If you’ve been following my Hammer & Chisel journey you may have noticed that week 3 kicked off with SEVERAL planned meals out – I mean its the holidays – tis the season right?!?!
Of course – but that doesn’t mean you can’t make some progress along the way too!!!
We have had some holiday celebrations, my dad’s birthday dinner and just some time out with friends and family! But here’s the deal – I do believe you can have your cake and eat it too!
Each day I’ve been “picking my splurge” whether its the meal or dessert I pick one and do my best on the other options. I have found making that healthier choice doesn’t leave me feeling deprived but rather proud that I am doing something to better myself!
We even had a day date christmas shopping trip in the mix and at the suggestion of my hubs we packed all our meals – yup – snack 1, lunch and snack 2. Mancake bake, grilled asparagus and salmon burgers, some fruit, shakeo and plenty to drink! Hydration is key!!!
And in between running from place to place we would sneak in those meals, fuel up and get on our way! I tend to get HANGRY while shopping and often don’t want to take the time out to eat when I’m on a mission and this made it work out for everyone involved!!!
My sis came to visit which gave me that much more of a REASON – not an EXCUSE to stay on track – we simply made it something we would do TOGETHER! Family fitness is just one of the many things that fills my cup — I think she’s hooked for sure!
The holiday season is tough – don’t get me wrong. And the temptations are everywhere but not impossible to survive by any means!!!
Here are my top HOLIDAY tips!
