Keeping Up With the Holiday Workouts

Ready or not... the holidays are here!  With all the to-do-lists we have to get ready for the holidays, it's hard to squeeze in that workout.  Here are a few tips to keep you on track with your fitness goals.

1 - Put it on the calendar - Take a few minutes to plan out your week with workouts you are going to do, and write them on your calendar.

2 - Get it done! - Workout first thing in the morning.  Our will power is stronger in the morning so we are less likely to let other things step in the way of our workout.

3 - Grab a buddy - Find a friend to workout with and check in with them daily.  You are less likely to skip a workout if you have to be accountable to someone else.

4 - Plan for travel - If you have to travel get your workout in before you leave.  Find a place to workout at your destination or pack weights, bands, and athletic shoes in your luggage to do a quick workout while you are away.

5 - A little is better than nothing - Get some sort of exercise in.  30 minutes of walking is better than nothing.  Run up the stairs in the hotel instead of walking or taking the elevator.

With all the feasting, shopping, party-going, family obligations, and year end budgeting exercise can be hard to fit it.  Make it a priority and stay motivated.  Good luck!
