5 Ways To Stay Healthy Over the Holidays

Don’t spend another holiday season in the deprivation doldrums. Set yourself up for long-term success with these five inspired tips from Health and Fitness Expert and Women’s Private Weight Loss Coach Stephanie Mansour.

Gift yourself some peace of mind from the stress of holiday weight gain with these fit hacks.

Cut Yourself a Deal

Learn to use If/When conditions for yourself.

Example:  If  you choose to go to happy hour after work and skip your scheduled workout, then you will set your alarm for five minutes earlier the next morning. When that alarm goes off, get up, put on your workout shoes, and perform 50 squats or simply jog in place, anything to get your heart rate up before you jump in the shower!

Hydrate Between Drinks

My private weight loss clients swear by these boozy tips for this time of year! (They still apply for mocktails too)

Sipping on hot cocktails? Order an ice cold glass of water after each drink.

Indulging in a cold boozy beverage? Order warm water with lemon between every cocktail.

Simple, right?

Work Off the Treats Before You Eat

Finding time to work out during the holidays can get tricky, but even just doing a little bit of a workout is better than nothing.

Know you’re heading to a party with your favorite baked goods? If you know you’re going to have a couple treats, figure out roughly how many extra calories you want to have. Then do a little workout to prepare for the snacking.

Example: One minute of squats or kettlebell swings burns around 25 calories. If you do four rounds of squats at one minute each, boom, you have an extra 100 calories to play with!

Late Night Temptations

An important part of losing weight and keeping it off is learning to recognize when you may have an incoming binge situation. Use the following weight loss tips to save yourself from regret.

Feeling the urge to reach for another cookie from the tray in your kitchen or an extra piece of fudge from the fridge? Before you do….

Try putting on hand lotion or painting your fingernails! I don’t know about you, but I don’t want to eat a cookie that tastes like lotion and freshly-painted nails means no picking anything up until they dry! This gives you a chance to move passed the momentary craving without over-indulging. Plus, now you have beautiful nails and/or are moisturized!

Make Micronutrients Mandatory

I incorporate this tip into all my weight loss programs for women, even though it’s the last on the list– it’s crucial!

Every night, no matter if you’ve eaten healthy or unhealthy the entire day, make eating a bowl of fruits or veggies a part of your routine.

Micronutrients are the essential vitamins and minerals found in food. Vegetables and fruits are super rich in them, so treat yourself to a large serving in the evenings and your body will thank you!
