Winter Party Weight Gain

Even before Christmas hits, the weight gain is steadily approaching.

Winter parties begin in November, usually, and include many alcoholic drinks, appetizers, mains, and desserts.

So what are some tips to help you stave off the weight gain and continue on your path to health and wellness?

  • Eat before you go out; go slightly full already
  • Decide ahead of time what you’ll allow yourself to give in to. Choose or two things ahead of time.
  • Drink some water before you go, and throughout.
  • Choose your drink wisely; wine vs. mixed drinks, eggnog vs. soda water, etc.
  • Wear tight clothes; that way you will fit less in!

You don’t have to give up all the holiday treats, but try to make wise choices so you’re not stuck on a treadmill for four hours trying to balance your calorie intake.

Enjoy the holidays!

When Your Body Changes…Take Control!

If you’re a woman in her mid to late 40’s or early 50’s, you may have noticed some changes starting to happen. Maybe it feels like a variety of symptoms like mood swings or hot flashes. Weight gain, appetite changes and lack of energy are some of the symptoms as well, and its those ones that can make you start to feel like your body is taking over and making you feel like you’re out of control.

When it comes to your weight, menopause can wreak havoc. With hormones running amok, you are no longer on an even keel when it comes to your hunger and your satiety.

That’s why it’s so important to either start, or maintain a regular exercise program when you’re going through menopause. This can last for years, so taking a break from exercise now because you don’t feel like it, can have detrimental effects on your health, not to mention your self esteem.

Perfect Fit Personal Training works with women who are in the early or late stages of menopause on a daily basis. Our trainer is well versed in training women who are experiencing hormonal changes, weight gain and hot flashes due to menopause.

If you are a woman going through menopause, or know someone that is and could benefit from the assistance of a personal trainer, please email me or call now at (604) 318-6534 to schedule your FREE consultation and initial training session.
