6 Ways to Stay Fit This Holiday Season

Published

on

Are you worried that the holidays will ruin your diet—or worse, that your diet will ruin the holidays? This season brings lots of quality time with family and friends, wild holiday parties and plenty of thoughtful gifts, but let’s be real, the food is the best part. But is the stress of overindulging worth it?

Take a look at these tips if you want to enjoy everything the holidays have to offer without the added guilt.

Recruit a Workout Buddy

Sticking to a workout plan is hard anytime of year. Finding someone to workout with on a regular basis will help keep you accountable during the busy holiday season. If you don’t feel like waking up early and heading to the gym, the guilt of ditching your friend will be reason enough to show up anyway.

If you can’t find a buddy, sign up for a weekly class—preferably one that costs some money. The threat of wasting money should be motivation enough to get your ass in gear once a week. Whether the gym is on your daily to-do list or not, a weekly class will add some structure to your routine. It’s a great way to improve an aspect of your fitness that you may not be spending enough time on (cough yoga cough). Or, if you’re not a regular gym-goer in the first place, it’s a great way to get started!

Don’t Deprive Yourself

Don’t spoil a holiday party by trying to avoid the feast. It’s not worth the stress. Eat the food you want to eat, and stop when you’re full. Don’t feel obligated to fill your stomach with Aunt Joan’s famous fruitcake if you hate fruitcake.

But don’t let a holiday seep into the following days and turn into a holi-week. Your body can bounce back from a single day of indulgence. An entire week will be a bit more difficult. It’s important to jump right back on track after the party ends.

Tupp It Up

If you’re hosting a party, send your guests home with Tupperware containers full of leftovers. It’s virtually impossible to refuse leftovers when they’re the only things in your fridge. Eliminate the temptation altogether!

MEAL. PREP.

It’s not nearly as difficult or expensive as you may think. Choose a few easy recipes and prep a week’s worth of chicken, veggies, and snacks on Sunday. Having protein powder on-hand is a great way to combat hunger during the week to avoid losing sight of your goals. Sticking to a clean diet during the week will kill any guilt you might have about those extra hors d’oeuvres at the office holiday party.

Hit the Gym More Often

If you’re going to indulge every now and then, head to the gym and put those extra carbs to use. Lift heavy weights and give interval training a try. Doing intense periods of work with short recovery segments is a great way to burn fat fast. Just don’t use the extra workouts as an excuse to completely quit on your diet!

Stay Hydrated

Find a sturdy reusable water bottle, keep it filled, and bring it everywhere. Drinking enough water is a key part of staying fit and healthy, especially when the rest of your diet isn’t exactly pristine. Replace sugary drinks with tea or seltzer and alternate between booze and glasses of water at parties.

Doesn’t sound too hard, right? Stay the course and enjoy the holidays! Head into 2018 without feeling sluggish, guilty or weighed down—it could impact your outlook for the rest of the year.

James Bond Will Stay A Male Character In Future Franchises

James Bond will always be a man on screen.

Rumors have been swirling on what the next iteration of the character would be after Daniel Craig leaves the role. Reports had Emily Blunt attached in gender swap of the character.

Bond producer Barbara Broccoli put an end to all of those rumors.

“Bond is male. He’s a male character. He was written as a male and I think he’ll probably stay as a male And that’s fine. We don’t have to turn male characters into women. Let’s just create more female characters and make the story fit those female characters.”

Production has been pushed back to March of 2019. The film will now be released on February 14th, 2020.

Top Gun Sequel Pushed Back A Year

Tom Cruise’s Top Gun sequel is been officially moved.

Top Gun: Maverick was originally set to hit theaters on July 12, 2019. Now the movie will instead be released on June 26, 2020. Paramount announced move was due to technical issues pushing back production.

This might be a great move for the film to get out the crowded 2019 July slot. Spider-Man: Far from Home will be released on July 5th. Followed by the live action version of Disney’s The Lion King on July 19th.

Director Joesph Kosinski gave some details on what fans can expect for the sequel.

“The navy is very different now than it was in 1986,” said Kosinski. “It’s just a different world now, so you can’t remake the first movie. It has to adapt, [but] I certainly want to re-create the experience of that movie, which gives you a front seat into the world of naval aviation and what it’s like to be in a fighter jet.”

Top Gun: Maverick is scheduled for release on July 12, 2019.
