Hello is this thing on? I'm just checking because I'm talking about something really important today -- surviving the holidays. For some the holidays bring stress and when you're stressed it's easier to get sick. Maybe you have small children which kyou now how that goes. No one wants to be sick, especially when it comes to the holiday season.

3 Tips to Surviving the Holidays

Eat a healthy breakfast
Start the day with a healthy meal. If you don't have time to make eggs, etc. opt for a smoothie. Yes, you can drink smoothies during the winter.

Yesterday I kicked off my morning with a "banana booster." Blend together 1 cup unsweetened Almond Milk, 1 banana (frozen if you have it), 1/2 cup frozen pineapple, peaches or mango (or a combo of the three), 2 tbsp natural PB, 2 scoops youtheory® Maca Root and a cup of ice. Makes two smoothies! Enjoy.


Maca (commonly known as Peruvian Ginseng) is cultivated at high altitudes in the Andes Mountains of Peru. This root vegetable is historically used for nutritional and health purposes. Its many traditional uses include: food, energy, hormone balancing, sexual functioning, PMS relief and menopause relief.* Today, Maca is best known as a “superfood" and an "adaptogenic botanical” that is ideally suited for both men and women’s health.*

Exercise
Don't skip a workout. If you're visiting family go for a walk or drop in on another gym. That's the thing I love about Crossfit I can go anywhere and find other likeminded individuals. Our GYM current held a "Turkey Throwdown" competition to help promote staying active during the holidays. 

Regular exercise helps control the holiday weight gain, combat long term health conditions and diseases, improves mood, boosts energy and promotes better sleep. Plus, exercising is fun especially when you get outdoors! 

Sorry, but this was the best photo I could find of me from the event. 
Sleep
Don't forget to sleep! The hubs has a hard time sleeping -- always has. Sometimes I'll find him on the couch in the morning. Anyway, for the last few weeks he's been taking youtheory® Sleep Nighttime Powder and about a week ago finally started sleeping soundly through the night.
