You are busy, you are stressed, it is cold outside and you do not want to do anything more than you have to.
All of us can come up with any excuse to not take care of ourselves during the holidays. This will lead to extra pounds in the New Year. While shopping, getting ready for parties, take some time to stay motivated and disciplined so it is not quite so hard come January.
The holiday will most likely affect your exercise program. Start by taking a look at your schedule. Instead of trying to squeeze in exercise, take other things out. You have more to do, but you need to find time to do the right things for yourself. It is important to keep fitness a priority to our schedule. Maintaining a workout schedule is more important this time of the year than any.
Be flexible with your schedule when your day gets busy. If you have a party to go to after work, get up an hour early to exercise or walk during lunch. If you are in a time crunch, add exercise to your family commitments, sledding and skiing will provide you exercise while spending time with your family.
No matter the circumstance, your number one priority is to stay healthy all year round!!
