Plan for managing a healthy holiday season.

Monday, November 24, 2014

Thanksgiving is done and I managed to cook healthy feast and even the apple pie was topped with fat free vanilla Greek yogurt and no one noticed.

For Christmas:
My main temptation is chocolates and those at work treats.

1: My plan is to say no to any food I did not pack (work Treats)
2: I have already declined going to university Xmas party on the account that most their entries have some dairy.
3: I will buy chocolate and give it away as gifts and no extras.
4: I will make sure that vegetable make up the bulk of all my meals.
5: Keep moving regardless of the weather (Indoor walking and cardio DVDS on storm freezing days).
6: Increase my ST at least to 2X a week
7: Do yoga especially in the evenings when I am tempted to snack.
8: Drink 8 glasses of water daily
9: Always remember that I cannot exercise away bad eating habits so stay in my calorie range 5 days.

My goal for this year was to be at my healthy weight by my birthday. Well it did not happen. I am still in the OW range. I am changing my focus for the next 31/2 months.
Instead of focusing on the weight, I am going to focus on accountability and consistency in both activity and nutrition.
1: I will keep a record of my food intake every day in a note book where I can see the entry every day.
2: I will devote at least 45 minutes of cardio-exercise 6 times a week
3: I will do 15 minutes of ST every other day.
4: I am going to learn to meditate.
5: I will accept that some days I may not achieve all I have planed for day and be flexible.

6: No excuses for over eating regardless whether I am on road or at home.

I tend to fall off the wagon in the evenings and weekends when I tend to reach for unhealthy snacks even when I am not hungry.
My goal for this challenge is:

How will I achieve this goal:

1:Track every bite, meal and taste
2: Drink 10 glass of 8 oz water/day
3: eat 8 servings of fruits (2-3) and vegetables (4-5).
4: Cut out mindless snacking especially in the evenings and weekends

5: Exercise a minimum of 30 minutes every day (5x cardio-exercise and 3X ST).
6: Stretch 10 minutes a day or have a me quite time.
7: Sleep 7 to 8 hours every day.

8: Rewards: I will financially reward myself for every day I stay in my calorie range and meet goals for my activity. ($ 1.00 for food and $1.00 for activity).
9: Get support from my team- mates and ask my family not to sabotage my effects.

    I notice that it says winter challenge. Does this mean the 5% goal is for the first day of spring? Good luck!
