Maintain Don’t Gain Holiday Challenge

Maintain Don't Gain Challenge

We all know that Thanksgiving signals the opening day of a season of overeating, stress and inactivity. (My opening day started with all the Halloween Candy that magically appeared.)Unfortunately, the season does not end until well after we ring in the New Year.

For many Divas this also means unwanted weight gain. If you have been trying to lose weight before the holidays, it is especially hard to continue to do so once the Holidays arrive.

Therefore, the challenge is to try to maintain weight and not gain any during the weeks from Thanksgiving until after the first of the year.

This year, make a promise to yourself to enjoy the holiday season with a higher level of energy while maintaining your weight and healthy lifestyle!

So let’s take the “The Maintain Don’t Gain Challenge”!!!

When: November 20, 2013 until January 08,2013!!!!

What do you have to do for the challenge? Just a couple of Dos and Don’ts…

DO Eat 1 cup of fruit and/or veggies per day
