Healthy Holidays Chart



I posted on Instagram a few days ago how I plan to stay healthy during the holidays.  In year's past, I have just not even thought twice about the extra cookies and deserts that seem to come out of nowhere during this time of year.  My favorite holiday is Halloween and probably because I love candy! However, last year was my first year really getting serious about my weight and controlling my cravings.  I was able to lose weight during the holiday season instead of gain...it's possible!!

This year I want to get ahead of schedule and plan out how I will stay strong during this holiday season.  As much as I wish I could just say that I will be good and not indulge (too much), I know myself well enough that it won't happen.  That's why I created this chart to keep me motivated and accountable.  For some reason checking off a box each day telling myself that I completed my goal is very satisfying and just works for me.

I have done this in the past and have been very successful, not perfect but pretty close.  The days where there is a heart means that's a free for all day and I won't have any restrictions on my diet or exercise. I made sure those were days were holidays, birthdays and vacations.  Then I placed a few more hearts throughout just to keep myself sane.

I created a free download for you all to help you stay on track with your goals.  I want everyone to commit to a healthy lifestyle during a really tempting part of the year.  I think that everyone should indulge, just not everyday and you will stay be able to lose weight.

  9. Wanted to stop by and thank you for this brilliant idea. I always struggle through the holidays to not over indulge or just throw in the healthy towel. This is such a great way to plan out this time of year and every month, really. I love knowing that I have a planned free day coming up. It keeps me motivated to do well on all the other days. I've been doing it since October and have lost 9 lbs of lingering baby weight. Thank you for such a useful tool!!
