It's a funny time of year xmas
I love it and it's always great to meet up and do a bit more eating and drinking than any other week
But then what goes up must come down and unfortunately some people can come down very hard post xmas
and suicides rates are apparently at their highest around Xmas and January
so of course it's not just as simple as letting everything go and enjoying it
I can only speak for myself on this and everyone has their own way
But there's over indulging and enjoying yourself for a few days
and there's taking the piss and then having a massive downer after it
So here's what I do to try and avoid that massive downer which may or may not work for you
But at least 1 idea might help
Just admit to yourself that an extra pound or 2 might go on over a few days and realise it will come back off handy enough when you get back at it the following week
A week off isn't going to be the end of the world
It's the lack of energy and general crap feeling that get's me down as I don't pass much remarks on my weight
But once you accept that after a week you will be back to normal then it's just a matter of grinding through those first few days
Get Protein in early in the day
Keep the brekkie solid with Protein oats or eggs and then you should be set up ok for the day
Fill up on meat and veg on the meals so at least you have that covered and enjoy the deserts etc around that
even just get odd for the odd walk here and there and some stretching.
I'll probably get to the pool a few times for a light bit
But no point going beast mode as that probably do more harm than good after late nights and poor diet choices
Of water I mean.
Again, do this early before going on the lash in the evening so at least you are hydrated and the water will help flush things out of the system
But like I said,
These are helpful little tips to do here and there over Xmas week and really any sort of holiday week
It's getting that balance of enjoying things without feeling like a total sack of shite for a period of time after
Especially when some people really struggle with the down period after and can make tragic decisions
just my 2 cents
And don't forget,
