Six Ways to Un-Sabotage Yourself This Month

Updated: Dec 12, 2021

It’s a special time of year, with celebrations, traditions, festivities, and parties...and cookies. But there are also some special challenges, too – all those sneaky saboteurs that go along with the holiday season. They can set you back in a BIG WAY from reaching your goals.

I put together a list of the 6 common pitfalls that can hurt our progress over the holidays, and when we are aware of them, it’s so much easier to avoid them.

Top 6 Ways to Sabotage Your Progress Over the Holidays:

1. Not eating all day before a party.

You may assume not eating or eating lightly all day when you know you’re going to indulge later would be the right approach. But it actually can backfire, leaving you to eat and drink even MORE than you expected because you are so hungry.

A better option: Eat healthy, slightly smaller meals before you go and then enjoy your favorites in moderation!

2. Overdoing fancy seasonal coffee drinks.

Even if you’ve seen these numbers before, it's helpful to look again. They are mostly empty calories and can wreak havoc on your blood sugar levels.
