Today my "core central" instructor talked to us about getting ready for the holidays. According to new research, during the holiday season the average American will gain 8 pounds between October 15 - January 15. Researchers also found that the average American will reduce their exercise routine by 50% because of holiday parties and shopping. She encourage us to put ourselves first during this time.
Her advice to us was the following:
1. Make a promise to workout and eat healthy during this time.
2. Weigh yourself at least once a week to stay on track.
3. Keep food portions small and drink plenty of water.
4. Consult a trainer if the routine is off track.
My instructor is very current on the new research because she just graduated in June with a dual Master in Nutrition and Kinesiology. It appears she really cares about our health and well being.
Picture: I took this picture in Central Park, New York during one of my $169.00 round trip flight from San Diego to New York. If the price is right I will fly almost anywhere. I was there for only 3 days and I had a blast! I was able to visist all the tourist spots and eat at a few awesome restaurant's. New York is on my favorite top 5 cities visited. My 1st and all time favorite was Washington, D.C. and Chicago is my 2nd favorite.
This blog is about my life as a selfish traveler. My plan is to travel the world before I leave this world. Traveling is my life and my passion. This is my place to enjoy and explore. Let's have some fun!
