MONDAY MORNING POST:DO YOU WANT TO AVOID GAINING BODY-FAT OVER THE HOLIDAYS? WHAT HAPPENS TO YOU AFTER THANKSGIVING? HERE ARE MY THOUGHTS, WHAT ARE YOURS?
Something I have witnessed over the years with my clients, my friends, my family, myself and probably 98% of our population is that Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years Eve last from, well, Thanksgiving and every day/weekend in between until New Years Eve.
Now, correct me if I am wrong but I count only three days/nights of the actual holiday. Right? Thanksgiving day/night. Christmas day/night (I am not including Hanukkah because I cannot make my point with eight extra days/nights!!!) New Years Eve/Day. Of course there are parties and office parties and family parties and friend's parties and lots of parties. Which means lots of unhealthy foods and lots of alcohol. And if you think about it, 98% of our population (my own guess) starts with the Thanksgiving party and goes full speed ahead from party to party until New Years Day.
And on New Years Day, the good 'ole resolutions come out. The realization that for about a full month all they have been doing is eating a ton of unhealthy food and drinking a ton of alcohol. And now, sitting on the couch with an extra layer of body-fat and a wicked hangover, they vow never to do that again. Until it happens, again.
I suggest making the three days very special. On Thanksgiving day/night, Christmas day/night and New Years Day/Night go full speed and enjoy every minute of that day/night. Eat tons of unhealthy food and drink tons of alcohol. And then stop. Until the next actual day/night of the actual holiday.
It works!!! And it feels great to have those three days to eat and drink a ton. And it feels even better on New Years Day to know you had a fabulous holiday season, how it was meant to be, without the guilt or the extra 10 pounds that creep up and never go away.
