How to Find Yourself During an Existential Crisis_ Part 1

Blogger Secret Santa 2018

This year I participated in the Blogger Secret Santa 2018! It was my first time doing something like this and I absolutely loved it! I was lucky enough that the person I was doing the shopping for was someone I had linked to and read in the past, College with Caitlyn. 

I was lucky enough that my Secret Santa happened to be the one and only (and the awesome chick who runs this thing!) Abigail!

I think everyone has had a time where they over ate during Christmas and feel guilty for it. What if you prepped for that and even planned on overeating?! That’s definitely a thing that people do. If you’re in a more fitness inclined community, you’ll know that tracking calories are a big thing.

Knowing exactly how much nutrition your body needs per day with your set physical activity level to maintain the weight you are at, your Total Daily Energy Expenditure (TDEE), can help you determine how much you could eat at a deficit to plan for all the overeating during Christmas.

By eating healthier at a calorie deficit you can prepare for all the Christmas dinner and Christmas cookies you’ll have.
