In this weeks episode, I'm talking about why I broke up with meal plans for good. This episode was inspired by a loyal listener who took the time to share a bit of her story with me. She mentioned her uneasiness around going off a meal plan and not trusting herself, and it took me right back to the time in my life when I felt the same. 3 years ago, I didn't know what life was like beyond a meal plan. The fear of not knowing what to eat, wondering if I'd gain weight and how my body would react were all things I battled. So in today's episode, I'm talking about the top 5 things you can do to help you live beyond a meal plan.

I'm back with the 21st episode of the Progress over Perfection Podcast. In today's episode, I'm talking about my top 5 tips for navigating the holiday's and parties. This use to be a really anxiety provoking time of year for me. I was constantly nervous about going to parties and celebrating holiday's because I always felt pressure to eat certain things. My relationship with food and exercise wasn't the best, and it definitely hindered me from enjoying the season for what it is. I can confidently say that after many, many years of navigating the holiday's, I very much look forward to them now. So today, I want to help you ease into the holiday's with joy rather than fear. I want this season to be filled with memories of loved ones, adventures, and not how much you "felt" like you over ate and under exercised. I've got you covered, you're never alone.
1. Prioritize your healthy foods and fitness
2. Navigating the actual day of the holiday, parties and social gatherings
3. What to do with your fitness and food the few days after the holidays, parties, etc
4. Addressing family members, friends and co-workers who may push food on you
5. Last but not least, remembering what this season is all about
