Do you find it difficult to stick with your fitness and nutrition plan once the holiday season starts? (I know, some of you don’t need the holidays as an excuse; sticking with fitness is challenging no matter the time of year…)
Every year I tell myself that this will be the year that I don’t indulge. Christmas baking? Who needs it! Seasonal cocktails? I can do without.
Guess how long my resolve lasts? About as long as it takes the second pan of gingerbread to cool!
Why? Because food is a huge part of family celebrations and traditions.
This year I’m taking a completely different approach to fitness over the holidays.
In addition to maintaining my regular workouts, I’m challenging myself to add an extra 30 minutes of movement to my day, each and every day in December (with the possible exception of Christmas Day itself; time off for good behaviour, you know!). That way, I can still enjoy the tastes of the season without worrying about their effects on my waistline!
I’m calling my challenge #30FOR30; 30 minutes of activity for 30 days in December. Care to join me?
That extra activity can be anything you choose; a run, a walk, shovelling snow, building a snow fort (surprisingly hard work!), washing the floors, taking a Zumba class. As long as you’re moving and it’s 30 minutes MORE than you’d usually do in a day! Regular workouts don’t count
I’ll be sharing my #PROOF with you on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram using the hashtag #30FOR30. You should too!
Make sure you’re following me (I always follow back unless you try to sell me followers or post naughty pictures to my feed):
Looking forward to seeing what YOUR daily #30FOR30 looks like!
