Fitness Tips for the Party Season

by

The party season is just around the corner, or shall I say it has started already?

For a fitness enthusiast like me, the party season is both good and bad news.

No matter how committed I am to my workout and diet plan, there are way too many distractions not to get tempted by. I assume there will be many like me who go through the same kind of struggle. Therefore I have come up with a some tips that can help people like us stay fit and yet indulge in our favorite drink and snack combo without piling a layer around our waistlines!

Before I start, here is a disclaimer. I am just a fitness enthusiast and try to live a healthy lifestyle in general. I am not a certified health and fitness professional of any kind. These are some of the tips that I incorporate into my daily routine during the party season and I am sharing the same hoping you will find them helpful too! 😉

I do moderate workout 5 days a week and eat healthy 80% of the times. But party season makes me crazy as I love my wine and I love my fried snacks. Am not much into sweets though!

If I am heading to a party or planning one at home, apart from eating well I drink a lot of water all throughout the day, may be a few extra glasses.

Water keeps one feeling full and therefore you don’t end up eating triple the amount of what you normally do when you reach the party!

Also, it is a great idea not to go to a party empty stomach. Eat a small bowl of something healthy along with a large glass of water and  you will not regret it, I promise! Of course you’d want to keep a check on your alcohol intake if you are into drinking.

The morning post party, try to do some light to moderate exercise before breakfast. If you are not used to working out at all, just put together a plan for these couple of months.

The thumb rule is -‘Something is better than nothing’!

So it could be just a 10-15 minutes of moderate to high intensity workout, like spot jogging, spot sprinting, jumping jacks etc. Those of you with a fitness routine, these 10-15 minutes would be to burn off the extra bits that you ate the night before. If you can manage a longer duration, going for a morning walk/jogging is not just good for a hang-over, it helps in burning calories too!

These few tips really help me stay fit and stay healthy and yet party hard and I hope you will be able to put them to use too. I know it would need a certain amount of will-power and a bit of effort, but hey, it’s just for a few days. Party season doesn’t last for ever and neither does your extra effort. It totally makes sense to make the most of this time of the year without feeling guilty about it for a long time.

So, go ahead and enjoy your parties and stay fit and healthy at the same time!

    This is good common sense even for those who are not big on exercise, the morning before an evening holiday party is a good time to get in some stretches and movements, even walking if the weather outside is reasonable. It helps to offset the calories you are going to take in later. At parties I will often go for a white wine spritzer, light on the wine, which I can sip slowly to last and not feel like I am depriving myself of an alcoholic beverage. Far healthier and less diet-sabotaging than mixed cocktails or sodas.

      Bad lifestyle kills a lot of people around the world and it is definitely a ‘real world’ problem. My post aims at inspiring people to stay fit and healthy and a lot of them are finding it useful. However, it’s interesting to see you going through my entire post, which according to you is meaningless, and even taking time out to comment. Pity, You are not even capable of finding topics that interest you on the internet and instead you go around commenting on articles that don’t mean anything to you! LOL!

    Great advice, I agree in that I think moderation is key. I work out 3 times a week, but I train with heavy weights, so I think this year I might add in bursts of HIIT to combat the extra food 😀

    I agree, something is better than nothing! I’m fortunate that I teach dance 5 days a week so I keep fit while I work. Being vegan, I eat a variety of delicious plant foods which I absolutely love! At 65, I feel as energetic as in my 20s. 🙂 ❤️carmen https://fashionableover50.wordpress.com

    Those are great things to remember. Drinking water does fill one up a bit and having a little before arriving at least 20 minutes in advance so that you have had time to digest and it makes you feel fuller before you put anything on your plate. And yes, any amount of exercise helps, however you can get it.

    Being vegetarian helps me a lot in party periods and also not being a great foodie does, but your tips are good also in “normal” periods. Personally, I love walking and I move with bike

    I usually work out around 5 times a week too and I find that if you get into a routine, it helps during the party season. I tend to do HIITS, maybe 4-5 rounds of for example, burpees, press ups, mountain climbers etc. Thanks for the tips!

    You are right. Party season is the worst for weight and health. Loved your tips especially that going vegan has so many upsides to it!

    I hear ya! The holidays is when I bake the most and therefore eat the most desserts. It’s really hard to stick a heatlhy-ish lifestyle which we try to do most days. And I agree, something is better than nothing!
