Christmas has come and gone again. The time period where everyone seems to gorge on food is over. Its 2016 and it’s now time to make some changes! Do you feel like you have gained a bit during the break? Well, then here are some tips about how to go about losing the holiday weight:
- Stay positive
Having a positive attitude is just as important as anything else. If you stay positive you will achieve positive results! If you talk yourself down and surround yourself with negativity, it won’t be long until you don’t feel like exercising or improving your health!
- Change your mindset
Your mindset can affect how well you go with improving your lifestyle. You have to realise you have plenty of time to exercise and that eating healthy isn’t as hard as you think. You are only limited by the invisible barriers which your mind creates!
- Replace the unhealthy snacks
Snacking around Christmas is one of the easiest ways to gain those few extra kilos. Not saying completely cut out the snacks, just replace them with healthier ones. Snacks like nuts, fruit, yoghurt or even vegetable sticks. If you struggle to get rid of the sugary snacks, wean yourself off them. Have less and less each week and save them only for special occasions!
- Build a routine
Building a routine is the best way to lose the holiday weight. Add exercise into your daily routine, allow time for cooking and planning meals. Once you put this in your routine, if you keep it up it will become like second nature! You won’t even think twice before exercising or eating healthy!
