1. 10WaysEat a healthy snack prior to attending social events so you’re not ravenous when you see temptations everywhere, never go to a party hungry.
  2. Look at the holiday as a day, not a week or a month. Allow yourself to splurge on one day-not for two months.
  3. Exercise. You will most likely eat more calories around the holidays due to the parties, large family meals, and gifts of chocolate and cookies! Therefore continuing to exercise throughout the holidays speeds up your metabolism to burn the extra calories faster.
  4. Drink 3 liters or 96-ounces of water daily, it aids in digestion and will keep you feeling full longer.
  5. Get outside, even if it’s chilly, bundle up.  Take a walk the fresh air will do you some good.
  6. Make time to relax; this is a stressful time of year for most of us.  Make sure you pencil in some YOU time, read a book, get a massage, take a bath, whatever gives you a much needed break.
  7. Avoid the mentality that, “It’s the holidays so I can eat whatever want and splurge just because.  Stick to the 80-20 philosophy (80% of our food should be nutrient rich, while 20% can be less nutrient rich).  Oh, and limit your alcohol, just because it’s the holidays doesn’t mean you need those empty calories.
  8. Get out there and shop!  Park further away at the department stores, walk the mall with a friend and get gift ideas.  Move your body!
  9. Remember what the holidays are all about. Focus less on the food and drinks and more on celebrating the special season and the company of the people you love — your family and friends.
  10. Give yourself the gift of health this holiday season.  It’s never to early to start your “New Years Resolutions”.  Make this the year to really get your health back on track.  Maybe you’d like to lose the last 10 pounds, or maybe you need to get a handle on your weight and health once and for all.  Wherever you may be, recognize that this is your chance to turn it all around.  If you are ready for a change, give Unite Fitness Retreat a call today and let us show you how our personalized fitness and weight loss program can transform your life forever.  866-589-5615
