Last week I shared 2 tips to help you stay fit during the holidays. You can refresh yourself here if you’d like.
The holidays [now] are a GREAT time to take your fitness to the next level. If you are like a lot of people who are thinking “I’ll just wait until January” … STOP IT.
Here’s 3 reasons you should stay committed to your fitness over the holidays:
- We are getting fatter. EVERY OTHER PERSON in the U.S. is overweight, so the problem with “letting yourself go” during the holidays is that you probably won’t bounce back the way you would like. Most people will quit their 2016 fitness plan by March. If that’s true, where will that put you by this time next year?
Here’s the truth: Gaining weight is more of a habit than it is an event. Habits are hard to break, so don’t build the habit of letting yourself go during the holidays.
- Holidays happen all year, not just during the “holiday season.” Think about it, how often you have lost your fitness mojo due to a “holiday?” You were doing great until you took that vacation, went to your reunion, your best friend’s bachelorette party, Labor Day weekend, July 4th weekend, your birthday, the parents anniversary, that office party, the Chargers game, Superbowl, National chocolate day, hotdog day, that week you traveled for work. Am I making my point? There’s ALWAYS a reason. If you have a habit of skipping workouts, it will accumulate. If you want to be in shape, look and feel good, you’ve got to find a way to have fun and stay on track to YOUR goal, at the same time. They happen simultaneously, not one at a time.
Embrace this and you’ll get and stay in the best shape of your life.
- Working out during the holidays will give you momentum in January. As I mentioned above, it’s HARD to break bad habits, and, it’s hard to create fitness momentum. While everyone else is STRUGGLING to start their fitness plan in 2016, you will already be rocking with your fitness and able to focus on other things that are important to you, instead of struggling to get back into shape.
Bottom line is that the fat-gain season is HERE. With a little mindfulness, you can avoid gaining weight this year.
If you’d like my help, we are going to help a small group of people actually lose weight over the holidays this year, with our Fit NOT Fat Holiday Challenge. You can get all of the details above, or, by responding to this.
I’d say the Fit NOT Fat Challenge is for you if you have gained weight in the past and are worried about gaining weight again. In other words, you are ready for a change.
Enjoy your day!
