Nourish your body to have more energy and enjoyment of this Holiday season!
My sister and I were talking about how to make this Holiday Survival Guide Nutrition edition short and sweet, but applicable to our lives RIGHT NOW, amid the hustle, bustle, wrapping, and eating.
I’m still working off the rest of my baby weight (yes, he’s 17 months now), so one of my goals this December was to not put any weight back on. This no longer feels like a drag, but a positive challenge to see where I can be my healthiest.
This time of year makes it extra difficult because I LOVE FOOD and healthy, homemade treats, so I have to be extra careful to be intentional with my choices during a season that seems to revolve around food. BUT, the season doesn’t revolve around food or family, or even children, as many believe. Sure, we can make Christmas whatever we want, but historically, Christmas is the celebration of the life of one person, Jesus. When Jesus is my focus, my priorities line up and it gets a little easier to remain peaceful amidst the fullness of the season. I still very much enjoy the food, family, friends, and snowy days, but I can do all that with priorities in place.
The result of making good choices affects EVERYTHING and everyone around me. When I eat better, my mood is better, I’m physically healthier, and most notably, I have more energy, yes, even with a 17-month-old baby who STILL doesn’t sleep all through the night.
Let me share with you some Survival Guide strategies to help you to feel your best as this holiday season ends as we welcome in the New Year.Read More
