🎄 You don’t have to eat everything. Enjoy the smells. Enjoy the work everyone put into it and the thoughtful table settings. Sometimes that is enough.
🎅 Ask the host what is being served. Offer to bring something, make protein & veggies your focus and you will know for sure there will be something healthy to choose.
🎁 Sit away from the snack and buffet table.
🍷 Limit your alcohol.
🎄Don’t go hangry or “absolutely starving”. Have a snack before you go.
🎅Pace yourself and eat slow.
🎁 You can get chocolate chip cookies year-round, so why splurge on that? If grandma makes your favorite dessert once a year. Savor it. Eat what is special for the season to you.
👩🍳 Food is always going to be there. You don’t have to eat everything in one sitting.
🍷 Unless you’re in contest prep, it’s better for you and your mental state to maintain your weight and not focus on losing.

Coach’s Holiday Survival rant…
(cuz it’s true)
If you eat it. Own it. Nothing is more frustrating as a coach than to get the confession emails and want to know how to fix the damage. You can’t. Drink water and move on.
