Labor Day weekend is almost upon us, which means picnics, bar-b-ques, and outdoor gathering with friends and family. For someone who is trying to lose weight and establish optimal health, holidays are a mix of good times and great challenges. It’s all-too-easy to skip a workout and make exceptions for overeating or indulging in sweets and drinks.
You don’t have to avoid holiday celebrations to have success. Every challenge is surmountable, and you can keep your momentum and gain confidence in knowing that you are fully capable of losing weight even when you’ve struggled in the past.
5 Ways to Survive Labor Day and Still Lose Weight
Decide What You Want
It’s essential to go into any celebration with a clear decision about what you want most. Then, when you encounter an impulse or a temptation, you can take a deep breath and remind yourself that you want your health and weight loss goals the most.
Visualize Your Choices
Take time before you arrive to visualize the choices you may need to make. Uncle Bob probably grills the same meats every year, and the picnic wouldn’t be the same without Aunt Betty’s bake mac-n-cheese and chocolate cake. Usually, holiday gatherings are predictable. So, take time before you go to see yourself making the choices that fit within your eating plan.
Count to Five
Once you’re at the gathering, count to five before you reach for any food or beverages. That slight pause will allow space for mindfulness and create just enough distance between yourself and the temptation. The 5-second count is something that is a good practice for any situation.
Go for the People
You don’t have to eat or drink at your Labor Day party to have a good time. People are the best part of the event. (And if you don’t think they are, then maybe this isn’t the best party to attend.) You can eat before you go to the gathering or when you get home. While you’re there, smile a lot and enjoy some great conversations. In the grand scheme of life, the holidays aren’t about food and drink.
Remember the Fat Burn Benefits
