5 WAYS TO STAY FIT
DURING THE HOLIDAYS:
✅ Follow these simple tips to maintain your weight loss and fitness success this holiday season.
We’re smack dab in the middle of the holiday drinking season; food and festivities will be plentiful, so don’t jump in blindly. It is totally possible to still enjoy good food and mingle your way through the holidays without adding unwanted weight.
Here are the top five tips to keep your body-fat-percentage low and stay fight-ready this holiday season.
1. KEEP YOUR ROUTINE
There’s no reason to stop working out. Going to a party? Go for a run or get in a good workout at the gym before you head out. Or plan a semi-private training session the morning after a big bash.
You’ll be less likely to overindulge if you know you’re going to get an ass-kicking the next morning.
2. GO AHEAD, LOOK BACK
Say it with me and Socrates: “An unexamined life is not worth living.” It’s healthy to sit down and take stock of events and choices that led us to where we are in life at this particular moment in time..
3. PREPARE FOR THE NEW YEAR
It’s important to ensure that all your plans are in place before the new year begins so that you can be ready to follow through on them. Plan a new training plan; buy quality training gear
; or get a head start on some of your New Year’s resolutions. Do whatever you think is necessary for you to feel prepared for 2019.
4. PORTION CONTROL
If you have a choice of plates, grab the smaller one and fill it with healthy choices. It will feel like you’re eating more, when in fact you’re eating less. Less is more in this case.
5. GIVE THANKS
Gather friends and family, and let them know how lucky you feel to have them in your life. The habit of thankfulness is like a muscle that needs to be exercised. As the Lord Jesus himself said (Acts 20:35): "It is more blessed to give than to receive"
