On the first day of Christmas…

As part of my role as a Unislim weight management consultant, I see that this time of year can really put a strain on your resolve and dedication to eating healthy and staying in shape. No matter how much of an iron-cast will you have, you would need to be made of stone to not be affected by the shop offers, M&S ads making food sexy, the smells and aromas from cafes and Christmas markets… it’s enough to drive one to mulled wine and mince pies! And with the weather decidedly anti-any-outdoor-activity, getting motivated to exercise outside is a real struggle. So I’ve devised a little 12 Days of Christmas poem that focuses on what you can achieve by Christmas day, by really committing to stay on track for the next t-minus 22 days, and help to avoid the January Dread once all the festivities are over.

Stay on track – you’ll be so glad you did 🙂
