How to get back into shape after the holidays and kick start your wellness in the New Year!
Here are some great tips this month for getting back in shape and keep the fitness ball rolling after the holidays…
The Christmas and New Year period can put a serious dent in the progress you have made towards your weight control goals.
If you’ve completely dropped the ball, it can be hard to get back into the swing of things. Here are some ways to put yourself back on the right track.
Sign up for a new class
The start of the year is the perfect time to add something new to your fitness routine. Put your name down for an activity you haven’t tried before such as pilates, dragon boat racing or boxercise. Convince a friend to come along and get in on the fun with you.
Keep your goals small
So many of us fail to meet our new year’s resolutions because we only think of the big picture. Instead of swearing you’re going to drop four dress sizes over the next twelve months, promise yourself you’re going to get to a point where you feel comfortable in the clothes that you have. Once you reach that milestone you can set yourself a new goal and keep working towards it.
Clean out your pantry
The less temptation you have at home, the more likely you are to stay on track with your weight control goals. Re-gift those goodies you were presented with at Christmas time or donate them to a local food charity. Out of sight, out of mind and a good deed at the same time!
Finally, here’s the ultimate secret to getting back in shape after the holidays:
Don’t get out of shape in the first place!
The break is all about food, wine and good cheer, but that doesn’t mean you have to abandon your exercise routine or let go of the good habits you have worked so hard to establish.
Set aside some time to work out between all the festivities, even if it is with a little less vigour than usual.
If you’re heading away from home, throw in your sports wear and book some activities that will keep you moving. The holidays are the perfect time for discovering the joys of hiking, stand up paddle boarding or even something more adventurous like cross country mountain biking.
