As holiday season rolls around, it's safe to say a lot of us what to ditch our, er… rolls in time to don an itzy bitzy bikini.
But as ALL of us know, it's not that easy, and sometimes we have to be super honest with ourselves in order to achieve our goals.
So, if you're determined to drop those extra few inches over the next couple of months, here are a few tips to help you along the way.
Sleep is QUEEN
Nabbing at least seven hours of sleep every night helps you manage your appetite (and keeps you sane).
Late nights and extra early mornings can mess with your hunger hormones and lead you down a path of munching on those very-tempting greasy foods.

Losing weight and a healthy diet go hand in hand
Unfortunately, no matter how hard you workout, you can't trick your body.
No matter how many hours you spend at the gym it won’t work if you consume more calories than you could possibly burn.
So, be kind to your body and give it the best nutrition you can.
Mix it up
Being an expert in yoga might give you a confidence boost, but if you get too comfortable you’re going to stop seeing results, so try and mix it up.
Fitness instructors often suggest doing a mix of cardio, weight-training and aerobics.
If anything, it'll make things interesting.
You DO have the time
Making the time to look after your health will help you develop better habits that your future-self will thank you for.
