The holidays are knocking on the door! In other words, there will be a lot of occasions for eating and twice more opportunities to make excuses and cheat on your workouts and your nutrition!

People pay too much attention to what they are gonna eat in the week between Christmas and New Year, and in reality what they should pay more attention to is what they eat in the period between New Year and Christmas… if you get what I mean!

Fortunately with every passing year, I am surrounded by more soulmates-people, who have the same understanding as mine, when it comes to nutrition, working out and living life. We have accepted healthy eating as a lifestyle, and not as a magical formula with a deadline. For me it doesn’t matter if today is Christmas, Easter, my birthday or just another Tuesday. I will still have eggs and veggies or a pork steak and broccoli for lunch!

For the past week, I’ve been receiving a lot of strange questions from people- if I could INVENT something, that will help them stay in shape during the holidays, if we keep in mind that they won’t have time to work out, but they intend on eating a lot!

Tell you the truth, I don’t consider myself to be stupid, but I still haven’t become smart enough to INVENT such things! The sentence above, sounds to me like this- “I will sit all day long, I will eat whatever I want, and I’d like somebody else to work out instead of me, eat clean, and then I want to get the results for myself!”

No matter how much you fool yourself, no matter how many magical formulas and strategies people offer you, for stuffing yourself during the holidays and still staying in shape, this is just dust in your eyes! Think about it! If you ate like this all year round and you didn’t work out, do you really think that you could stay in shape? I doubt it! Then, what makes you think that this is gonna happen during the holidays?

It is true that a lot of people have faith in the Christmas magic, but even it is helpless when it comes to being lazy, making excuses and staying in your comfort zone!

People pay too much attention to what they are gonna eat in the week between Christmas and New Year, and in reality what they should pay more attention to is what they eat in the period between New Year and Christmas… if you get what I mean!

After all, the first one lasts just 7 days… and the other one is all the rest days in the year!

I won’t bother you with my explanations, how holidays aren’t an occasion to stuff yourself with food, as if you are not gonna be able to eat until next Christmas! I already did this HERE!

Тoday I will just remind you that for the past year, you gave your best, to get to where you are now! You worked so hard, you changed your nutrition habits for the good and you probably already notice, how good it is to feel awesome in your own ski! For the past year, you’ve been ignoring your excuses, your laziness and the devil inside of you, who was constantly trying to make you quit and take it easier… but you knew what you want and you didn’t give in to the momentum temptations and the desire to stay in your comfort zone!

For the past year, you left the comfort zones of mediocrity, and jumped on the other side to chase your greatness!

And now you are trying to tell me that you will throw to waste everything you achieved?

Are you trying to tell me that you will neglect your new habits, you will voluntary give away the great feeling of health and energy, and just stay inside, seated on a chair, around a table full of food, and vegetate?

Are you trying to tell me, that you are gonna spend the week before Christmas, convincing yourself that it is the holiday season and you deserve it to give in to eating and slacking?

Fool yourself as much as you want, but deep inside you know that’s wrong!

You know that holidays are an occasion for more happiness, for being thankful and enjoying some nice moments! And deep inside, you know that food can’t be the way to express all of this! You know that if you have the same approach, as you did last year, once again your most vivid memory about the holiday will be how you overate and how bad you felt! Well, is that what you want to remember? Is that how you want to remember the moments, when you were supposed to feel the best?

Personally, I refuse to go back to this! I will eat clean during the holidays, because food will be just my fuel… and when it comes to being thankful, happy and enjoying the moments with my family, I consider to achieve it with activities, that will give more meaning to my days and my moments! I will spend my time, doing things I love with people I adore, so I can create good memories that last.

I will feed my soul with experiences, not stuff my body with food!

And when it comes to working out… ah, for me physical activity is a holiday itself! For me being able to move is the opportunity to have a small celebration every day, to feel better and satisfied; to get to know the limitless potential of my physical abilities.

Then why would I use the holidays as an excuse to slack and eat junk for a week? After all a workout takes about an hour of my day. Even if you do not feel like working out, don’t stay inside- go for a walk, for a hike. It doesn’t matter as long as you use your body for what it was created-movement!

Enjoy the holidays and remember that when the soul is starving, the body is overeating!

If you feel like indulging in food, ask yourself, not “what else could I put in my plate, that will satisfy my hunger?”, but “what should I do in order to feed my soul and satisfy my emotions?”.
