The Holidays are Tough


I will be the first to admit that the holidays are a very tough time for those of us that are on the path of health and fitness.  I myself have done well on my workouts, but trying to eat healthy when you are surrounded by the American Holiday Diet (AHD) is a mighty big challenge for anyone.

I have for the past couple years allowed Thanksgiving Day and the Christmas meals to be what people call a “cheat day”.  On those days I just go ahead and eat what I want with the comfort of knowing that I have eaten healthy all the other days before and will eat healthy after this one day.  However this year for some reason I am finding myself having more fattening and less healthy meals in between the two big days.

It is amazing to me how our busy lives and all of our obligations put us in a position to not preplan meals and take the time to make healthy meals.  If you are in a rush and did not preplan then you will have plenty of choices for unhealthy junk food, but very few if any choices for quick, accessible, healthy meals.

I mention this to let you know that we all have to work at eating healthy and that we all at times end up falling short of doing that.  So what is the answer?  Of course I just get back into the groove of eating right, I have done it many many times before so I know how to do it and quit with the excuses and make sure I am taking care of my health.   We all have to rededicate ourselves from time to time and this is one of those times for me.

Take care and have a wonderful Christmas, keep up the workouts and eating right and we all will feel better and be ahead of the game in January!
