Ask yourself: do you really want to come home with all your hard work undone? A few simple and smart choices can make all the difference:
- Plan ahead
- Find a healthy balance. The golden rule!
- Do your workout early in the day
- Drink a lot of water
- Remember food swaps
- No skipping meals
- Practice assertiveness skills so you can refuse foods or activities without feeling guilty or hurting others’ feelings
- Visualise yourself eating healthily prior to the holiday
