Health Doesn't Take a Holiday
The holiday season can be a difficult time to stick to your proper training schedule if everyone in your social group doesn't completely understand and support your healthy lifestyle. Yes, the holidays are a wonderful time of the year, and there is no reason to beat yourself down if you slip up on your training or eating a little bit. But this is a time to really keep your "eyes on the ball." There are always going to be holidays. There are holidays pretty much every day if you look hard enough! Now is the time to push yourself to be the best that you can be and keep your goals prominent in your mind.
The difference between people who go on a diet and people who live a healthy lifestyle is just that: the LIFEstyle as opposed to just a fad. The healthy practices should influence every aspect of your life; in a positive way. A healthy lifestyle doesn't stop just because the end of the year is coming. Don't let yourself get out of your healthy habits and then tell yourself that you will start again at the beginning of the year. You know better. Keep yourself on track. A personal trainer can help you stay on track during the holidays because they are able to help push you harder on your workouts and maintain a healthy outlook! Partner up with your best friend to train together and keep each other on track. Most trainers run specials for partner training sessions. Friends that sweat together, stick together.
