3 Key Points:
Just because it is the holidays does NOT mean you can’t adjust your fitness and nutrition during this time to fit your schedule. It is not all or nothing (or start again in Jan mentality!). Have a plan of attack that you can actually commit too and you will!
Create a Healthy Holiday Toolbox for at home or on the road. These are the simple habits you will stick too no matter what and also the elements/ equipment you need to make it easy to stick to.
Be present and enjoy life! This time is about celebrating life, love, family, friends and more. It does not need to be a food coma / booze fest every day. So focus on spending time with your peeps (and try to move while doing it!) and create amazing healthy memories.
