Happy Fit Holiday
With Christmas fast approaching and the diary beginning to fill with many evenings out for dinner plus drinks, I decided to provide a few tips on damage limitation.
With the temptation of all the lovely party food and the alcohol flowing freely, the festive season can quickly spiral out of control into a explosion of calories. With the added stress that this time of the year can bring, things can easily get out of hand, exercise plus good nutrition tends to get put on the back burner till mid January.
With temptation coming from every angle, pressure from peers to go out drinking it may seem easier you give up your healthy lifestyle all together then pick things back up in the new year. However, there is still hope of getting you closer to your fitness goals during this time rather than taking steps backwards.
I have a few tips here that will allow you to enjoy yourself without increasing your waistline.
During this time it may seem difficult to stick with your current routine with all these social engagements but you need to put your health first. Rather than giving up al together then planning on getting back on the wagon in January, aim to plan less time consuming session 30 -45 minutes for example.
Giving up altogether can turn out to be difficult when it comes to getting back into the swing of things. Short circuit based session can be hard work effective, but fun at the same time, why not try our fat burning workout. This workout is tough but has many rewards; you’ll be flooded with endorphins and ready to dance the night away.
If you have been pretty mindful with what you now eat now is no tie to go absolutely bonkers, enjoy yourself yes but moderation is key.
On your meals out try to control your portions, load up on veggies and drink lots of water. Try to avoid long periods without food if you have a dinner planned for the evening because you’ll probably end up eating more than usual, enjoy the food but try to avoid huge plies of food all in one go.
