Run, Rudolph Run (Keep Up The Workouts)
Schedule Your Daily Exercise
Don’t forget to schedule in some time for working out. You may feel that you simply do not have time to work out, but try to make the time to be Healthy during the Holidays. Try placing your workout on your schedule. If it’s on the calendar as something that needs to get done during the day, you are more likely to actually work out. Also, don’t forget that walking is great and it counts even if you are walking while shopping. We call it the healthy holiday shopping workout.
Don’t Neglect Your Physical Therapy
Just because the holidays are hectic, does not mean you should skip your PT sessions. You have put in a lot of work and effort up until this point, keep going. Place your physical therapy appointment on your schedule. This will help to make sure you keep it up. Stay Healthy for the Holidays.
Figgy Pudding – Healthy Holiday Recipes
Tweak Your Recipes
If you are trying to be a little healthier this year and you are the chef, consider adapting some of your recipes to be a little healthier. Consider substituting sugar with applesauce and vanilla extract in some of the desserts and exchange condensed milk with coconut milk. Did you know that when making cake mix out of the box you can substitute the oil with applesauce, fat free yogurt or fat free sour cream? This Healthy Holiday recipe update actually tastes good too. Instead of using eggs, use egg substitute. Get creative with your recipes, and you may find that they are the perfect healthy holiday recipe that will become a new tradition.
