Holiday Weight Gain..?? No Probs....!!

Festive fitness

With all of the partying, shopping and spending time with family, the holidays are nothing short of hectic. But that doesn’t mean you should skimp on your sweat sessions. Even just 20 minutes of vigorous activity three times a week will keep you fit during the festive season.

Go for walks around your neighborhood to check out the lights and holiday décor – add lunges, sprints or squats into your routine for an added boost. An even better option? Sign up for one of the many fun runs occurring each weekend during the holiday season . Ranging from three to 15 miles, you can get in a great cardio workout and then sample all of those sweets!

Domestic exercise

Whether you are slaving away in the kitchen or shoveling snow all day, you can pack in a powerful body boost right under your own roof. You can burn extra calories with a few extra moves while you are cooking . You can also work in a work out by shoveling snow, raking leaves or any other household activity that gets you moving. You’ll stay in shape and be an enviable domestic diva.

Dine wisely

Heading to a dinner party? Make sure to munch on healthy treats like nonfat yogurt or fruit beforehand so you don’t show up starving. Skipping snacks earlier in the day may make you eat more later, which can easily lead to weight gain. And when you’re choosing what to chow down, go the healthier options like brighter veggies (they’re more vitamin-packed) and avoid heavy cream sauces. When you hit the dessert table, satisfy your sweet tooth with small slices or samplings of pies, cakes and cookies.

5 Facts You MUST Understand if You Are Ever Going to Lose Your Belly Fat and Get Six Pack Abs

5. Ab belts, ab-rockers, ab-loungers, and other infomercial ab-gimmicks... they're all a complete waste of your time and money.
