This is the season where beer fitness can turn into more "beer" and less "fitness." While you may be tempted to stray from your healthy ways because sweater weather has arrived, we’re here to tell you that it’s easier than you think to stay on track.
Here are a few of our top tips and tricks to help you stay fit this holiday season.
Find a Fit Friend
There’s no better way to stay on track with your health and fitness goals than to talk about them with someone! It's helpful to find friend to give us a helpful nudge and support. Plus, having a go-to fitness friend will almost guarantee you won’t have to work out alone.
Sign up for a Festive Race
These races are also a great way to get social when you run with a family member or friend. We’ve even taken the guess work out of finding a festive race by compiling this list, so there’s no excuse to not get moving.
Keep Healthy Snacks on Hand
It’s important to keep healthy snacks with you, like nuts, fruit, or protein bars, in case the temptation arises. This will help you stay on track with your fitness goals and avoid a sugar crash later in the day. We’re not saying to deprive yourself of the joy that comes with a good piece of pie or a sugar cookie, we’re just saying you should do it in moderation!
Meal Prep, Meal Prep, Meal Prep
Meal prepping is key to healthy eating and it shouldn’t take the back burner because of holiday parties and Thanksgiving leftovers. We even compiled some easy meal prep tips for a healthy week here.
Attend Your Favorite Beer Fitness Classes
As a bonus, working for your beer in the winter months means you get the opportunity to try seasonal beers at your favorite local brewery!
Remember to Enjoy Yourself
Listen to your body and know when it needs nourishment (and not another cookie) or more water (and not more beer). Everything in moderation, except for spreading holiday cheer. Keep the happy holiday vibes coming!
