That Gym Guy’s Holiday Fitness Survival Strategies

                Thanksgiving is a great day! Family, food and football:  what could be better? Christmas and New Year’s Day are right around the corner loaded with fun, festivity and feasting.

                The six-week long holiday season, Thanksgiving to New Year’s Day, promises joyful reunions, presents, family gatherings, holiday parties and renewal of hope and personal resolutions – or at least it should.

                If you find the holiday season more stressful than joyful, if you are one of the many who gain an average 6 to 11 pounds during these 40 days and then take 40 weeks to lose it, than you NEED

That Gym Guy’s Fitness Survival Plan.

                First step is to create a positive mindset regarding the holidays. Recognize that there are many factors out of your control. For example:  the weather, your mother-in-law, your goofy sister and unexpected work requirements can all make you anxious. Worrying about these things only causes stress and emotional angst. What you are worrying about might not even happen! A better approach is to set your mind to deal with any unusual situation or problem when, and if, they occur rather than thinking of every weird thing that could go wrong and stressing out beforehand.

You will be faced with a lot of opportunities to overindulge and feel bad afterwards as you pull your fat clothes out of the closet. A better strategy is to have a game plan in place for each event.

Step One:  Keep your exercise routine intact no matter what! Do extra the day before and the day after the party.

Step Two:  Limit alcohol consumption. Drink two waters for every alcohol beverage you consume.

Step Three:  Only eat the main course. The stuff before and after does the damage.

Step Four:  Talk a lot! If you are talking you aren’t eating or drinking. I know it sounds funny, but it really works.

Step Five:  Keep moving. It is hard to eat on the run.

Step Six:  Smile. Enjoy the time of year and remember:  find time for yourself and the most important people in your life. You WILL make it through the holiday season healthier, happier and more fit!

    If any company or contractor nock at your door and offer, their services then never hire this
    kind of contractor or company. If contractors are unwilling to make changes –
    and charge a fair price for them – they may not be your best choice.

  5. Apart from it, you can also approach Outsourcing Payroll
    Services for your small or middle sized business.
    The System Is The Solution – In 1991 we developed a Comprehensive Construction Strategic
    Bookkeeping System to add useful content to Quick – Books setup in order to make it work for construction companies.

    but what about relying totally on the Cloud.
