How To Keep The Weight Off This Winter

Putting on weight this Winter is not cute. What is cute- tight, black denim with that oversized cashmere sweater and booties. In order to look your best, you have to feel your best and take action!

Here are 5 tips for keeping that weight off this Winter. 

1. Change Holiday Priorities

Often times with family, it is easy to make sitting, eating and drinking the only priority of the day. This can definitely be on the agenda, but also add some health conscious to-do's to the list! For example, go on a family hike, play an active family game, or take a family outing somewhere to walk around. That way you won't feel guilty about that slice of pumpkin pie and glass of red wine. 

2. Revamp The Holiday Favorites

You know grandma's traditional buttermilk cookies? Auntie's chocolate cake? Mom's mac and cheese? You get the gist. Revamp these recipes by substituting healthier ingredients. For example, applesauce is a GREAT replacement for butter in many baked goods. Also, opt for dark chocolate when you have the choice! Anything can be made healthier and does NOT have to taste like chalk. (Don't forget to take your BIkiniBOD)!

 3. Face The Cold

When it's cold outside, we tend to hibernate and fear going into the chilly weather. Instead, bundle up and embrace the season. Celebrate the holiday time by going to listen to carolers, drink warm drinks, and walk around town to see the holiday lights. Maybe get adventurous and take your new running shoes outside! 

 4. Use Your Words

Just like your mamma taught you- use your words and don't be afraid to say no. If you feel satisfied, say no to an extra slice of pie. If you don't need another eggnog, say no. Be picky with what you put into your body and enjoy in moderation. 

5. Keep it Spicy

One great thing about Winter foods is SPICE. Cinnamon, ginger, cayenne, turmeric. You name it. Add these spices to your recipes to rev up that metabolism! And they taste great. 

Cheers to a great Winter bod.
