I started thinking about how to take everything good I could from 2016.... and I couldn't stop. This is a purely indulgent post. My 2016 in review.
It's that time of year y'all: party time!! Between now and New Year will be dinners, holiday parties, family get togethers (and birthdays for those unlucky people who have holiday birthdays and get combo gifts every year).
This party season is especially tough for people who are on a diet or people who find success by regularly planning their meals.
So how do you get through the holidays without completely going off the rails on your diet? I have a simple formula I follow. Let me share.
The process of creating new habits takes effort at the beginning, but it becomes easy once you are in the routine. Your workouts will make you feel good all day and sleep better at night. Healthy meals will help you lose fat and avoid the random energy slumps during the day.
Once this becomes second nature and you are in your groove, you will wonder how you lived before feeling so good. It seems easy. You’ll see.
Then, BAM. Life will hit you.
Here's what you do to get through it.
Squat by Southwest is back at Hyde Park Gym! Who will be king of the squats? In addition to being a great time, this year is extra special. This year's event is dedicated to fundraising to help our friend Stephen Moore who was injured by an uninsured motorist.
