The holidays are a time for celebration and family, not to put on weight. It's almost as if we've come to accept that we are going to put on 10 pounds during each holiday season. But, it doesn’t have to be that way. Sure, it may not be the best time to lose weight, but you don’t have to lose your health either. The key is to have a plan. Here are five tips to help you keep your health over the holidays:
Tip #1: Stock-up on healthy food. It is more important then ever to stock your kitchen with healthy foods. Have healthy snacks handy. The more convenient they are, the more likely you are to eat them.
Tips #2: Make an appointment with yourself to exercise. Your schedule will be very hectic this holiday season. Schedule your workouts just as you would any other appointment. It's ok if you can't make it to class, but make sure that you get some activity in at least three days per week.
Tip #3: Think twice before eating food from people offering it to you. You probably aren't aware how much extra food you consume just from people offering it to you. A sample at the market here, an extra cookie at an office party there and it all adds up.
Tip #4: Don’t bake. Do you make baked goods for giving? Chances are you eat much of what you bake. Instead, prepare ingredients for baked goods and put them in pretty jars--let your gift recipient bake it up.
Tip #5: Hydrate Keep your water bottle with you at all times. You should be drinking eight, 8-oz glasses of water each day. One handy trick is to buy a 64-ounce water jug. Fill it up in the morning and know that you need to finish it by the end of the day.
