In this episode, Les Alfred from The Balanced Berry joins me again to discuss having a balanced holiday season! Les is a health / wellness / fitness blogger and a Certified Personal Trainer, and she always has the best, REALISTIC tips on how to stay healthy and balanced even in the busiest times. In this episode, we chat about the difficulties many people run into during the holidays, since Thanksgiving and Christmas are right around the corner. We discuss ways to balance food and treats during the holiday season, the dangers of restricting and bingeing, and what to do when you have dietary restrictions. We talk about how the holidays are about much more than just food, and we also address how to find balance with your schedule. Why are there so many parties?!
We also talk about how to maintain a realistic fitness routine, that’s actually effective, during the holidays. Definitely sign up for Les’s Holiday Slay if you want effective, quick, free workouts to keep you feeling great this holiday season! We discuss how to deal with family drama during the holidays and what to do when people give you a hard time. We share our own personal experiences with family during the holidays and talk about the questions we hate getting asked the most. We wrap up with our favorite parts about the holidays, why Christmas music should never come before Thanksgiving, and the best holiday jams.
