Take joy in time with loved ones.
100% that is what life’s about. Not your lifts, not your body fat %
Try new foods you don’t usually get to eat.
With an open mind and freedom of guilt.
Set boundaries with your work commitments.
The work will be there when you get back.
You don’t have to stick to your meals and workout plans.
It’s what you do 80% of the time that counts, don’t let your fitness goals take you out of the moment.
You don’t have to get drunk at every event.
Social connections can and should thrive without alcohol
You don’t have to stuff your face and overload your digestive system.
There will be other occasions, other treats, it’s not your last meal and grandma won’t get that offended.
