With the festive season nearly upon us, we thought we would share some all important tips on how to stay on track. It is so easy to get caught up in all the social events and naughty treats – over indulgence is very common over the holiday season! But with a few handy tips from our friend, Trainer and Fitness Guru Sophie Guidolin from THE BOD, hopefully you can plan and prepare to still enjoy yourself but not feel guilty!
Sophies top tips to stay on track:
During the festive season, stick with the 80/20 rule.This follows on from my belief that consistency truly is the key.If you are making the right choices the majority of the time, this allows you to live a balanced lifestyle and enjoy treats in moderation.
Eat before you go to events. This will stop you from snacking the entire time, and ensure you’re getting the right nutrition your body deserves. It will also help with those cravings!
Get a workout in wherever you can – even if that means make-shifting your carry on suitcase into a weight! (for those on holidays)
Don’t be hesitant to break a sweat if you can’t get a full session in. Even 15 minutes is better than nothing.
Take the stairs, not the elevator
Avoid binge drinking
Prepare ahead!! Always ensure you have a stocked fridge with healthy meals ready to go!
