Late November may not exactly be your favourite time of year. Conversations based around snow tires can really wear you down as we embrace for winters cold spell. No matter how you feel about winter, you have to appreciate that the holidays are just around the corner!
Regardless of the holiday you celebrate, the end of the calendar year is time for celebration, friends and family! Of course, all of that holiday cheer doesn’t come without repercussions. Perhaps you don’t exactly ‘enjoy’ seeing your 2nd cousins, and we can all relate to the relative that talks too much at family dinners.
Between the drinks, the meals and the celebrations, it’s no secret that the holidays, although magical, don’t exactly help our physiques. It’s time for celebrations and indulgences! Many of us look forward to spending time with friends and family, or at the very least, taking some time to ourselves.
Throughout all the excitement and commotion, it’s easy to give in to temptation and simply ‘worry about it later’ when it comes to our diets. That’s what new year resolutions are for right?
Wrong! If you have been watching your weight or better yet, are actively working out as part of a fitness plan, now is an especially important time of the year to maintain your fitness efforts. There are still a few weeks until the holidays start, and while it’s easy to start giving in to temptation, the HouseFit team of personal trainers are here with a reminder that you shouldn’t wait until 2019 to get started on those New Years resolutions.
Start With a Fitness Plan
How many times a week you plan on working out isn’t as important when compared to the numbers of weeks you regularly work out. Follow? There are many benefits to regular physical activity, and you want to work your plan around that concept.
You need to train your body for change, and nothing happens overnight. Crash course diets and juice cleanses are not permanent, or necessarily healthy weight loss solutions. Put a plan in place that will give you a several weeks of regular diet to let the benefits have an effect.
The point is, don’t worry if you can only go 3 or 2 times a week to the gym. Make sure you’re going to go workout on a regular basis for a few weeks, making it a great time to put in some efforts right before the holidays!
Legendary DJ Calvin Harris recently became a part time model one could say, as headlining the top music festivals would be his full time job, modeling for Armani Underwear is a side job he has done recently after developing his own fitness plan. “Since moving to LA, Harris has reportedly been able to focus on healthy eating, and staying fit, thanks to a healthier variety of food options and the odd cheeky pilates workout” Check out his Instagram account to see the evidence of his efforts. It’s proof you can juggle temptation with a healthy lifestyle!

Try To Control Your Intake*
We had to put as asterisks on this one. There is no denying that you should indulge and enjoy yourself during the holidays.
The key is portion control. One size serving of meat is small handful, and chances are that when you sit down for that family feast, you’re eating enough for a couple of people. By controlling your portions, you can still enjoy the food and drinks, but in a controlled amount.
One element of the big feast that is easier to control is the amount of sugar drinks. In case you’re not aware, soda and alcohol contain a lot of sugar. There’s a good chance those cookies you love so much from grandma are also pretty high on the sugar count.
