It's here again - the time of year when all your diet and fitness regimens are put aside for the sake of enjoying food, fun, and fellowship with your loved ones.
After all the celebration and enjoyment is done, however, you'd be surprised how quickly all the hard work you put in to stay in shape goes down the drain. You'll probably smile and be convinced that it was all worth it, but now it's time to get back in shape.
Take advantage of these tried, tested, and proven tips to get back on track:
1. Increase water intake. You can't overlook the wonderful benefits of water to your body. Not only does it hydrate, but when consumed in recommended portions, it serves to flush the body and helps you eliminate any leftover toxins and free radicals from all those fat-heavy, calorie-dense Thanksgiving fares.
During the holiday season, physical health often takes a back seat. We're so busy with family and friends that we neglect our normal routine. That can leave you feeling run down, lethargic, and uninspired. The holidays are a time of good cheer and celebration. The good news is you can experience that joy and still manage to take care of your physical health.
Choose to make your physical health a priority during the holidays. Take the initiative because you're worth it, and your enjoyment of the holidays depends on it. A commitment to your health will lead you to find the time, and the time spent will provide enough energy and self-confidence to get you through the stressful parts of your holiday season.
Get the exercise that your body is used to and that it craves, so you can stay feeling alive. In the midst of all the holiday shopping, get-togethers with friends, and obligations, your workout must be a priority for you to succeed....
