The holiday season is finally here. Did you know the average American gains weight between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day? Crazy isn’t it? Well don’t worry too much. Here below are some great ways to keep the extra weight off without changing too much of your holiday plans. With the right plan of action, you can make it through the holidays without putting on a single pound and indeed losing some to continue on with your journey to fitness success. Read on and get answers to a few key questions that will help you stay on track with your weight loss plan.
Losing weight during the holidays is extremely challenging. Changing your goals may be in order. Instead of focusing on continued weight loss during this time, focus on not gaining weight instead. Remember – the holidays should be enjoyable and food is a big part of the tradition and pleasures of the season. Sharing special foods with family and friends can make this time more meaningful. Instead of not eating the those special foods and having what you want, have your favorite foods in smaller portions and try to cut back in other ways. Pay more attention to keeping your exercise schedule on track. If you continue to exercise regularly and avoid gaining weight than you will have made it through one of the toughest times to stay dedicated to the fitness life. No one said it would be easy, but I promise that it would be worth it.
Continuing regular exercise and a good diet during the fun and exciting, but stressful holiday season can help you maintain your weight and stay on track. And of course if you plan on traveling, walking, stair-climbing, yoga, functional training, and stretching are very convenient and easy to do. You can do these activities almost anywhere. If you carry a laptop with you or happen to have one around with a webcam whether you travel or not, you can work out at the comfort of your own home, office, or bedroom. I offer a great way to work out through online personal training sessions which are very convenient during the holiday season. For more information please visit http://www.wello.co/profile/Herveezy/
You may need to adjust your schedule for holiday exercising. Don’t find time. Instead make time. Try to be flexible and understand that you can’t always work out according to your normal routine. However, try to sneak in exercise whenever possible; for example, take a walk after a large meal. And be sure to get back to your regular exercise routine as soon as you the season is over or when you return from your travels.
Here’s a list of some metabolism boosting foods that can be used as great snacks and also cooking for the holiday season. Happy holidays, enjoy and stay fit!
