Let’s face it, beginning this evening people put their health on hold for the rest of the year. They will most likely enjoy a few Twixes, a couple Almond Joys, and more Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups than they can count. This type of snacking will last for up to a couple of weeks if you take into account the candy bowl at work and the leftover candy you somehow just couldn’t give away tonight. Before you know it, Thanksgiving is right around the corner which is yet another one of America’s favorite holiday to eat like shit for days at a time. Follow this up with Christmas, which is even worse than Thanksgiving as the eating seems to go on for weeks, and you have the perfect trifecta of gluttony. Maybe it’s just me but it seems that since department stores started the Christmas shit in October, people somehow interpreted this as an excuse to begin bulking up for the winter. Tis also the season many clients will begin cancelling their personal training sessions because they are just too busy. For all you fair weather clients this time of year, don’t think your trainer doesn’t know your next move. We know there is a high likelihood you will be back in the gym January 2nd. We also know that the same 10 to 20 lbs you just put on between Halloween and New Years is going to be a little tougher to lose as the years add up. So do yourself a favor, lay off the Kit Kats and the Whatchamacallits tonight and at work tomorrow. Perhaps just gorge yourself on food for only two holidays this year and see if your pant size only goes up a single digit or so. Good night and good luck, I’m going to treat myself with a Mary Jane.
