17 Tips to Avoid Holiday Weight Gain
13. Make your holiday traditions active ones. Play a game of touch football before Thanksgiving dinner. Hike out in to the woods to chop down your own Christmas tree. Spend an afternoon walking through your neighborhood to sing carols to your neighbors. Invite your whole family to play a game called “shoveling snow.” Your kids will love it.
14. Kick up the exercise. Even if you aren’t TOO concerned with significant holiday weight gain, you know you are definitely going to indulge more around this time of year, so step it up a notch. Do an extra 10 minutes, one mile or add a day to your workout schedule to keep everything in check.
15. Work out in the morning. With everyone out of school, off work, visiting and traveling, your days are going to be unpredictable. Working out in the morning ensures it gets done, plus you’ll have lasting energy to dominate those Black Friday crowds.
