Don't Wait Until The New Year

By Jan Wilhelm

Why does everyone wait until the New Year to do something about their health and fitness? It is traditional for everyone to resolve to lose weight or exercise more. I think we should start now. I guess you are laughing at the thought of watching your weight during the Holidays.

Do you have Holiday parties to go to? It is possible to watch your weight even then. One good tip is to drink at least one glass of water before you go to the party. Very often we think we are hungry when we are actually dehydrated. My next suggestion may not be received well. Drink water at the party instead of alcohol. First of all the roads will be much safer if people would do it. But looking at it from a "weight view, you could save a lot of calories. Put a slice of lemon or lime in your water. You don't need alcohol to have a good time.

There are so many tempting foods at Holiday parties and Holiday dinners. You do not just have to pick from the vegetable platters. You can have anything you want. Don't deprive yourself. That makes you want the food even more. Allow yourself a taste or two of food that is really fattening. Portion control allows you to eat many different things. I believe that the dieter's favorite word should be MODERATION. If you follow moderation, you will not feel deprived. You will not overeat. You will try a variety of things. It is not as difficult as you think.

That takes care of the food issue. Now lets talk about exercise. How stressed are you? At this time of year many people get totally stressed. There is just too much to do. Do you find it hard to believe that you can fit exercise in your busy schedule? You may not be able to fit in a workout at the gym but there are other things you can do.

The Christmas lights and decorations are scattered throughout your neighborhood. Get the whole family out. Take a walk and look at everything. If your neighborhood does not decorate go to another one. It will really get you in the spirit and the family will be exercising together.

The malls are really crowded at this time of year. Use that to your advantage. Don't keep driving around trying to find a close parking place. Park on the outskirts and walk. What a novel idea. It amazes me how people feel that they have to park close. Not only are you getting a little exercise, but you are saving a few pennies of that black gold that fuels your car.

Most phone are cordless now, so when you are talking on the phone, do not sit. Walk around. Do exercises. Just keep moving. It is amazing how many calories you can burn when you keep moving.
