Beat the Holiday Bloat 

Hey sweet fitness friends…just wanted to post some notes on beating the holiday bloat. 

During the holidays it’s easy to pack on the pounds. There’s cake everywhere! Egg nog, pumpkin everything, and if we aren’t careful January hits and we are ten pounds heavier. Yikes. 

Here are some things I’m going to try. 

Sweets only on the weekends in moderation. Tiny portions. 

Increased water intake. 

Increased veggie consumption. 

Resistance training (muscle burns more calories than fat)

Portion control. Get a smaller plate! 

Eating 6 small meals a day. 

Finding places to walk! Parking further away until it snows. 

Circuit training! Interval training keeps the body on its toes. 

Keeping the main thing, the main thing. It’s about health. 

Reminding myself it’s much harder to lose than to gain. 3,500 calories equals 1 pound. Yikes! 

I hope you’re able to stick with your fitness goals this fall/winter. I hope to post more now that summer is over! Stay focused. You can do this.
