Happy weekend after Thanksgiving! Did you eat your weight in sweet potatoes, stuffing, and pie like I did? (Note the lack of mention of turkey – I ate some, but I’m not a fan, so it was a small part of my meal(s).) I don’t know about you, but despite a couple of runs, I’m feeling full and weighted down from too many days of too much eating.
I was recently given a copy of The Food Dare ebook to review as a member of FitFluential. I finally had a chance to read it this weekend and decided to do it starting on December 1 (actually, I’m doing the first day for the next 3 days as a jump start.)
Creator Lindsey Banks DARES you to add a new healthy habit every day for 30 days. She doesn’t ask you to give up your favorite holiday foods and drinks. She doesn’t preach a weight loss goal. She gives you a daily “dare” to accomplish each day. The plan is to add healthy choices to your life rather than take away your treats.
In addition to the book, you can join a support group to help you accomplish each “dare”. I know that I do better at reaching healthy goals when I’ve joined groups to support me through, so if you’d like to join, use code “idareyou” to get 20% off joining her Essential and Premium teams.
The healthy changes in this book are not new things. In fact, most of them are things we all know we need to do. But how often do we actually remember to make healthy choices during the chaos of the holidays?
I know I will still be enjoying myself at parties and that there will be beer in my life. I’m not one to deprive myself in general (and definitely not going to during the holidays), but adding some healthy habits will set me up to be ready for when training season begins again in January.
Anyone else feeling a bit over stuffed and lethargic from the holidays and need a bit of a push to add back in some healthy choices?
