The Maintain, Don’t Gain December challenge is happening now! The challenge runs the whole month of December and as the title says, the goal is to maintain your weight during the holiday season when we tend to leave willpower to the wayside in favor of over-indulging in sugar and fat laden meals.  Not to mention how we turn a blind eye to portion control. The key to a healthy lifestyle is mindful eating, regular physical activity, stress management and consuming things in moderation.

The goal of this challenge is to earn at least 75 points in December. You can earn points the following ways each day:

  • Get at least 30 minutes of physical activity each day – This is a great way to burn calories and stay active.
  • Limit sweets and alcohol to one serving – This will keep your calorie count to a minimum.
  • Eat meals and snacks before 7 p.m. – This gives your body time to process what you eat before bedtime.
  • Practice a stress management tool each day. – This can be anything that works for you to help decrease your stress throughout the holiday season.
