There are 12 days left in 2013 and the double-whammy of Christmas and New Year’s is amplified by the fact that food, drink, travel and family is involved. Oh yeah, and then there’s the shopping, wrapping and setting up for Santa.
The first thing to get thrown on the back burner is your good-intentioned exercise plan. So to prevent the next 12 days to disappear into a pile of gift bags and brightly colored bows let’s set a plan. Make a challenge. Commit.
Here are some ideas:
- Walk15 minutes each day (in the am, on your work lunch break or after dinner checking out the holiday lights)
- Plank 30 seconds a day
- Do a circuit of 15 jumping jacks, 10 pushups and 10 squats during each commercial break of The Goldbergs (funniest new show EVER)
- Go to http://www.yogajournal.com and select a 5 or 10 minute yoga series
Whatever you do, keep at it for the next 12 days. Then it’s 2014 and your new fitness/healthy eating habits can kick in full force.
Now go run!
