When laying out plans for improvement with diet and training, one critical component to consider is the day-to-day. This is especially true during the holidays. For success, balance in training and exercise to ensure both progress and enjoyment must be achieved. Make sure to plan for travel (where to train and when, equipment available, meal prep, and food shopping) and changes to schedule (training days, duration of training, and meal times). Taking all of this into account beforehand will make things more enjoyable and more productive. Often times, I see clients fail with this when they aren't prepared. When you aren't prepared, it’s easy to get pulled off track. So plan ahead. Have both the good (training, proper nutrition) and the not-so-good (cheat meals, poor schedule) planned out so you can enjoy the holidays guilt-free and navigate through without hindering progress.
