Do you have a survival plan for the holiday season?
Well... let me rephrase...
Does the thought of Halloween, Thanksgiving, Channukah, Xmas, New Years, etc. make you want to hibernate until it's all over? Is all of their associated foods cause for anxiety and worry? Do you feel the onset of the food coma and winter lethargy? Do you think you will be able to get through the holiday season staying on the course you have laid out for yourself?
If you have something meaningful to say on this topic, send me an email with your contact information for me to pass on to Rebecca and Bernie of the Nurture Principles (@ScritchfieldRD and @BernieSalazar on Twitter). They have something very special in the works for November/December to help you get through the end of the year so you start 2011 feeling triumphant, not overwhelmed.
I don't really have anything MEANINGFUL to say, but I am worried about the holidays. I was a slacker over the summer and have just in the last month really gotten my groove back with working out and eating right. I don't want to get back on track just to be derailed by the holidays. So I am determined to make it through this year in good form, and not be "starting over" again at the new year. I don't have much of a survival plan, so I'll be interested to see what they come up with :)Reply
A plan? I just started thinking about this yesterday and I'm scared sh*tless. I've put in a lot of hard work this year, and I need a plan to get through the holidays so that I don't face January with regrets and MORE work to do.Reply
Yeah, I have some meaningful input, but I need to think about it some more before I start writing. I'll send you my email for passing along in a bit...
I think staying focused is my main survival plan. Realizing that I may eat something out of the usual but that it isn't the end of the world. I just have to account for it and remember to not fall completely off the wagon. Exercise will keep me grounded and the trainer will bust my butt if I ask for it! Wrap all that up into my survival plan!Reply
I can't wait to read more about this. For me, you can add in about 6 family birthday get-togethers (including mine!) to the mix as well. Oh...and about 15 days of travel for work as well. I'm seriously starting to dread Nov/Dec!!Reply
My loves (i.e. everyone who has responded):Reply
Rebecca and Bernie's plan will help you stay focused on the task at hand rather than letting you slip back into old habits of "oh, it only happens once a year" or "I can undo this in january."
I'm really excited with what they've shared with me already and I'd love to share it with you all as well.
Should be interesting! For me the key to survival is host(ess)ing as many of the get-togethers as I can. I'm more in control of the food AND so busy that I don't have the time/energy to overindulge :)Reply
My biggest problem is alcohol. I have to celebrate a different way.Reply
