Fitness Tips for the 2013 Holidays

By admin on December 19, 2013 | Listed under Exercise | Leave a comment |

Well, the holidays are here  so I started thinking of upping my workout plan for the new year.  The thought of  Christmas party overload will not make it any easier. Darn!

In this post I will provide links to articles I’ve read on the subjects of exercise & diet.

The Houston Chronicle had a good article on fitness titled “Workouts mean different things to men and women
There is also a printable copy at  chron.com-Workouts_mean_different_things_to_men_and_women_2013_10_24

I also saw an article for travelers working out in a “cross-fit workout

I am lucky in that I plan and swim 3 days a week, in the early morning. This has become the base of my personal exercise plan.  I have worked out in the morning for more that 30 years and it is just part of my life.

I have included an old NYTimes article that goes into the benefits of exercise before breakfast. I am working to make sure I do eat breakfast, for there have been too many days when I do not eat in the morning. Breakfast IS the most important meal of the day. I need to work to eat lighter at night or even skip dinner, which would  be a hard sell at my house.

I like to read the blogs by the New York Times ( well.blogs.nytimes.com )  because they have a wide variety of  articles on health,  exercise and wellness.

And last but not least, I would like to wish all of my readers, friends and clients a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year for 2014 !
