Yesterday I told you about my goal which is to maintain not gain over the holidays. But as you may know, a goal without a plan is just a wish. So here is my plan. Putting it out here helps me with accountability and support.
👊🏻 This may go without saying, but I’m continuing to follow my nutrition plan, or as I like to simply refer to it now as my way of life. It’s simple, no nonsense and it works beautifully. It gives me a sense of well-being and just plain makes me feel good to eat this way! It allows me to enjoy treats and is not restrictive, which is a must for me, especially with all the holiday goodies! 🥧🍰🥂
👊🏻 The holiday season is stressful, almost as much as it is joyous. The last thing I need is to be stressed about my workouts. They are just 4 times a week, only 30 to 45 minutes. The main focus of these workouts is lifting weights, which builds muscle. Muscle makes for a more shapely figure and more calorie burn when I’m not working out!🔥🔥🔥
👊🏻 On my choice (or off) days, I will stretch, rest, do some cardio, or whatever I want. This gives me some wiggle room if I miss a lifting workout because of my busy schedule.
So there’s my plan not to undo what I’ve done all year, to enjoy the season, and start 2019 ahead of the game!
