Recovery Day – Happy Holidays

The Holidays are in full swing, so stop looking at your food as either “good” or “bad” for you, and just eat. 

I’m not going to tell you to eat differently on Christmas. Nobody wants to miss out on the pecan pie or to skip the extra cheesy mashed potatoes. At this point, you’re well aware of what fuels you and what doesn’t. 

But that’s not the point. The point of the holidays is to celebrate what you believe in, your family, and the experiences of the past year. 

In a one-to-two day celebration, what will you lose? Even if you eat a thousand calories more, you’re not going to completely undermine your health. It’s okay to take a break from meticulously counting your macros and to focus on the present.

However, if you just want to expend a little bit of energy between the festivities, join in on our Christmas Bodyweight WOD Challenge, from 12/24-12/29. There’s a $60 buy-in, but you win your cash back and split everyone’s cash who missed a workout. For more info, check out our Facebook page. 

What we’re trying to show you here is that there are options to keep you in check and in shape over break. Take advantage of them, or just take a couple days to recoup, enjoy your family, and indulge in the food.

Just focus on your happiness and have a Happy Holiday.
