How to Stay Fit During the Holidays (Part One)
Being in good shape isn’t a thing you achieve over a week. It is a non-stop work, you can’t get a break from. During festive days, people usually overeat, drink too much alcohol and spend more time at home than usual. All those factors contribute for weight gain, and this is the main reason why, we decided to give you some effective tips on how to stay fit during the holidays.
When thinking of Christmas, the first thing that comes to mind are all the gifts we give and receive. And the second place is reserved for the multiple course, delicious dinner. While shopping for presents may result into burned calories, staying at home eating will give the exact opposite result.
Don’t worry, no one expects you to keep a diet on Christmas Eve, this would be unheard of. What we will try to do, is give you some advice on how avoid overeating and be more active, rather than just staying at home gaining weight.
1.Think smart when cooking
I am certainly not trying to change the traditions and convince you, salad is the traditional Christmas dish. We all are aware what’s served on this holiday. There will be turkey and pudding, but there is no harm in preparing several different type of salads, to put on the table. And don’t forget the carrots as well, they are also part of the tradition.
Christmas is a great time to do an inventory and de-clutter your home from all the things you don’t need. This way, you will free up space for the new things, coming in. Last year I organised a charity sale, together with my cleaners in South Norwood. It was a total win win, I got rid of stuff I don’t need, while raising money for hose who are less fortunate. Don’t underestimate the process, it involves physical work and will ensure you will stay in shape and feel better about yourself, like all good deeds do.
Those are just two of our tips on how to stay in shape during the holidays. Stay tuned for the rest.
