Many people believe that it is next to not possible to avoid weight gain during winters. If not possible, then it surely is very difficult to stay fit because winter season for the majority of the population begins from November and ends in February or March. It is in these months that all major festivals come, and people celebrate all the festivals with great enthusiasm. Festivals mean food, and I mean a lot of food. Fried foods, sweets and carbonated drinks are consumed in large quantities during festival days. Well, it is hard to avoid such foods when everybody else is eating the same.
There is no point is setting a resolution of losing 10 lbs when you are going to gain 15 lbs between Thanksgiving and New Years. You can enjoy all the festivals without putting up weight. Let us know how that is possible.
Getting out of bed in winters is one hell of a job. Nobody wants to get out in the open, let alone working out in the gym. It is important to stick to a routine of exercises and workout just like any normal meeting. If you are fond of winter sports such as snowboarding, skiing or sledding, then you should totally get indulged in these sports in order to stay fit. If you don’t like snow, then you can plan for an adventurous boot camp session at your gym.
2. Stay away from alcohol.
Making up mind to achieve an optimum fitness level is a big decision and alcohol can totally ruin it. So, you need to stay away from alcohol because it is going to put brakes on your fitness regime. I totally understand that it is not that easy to get rid of old habits, but you have to make tough decisions if you want to get in shape. Apart from alcohol, you need to avoid carbonated drinks as well, as those contain a lot of carbs and sugars. You can opt for sugar-free drinks such as club soda with lime. Nobody will be able to make out if you were drinking a non-alcoholic drink.
