Battle Holiday Cravings to Maintain Healthy Body

It's the most wonderful time of the year! Yes, indeed. Everybody is in a rush this holiday season and since there are a list of errands to accomplish, meetings and dinner to attend to, people to catch up with and gifts to buy; we all skip the usual exercises for a healthy body.

This is what happens usually when the year comes to an end and approaches a brand new year. All the hard work we have done to maintain a great figure and healthy body is put on pedestal because of the holiday rush. Come new year, majority of us fall prey on the so-called "revolutionary" method of losing weight and staying fit. This attitude have become a habit and it does more harm to us than good. The exercise routine of the previous year is easily forgotten and we allow ourselves to divert focus on what's new since "new" is said to be better. We then blame it to the several parties and dinner we attended to but we have nobody else to blame but ourselves.

Why not maintain the healthy w! ay of staying fit? Bodybuilders need to give more focus on this matter because it is not an ideal pattern of building muscles and maintaining it. If you can help it, plan your day or week ahead before it happens. This way, you will know what to expect and have the courage to say no to another helping.

To avoid the rush of the day, do exercises in the morning when everything is calm and laid back. Be sure though that your morning does not mean 9 or 10 am. Wake up early enough to compete ahead of the day's demands so you can enjoy your morning exercises well.

Since the rush hour is going to take longer than expected this holiday, you really don't have the time to drive all the way to the gym. Not a problem, you can create a home gym where you can do all your set of exercises and reps freely.

And at parties or dinner, to avoid eating too much; you may want to eat ahead of the event. Eat what you need for the day so you feel full when you get to the venue and ! don't stuff your tummy with too much calories. This way, you d! on't hav e to refuse an invitation and still, enjoy your nights with friends. Discipline yourself and be wise enough to know what you are facing the holiday so by next year, you have nothing to regret.
