It’s that time of year again .. party season! I love this time of year but I admit that I have to work extra hard to make sure that I don’t overdo it. The scales and my clothes certainly show the “fruits of my labour” when I don’t keep a close reign on the food and drinks!
While it’s not necessarily the easiest time of year to lose weight, if you are committed and consistent … it is absolutely possible to maintain your health & fitness over this time with a little extra planning & effort.
Here are my tips to survive the party season and feel fabulous and ready for the new year! I’m not going to elaborate too much because the tips really are self explanatory
Exercise through the holidays …
Exercise early in the morning before the busy of the day gets out of control … you won’t feel like it later and that smug feeling knowing you have already done your workout is so motivating!
Get creative if you aren’t able to get in your usual workout … body weight & circuit type workouts you can do at home can be quick & incredibly effective. I post a workout each week that you can do at home and they are super quick so keep an eye out!
Don’t stress if you have to miss a workout because things are getting a little crazy. It can happen, I know it’s probably your sanity break so take a breath and make sure you make time for it the next day.
Choose bang for your buck workouts .. these are my favourite in busy times. They don’t take long and can certainly pack a punch! HIIT workout burns lots of calories fast and strength training doesn’t need to take hours to maintain muscle.
