Hey, let's do some math. Thanksgiving and Christmas are 48 hours out of 8,760. So, it's NOT the holidays that are wreaking your progress each year... it's your mindset.

When people focus on the scales as the single indicator of success they set themselves up for some real motivational challenges.
When we take stock of our whole lives we start to realize that we may be sleeping much better, have more energy, feel less fatigued, be able to walk, hike or bike longer, or simply get up off the floor or out of a chair with greater ease.
When it comes to your body, I think that the things you’re bad at are just as important as those you’re good at. In many ways, they may be more important. For one thing, the things you’re bad at, those that are hard for you, have much greater potential to allow for progress, both psychologically and physically.

Instead of having an "Off" & "On" switch when it comes to your nutrition think of it as a sliding scale or a dial. You can take it one notch up to dial it in for an event or competition. Or dial it back to still eat healthy but enjoy an occasional splurge guilt free. Be careful not to switch "off" letting go of all of your healthy habits that got you to where you are. Just turn the dial one notch.
