Oh the holidays, I love you but why do you hate my waist line? Yesterday was a dose of reality. After being off from work for a week during the holiday period, I came back to the Get Fit realization that the holidays bit my butt. I gained about 3 and a half pounds in the two weeks since I was last weighed. OUCH.
This dose of reality really makes you think about what you are doing and how quickly your body takes to some bad habits. When I told my wife, she looked and me and said, “were you surprised?” That simple statement got me thinking, should I have been surprised? To tell you the truth, I was a bit surprised about the amount of weight in the short amount of time.
I admit, I didn’t watch what I was eating very well. I ate more than normal, more hearty foods and more sweets. But at the same time, I worked out hard. That proved to me, you need a good balance between a thoughtful diet and good workouts to improve your well-being and to Get Fit. And while that seems cliché, I think that is the lesson I will take from this holiday season. A good balance of food and exercise makes my Get Fit world go around.
Have a great week and let’s Get Fit together.
