How to Stay Fit During the Holidays
The Holiday Season is here and a lot of people are off sabotaging all of their hard work they've put in during the year. I'm here to tell you that you can still enjoy the Holiday season while staying fit! Here are some tips for getting through the season without throwing away everything you have worked for during this past year:
Make time for your workouts.
How many times have you heard people say "I'll get back on track after the holidays". Why?! Why not maintain where your hard work has gotten you? Don't skip out on your workouts, make time for even a 30 minute workout each day. You will thank yourself later!
Get your family involved.
A lot of people would much rather relax on the couch with their family during the holidays. There is plenty of time for that, but, why not go for a brisk walk or a family trip to the gym?
When sitting down for a holiday dinner I know that I want to try anything and everything. Enjoy yourself but be mindful of your portions!
Choose one treat per party
Chances are you will have many opportunities where there is a nice dessert spread in front of you. Choose one treat, and make it a good one, as opposed to trying one of each!
Water is your BFF
Drink an 8oz glass of water before meals. This will help fill you up! Also,drinking alcohol is going to increase your chances of consuming more calories. Fruity cocktails are loaded with calories and drinking usually results in more snacking! Try drinking a glass of water for every non-water drink you consume. Or, you can always just choose to drink water as your beverage! Also, watch the eggnog! A typical glass of eggnog has 350 calories!
