4 Tips to Keep Exercise on Track for the Holiday

You'll Look Great in Your New Clothes!

I was at the mall yesterday doing some window shopping and there were plenty of shoppers looking for those special gifts to give at Christmas.

You may be hosting a Christmas dinner and need to make sure you have all the main dishes, sides, and desserts ready to hit the table when guests arrive.

In all the hustle and bustle of Christmas, one thing that often gets neglected is exercise. You’re too busy, it’s too cold, you’re entertaining guests etc.

You may be staying home or visiting relatives, but it’s easy to fit exercise into the mix. Here are four tips to keep exercise on track for the holiday.

Mall Walking

Since you’re probably shopping at the mall anyway, you might as well work out in the process. Do two or three loops around the mall before you start shopping. Mall walking is very popular and you’ll probably see other people doing the same thing.

Exercise Tapes at Home

For those days when it’s too nasty to be outside, you can pop in an exercise CD and work out in the living room. This is one of my favorites and there is a program for different fitness levels. You can bop to the music while the calories melt away.

Airport Travel

Airports are fabulous for people watching, but you can also get some good exercise walking from terminal to terminal. I enjoy looking in the gift shops and checking out the different restaurants. Ramp it up by parking in the back lot so you get even more exercise.

Family Exercise

It is a temptation after the big holiday meal to beach on the couch and play video games, or watch a movie. Tell your relatives that you plan to stay active while you’re visiting and see if they come up with some ideas in which the whole family can participate.

Walking, playing football or baseball, miniature golf, and bowling are just a few suggestions to get everyone outside in the fresh air for some exercise.

How do you stay on track with your exercise during the holidays?

    • Hi Ron:

      I have a WordPress blog because it is the most use-friendly. It’s better if you’re in business to go through WordPress.org instead of WordPress.com. This way you have total control of your content. I use the Get Noticed Theme by Michael Hyatt.It costs $197 but is well worth it.

      Hope this helps,
      Pat Coldiron

    • Hi Louisa:
      I have found WordPress is the best and looks the most professional. You can try sites like Wix, or Web.com as alternatives. I would reach out to WordPress and tell them about your problems. They have some good security measures in place.
