Starting Your Health Resolution by Getting Back in Shape After the Holidays

Most people complain about gaining weight over the holidays. That’s already a fact that is often taken in stride as an expected result of all the partying and celebrating during the Christmas season. However, if by now you’re still complaining about all that excess weight, start your health resolution. It’s time to work off those excess pounds and give a new meaning to the statement “Eat, drink, and be merry!” Redefining this statement will help you successfully get back to your pre-holiday weight. Who knows? You might even lose a couple of pounds more than you expect.

eat healthyEat Healthy – it’s time to count your calories once again. With your health resolution, you do not necessarily have to cut your calorie intake to an unreasonably low amount. You do need energy to perform your daily tasks. What you will have to work at is getting your calorie consumption to a level that matches your energy use. If you intend to go on a vigorous workout, you cannot possibly survive with only half of the recommended daily calorie intake for your height, weight, and age. Healthy foods that are packed with the nutrients that you need and none of the excess calories are always recommended.


drink plenty of waterDrink Plenty of Water – do not underestimate the power of water. You need water to flush out all the toxins in your body. Unknown to you, some of these toxins might be causing your body to retain more fats and bad substances. Drinking ample amounts of water can help your digestive system effectively process the foods that you eat. Staying hydrated will also keep your internal processes running smoothly while observing your health resolution.

You can work on pushing each other to achieve your weight loss goals. A good support system will also make it easier for you to stick to your exercise program more faithfully.

So what are you waiting for? Start your health resolution now.
