Don't Lose Your Momentum During the Holidays

It can be easy to lose momentum or find yourself off track with your health and fitness goals during the cold and vacation season. Athletic Republic Parkland has a short post with ways you can stay on track during the period.

Create a New Routine

If you know that, realistically, you can’t keep up with your regular routine during the holiday period or when it’s cold, instead of fooling yourself into thinking that you can and simply failing and giving up on your entire routine, adjust it. For example:
  • If you can’t get out of bed for a morning workout, rearrange your daily routine and accommodate a lunch or evening session.
  • If time is limited during the season, consider reducing your workout schedule, but not stopping it entirely.
  • When you go on vacation, instead of counting the entire time as a cheat meal, bring along some protein shakes or meal replacements which you can mix into the enormous amounts of food you and your family will likely enjoy.
The important thing is that you don’t stop because you can’t do everything.

Travel Workouts

If you are traveling to visit family and friends, look for gyms in the area which allow per-session memberships and complete some of your routines during your downtime. Of course, you will want to spend time with the people you are visiting, but there will be times when you just want a break, and working out can be a great relaxation technique to help you clear your mind. Similarly, if you enjoy cardio, search social media for local walking or running groups in the areas you will be visiting. Not only can these be a great way to keep up with your exercise but you will also get a small tour of the area with some locals.
