That’s right! Football season is back! That means food, food and more food!
As soon as football gets rolling, the holidays are soon to follow!
This is a critical time to stay focused. It’s important to plan ahead and make sure you’re prepared. Don’t let yourself get off track. You’ve already worked too hard!
I plan my “cheat” or “slack”days around certain social functions or events, where I know I’ll be surrounded by temptations.
If I know I’m going to a football game Sunday, a baby shower Wednesday or a barbecue Friday, I will plan my workouts and food consumption accordingly. I will eat cleaner, lighter, and stay active the days before. This way I won’t be that person that can’t have any chips or says no to all the yummy treats. This is another part of finding your balance and being able to be a flexible eater.
I’m known by many as the snack queen and I have no shame pulling out my ziplock baggies of turkey meatballs, almonds, rice cakes, veggies, or whatever goodies I have hoarded in my purse. I won’t let myself ever be starving. It’s all planned and prepped!
Oh yeah, and GO JAGS!
