Day 2: Keep Each Celebration to One Day

Go ahead and indulge your cravings. Take a break from working out. But return to your normal diet and exercise program the next morning. A review in the British Journal of Sports Medicine found that the longer it takes you to re-focus on fitness, the more your enthusiasm for it will dim, and the harder it will be for you to get back on track. In short, a day off won’t hurt you, but a week or two off can derail your progress toward your goals. It can also inflate your waist size, according to a study in the Journal of Applied Physiology. The researchers found that just two weeks of inactivity can increase belly fat by seven percent.

    This will be a hard one for me! We are going to CA to see my family and we haven’t been in two years so I’ll be seeing lots of friends too! Always over food of course…sigh. Trying to plan as much “exercise” meet ups as I can too though so it isn’t all about food!
