Stay fit over Christmas break

For athletes working out almost every day of the year staying fit over the holidays may seem difficult at times. For some it is the longest holiday of the year including traveling and a lot of family dinners and other parties. The season is just around the corner and we do not want to return unfit back to practice.
There are a few rules that make things easier without having to miss out on all the fun. The break days might not be 12 but here are 12 easy rules to follow.

  1. Begin the day with a healthy breakfast
  2. Take a brisk walk with a family member every day 
  3. Before a party have a healthy snack 
  4. Eat slowly - enjoy the things you choose to eat 
  5. Pick a seat far away from the candy bowl

  7. Do not stuff your plate have smaller portions 
  8. Drink a lot of water
