If you look and/or feel like the the people in the bottom square now that Thanksgiving is over, it's time to take charge.
Thanksgiving is catalyst or jump-start for potential diet and fitness disaster. It's the time where your diet seems to disappear and your fitness routine begins to waver or cease altogether.
Have no fear! You're in the majority as most people fall victim to this time of the year, but that doesn't mean it's all over!
Increasing your awareness of your activity levels and your food intake will help to keep you on track during this holiday season.
One thing to always keep in mind that may keep you motivated is something my high school cross country coach used to tell our team:
"It's easier to keep up than it is to catch up."
Meaning the more you keep your weight and activity in check at normal levels, the easier it will be after the holiday season to get back on track. It will be much more difficult and frustrating if you just give up your activity and give in to the holiday season.
