• Be vigilant about sticking with your regular routine; eating a healthy breakfast, drinking plenty of water, getting a good night sleep and doing some type of physical activity every day. Keep yourself accountable by keeping a daily record.
• Give yourself permission to enjoy the foods of the holiday season, but do it in moderation. It is okay to eat and savor a few bits of your favorite treats, but realize you don’t need to eat the whole portion. Also, look for ways that you can treat yourself that doesn’t include food, such as a class of yoga, walking or enjoying looking at Christmas decorations and lights. The rewards are great and you will begin the New Year on track rather than having to get back on track.
