weightloss tips How to get through Christmas and still lose weight



Providing you follow a few simple rules over Christmas, your weight loss can continue.

I don’t want you to miss out, so just stick to a healthy way of eating most of the time and then there will be room for a few Christmas treats too.

It is Christmas after all and with parties and plenty of mince pies around it would be a shame to say no all the time.

You can however moderate things slightly to get the effect that you want and here are a few tips.

How do you want to feel after Christmas?

The first thing to do is to ask yourself some honest questions before you throw caution to the wind and begin binge eating on Christmas food.

How do I want to feel? What do I want to see? What do I want to hear?

By that I mean:

Scenario 1

Do you want to feel like a bloated piggy at the New Year’s party, too uncomfortable to enjoy yourself and not feeling sexy at all? We have all been there, well I have at least!!

You know what to do if that’s how you want to feel ;-)

Scenario 2

Do you want to stay up past midnight engaging with everyone around you, looking and feeling gorgeous!!!

Proud and pleased with yourself for having lost another two pounds over the Christmas period. Feeling super sexy in your beautiful dress everyone is complementing you on?

I know which scenario I would rather be in!!

Make your goal personal and vivid to you. Make the picture bright and big, be in that picture and see it all through your eyes and really feel it and hear the compliments.

It doesn’t have to be this scenario. Be creative!! It’s your mind and it's whatever will get you motivated to make the right choices.

Start each morning by thinking about your goal with your eyes closed for 5 minutes.

This will prime your subconscious mind for success.

Booze

When you go out always order a small glass of wine if ordering by the glass.

Whenever you finish with a glass, decide to have a glass of water before you have another glass.

This will slow you down a little and allow for more time between each glass and therefore less time to consume more calories.

Every time you order a glass of wine or start a new one, spare a thought for tomorrow.

How do you want to feel the next day? Ask yourself if spending a whole day in bed feeling horrible is worth it!! It may be, but more often than not people find it is not!

Food

When eating big meals, fill your plate with vegetables and have some meat too (unless you are a vegetarian of course).

Add only a small amount of potatoes and bread and avoid them if possible.

Eat all the vegetables first, then move on to the meat.

Eat slowly, enjoying each bite, putting your knife and fork down between bites.

Stop eating when you feel full and do not let yourself get to the ‘extremely full’ place. 

You want to enjoy the company you are in and not start yawning, because your body is now busy digesting way too much food. Eating too much can make you feel very tired.

Get into the habit of having half of something. Half a mince pie, half a piece of cake. Often a little corner of something is enough to stop you wanting more.

Remember you don’t have to eat everything on the plate!

Cut up a few carrots, peppers, broccoli and keep them in the fridge for a healthy snack.

I know that I am often left with lots of cheese after Christmas. I wrap it up and give it to guests to take home, so they can eat it between Christmas and New Year’s.

That way it doesn’t end up on my hips and tummy. Same goes for Christmas cake and mince pies.

Exercise

If you get some time off over Christmas go walking every day.

Going for a walk with friends and family is much nicer that sitting in front of the television.

It may also be used as an opportunity to escape the family if that’s what you really want!!

Imagine a one hour walk away from it all. Sometimes that can be a real treat!

Have a fabulous Christmas,

Much Love,

Kristine
