Tis the season

Fa la la la la. Days are shorter. Viruses 🦠 are lurking. Workout timing gets tougher. Portion control of party yummies and daily feats make it harder to stick with an 80-20% guideline for diet.

Are you jolly?  I hope so, despite these HoHoNo challenges to your wellness and fitness.

My own approach?

1 Establish a gameplan, then stick to it(most days)

2  Skip the guilt if you go off the reservation for an extra cookie or miss one cardio workout

3 Check your Vitamin D3 intake and consider a D3 supplement (see bestreviews.com)

4  Enjoy mineral baths (epsom salts) or saunas to naturally detox and shed a few calories

5  Stress not- Uncle Jon and “that” unique relative will head home soon

6 Do quick deep core and whole body routines before parties and big meals

7  It’s okay to say no to extras

8 Monitor your resting heart rate – if it is “ high” of 10-12 beats per minute  on a given Holi-day, you are likely dehydrated, over-trained or have a cold lurking

9 Hydrate (as in lots of lemon 🍋 water- not wassails)  Even when the weather outside is frightful- you need 80 ounces a day

10 💤 7 restful hours!

Be well,
