From your friends at My Core Balance
We hope you have a wonderful holiday season. Go to those holiday parties (but not too many), eat some sweets (but not too much), stay up late (but not too late), and enjoy yourself (but not too much). Balance and moderation are the keys to staying healthy throughout this season.
I would like to share 5 simple tips with you to stay healthy during this season:
1. Prepare ahead of time
Rather than eating food supplied by a gas station or an airplane, pack some healthy options to take with you. Things such as protein bars, granola bars, and cut fruit or veggies are great. They are easy to transport and satisfying in a pinch.
2. Do not deprive yourself of indulgences
A little something here and there should be enough to satisfy you without going overboard. Many times, it is better to bend a little than to have a full breakdown.
3. Eliminate the "all or nothing" mentality
Just because you missed a workout does not mean you should just take the whole week off. If you miss a week, it does not mean you should take the whole month off. Trust me, it will catch up with you.
4. Be realistic over the holidays
Do not beat yourself up when you slip. Enjoy the holidays to the fullest and be happy with all of the good things in your life.
5. Pack your workout clothes when you travel
If you do not bring them, chances are you will not buy new gear just for your trip. Set yourself up to win!
We invite you to attend our open house on January 5 from 10:00 to 2:00. We will be offering a full list of classes to choose from, something for everyone! We hope that we can help you jump-start your healthy fitness routine in 2013.
We look forward to seeing you next year.
