Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years! These words bring to mind an invariable image of cakes, muffins, pies, wines, champagnes and all of the wonderfully delicious delicacies known to mankind. Now that’s the positive thought! Moving on to the after effects, visualize yourself stepping on to a scale after a hearty Thanksgiving dinner and boy have you put on pounds! Imagine it is the beginning of a new year and you can’t fit into that sexy dress anymore. Now that’s a great start to a new year! Yes, I am on the same page with all of you who have been experiencing the pleasures and woes of the holidays. But you can change that by using this two step process.
The first step is quite obvious – EAT RIGHT! By that I do not mean starving or even completely doing without the goodies. It simply means that you control the portions of your food. Have smaller sizes – Instead of a large piece of that apple pie, just have a sliver. Instead of a huge muffin, go for a smaller piece of cake. I hope you get the drill. The idea is simply to eat just the right amount so you feel good and still have enough energy to run half a mile rather than feel sick to your stomach. Trust me, this is quite DOABLE!
The next step is to burn those consumed yummy calories. Let them not hangout in that wonderful body for long! Being a workout freak that I am, I can’t imagine a day without sweating it out on the treadmill or in my yoga class. That’s my secret to keeping those pounds off. But for individuals who find it hard to make it to a gym or even a group-fitness class for that matter, here are some great circuit training exercises which you can quite easily do in the comfort of your home. The following video consists of four sets of great exercises which involves cardio-vascular work, strength training and core work quite well. Check it out!
Wow, she surely is inspiring, isn’t she! So if you want to get a body as great as her and have your friends and family wonder about the secret behind your smashing look regardless of the holidays, stay consistent with the two step process! Stay healthy, look beautiful, because you deserve it!
