself; just don’t overdo it. Working out also plays a critical role during the holidays. Gaining weight is simple calories in versus calories out! If you are enjoying a few “treat meals,” skipping even just a quick workout will not be beneficial in the long run!
