Most of us would associate Christmas with overeating. Even though we know we shouldn’t do it, once we see all the treats available to us we decide we will go for more food than we normally would, just as a festive treat.
It makes sense therefore to try and arrive at the festive season with the best possible figure we can. If you want to lose a few pounds, now is the best time to make it happen. You have a few weeks to go until all the Christmas parties start to kick off, and with some smart food and exercise decisions you could reach the festive season slimmer than you would have been otherwise.
The easiest way to start exercising now so you can speed up any weight loss you experience is to do something you can do in all weathers. Once we’re into November there is no telling what the weather will do, and you don’t want to try and go jogging at sub zero temperatures or in gale force winds either!
The ideal solution would be to buy an exercise bike because this isn’t dependent on good weather at all. Instead you will be able to get on and start pedalling whenever the mood takes you. If you like the idea of getting up first thing in the morning and getting some exercise before you get started on your day, you can do just that. It doesn’t matter what the weather is doing outside and you can go cycling when it suits you best, without having to worry about it getting dark earlier either.
The point is that with just a few short weeks to go until Christmas, you can still make a difference to the way you look if you focus on losing some weight now. You might even find that once Christmas arrives you aren’t as tempted to overeat as you might have been in the past. This is great news because you will enjoy the festive season even more. You might even hop on your exercise bike for a short while on Christmas Day and Boxing Day too if the mood takes you!
All in all there is no denying that Christmas is getting closer all the time. So it’s up to you whether to make the most of the few weeks you have left to look your very best for the big day.
