It's easy to coast from Halloween through New Year's Day by telling yourself, it's a holiday, so I can do this. And you're right, you can. You can go through the holidays and remain healthy. It's fairly simple (not necessarily easy).
Set a goal for yourself. Not gain weight during the holidays, eat only one goodie at a holiday gathering, workout more frequently, get up off the couch during every commercial, try a new class or piece of fitness equipment. . . You pick based on what you want to accomplish.
Make a specific plan. If your goal is to not gain weight, join a weight maintenance challenge at work, your gym or health club, or online, or make one with some friends. If you need a little more structure try an app or online site for tracking your food intake.
Find an accountability partner. Have someone check up on you who will ask you how you're doing. This could be a friend, co-worker, family member, personal trainer, someone on your social media network.
You can have a Knockout November, and beyond by challenging yourself!
