The holiday parties are starting to pile up and, most likely, so are the extra pounds. Here are some tips on how to keep the holiday bulge at bay while still being festive.
Preparation is Key
If you know that there’s a holiday party coming up on the weekend, set some time aside to plan your daily meals. Eating regularly and staying hydrated is crucial. If you prepare weekly you can enjoy all of the festivities guilt free.
Spend 15 minutes of your day moving. Something as simple as walking the dog, running with a friend or yoga will get your heart rate up and metabolism going. Find a pal who will support you even through the cold days to make it that bit easier.
Ditch the Sugary Drinks & Mixers
Try having your vodka straight up with a twist rather than masking it with mixers high in carbs and sugar. The trick to is that there is no need to mask a harsh tasting vodka when you use a good quality clean brand such as Broken Shed.
