Bring on the Holidays!!!

I have big plans for the holidays this year! I always love the holiday season but I often come away with some extra baggage. I'm not talking about the gifts, I am talking about the extra 5 pounds that I seem to hold onto with the Christmas goodies, the eggnog lattes and the lazy cold days. This year I am planning ahead :) Yes, I am still going to enjoy a few goodies as it IS only a once a year tradition, BUT, I am going to practice a little more control this year! I will balance a goodie or two with a few calories less somewhere else...I will balance my lazy days on the coach with some hard workouts to burn those extra calories...I will keep myself balanced, I will inspire my children and I will come out of the holidays with no extra baggage (other that the gifts from under the tree)!!!

I know I can succeed with my extra tools! I have my Shakeology to replace a meal a day...this will decrease my calories, increase my energy (naturally), help control my cravings, PLUS give me a TON of nutrition. I have a great selection of workouts at my fingertips with my Beachbody library. Even if I only have TurboFire, that give me a choice of 12 different workouts!!! But I also have Turbo Jam, RevAbs, Body Gospel, Slim in 6, Insanity, Hip Hop Abs, Rockin' Body, Brazil Butt Lift, Yoga Booty Ballet, and Tony and the Kids. If you are interested in any of these titles (and local) I will consider 1 week loans of some of these titles so you can try them out!
I will also keep a large variety of vegetables in my home, I will offer to take a healthy side dish to any holiday parties I attend, I will avoid stocking treats I know I won't be able to resist and I will plan for success!
What do you need to do to plan for your success? Success rarely comes without a little bit of work, so what are you going to do to plan for yours?

Happy November

How was your Halloween? Did you survive the onslaught of candy and goodies as trick or treaters took over the neighborhoods? It can be challenging, but sometimes it is easier to completely resist than to give in to one and THEN try to not have a second! But each of us are different in our ability to resist temptation!
I have discovered my weakest time when it comes to temptations and that is when I have NOT exercised! My body is already reeling from not having the blood pump fast enough or something, and it just goes downhill from there!
It makes me realize that I cannot let life keep me away from my workouts as it swirls me way off course in more ways than one...PLUS I get grumpy :o Yikes!!!
What throws you of course?
