Ghouling Ghosts, Turkey Gobblers and Chubby Santas: Beware

Holidays and school events, birthdays and special occasions overwhelm the buzzing months of October, November, and December. Rushing to and fro, fulfilling obligations to committees and impromptu events that require your expertise and/or participation. Your eagerness for the holidays has you RSVPing to multiple parties months in advance, with little thought of time or your availability. A holiday sensory overload occurs, after you attend your fifth Halloween part. However, you have little time to consider this, as you know you have a dozen other holiday parties to attend in the next three months.

Before you know it, time has elapsed. While, you run around like a turkey with your head cut off, you realize two weeks has gone by without a workout. Your gym membership keychain begins to mock you, as you nosh on leftover Halloween candy. The dress you hope to wear New Year’s Eve hugs tightly around your middle, causing you to regret that second piece of pumpkin pie. The only item that fits you the day after New Year’s Eve is your grandmother’s knitted Christmas sweater that is the perfect blend of tacky and bulk.

To the super womans and super mans out there who have the willpower of Jillian Michaels to say no to goodie, and find ease in finding time to work out, I take my hat off to you. For those who do not posses this super power or an energizer bunny quality, you are not alone.

In the following blog posts, you will be assisted and reminded of well-known fitness tips, as well as some lesser known hacks that will beat the bulge and allow you to indulge. These will not be get-thin quick schemes but will be simple and achievable tips for the average Joe and Jane.

All you need is a willingness to be creative and ready to go against the grain of holiday season norms.

Here’s to good health!
