So, with the holidays here are just some important reminders to keep you focused on your goals: 

 

  • Moderation is key and remember to enjoy your holiday meals, focusing on portion size and eat mindfully.

 

  • Remember to fill half that plate with vegetables and fruits, a quarter size of the plate should be filled with protein (25%) and a quarter size of whole grains (25%).

 

  • If you opt for a desert, try to stick to one serving. The key is not to overindulge!

 

  • Water, water, water- try to get in 8 glasses per day.

 

  • Don’t forget to get that activity in throughout the break for at least 30 minutes a day for 6 days a week. Engage in something that you enjoy- whether it be walking, jogging, dancing, yoga, kickboxing, strength training or whatever it is you choose, just do it!
