Surviving the Holidays Without Weight Gain

By November 20, 2013

Follow me on:

With Thanksgiving and Christmas on the horizon, you probably don't have much time to worry about your weight. Yet, it's always in the back of your mind as you face the parties, the goodies, all those cookies and sweets those people give out at Costco at the precise moment your blood sugar has taken a dive and you become certain you cannot survive the store without trying that double fudge peanut butter brownie thing that comes already prepared and is being handed to you by that nice, smiling lady in the hairnet.

Maybe you should try two, just to be sure you don't like it.

You'll need to get creative to fit in exercise and my survival guide may offer some ideas you hadn't thought of. Check out some of the other resources below for more ideas and then tell us how you stay on track during the holidays. Do you stick with your normal routine or do you wing it?

It’s all about not making excuses. It’s easy to say “I didn’t have time” when really, ten minutes is all you have to have. Who doesn’t have ten minutes? Anyone reading this article has ten minutes- borrow the ten minutes from the time we spend on the computer.

It seems people can’t go a day without checking email, blogs, forums… For me, I can’t go a day sitting on my butt knowing I could have made time.

Good tips for the bodyweight workouts in your link! I’m a big fan of them for when I travel for work.
