5 Ways To Jingle Your Way Slim This Christmas

Tis the season where I see many ladies freak out about what they're going to do about mum's Christmas stuffing, homemade cookies, and the leftover After Eights...without expanding their waistline.

I know what you’re thinking: “it’s not Christmas yet, Matt. It’s not even December...”

Which I’m glad you’ve brought up. 

Because during this time of the year?

The average weight gain is between 1-13lbs...


Well, maybe you’re busier than ever preparing everything for everyone else. Presents, food and just making sure the Christmas period is great for everyone else...but you..

Maybe you have many social events. Your family are feeders (the Italians are great at this. And even better at Christmas time. 5 plates of Nonna’s pasta or “you not love Nonna”...)

Or maybe you just think it will be easier in January when you’ll have “less stress” (forgetting that there’s never a “perfect time”...after all, the most depressing day of the year is in January).

Either way, here’s 5 SMARTER WAYS to survive Christmas without expanding your waistline ...

1. Deprivation will result in FAILURE - I'll never forget one year when a member using my Tone Up System (let's cal; her Jane) went to a Christmas party. There were mince pies out. And there were also bowls of salted nuts. 

Now, Jane decided to be 'healthy' and take the nuts. 

After all, 'Mince pies are bad'. 'don't eat the mince pies' <<< OK, now what do you think Jane is thinking about? 


She ended up eating about 5 handfuls of nuts before THEN...having the mince pie anyway. 

So, don't become so obsessed with not having it. As you'll just end up 'giving in', eating as many as you can, feeling guilty and becoming even more obsessed with foods you "shouldn't" eat. 

Take home:

Choose a few social events you're going to enjoy. On others? Make some small adjustments. It doesn't have to be all-or-nothing. Pretty good is still 'pretty good'. Don't aim for perfection, just be consistent. 

And know that the most attractive look in the world is 'health'. Which means sometimes, going out with your friends and family and enjoying some great food and vino, is the healthy choice.

2. Start burning fat now - the longer you wait, the harder it is to get started. 

There will be never be a 'perfect' time to start. Not even in January.

And - if you think about it - if you start now.  During one of the busiest, most pie abundance time of the year and can stick to it?

It begs the question: when can't you do it?

Take home:

Set yourself small, simple tasks, like always having a full glass of water with you during the day at arms reach.

And focus on the basics. Example:

Grab a hand sized portion of protein (Turkey is literally the leanest animal meat you can have..), as much veggies as you want... THEN fill your plate with the rest 🙂

3. Make your body process sugar better - doing muscle strengthening / toning exercises (just like we do in my Tone Up Programme) improves how your body handles sugar, tones muscles, and helps to improve your body shape

4. Go for walks where you can with your friends and family - Not only can this be great for your mind and help burn up some calories, but it also helps you improve your fitness and curb your hunger.

Take home:

Go for a walk after your lunch / dinner. It takes 20 minutes for your body to tell you if you're full up.

At the very least?

Just get out of the kitchen 🙂

5. Know that being full and having enough are two different things - Remember  stuffing is for turkeys!! 

Now, I know weight gain during the Christmas season seems as likely as Santa coming down the chimney...

But just by starting today. No matter how small of a step you make. You can take control.

Now, you can read these and say “ye they make sense”, but none of this matters unless you do it.

Which is why I put together my 14-day Pre Christmas Slim Down Programme.

If you'd like to join our merry band of like minded ladies to help keep you accountable, “stop stopping”...

And reignite your motivation to tone up BEFORE Christmas using a Tone Up System that fits your lifestyle so you can do it even on your busiest, most stressful day?
