The Holiday season can be enough to derail even the most dedicated exerciser. Here are some tips from WebMD to help you stay fit through New Years’.
One suggestion is creating a home workout routine for those times you can’t make it to the gym. Crunches, push-ups, and many other exercises can be done without any gym equipment.
Be flexible when your days get busy. Instead of simply blowing off your 5 p.m. trip to the gym in favor of an office party at the same time, wake up an hour early and walk or jog before work. Or fit a brisk walk into your lunch hour
Mix up your routine to avoid boredom. If you usually run four days a week, try running once, swimming once, and lifting weights twice.
WebMD also recommends creating a home workout routine for those times you can’t make it to the gym. Crunches ,push-ups , and many other exercises can be done without any gym equipment.
Another great suggestion is to always have a pair of running or walking shoes with you, along with a set of light, hand-held weights, and a clean pair of socks,” Keller suggests. “If all else fails, you have the minimum equipment necessary to get in a walk.”
The most important advice in regards to exercise and eating during the holidays is to do your best to get some form of exercise and to eat with moderation, taking care to watch portion size and calories. It’s ok to enjoy a piece of pecan pie, just not the whole pie in one sitting !! 🙂
Happy holidays to you and your families from David and Richard. See you in the gym !
