I am now comfortably in my 3rd month on the Nutrisystem program, doesn’t it seem like yesterday when I first announced that I was beginning this journey? Time certain does fly by when you are eating delicious food! When I first began, I knew that I would be given 3 months worth of food to be a part of the program. I also realized, this 3 months will include part of the holidays and I started to freak out a bit. The holidays are my FAVORITE time of year but also the time of year when the weight starts to pile on. Am I going to be able to LOSE weight at this time? So, I sat down, gathered my thoughts and put together some tips on losing weight over the holidays.
5 Tips for Losing Weight Over the Holidays
Indulge: I know that might seem a little counterproductive but the more you deprive yourself during the holidays the more likely you will binge. So, I am allowing myself two days, yup I said TWO days, to indulge. Now, that does not mean I am going to get all crazy and eat from a nonstop fatty buffet for two days but I am going to allow myself to eat things I enjoy without feeling guilty about it!
Make Healthier Dishes: This is something I have always been a proponent of. This Thanksgiving I scoured the internet and Pinterest and found many, MANY traditional recipes that I love made in a much healthier way. And let me tell you, they tasted great if not better than the fattier version!
Mix In Your Nutrisystem Food: Thanksgiving Day does not have to be filled with huge breakfasts, lunches and dinners. Thankgiving morning, I actually had a Nutrisystem omelet for breakfast and during the day I satisfied my cravings with a Nutrisystem snack.
Go Shopping: What a great excuse to go shopping!!! Nix the online shopping for actually slipping into your tennis shoes and hitting the malls. You wouldn’t believe the calories I burned during Black Friday! And if your significant other complains about the credit card bill, just tell them it was an investment in your health!
Get Your Z’s: Even if you keep your food and exercise in check, not getting at least 7-8 hours of sleep a day can have adverse effects to your weight loss. So make sure you take care of yourself through this holiday season because a happier body will produce a happier YOU!
I Survived Thanksgiving! By sticking to my tips, I actually lost TWO pounds. Unbelievable! Once again, thank you Nutrisystem for providing me with the tools for success!
