Recovering from Holiday Excess

Who did not eat a bit too much of the overwhelmingly-fat and gooey goodies?  Not me!  I indulged for several days prior to the big family dinner, and am now in major recovery mode from my holiday excess.  I felt bloated and loggy the first day, and followed a Lean, Clean and Green eating plan for the next two days.  We celebrate at our house on Christmas Eve, with the grandkids.  Then, we recover on Christmas, just in time to go to their home for another huge feast.  This time, we did not make it.  All three of us — me, hubby and his sister, lay around like beached whales on Christmas Day.  Burping and feeling quite out-of-sorts.  We had consumed quantities of fresh Dungeness crab, cheese ball with crackers, chips and guacamole, pumpkin pie with whipped cream, a small salad and many candies, all the day before.  By the time Christmas rolled around, we could not move!

We recovered enough on the 26th to catch a movie.  I ate popcorn, but did not consume the box of Red Vines, as I usually do.  (Yes, even Health Coaches have our vices!)  By the way, the new Star Wars movie is pretty good.  A bit predictable, but….as a die-hard Star Wars fan, I felt it was worth it.

Now, back to the right way to recover.  Get some exercise.  I walked my dog, worked out on my Total Gym and did some intense yoga.  I burped some nasty stuff and farted/pooped the rest.  Crass, but true!  You gotta get those toxins out, whatever it takes!

Took some USANA Probiotics, ate some salads and veggies.  Limited the rich foods, cut-back on pies and cookies.  All the goodies I was consuming during the wrapping and decorating cycle are now tossed.  Time to get back to the right way to eat.

In case you are looking for a bit more intense clean-out, or to drop some pounds quickly, I will be launching a SexyFit Weight-loss Challenge mid-January.  You can do it with a support-group, or individually, on your own time.  I have a great program that will clean you up and do it gently, without excessive running to the bathroom.  If you want to know more, go to http://www.deb.sexyfitnutritionchallenge.com and get signed up!  We will launch on January 19.  The USANA Reset lasts five days, and you should lose between four to six pounds.  Then, we move to Transform and keep losing one to two pounds a week. The key is to get enough nutrition to help your body want to let the fat go.  This program from USANA works, and I use it with all my clients.  For the past sixteen years, we have enjoyed the results of paying attention to calories, sugar, high-fiber and exercise for just a few days.  Plus, you will kick carb and sugar cravings!  What a difference a Reset makes!

Meantime, 2018 is around the corner.  Forget the New Year’s Resolutions and just decide to get on-track and stay there.  The right vitamin protocol helps, along with the probiotics and daily exercise.  Drink half your weight in ounces of water a day.  Get your fiber!  Limit sugar to below 50 grams a day.  Simple, but most just let the days slide and do not hit those goals.  Daily consistency helps you stay Sexy, Lean and Strong – At Any Age!
