How to Avoid Holiday Weight Gain

 

Holiday weight gain is a thing.  For many of us, it can be THE THING that starts stressing us out as summer is coming to a close. 

Simply because the holidays pop up in our daily lives now in September with Halloween on full display. 

In this video, I share with you my simple tips to help you avoid the dreaded Holiday Weight Gain.

If this is the season that you have decided you are not going to gain weight, then simply don't gain weight.

  • put the things in place to make sure that does not happen. Fast long. Feast well. Train smart. 

Or

  • Decide that the holiday season is JUST the season that you allow yourself to gain a little weight. 
  • stop kidding yourself and allow yourself the opportunity to enjoy what the holidays mean to you. And if that means loosening things up with your fasting and feasting, then give yourself that time. 

How to put things in place to help you reach your own personal holiday goals with weight.

  • Make sure your brain is clear...

Are You ON and OFF with your Fasting?

 

Consistency over Time with our Intermittent Fasting is how we create a lifestyle that will stand the test of time and help use Age Successfully.

How we speak to ourselves about our decisions matters. On and Off again is just another way of saying Starting over and Quitting. This can be very confusing for our brains. Let's break it down in today's Community Conversation. I will also offer you a better phrase to use to help you stay in the game.

The science is there to prove to us that Intermittent Fasting just makes sense as a means to balance out our hormones and reverse the signs of aging. We have a track record of success with the women who are ebbing and flowing their way through this intermittent fasting lifestyle.  So why are there still women who are ON and OFF with intermittent fasting?

I believe it is a MindSet issue.  There is no emotional buy-in when we are treating Intermittent Fasting as a diet and not approaching it like a lifestyle. 

When you are OFF:

February's Focus: What I am focusing on!

Some things I am focusing on this month that I thought I would share with you.

Book of the Month  - BadAss Habits by: Jen Sinero

I have read a few of her other books and LOVED them.  I am all about creating healthy habits that stick. So reading another book about habits just makes sense for me. I will keep you posted via Instagram about this book and share my big takeaways with you over there.

Break Fast Shake: Still doing what I have always been doing.  My go-to break-fast shake.  This month I am focusing on simplicity.  No fancy-schmancy this month. I am skipping the Coco Whip cream and nuts on the top and just enjoying all the dense nutrition already packed into my superfood shake. If you would like to find out more you can watch this video about how I make my Break Fast Shake:

Intermittent Fasting: Are You Changing Too Much Too Soon? | For Today’s Aging Woman

 

On this week's LIVE we discussed changing too much too soon when it comes to your fasting, feasting, and fitness. You know when we are listening to too many experts all at the same time. 

Most of the time we go into something new with all the right intentions. However, the reality can be quite different. Starting a new Intermittent Fasting Lifestyle can have you feeling like you need to do it all at once. 

When I started my journey 4 years ago, I tried to create an Intermittent Lifestyle while I was chasing all the experts too, and ended up changing what I was doing daily. This was a huge mistake. I was exhausted and frustrated.  When I realized I wasn't getting the results that I was looking for, I regrouped and just focused on fasting long and feasting well until I found my groove.  I even put off working out for an entire year until I knew I had the fasting and feasting part down.  That entire year of learning is now our 3 week Intermittent Fasting...
