The holidays are here and for most of us it means that there is a feast waiting for us around every corner! This can be a very difficult time of temptation as you are trying to stay within your bikini prep goals!
Please keep in mind as you head out to your holiday parties, that the reason for the season is to spend time with friends and family. Remember it should be all about the moments and memories that are created and doesn’t have to be about the food!
Temptation will be around every corner, but remember you’ve worked too hard all year, to blow it over the next month! Instead of throwing all your hard earned efforts, remember these tips before you hit those holiday parties:
- Don’t arrive hungry
- Offer to bring a healthy dish
- Eat a high protein & fiber meal before heading out the door
- Drink plenty of water
- Position yourself away from the buffet table
- Avoid the alcohol
- Remember the reason you’re celebrating
Concentrate on socializing, making new friends, and having fun. Think about what you are celebrating and not just the great food.
As the holidays are a time to enjoyment the temptation to overindulge will be high. Don’t stress though, with a little planning, your bikini competition goals don’t need to fall by the wayside.

With that said, I’m going to apologize now for the flood of macro friendly dessert recipes recently! I have been trying my best to cover the dessert basics for the ultimate bikini prep! I want competitors to be able to satisfy a sweet tooth, but also stay on track with their goals. The last recipes have been cake, ice cream, and cookies.
