The holiday season is a time to celebrate with family and friends. Unfortunately, it’s also a time when any people eat too much and gain weight. Of course you can control whether you overeat or allow yourself to gain weight.
With the holidays upon us, many of us are too busy to eat healthy, due to lack of time to prepare or even shop for food.Thanks to PN Nutrition, I can share the following chart with you, helping YOU eat better and plan better.Happy Holidays. Heike Yates
Holiday fitness survival guide is our topic of discussion for today. This time of year has different challenges that compete with our motivation to exercise. The change of the season with it being darker longer is a challenge to our exercise time. The holiday shopping we do is a challenge to our exercise time. Also, holiday parties and spending more time with our families is another challenge to our exercise time.
It's a crazy time of year! Celebrations, shopping, food, food and more food! Sometimes the last thing we think about is ourselves. It's times like these when focusing on your well being is vital. I am not suggesting a full out detox but just small ways to keep yourself sane during the holiday season. Here are 6 easy SMALL things you can do during this busy time of year.
1) Take an Epsom salt bath: nothing fancy just 1-2 cups of plain Epsom salts to a warm tub. Ok if you want to indulge a bit add 10 drops of your favorite essential oil.
It all starts around the Thanksgiving time and, well, does not end until a few days after the New Year. Season parties, sometimes two a night, all the frenzy of gift-buying, sending the cards – be it by the snail mail or in their electronic version – while trying to manage our usual daily lives and duties… Our days have not enough of hours, our nutrition slacks and the first thing to “go” and not happen is your daily visit to the gym or your daily walk.A recipe for physical and mental disaster.
Eat, drink, and be merry. It’s that time of year again. So before we kick off this month and a half marathon of good times and overindulging, let me weigh in with 5 practical steps you can take between now and New Year’s Eve to minimize set backs and help you to maintain your fitness this holiday season.
