Exercising During The Holiday Season.

Santa 5. Drink plenty of water: Many times we will overeat because we are dehydrated and thirsty. Therefore, make sure that your water intake is adequate. Besides, water also gives you a sense of fullness so if properly hydrated you will be consuming less food.

6. Eat a balance of macro nutrients: Do not cut out any food groups as you will most likely be hungry and eat foods that your body doesn't really need. If you are hungry, fill up on protein and veggies as protein increases your metabolism by up to 20% and veggies take more calories to digest than what they contain.

7. Use Moderation: Allow yourself to indulge a little here and there, but limit your portions. Try to eat your regularly scheduled meals.

Don't wait until January 1st to set your New Year's Resolution; set it today. Start off 2012 feeling great! Stay active, even if it is not your normal routine, and you will maintain or progress even during this time of year.

As we enter the holiday season, many of us stress out about gaining excess weight. You don't have to put your fitness goals on hold until the New Year. If you find it challenging to maintain your exercise routine during the holidays, adjust appropriately. Many people use the excuse, "since I don't have time for a full workout, I just won't workout at all". Instead, accept your limited availability and simply reduce the frequency and/or duration of your exercise. It's much better to cut your fitness time in half than to completely eliminate it. Create a plan for incorporating fitness and good nutrition into your daily routine. Evaluate your holiday schedule and then determine how much time you will realistically have available to devote to working out and/ or eating healthy meals.

Here are some great tips for staying healthy and fit throughout the holidays

1. Schedule your workouts. Mark them on the calendar and set-aside time to complete them. Consider them as important as any other appointment or event you have marked on your calendar.

2. Make yourself a goal to do something active each day: It might not be your average workout, but try to get out and move for at least 30 minutes. The Holiday's Workout Routine offered in this site may be a good plan for you to try if you know in advance that you do not want to train more than 3 times a week through the Holiday Season.

3. Mix up your workouts: How many times have you thought "I'm so bored with my workouts?" You need to make sure that you are staying excited about your journey toward a healthier lifestyle. One of the most effective ways to keep motivated during your workouts is to try new things. Instead of jumping on the elliptical machine everyday for 4 months why not try rowing one day, biking the next, and hiking the next. Changing the exercises you do not only keeps your body guessing, which is great for getting more fit, but it also keeps your mind excited, which helps you get to the gym on those tough days

4. Limit your alcohol consumption: you are better off eating an extra cookie than consuming numerous cocktails. Excess alcohol just contributes too much to fat gain.
