How to go back to healthy lifestyle after holidays

 How to go back to healthy lifestyle after holidays __ this is the question I always have in my mind after Christmas and New Year's Eve celebrations because that's the only one-week-period when  I let myself eat whatever I have been craving for months and, honestly, I feel the happiest person on the planet eating that pistachio gelato, strawberry cheesecake, and hot chocolate brownies with melting vanilla ice-cream on top. 
It comes time when I have to pay for my indulges  because everything has its price, haha

And let me tell you, January is not the funny time for me because that's the time I have to go from cake/cheesecake/Ice-cream/chocolate directly to baby carrots, spinach and celery,  haha, and even writing these words in the same sentence makes me feel depressed...

Anyways, there are few things that I wanted to share with you, that usually help me to go back to track.

Get ready phsicologically

Number one thing, I do is that I get ready phsicologically for the transition to healthy lifestyle. I leave my holiday spirit behind me, and I get rid of all the holiday decorations from the rooms, including christmas tree, so, that way, I'm mentally ready to accept the fact that holidays are over , and so is my unhealthy eating routine.

Stop going to grocery stores

I usually don't go to any grocery store for about one week (I may go to a Farmers Market or other vegetable store where I know, I can't buy any unhealthy sweet snack). If I 'survive' without sweet for a week , that means I can go to regular grocery stores without hesitation because I'm mentally and phisicaly ready to stay away from sweets, even when I buy some dessert for my 7 years old daughter.

Go back to gym

Where else can I get more motivated than in gym? So, I always go back to gym right after holidays, to make sure that I will not want to keep snacking around with some cakes or chocolate, because gym makes me stay motivated even outside of the gym.

Check out fitness and healthy lifestyle Instagram accounts

This always helps. Checking out fitness /healthy diet accounts is a must for me after holidays (well, checking them out other time doesn't hurt either, haha). It's so inspiring for me that I just want to throw away all unhealthy food/snack from fridge and run to the gym, haha. 

I hope, this helps anyone who is trying to go back to healthy lifestyle. Let me know what else I can do to stay motivated. I would love to hear your tips too. 

Thanks for reading lovelies.

Stay  Fabulous!

    It's so important to live a healthy life.

  11. I usually take the decorations down the 6th of January which is known as Little Christmas. It is also my sisters birthday so this was a tradition in our family. I allow myself sugar with little restraint between Halloween and NYE. Then the fist week of January I cut back some and then after this I am on my limited sugar diet. Great tips here.

  16. Yes this is very good insight about moderation and lifestyle habits. We all do indulge from time to time and I think that is a good thing. Thank you for sharing all of these tips and such a relevant blog post.

  17. It can definitely be hard to get back into a healthy lifestyle after the holidays, so these tips are really helpful! Getting ready mentally is really important and I like the idea of shopping at a farmers market. Wishing you a happy and healthy 2019!

  18. "I have to go from cake/cheesecake/Ice-cream/chocolate directly to baby carrots, spinach and celery" - LOL! I am having this same problem. I had cut way back on sugar (I have a terrible sweet tooth) and then Halloween. There's a constant stream of food at the office between Halloween and Christmas (and I'm guilt of providing some of it). I was working at weaning myself off of it again and then this Friday somebody brought in doughnuts and later in the day, Nothing Bundt Cakes brought us a whole bundt cake to sample. There are only 8 of us in the office. I did just taste the frosting and scrape the rest off, but I ate the cake part :/ Thanks for the inspiration and your photo of the Christmas tree display is beautiful!


  19. Great tips! I am having issues with sugar too. I am not really that much in love with it but I do understnad my body doesn't like the amount of sugar I allowed myself because 'it is holidays after all'

  20. These are good tips! :) I definitely indulge over Christmas, but try to eat healthy the rest of the year - even just reducing the amount of chocolate I eat, I always eat a lot over Christmas, haha! :)

    Hope that you are having a wonderful weekend :) Our summer heatwave is continuing, today will be a quiet day in the aircon I think!

  22. These are great tips! I'm not the best at denying myself treats, so I tend to stick to more of an "everything in moderation" diet throughout the year! x
