The leaves are changing, the weather is cooling down, and the massive, indulgent meals of the holidays are looming ever closer. This time of year can be tough to stick to many of the healthy habits you may have picked up throughout the year. Luckily, there is a way to enjoy the holidays and everything that comes with it without compromising on your health goals.
You’ve probably been getting the notifications that flu season is approaching and it's time for that flu shot. There are many reasons you don’t want to get sick, mostly that being sick sucks. But it also impacts your diet and exercise regiment leading into the holidays. Keeping up with your regular schedule leading up to the office parties, family gathering and (something else) makes it that much easier to stick to your routine throughout the season.
Holiday gathers can often be loaded with foods that are high in feel good carbs and fats. There isn’t anything wrong with having the green bean casserole or mashed potatoes and gravy, but you want to make sure that you stay consistent with your protein intake. Even if it means consuming more calories a day, the protein will help ensure you stay feeling full and avoid overeating. It will also help to curb the feeling of needing a nap every time you have a big meal.
It can be easy to make excuses for reducing how often you exercise in the next two months. “Oh, I’ll start back up again in January” is a phrase said all too often. There isn’t anything wrong with going to the gym less, or maybe you only attend yoga once a week for the next two months. The best thing you can do is to find supplemental ways to keep yourself active. Go for a walk with family or friends, try doing a Thanksgiving turkey trot or setup that backyard football game. All of these are great ways to keep your metabolism firing even on days where you don’t feel like doing a traditional workout.
These next two months can be the toughest test on anyone’s health and fitness goals. Having that go to snack, meal or shake that can pull you through the day are essential.

We hope that everyone can experience a compromise-free holiday season and continue on their journey to a healthy lifestyle.
