Let’s face it, the holiday season is one of those times when you don’t want to be on a regiment. You don’t want to constantly have to count carbs and worry about what you’re eating. You simply just want to have fun and stuff your face with a few family and friends. That’s the fun part about the holidays. You can let loose and just be free. But at the same time, we all know that you want to stay healthy as well. You don’t want to completely let yourself go. So how do you find that balance when the holidays roll around? Well, today we’re going to tell you how you can stay motivated to eat healthy during the holidays. It doesn’t have to be a struggle.
Find the reason
One way to stay motivated not only with eating healthy but with anything is by remembering the reason why you’re doing it in the first place. You need your anchor. You always need something that you can come back to remind yourself just why you need to stay on your road. Sure, maybe it’s easy to chow down on some cookies this season, and there’s nothing wrong with that. But just remember at the end of the day why you wanted to eat healthy in the first place and it’ll be easier to put some of those cookies down.
Plan your meals
There’s no way to plan what your relatives and friends are going to be having during the holiday season. You may be at someone’s house and they put out some sweets and you’re going to just have to eat them. Because what’s the point of enjoying time with friends If you can enjoy the food as well. But outside of that, if you plan your meals accordingly you won’t be eating haphazardly. You’ll be on a better routine and you won’t go off track. So when you’re not partying with friends this holiday season, plan your meals out so you don’t feel bad about when you have a little cheat here and there
One of the most important things that you can do is forgive yourself this holiday season. You’re only human. You can’t be a robot when the time comes. You just want to enjoy yourself and live life. You’re going to try your best and that’s all that matters. So at the end of the day if you do eat too many cookies, don’t beat yourself up about it, and forgive yourself instead.
