Don’t Fall Into the “Phantom Zone” Of Fitness This Holiday Season!

The leftover turkey isn’t even cold when we start cranking the Christmas music, scheduling holiday parties, and shopping for perfect gifts.

And the food -- Oh the food. All of our favorite holiday flavors are out on parade. From gingerbread-flavored everything and cookie assortments to cheesy appetizers and bacon-wrapped entrees.

The rest of the year, we say, “I’m watching what I Eat and Exercising,” but this month, we announce with confidence and a mouthful of sugar cookie, “It’s the holidays!” And we’re so right. It is the holidays and it’s okay to cheat a little. But, you don’t have to throw away 11 months of progress in the 25 days before Christmas.

Here, are few tips on how to fully enjoy the holiday season without starting the New Year off with pounds to lose.

1. Exercise in the morning to avoid scheduling conflicts: The holidays are an exceptionally busy time for most of us. Between the parties, out-of-town trips, and time spent at the mall, it can be difficult to fit in your regular exercise time. However, maintaining your routine is critical to avoiding holiday weight gain. If possible, opt to workout in the morning. Doing so will reduce the risk that your busy holiday schedule will keep you out of the gym. A morning workout will also set the tone for your day. You’re more likely to resist the random cookie or treat if you’ve started your day in a healthy way.

2. Hydrate to curb your eating: Many times, dehydration can trigger hunger pangs. Drinking water not only reduces dehydration-related cravings, it can also curb overeating. Before you indulge in a holiday meal or dip into the appetizers, drink a glass or two of water. The water will help you feel fuller faster, meaning you eat fewer calories.

In a study conducted by researchers at the University of Birmingham in the U.K., obese participants were asked to drink 16 ounces of water 30 minutes before each meal. After 12 weeks, the volunteers lost nearly 10 pounds each, on average. While it may not be your goal to lose weight, but rather maintain through the holidays, drinking more water is likely to help.

3. Plan ahead to stay in control: You’ve heard the expression, “If you fail to plan, plan to fail.” This certainly holds true when it comes to maintaining your level of fitness during the holidays. It can be easy to take the “all-or-nothing” approach when it comes to diet and exercise. But, don’t binge and be lazy throughout the whole month of December, or you’ll be sorry in January. Take control of your workouts and cheat in moderation. 

If you know you have extra commitments on the calendar or you’re traveling for the holidays, mark these dates and plan accordingly. Schedule every workout for the month of December and make it a point to stay on track. It might be helpful to give yourself a couple floating rest days so you don’t feel like a failure if you simply can’t make it to the gym.  And remember, traveling, if planned out right, even though you're on the road, or on a plane, you can still make use of just walking around and taking in some of the sites before you need to arrive at your committed festivities.  Using an Activity Monitor during all the busy rushing around is a great way to keep you motivated and tracking your movements, or lack there of, in order to remind you to get moving. One great Activity Monitor is the Fitbit Charge  Everyone needs some reminders to keep themselves on track and with the Fitbit Charge, the only thing you need to remember is to keep it fastened to your wrist!

When it comes to your diet, set guidelines for yourself, you know you’ll be indulging. Plan your cheat meals around the days when you know you’ll be dipping into some extra indulgent apps or drinks. To help you stay in control, set some limits for yourself before filling your plate. For example, resolve to put just three of your favorite foods on your plate.This will keep your cheat meal from turning into an all-night binge. 

4. Make a pact to stay motivated: During the holidays, it can feel like you’re the only one trying to stay on track. Watching everyone else pig-out or stay couch-bound will likely make it easier for you to follow suit. Be accountable to a fit friend or family member during the month of December. Encourage each other to enjoy your favorite treats, but in moderation and maintain your exercise routines, the best you can. When you’re visiting family or friends, try asking them to exercise with you!

5. Don’t avoid the scale: When you feel yourself slipping with diet or exercise, it can be all-to-easy, to dump your resolve until after you ring in the New Year. Instead of packing away your scale to avoid the guilt, continue to monitor your progress throughout December. If you see the numbers rising or see your muscle tone fading, don’t body shame, but do use it as a reality check to make some changes. Increase your water intake, be vigilant with your exercise, and eat a few more salads that week to help you get back on track.

6. Stock healthy snacks in the house and on the go: A house full of sweet treats and high-calorie foods will test anyone’s willpower, especially if your stomach is already growling. Make it a point to stock your fridge, car, and workspace with healthy options that you can grab easily when you’re craving some holiday snacks. Satisfy your hunger first, then if you want to cheat just a little, go for it!

7. Bring healthy treats to the party: When it's your turn to bring the goodies, don’t be afraid to bring some green. You can stick with an easy veggie tray or fruit plate, or get creative with healthy spring roll bites or cauliflower breadsticks. This way, you know you’ll have at least one healthy option to fill-up on at the party. Remember, for this the internet is your friend!  There are hundred of tasty, healthy foods that will still give you that crunch, just not the calories that go along with a bowl of dips and chips!

8. Set a challenge: The turkey trots may be over, but you’re likely to find a candy cane run or Santa dash near you. Make a 5k or 10k a holiday tradition with family and friends! It will help you burn off extra calories and motivate you to keep up with your training. Not sure where to find a race? Did I not mention the internet is your friend??

9. Fill up on the good stuff: When you’re indulging in holiday meals, fill most of your plate with lean proteins and veggies (FYI: green bean casserole and fried onions don’t count as veggies). Cut the hunger pangs with the healthier options and then reach for your high-calorie favs. You’ll end up feeling more satisfied and less guilty at the end of the meal. Pairing the carb-laden goodies with healthier proteins will also help keep your blood sugar in check, which means you’ll reach for fewer leftovers later on.

10. Limit alcohol: It might be difficult to resist the big bowl of spiked eggnog and warm-you-to-the-core hot toddies, but make alcoholic drinks like these the treat, not the norm. These winter warmers can contain upwards of 500 calories each.

Even if you’re enjoying the low-cal drink options like vodka sodas, the alcohol can lower your inhibitions, which means you’re more likely to snack on higher calorie foods or reach for holiday leftovers a bit too soon.

11. Have a backup plan: It’s a good idea to plan your workout schedule for the entire month of December, always come prepared with a backup plan. If you didn’t anticipate skipping the gym, you can still get in a great workout just about anywhere -- even if you’re short on time. Be prepared for kinks in your workout schedule, but remember, things do happen and in the long run its worth the effort to think things through so you can have the time you need to get your workouts in.

The average person gains 1-2 pounds during the holidays and doesn’t ever lose it -- but you don’t have to be “average.” Maintain your weight or even shed a couple pounds this holiday season by tightening your routines and remaining accountable to your diet goals.
This way, you won't be making the same New Year's resolution again once that "Ball" drops!  Happy Holidays

Keeping Your Morning Workout On-Track in the Fall Season.

Ok, it’s now November and the seasons are starting to change over to Fall and Winter  is not too far away, in fact, this Sunday we will be putting our clocks back 1 hour here on the east coast. If you had trouble getting up in the morning when the sun started peeking through your window, just how much harder will it be for you when the moonlight is still shining bright at 5am?
Here below are a few tips and tricks to stop you from hitting the snooze button on your alarm clock and get you up, and your feet on the floor.

Remember those goals you made for yourself to get your body into the shape you would be proud of? Well get them out now and see just how well you are doing. Now be honest! Re-affirming those goals and committing to them can be part of the motivation you need to get you out of bed in the morning and hitting the gym or the local roads as you pile up the miles to a fitter you.

Are you tracking your progress and setting new milestones as you reach the old ones? Nothing works better than tracking your performance or lack thereof then an activity monitor. It doesn’t lie to you and you can’t ignore the fact that you’re not doing what you set out to do, exercise wise. The new Fitbit the Fitbit Charge 2 Activity Tracker HR 
can definitely “Fit” the bill for you. It can monitor all of your daily activities and provide you with the data, that (doesn’t cheat) lets you know just how well or poorly you’re doing. It even tracks your sleep to make sure you’re getting the proper amount so you can perform the next day the way you need to.

Make it as easy as you can to start your morning routine once that alarm goes off. Remember, it’s a lot easier and really better for you if you get that workout in, early in the morning than waiting till after your work day is done. There are way too many excuses for canceling that trip to the gym if you’ve had “one of those days” at the workplace. And studies have shown that exercising at the beginning of your day can set the mood for a more productive day and better overall outlook. Now doesn’t that just make having a protein shake while watching the morning news all worth it?

Eating Healthy, and that means at breakfast too. We’ve all heard the benefits of eating a good nutritious breakfast to get the body’s furnaces fueled up for the upcoming day. This is even more important when you’re going to be working out within the next hour or so. You don’t want to eat too heavy a breakfast before you exercise but you want to make sure you have the right carbs and some protein in you so you can perform at your best. There are plenty of breakfast examples out there on the web that you can try and see what works best for you. Don’t be afraid to consult with your physician or if you have one your dietitian. They can make a nutrition plan for you that will provide you with the best of what you need to eat.

Workout Clothes: Getting everything ready the night before, is a plus when you’re moving a bit slowly in the morning. Having your clothes right there when you open your eyes, in eye level will save time and energy in not having to fumble around picking out what you want to wear.

Getting a Workout Buddy: Is a great way to make sure you’re not going to hit the snooze button on your alarm clock. When you have a workout buddy that takes his or her’s exercise time seriously it makes you want to keep to your commitment to work out with them each day.
Naturally, this works the same for them as well. But its also a great time to stay caught up on each other’s lives and working as a team buddy, provides the opportunity to pace yourself against someone so you can give it that extra push.

Positive Thinking: This is a must for not just getting up to exercise but to also set the trend for how you’re going to react to your day. Positive thinking is key to a motivational morning workout. You will never want to get out of the bed and go to the gym when you’re thinking “ugh I don’t want to do this.” Try waking up, taking a deep breath, and thinking “this morning workout is going to be a great start to my day”!

Remember, these are just a few hint, tips, and tricks to help you embrace your morning workouts when the sun is still working its way up over the horizon. Bottom line, it’s all up to you. You need to want to do this and commit yourself to it. But if you start your day on this type of positive note and put your all into your exercise routine, you will find that the day may just go a little be smoother for you.
