Ok, it’s that’s busy time of year again. The parties are picking up and your workouts will drop off. So instead of waiting until January to recover from the festivities, resolve to stay on top of AT LEAST your workout now so it’s less of an uphill battle later.
- Revving up your metabolism to deal with the extra calories
- Looking hot wearing your cocktail dress
- Looking hotter not wearing your cocktail dress
1. RISE AND GRIND
Morning people you’re all set on this one, just stick to your routine. As for you nighttime exercisers, you’ll need to switch it up. If you workout in the morning, you can get out to the party at night. Let’s be honest, no one wants to go from work, to the gym, to a party. Not to mention the unimaginable: work to party to gym!
2. KEEP WHAT YOU LOVE
If you’re going to cut back, take out the workouts you do out of obligation, not enjoyment. The workout that gets you amped will motivate you through the energy slump to make it to the gym.
3. PAY FOR YOUR WORKOUT
Whether it’s ClassPass, a private studio, or a trainer, if you’re throwing down extra cash, you’ll get your money’s worth in two ways. You stick to your commitment to exercise and you complete a solid workout.
4. EAT MORE DURING THE DAY
If you eat more during the day, you’ll have energy after your workout and you’ll eat less at night. Don’t judge the food for nutritional value, just eat it before 3pm.
5. BE SATISFIED IN YOUR EFFORT
If you’re tired and hungover and your workout isn’t at the level of intensity that you always hit, don’t be critical, feel satisfied that you actually completed an hour of exercise.Tweet this!
