TIS' THE SEASON - which usually translates to more sweets, more drinks, and a little more around the tummy region....
We know that for most, this time of year can be the time when fitness/health goals get pushed to January - too much traveling, too many parties, and way too many YUMS!
This blog is not going to tell you to only eat carrots and celery sticks or to lay off the wine - holidays should be a time when you enjoy yourself and the family and friends who have gathered to celebrate together.
We just wanted to give you the #1 tip for keeping your fitness/health goals somewhat on track without taking away the fun.
Are you ready for it?
If you belong to a gym or studio - GO! - don't skip your workouts - make the effort to get there.
If you are traveling - walk, go to the hotel gym, see if your gym/studio has a branch where you are traveling and make the time.
At holiday parties - STAND don't sit - DANCE if there is music.
After dinner - be the one to help pick up the plates - or do the dishes... not fun but more movement.
After presents - be the one to help pick up the trash from the wrapping paper.
Be the one to always get your own drinks or offer to get the next round (bonus points if you have to walk all the way down to the basement fridge to get them)
It really is that simple - adding in any type of movement this holiday season will help keep the tummy region from expanding too much and you will be ready to get right back into the swing of things come the new year!
