So, ready for a last-minute fitness blitz to get you all ready for the Christmas holidays. Here are some great tips that can help you stay in shape, no matter how much turkey you eat!
Forget The Cheat Days
Cheat days are what we all look forward to. It’s that one day of the week when we can eat what we want without any regrets! However, now that Christmas is less than four weeks away, it’s worth knocking your cheat days on the head for the time being. Spend the coming weeks eating really healthily so that you can easily achieve your weight goal for the festivities. Just think – the Christmas holidays are going to be like one big cheat week so you can eat all your favorite treats then!
Get A Personal Trainer
Even if you pride yourself on being a gym bunny and regularly go, it’s still worth thinking about getting a personal trainer to help you this month. Let them know what your goals are, and they will be able to create a workout routine that will target your problem areas. Not only that, though, but most personal trainers will also help you devise a food plan that can help you further with your fitness and weightloss goals!
Eat Your Largest Meal At Lunch
You should have one meal a day that is larger than the other two. Most people tend to eat their largest meal in the evenings. However, as you are watching your weight, it’s a better idea to have yours at lunchtime. You should make sure that there are plenty of complex carbohydrates in this meal as well. This ensures that you have plenty of time to burn off all the calories from it throughout the day. It will also keep you full until well into the evening when you can have a light dinner.
Prep Your Meals In Advance
One of the main reasons why people end up cheating on their healthy eating plan is that they haven’t done much meal prep in advance. It really is worth reviewing some menu ideas for the week ahead and batch cooking some dishes if you have the chance. That way, you won’t have to rely on unhealthy takeaways and ready meals after a busy day at the office!
Seeing as Christmas is just around the corner, there’s no reason you should give up on all your healthy eating plans and fitness programmes. There’s even more reason you should get in shape for the festive party season that’s almost here!
