Cheer Moms Get Fit Holiday Homestretch Challenge
Have you recovered from Black Friday shopping yet? Or are you sitting bug-eyed in front of your computer with your 3rd cup of coffee scoping out the Cyber Monday sales? Today marks that final month of 2014. This has to be the quickest month of the year, or so it seems, with all the holiday chaos and celebrations. Maybe the only thing on your mind is picking out the perfect ham to roast or picking up those last minute hot ticket items to place under the tree all neatly wrapped donned with a shiny bow and ribbon.
The holidays are intended for families and special friends to come together and celebrate. However, the commercialism of the Holiday season has filtered in, causing us much more stress than pleasure during these days. The calendar of events and parties have us rushing in a dozen different directions. Our healthy diets are tossed aside and our sleep patterns are often overlooked. It is a recipe for burn-out for many of us. The good news is that we can change the way we approach the celebrations and make sure that we are taking care of our needs during this hectic time. The Holidays are for giving. This year, give to yourself first in order to be emotionally and physically satisfied to give to others. It is very common to become so involved in giving to others that we fail to give to ourselves. Remember that no matter what you do, there are only 24 hours in a day, so you can’t create more time, but you can clear some time by reevaluating priorities, perhaps saying “no” more often and practicing smart time management.
One way of taking care of yourself is by eating healthy and taking time to be physically active. You’re busy, you’re stressed, it’s chilly out … so why not just take a break from your fitness program until the New Year? Sure, you can always come up with an excuse not to exercise. Maintaining a workout schedule is even more important this time of year because most of us tend to eat more than usual, and exercise helps alleviate stress (which we can all agree we have more of during this hectic month). Slacking off on your fitness program during the holidays will only leave you with more pounds and more stress come New Year’s.
Cheer Moms Get Fit is here to help! We are kicking off the month of December with our Holiday Homestretch Challenge. 31 days dedicated to keeping you slim (and sane), and ready to finish up 2014 on a positive note. We will be actively providing support, posting fitness challenges, sharing healthy recipes and tips, and so much more. Look at it as pre-gaming for the New Year’s resolution craze- you will be a whole step ahead of the game and well on your way to a better you for 2015.
If you have a history with exercise, it can be initially quite tempting to try and get back into what you used to do. Be sure to find some exercises that you love, keep your energy levels up, start slow and remember how good it feels.
