The Unexpected Guide to Weight Maintenance During the Holidays

It’s the Holidays – Let the Festivities Begin

Whether we stay in or venture out, the holidays come with more festivities. That may mean more holiday eating, relaxed dietary restrictions and, potentially, some extra pounds. But there are ways around the weight gain that comes with having some extra fun. We can always try to take the stairs whenever possible, but what about the things we already do every day, especially during a busy holiday season? How do our everyday activities compare when it comes to burning off extra calories? We found out and put it together in a handy infographic!

There are things you can do, both in prepping for the holidays and in simply adding more movement to your day, that can help keep the heart pumping and those calories burning. Like using gift bags and boxes as weights and squeezing in some squats or lunges between wrapping gifts! However you decide to do it, the most important thing to remember is to keep moving. The more you move, the more you’ll be able to enjoy your favorite holiday foods this season!
