Coping with Christmas
December is a bitch! Almost every day someone is trying to make you eat something you don’t really want. Some gyms have limited access around Xmas and New Year. It’s dark at lunchtime, and the weather isn’t conducive to getting a sweat on outdoors. There are so many excuses to write off an entire month fitness-wise.
Remember, Christmas is just a day. One single day. And if you’re reading this, the chances are you’ve already made a commitment to yourself to treat your body well. Think about how you feel when you’ve overindulged. Think about how you feel when you’ve just trained. Stick to your plans.
Go nuts on Christmas day: Chocolate for breakfast? Don’t mind if I do. Pissed by lunchtime? Absolutely! 12,000 calorie lunch? Be rude not to. Watch TV all day? If that’s your thing.
Boxing day. Business as usual. Not putting on 6lbs in four weeks is the best gift you can give yourself (next to an iPad).
