Unwanted Gift of Calories? Drop them in the New Year!
You made a plan to watch what you eat and not be temped by the culinary superpowers of your family members. But once the birds started cooking and the pies came out of the oven, you knew you were going to lose this year’s battle to maintain your satisfactory waistline.
Don’t worry; you are not the only one haunted by the ghosts of holiday calories past. When you spend an entire year being strict on your body, it’s OK to give in to the sugar-frosted, oven-baked, buttery, steamy goodness of home-cooked holiday food. However, now that a New Year is right around the corner, you can resolve to get fit again. Abberly Place can help with not one but two advanced Fitness Centers for your workout convenience.
Beginning your workout routine at the start of the New Year is a common and great idea, but keep in mind that it is still only the beginning of winter. Just like during warmer seasons, use caution when working out in cold weather conditions.
- Dress in layers when walking from your apartment to the Fitness Center. Cold air on bare, sweaty skin is the easiest way to get a fever. Invest in some stylish winter workout attire so you’ll not only want to go to the Fitness Center more often, you’ll look good while you’re there!
- Clean your weights or machines before and after you use them. Winter is cold and flu season, and even though the Fitness Center is maintained regularly, many of your neighbors are probably sharing the same New Year’s resolution to get fit, so make sure you don’t share germs when you’re at the gym.
- Don’t forget to drink water! For some reason people assume that since it’s cold outside they won’t become as dehydrated at the gym. The room is comfortably-heated and you are guaranteed to sweat, so keep that water bottle handy.
It’s easier to keep resolutions when you have a good friend there beside you. See who else in the Abberly Place community is looking to get in shape this year and join them at a Fitness Center.
