If you want to break the cycle of holiday weight gain, there are some fun ways to stay in shape and fend off extra holiday pounds. Physical activity is the key to fighting off winter weight gain, but it may be hard to work out as the weather gets colder outside. Here are some strategies to help you overcome the challenges of winter workouts and stay lean through the holidays.
Avoid overindulging at holiday events
When you attend holiday parties and gatherings, be sure to eat a healthy meal beforehand so that you are not tempted by high-calorie treats and snacks. Keep your alcohol consumption down as well, as this will save you from consuming excess calories. You can also give your holiday meals healthy makeovers by cutting out ingredients like butter and heavy cream.
Stay active indoors
At Players Indoor Sports Center, you can find state-of-the-art facilities to play soccer, lacrosse, rugby, ultimate Frisbee, or football. There are open adult leagues and field times up for reservations, so you can stay active with any schedule. Competitive and social leagues are available, and players of all skill levels are welcome to join in the fun.
Encourage friends to stay active together
You might get a group of friends to play weekly indoor football games or join an adult league team with you so that you are motivated to keep up an active routine. When you have friends relying on you to show up to practices and games, you will want to show up ready to play.
