November 25,2012Pumpkin pie. Hot toddies. Stuffing. Cookies. Cocktails. More than any other time of year, the holidays pose the greatest challenge to our willpower - and our waistlines. But fret not! Try a few of these simple, easy tweaks to enjoy the holidays to the fullest without sabotaging your health.
Oh the holidays are here! Yes, a fun time of year indeed, but don't less yourself go. "It's the holiday season!" Wasn't that last year's excuse? From now until the New Year, practice willpower. I too will be exercising willpower. I make it through Thanksgiving with a gold star, but the challenge I face are my Mom's chocolate cherry cookies at Christmas (soooo good!). I beg her to make them this one time a year, but I can't seem to stop at just one. I use the excuse and as a result I'm guilty of overindulging.
Summer vacation on your mind? In need of sunshine on your body? No better time to cleanse! Travel and leisure are pleasurable, health-boosting activities, but getting to or managing your way back from a trip can take its toll. Perfect time to "staycation" and practice a cleanse!
For those of you have seen Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead and dusted off your juicers, good for you! Others who are inspired after CAN CAN'ing with us, often write to share with me that they bought a juicer and are juicing at home, fantastic! Keep those emails coming! What a way to show dedication to improve your health and wellness by embracing and tackling juicing at home. It's one of my primary goals of CAN CAN Cleanse; to empower my clients to continue to practice mindfulness in their day-to-day diets after the cleanse.
