It’s that time of year when most of our diets seem to come to a stand still, as we give into all the temptations around us. At the time it doesn’t seem like the extra mince tart and a bottle of wine will make all the difference, that’s for 2016 me to worry about right? Unfortunately, these little indulgences do add up and add to the Christmas bulge!
Did you know there are a few simple things you can do to stop the weight gain and keep that amazing figure you’ve been working on all year! Even the smallest changes you make in your daily behaviour can make all the difference, these changes can include:
Walk, walk, walk
The weather is beautiful this time of year in Australia, take advantage of it! Put your gym clothes on and go for a walk. Just 30 minutes on walking a day can make all the difference and you only have to get up 30 minutes earlier for it to not interrupt your daily activities.
Stick with your routine
If you already have an amazing exercise regime, there is no need to stop it! Plan your Christmas celebration around your exercise regime or do the early morning spin class. Whatever you do you want to keep your fitness so you you keep weight off and and make getting back into the new Year that little bit easier.
Don’t let stress get the best of you, even better use your exercise as an outlet for your stress! Exercise will release endorphins that improve your general happiness and provide feelings of relief.
Make a plan
Be organised this Christmas! Plan out your days (as best you can) during this busy period and always allow time to exercise! Using a weekly planner write out a to do list and allow time for these tasks, but make sure these tasks don’t interfere with you pre-planned exercise regime.
