We have about 7 weeks until we celebrate another new year. A new, squeaky-clean year to become the best you YOU can be!
The average American gains 7lbs between October and January (think Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years events... and food).
This year, let's do things differently. Instead of gaining 7lbs this season, lets lose 7lbs together!! (Or maintain if you’re at a healthy weight already).
Each week, I will post a couple tips to keep you (or get you) in the best shape of your life- during all the big holidays!! I would love for us to make this a dialogue. Submit your reply and let me know what works for you, what doesn't, what your goals are... etc. Your inspirational ideas and stories may also inspire the other Patch readers to make healthy changes this season!
Statistics show that if we can be in a fitness journey together, we are more likely to achieve our goals and beyond!
Here is my first healthy tip; remember, you can do it!!
Make the Mental Connection
When it comes to fitness and food choices, many factors can influence your attitude and behavior. Pay attention to your emotions to understand your behavioral patterns. Keeping a mood-food journal will help you identify your personal triggers for overeating, as well as situations that leave you particularly vulnerable. The more you know, the less your waistline will grow!
