Plan Your Exercise
Find out the opening hours of your gym and what classes are on during this time. If you know you have something on then plan your schedule. Change to go to the gym in the mornings if your evenings are busy!
Find a Fitness Buddy
This will help give you extra motivation whether it be a family member or friend. You will be more likely to go if you have made a commitment with someone else and you can make your sessions fun and help to push each other.
Eating and Drinking
This is where a lot of people lose track at this time of year. Eat in moderation. Increase your water intake to keep yourself hydrated and flush out all the toxins. Not only this but it will help muscles produce what is needed to prevent cramp and reduce the risk of fatigue. Try and get to the gym before you go out and try to be more conscious of the foods you are consuming before a heavy night out! Acohol is very high in calories! Making little changes like swapping milk chocolate for dark chocolate, lighter spirits and diet drinks and sodas will help! Try and have vodka, soda and lime (97 calories compared to rum and coke which is 130 calories).
Don’t Wait Until New Year
You will lose fitness and it will be so much harder to get back into fitness and makes January feel worse than it needs to be.
Keep Workouts Short and Sweet
A 30 minute hiit workout will burn fat, get a good sweat on and its better than nothing! Feel good hormones get released when we exercise. Endorphins make us feel good and motivated.
Don’t Skip Meals
This is where it leads to temptation and you are more likely to snack on sugary and high fat foods. Focus on fibre and protein.
Folow A Training Programme
This will mean you know exactly what you’re doing when you go in to the gym. Get something new and fresh and mix it up to keep it intersting and exciting.
Most of all enjoy and keep safe!
