Okay, so ideally you’ll continue to exercise about half an hour most days throughout this entire holiday season. But let’s be honest. Sometimes we just have so much on our to-do lists that exercise gets pushed to the bottom…or maybe that part of the list just gets torn off! Rather than skip the physical activity all together, be willing to give yourself a little bit of leeway this time of year as far as program regimen goes. Park in the farthest parking spot you can find from the mall doors. Walk briskly into the mall, from the mall, and in between the individual stores. Sneak in a few calf raises while you’re waiting in line to check out. So now you’ve got arm loads of packages and that car is parked forever away, right? Perfect. Use the extra walk time to do a few bicep curls, using the packages as your weights. Take two minutes before you drive away to perform a few leg stretches. Shoot, stretch your arms too – they’ll need it after lugging those bags! Use these quick tips and you may find that you’re actually able to stick with your exercise goals this holiday season. Save the formal stuff for your party attire!
