- #1. Don't skip your workouts! Just because your day may be jam packed does not mean you have to sacrifice your workout. Look at shortening the duration and increasing intensity. For example, if you normally hit the treadmill for a half hour, cut it down to 10 minutes by doing intervals. Remember, any workout is better than no workout!
- #2 Portion Control. You don't have to say no to everything, you just have to look at taking a smaller portion. Saying that, if you park yourself close to the food, you will be more likely to indulge. Try to mingle more and stay away from the food table.
- #3 Keep your hydration up. Over the holidays most people tend to consume more alcohol. This can lead to dehydration, leaving you feeling tired and foggy headed the next day. If you want to have energy the day after your party, have a glass of water after each alcoholic drink. You will wake up the next morning ready to get your workout in!
