Staying On Track During the Holiday Season
Welcome to Week 10 of What’s for Dinner menu planning and reminding myself to stay on track during the holiday season! I can’t be alone in thinking what happened to November? December is here and it’s a wonderfully crazy-busy time of year in the Conyers’ home. We celebrate 2 birthdays, my daughter’s competitive cheer season is in full swing and my son’s robotics team is gearing up for the build season which translates into more team meetings throughout the week. Oh and of course we have the holidays and house guests to add to the mix. I promise, there is a point to all of this rambling.
I’m reminding myself that to stay on track during the holiday season [and avoid derailing my efforts of the previous 11 months of the year] it’s important to have a menu plan that:
- Is realistic [and without the expectation of perfection] with traveling, holiday celebrations and social commitments,
- allows you to enjoy time with family and friends,
- allows for indulgence but not overly so,
- stress free,
- and guilt free.
As I write this post I’m also reminding myself the same little reminder also holds true for workout plans:
Monday: P90X, Newton Running transition run and form drills
Tuesday: Run, Ab Ripper, Newton running transition strength drills
Wednesday: Les Mills Pump, Run including Newton transition run and form drills
Thursday: Run, Ab Ripper, Newton transition strength drills
Friday: P90X, Newton Running transition run and form drills
Saturday: Run, Ab Ripper
Sunday: Run, Yoga
What reminders are you giving yourself to stay on the health and fitness track during the holiday season? What’s on your menu plan and workout schedule that is doable and will keep you on track?
