Holiday Survival Guide

Always a good repost . . . Here’s your Holiday Survival Guide:  Learn How to Get Through the Holidays With No Regrets

As a personal trainer, I’ve been told many times “I’ll start eating healthy . . .”

  • Tomorrow.
  • After this party or that party.
  • After graduation.
  • After my vacation.
  • Or the biggie . . . “I will start eating healthier after the Holidays”.  You might want to rethink this, since every month of the year has some sort of holiday, vacation, party or life event:
    • October – Halloween
    • November – Thanksgiving
    • December – Christmas
    • January – New Year’s
    • February – Valentine’s Day
    • March – Spring Break
    • April – Easter
    • May – Memorial Day/Mother’s Day
    • June – Father’s Day/Graduations/
    • Summer starts
    • July – 4th of July/Summer Parties
    • August – Summer/Busy with school
    • September – Labor Day

Then . . . Guess What?? It’s October again . . .
