Commit to fitness.  Be in  

it for the long haul.

 

Even during the holiday season, when other commitments tend to take over your life, schedule time for your exercise and fitness.  Two or three times a week,

get out and do

something physical.

 

Think of exercise as a 

life-long habit and commitment.

Naughty or Nice?  Which List Are You On?

 

"He's making a list, checking it twice, he's gonna find out Santa With List who's naughty or nice"

 

Which list do you think you should be on?  With respect to your health and fitness, have you been "naughty" (missed your fitness workouts, ate too much junk food, drank too much) all year or, have you been "nice"?  It's time to fess up and pay the piper!  And, remember, when it comes to list-making, Santa doesn't make mistakes.  As mentioned above, he always double-checks his work!  So, be honest.

 

Have you ever wanted to have something to say about which list you belong on?  Well, here's the great news, you actually do have a choice!  But, being "nice" simply to win Santa's favour, and an accompanying stack of presents, is not why we should be "nice".  We should be "nice" (at least health and fitness-wise) because it's good for us!

 

You can choose to be fit and healthy.  You can choose to eat nutritious, organic foods.  You can choose to limit (or even eliminate) your intake of "junk" food.  You can choose to get a proper amount of exercise every week.

 

I believe that it's important to be "nice" to yourself all year long, not just during the holiday season.  Unfortunately, this is the season that, for some, is the hardest to maintain their "niceness" with respect to their health and fitness goals.  Workouts get missed because of other social commitments.  Nutrition takes a back seat to holiday treats and snacks.

 

Relaxing In A Hammock Lots of folks travel, either home to visit relatives or on vacation to someplace warmer.  But, how do you stay on task when you enter almost every mini-mart or gas station on your trip and you're immediately inundated with a TON of junk food?  It's right there in front of you when you walk in the door. They wouldn't be carrying all this junk food, in so many varieties, if there weren't customers purchasing it. Don't be one of those travellers!  Whatever the reason, if you're trying to maintain your health and fitness while on the road this holiday season, it's a good idea to have a plan, when stopping for gas, to figure out how to deal with the onslaught of brightly colored packages calling your name. Pre-pack some healthy, good-for-you, snacks.

 

If you're staying home, but attending numerous parties, you can still maintain your healthy eating habits. Knowing which foods are naughty is only half the battle. When eating at parties, pile your plate with lower-fat foods to limit the high calorie splurge.  Choose whole grains, such as wild rice and quinoa. Load up on plain or lightly dressed vegetables, meat or poultry without gravy, lightly dressed salad greens and fresh fruit. Help yourself resist temptation by  engaging in conversation to slow the pace of eating, sit far from the buffet table and excuse yourself from the dinner table once you've had enough to eat.  Remember, eating regular meals and snacks, every day, makes it easier to resist going overboard at festive events.  When necessity does cause you to skimp on meals because of all of the holiday runaround, plan ahead and take along a protein-packed snack.

 

If, for some reason, you do "slip" in your commitment to fitness and nutrition during this holiday season, don't focus on it too much.  Get back to your healthier lifestyle as early as possible in the New Year.  Choose to be "nice" to yourself!  Join us for our "New Year - New You!" promotion (see the side panel).  We'll get you focused on being "nice" again. 

 

Santa

Merry Christmas everyone!  Enjoy the holidays and we'll see you all in the New Year!

Nutrition Tip

 

Seasonal parties can make it difficult for you to maintain your healthy eating lifestyle.  Too often, most of the choices offered are fatty, sugary treats and the temptation will be there to indulge.

 

Well, go ahead.  BUT, don't overdo it and blow everything.  Allow yourself no more than two of those delicious treats you crave, and fill up the rest of your plate with healthy fruits and vegetables.
