LUCINDA’S HOLIDAY TIPS!

Happy Way Super Reds

If one of your focuses for 2021 and the new year is weight loss, be sure to set realistic goals this holiday season and remember to be kind to yourself. Although we can all overdo it at Christmas, it is a time for enjoying good food with your loved ones—and why should we skip out on that?! But, instead of cutting out any of those delicious Christmas Day dishes, just be mindful of portion sizes and avoid piling up your plate with a mountain of food! We can still enjoy a good Christmas Day feast, without all the guilt that follows.

LUCINDA’S 10 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS

Day 1 = 1 session of movement
Day 2 = 2 hours of no blue light before bed
Day 3 = 3 wholesome, nutrient-filled meals
