Beating Holiday Weight Gain

Thanksgiving Day Run/Walk

The Holiday season is a hard time to watch what we eat and to find the time to workout!  But I can't tell you enough how IMPORTANT it is to PLAN an exercise schedule for the season AND a plan for eating as healthy as you can and making your recipes as healthy as possible!

It will help you have more energy for this stressful time of year AND it will actually help you REDUCE your stress!  When we take care of ourselves it not only benefits us but everyone in your family and those (friends) that are around you!

I am so proud of everyone that made it out for our Thanksgiving Run/walk!  It was great to see you!!!  Great job to those that were not able to make it but still exercised on Thanksgiving!

I know it doesn't sound like much but the average American gains a little over a pound over the Holiday Season but it does add up.  At that rate, a 20-year-old who weighs 130 pounds may weight 148 at age 30, 166 at age 40, 184 at age 50 and 202 at age 60. And researchers now believe you can blame it on that pumpkin pie, dressing with gravy, gingerbread cookies and eggnog.

With more than half of American adults being overweight, it's important to do what you can to avoid holiday weight gain.

It is proven that those who exercise during the Holiday Season do not gain weight!  Again, I know it is hard to always get your normal routine in but you can do things like- take a walk around the neighborhood to look at the lights, go ice skating, play fun games with your kids.

We're off

Getting plenty of sleep will help with stress and having enough energy to workout!  It will also help you not overeat!
Great job moms! 

Keep up the great work this Holiday Season with exercising and choosing healthy foods the majority of the time! 

I hope everyone had a Happy Thanksgiving and a very Merry Christmas!
