It’s not always easy to go to the gym and/or carve out an hour each day for physical activity. But you don’t have to take a ton of time to make a big difference.
Except for those enviable folks with crazy metabolisms, the holiday season is a difficult time of year for most people. There’s a predictable cycle. It’s a stressful season with lots of parties and food, and it’s not necessarily food that is in your waistline’s best interests. And we all tend to overindulge, telling ourselves that it’s a special time of year and we’ll make up for it by going on a diet soon afterward. Or we try to steer clear of holiday treats altogether and end up binging in a moment of weakness and feeling many times worse afterward. And, either way, the New Year comes and goes and resolutions get broken quickly. And then it’s the same story 12 months later.
Trust us: The best solution is to not deprive yourself and to just make sure you compensate for that extra holiday cookie or slice of pie with some physical activity. In other words, if you remain active throughout the holiday season, or, heck, all year round, you can eat more of whatever you want, whenever you want it. And this doesn’t mean you have to sign up for a marathon or anything like that. There are tons of quick and easy at-home workouts for even the busiest women.
Take, for example, Real Simple, which has some great 15-minute workouts. Prevention even has 10-minute workouts, as does Parenting and Fitness magazine.
The point is, we know you’re busy and it’s not always easy to go to the gym and/or carve out an hour each day for physical activity. But you don’t have to take a ton of time to make a big difference. Even ten minutes a day can yield measurable results.
And, of course, Always for Me is right there beside you to support you and make sure you look cute and feel comfortable all the while. We stock plenty of bike shorts, workout pants and sports bras/tops for workouts long and short.
