December can be the busiest month of the year for many people. From holiday entertaining to endless shopping, and from visiting friends and family to all of that food, it is very easy to get off track when it comes to your diet and exercise.
But your exercise regimen doesn’t have to falter just because it’s the holiday season. Use the following tips to help keep on track when it comes to fitness this year:
Instead of taking that leisurely stroll through the mall when you do your Christmas shopping turn that stroll into a power walk.
Take the stairs while you are at the mall instead of using the elevator or escalator.
Park in the lower lot of the mall and get that extra exercise by walking a little further to the mall.
Try working out in the morning before your busy days get underway.
Invite your house guests to work out with you so you can spend time with them and still get your exercise in.
If you are traveling, check to see if your gym shares their membership with other gyms and try to get in a work out there. If not visit the local YMCA or get a one-time pass to the local gym.
While these are only a few tips to help you keep fit over the holidays, these are definitely a jump start in the right direction.
Wishing you and yours a safe and happy holiday season!
