I know. Right? Where did the extra weight come from? Well, it might have been from all those candy and cookie food gifts that you said you didn’t want but got anyway. Chances are they may still be lying on a table somewhere. If it’s next to you while you are watching tv, it WILL call out to you after dinner for sure!
Time for New Year’s Resolutions? A resolution is a firm decision to do something. How about a New Year’s Intention? An intention is more of a plan. It might be easier. Decide on only ONE thing to change. Cut out regular soda. Stop eating French fries. No fried food. One adult beverage, not two on weekends. Pick one. These are relatively easy choices. Stick with it. Eating 100 calories less a day will help you lose ten pounds in a year. If you need help, The Food Is My Friend Diet has all the answers. Let’s get started today! I will be here, if you need me.
The holidays are coming to a close. Oops. There may have been more parties than you thought. Even if you were trying to be careful, the goodies were glorious. And the food gifts! Wow. Trying each type of chocolate seemed like a good idea at the time.
If your clothes feel a little tighter and uncomfortable, don’t wait til January to take action. My number one tip is to get moving. Make every effort to go to the gym or get outside to walk or shovel snow. Set a goal to get 30-60 minutes of physical activity a day. No excuses. Physical activity is the best way to burn calories. 1-2 extra pounds every holiday season adds up over the years. Lose the extra weight ASAP.
Most likely, there may be some more holiday calories consumed in the next week or two, but increasing the physical activity will reduce the damage. Get back on track to your usual eating habits ASAP. Start the new year feeling and looking great.
