The end of the year is a time for celebration. Many of us attend holiday events, go to parties, and get together with family. And though it’s an exciting time, it’s important to stay on track with your health, keep a nutritious diet, and exercise.

“Overweight and obese adults tend to put on even more weight – around 5 pounds – over the holiday season,” U.S. News explains. “This same trend exists for children – with overweight kids putting on more weight during the holidays than normal-weight kids.”

This could be due to the fact that many of us stop exercising during this time of the year. We become so busy with our day-to-day tasks that we make up excuses and “can’t find the time to workout.” Keep your fitness goals intact and motivate yourself by setting a goal for Jan 1. Participate in group fitness classes, try outdoor sports, and practice yoga for stress relief.

Sticking to a healthy diet is key for maintaining your weight during the holidays. You can do this by staying away from certain staple foods such as eggnog, candy canes, and Swedish meatballs, to name a few.
