The Holiday Hurdle
Why are the holidays such a stumbling block for all of us? So many of my athletes have diffuculty mainitining their healthy lifestyles during this time of year. I have always wondered why we feel the need to gorge on cookies, alcohol and processed foods during the only block of time when our level of activity is drastically decreased. I'm assuming much of it is simply cultural and habitual. I understand the social aspect of increased amount of parties and office dinners etc.... What can we do to limit the toll the holidays take on our body composition? But is it worth it to start the new year behind the eight ball training wise? Chime in on how you deal with the holidays? Is it a challenge for you too?
