Holiday eating is insane.
It really is a non stop eating craze that begins on Thanksgiving and ends squarely on December 31st. Right before all the resolutions come pouring in from everywhere, vowing to lose those 20, 30 even 40 pounds in exactly 10 days.
For those of us that work in an office setting, the food is simply overwhelming. It’s been exactly a week into December and there have been 2 pies and a cake in the lunchroom for general consumption. We have clients that send over chocolate, and every kind of treat you can imagine.
I personally have been totally guilty of falling for this holiday food craze. Last year I made 6 (SIX) different kinds of cookies just to see if I could do it. It was a crazy challenge imposed as a test of my baking skills. I brought all of them to work to share but not before leaving a stash for myself at home! No bueno!
United Health care has an awesome campaign called “We Dare You” and it’s all about making healthy decisions not only now, but in general for your overall health.
I am personally taking this holiday as a dare to make healthy decisions by committing to
- Workout 5x a week
- Resist the urge to eat all the yummy office snacks
- Continue to log with MFP
- Bake healthy
- Remain vigilant on all food intake
United Healthcare is daring YOU to stay active and healthy this holiday season! You can share your photos on the We Dare You To Share website and show everyone how you are keeping fit in December!
Have you made any specific holiday goals you want to achieve? Do you accept the dare?
Last year I wrote about staying focused during the holiday season. It is not the easiest thing to do, but if there is anything we have control over it is our health.
How do you keep healthy habits during the holiday season? Are you extra vigilant or do you enjoy all the fun eats?
