How to Like Your Naked Body Better by Christmas

Everyone wants to look good naked all the time, but this is the time of year we start to snack and drink ourselves off track, which has a direct impact on how we look unclothed.
Think about it. The holiday eating season is knocking. It starts with the Halloween candy. Then, less than a month later, the Thanksgiving gorge, followed by Christmas cookies and candies and cocktail weenies. Then, we bubbly ourselves through New Years Eve. That’s four major eating/drinking events, in two months. No other period of time contains this much eating/drinking temptation.
Let’s keep you on track! Close your eyes and imagine how good you want to look naked by Christmas. Imagine that sweet little dress you want to wear at your company holiday party, or that new tankini you got for your escape to Hawaii for Christmas.
We have two months, my friends, and a lot can be accomplished in that time frame. But time is limited. To get serious you must start now.
Start with a plan to be active every day. Now is a good time, for instance, to get to the gym and try out the latest and greatest group exercise classes. If you don’t have a gym membership, then bundle up and walk outside. Grab 5 lb dumbbells and pump your arm while walking. Do some walking lunges. At stop signs, do some squats. Who cares if someone is watching? It’s not about them. It’s about how you want to look naked. Keep the goal in sight.
At the same time, turn up the knob on how attentive you are to what you eat. Plan your meals through the eating season. Plan for healthy snacks. On days that end with holiday parties, eat healthy and drink lots of water before you go. Eat your healthy meal at home, and when you are at the party, stay near the veggie tray.
Another angle for staying on track is to challenge yourself. At my studio starting November 15 to December 15, I am challenging my clients to do 30 days of Pilates or some sort of workout to stay on track. I will be monitoring progress throughout the month. Yes, I’m taking measurements and body fat calculations, and naming a winner at the end. The winner gets a 5 pack of Pilates classes.
Since many, if not most of you are not nearby my studio, do it on your own. Challenge yourself at your local gym or at home. Most gyms will test your body fat and take your measurements. Keep a journal of your progress, and when the 30 days are up, reward yourself with something you always wanted. Or, just strip down and see how much you like what you see. If you stick to your plan, you will see results — which will shore you up to keep it going through the holidays.
