Here’s how to prevent over-eating and over-spending:

Make a fitness budget.

  • Set your weight goals for the season – “hold the line” is a great one.
  • Don’t overeat now and deprive yourself after January 1.
  • Take your dog for a walking tour of your neighborhood decorations.

 Avoid the Black Friday hangover!

  • A little preparation makes Black Friday a lot less stressful. Scope out the bargains in advance so you know what you’re looking for.
  • Beware of impulse buying. Be selective, and purchase only what your friends and family really need.
  • Shop like an athlete. Make sure you’re well-rested, and wearing your shopping uniform – comfortable shoes and layered clothing. You can keep your energy up and avoid the food court when you eat a generous breakfast and pack healthy snacks like natural almonds, an apple, mozzarella sticks or Babybel cheese.
  • Stay hydrated. It’s easy to shop all day and forget to drink water. Bring a refillable water bottle with you

 Buy yourself some presents too.

  • Non-food rewards will help your motivation, like a soft, fuzzy hat and/or new gloves for your morning walk, new sneakers or resistance bands, or even ice skates!

 

Happy Holidays
