Stay On Track This Holiday Season with Zman Fitness!

Happy holidays everyone! This week I want to give you all a few tips for getting through the holiday season AND issue you a challenge to make sure you do it!

First up, how did you do in 2011? Did you meet your goal? Do you even remember what your goal is?! This is what I want you all to do:

1. Write down what your goal for 2011 was. (ie I want to weigh 160lbs by Christmas 2011)

2. Then, write down where you’re at as of today. (ie I weigh 170lbs today, December 19th 2011)

3. Evaluate your activity. Look over your exercise logs and your food logs. How did you do? Did you ROCK 2011? Or did you take a more casual approach?

Use these steps to see if you really deserved to hit your goal, or maybe your goal was too high based on the activity you planned! Regardless, if you didn’t meet your goal and you really think you should have, get with me! This is why I’m here, to help you get fit and reach those goals!

Next up, a challenge. I challenge you all to work out at least 3 days a week for the next two weeks. That’ll get you to the New Year! Normally I want you working out at least 5 days a week, but with the holidays I would be STOKED if you all hit 3 days.

And finally, my last tip of 2011… LET YOUR FAMILY IN ON THE FUN!!! Don’t hide all of your healthy food and workout equipment when they come to town. Don’t put off the gym or going for that run. INVITE them to come with you! Maybe you can be the person in your family this year to inspire someone to do great things in 2012.

Have a great holiday and I’ll see you all in 2012!
