How to beat the Christmas Bulge!

December 8, 2015


Christmas is nearly here and we are all thinking about our party nights and all 

the amazing food we will be enjoying.


Christmas is a time to be enjoyed so doing these little extra things will help you 

curb the extra pounds that you could put on.


Firstly.. Get moving! Why not go for a walk in the fresh air or do some 

exercises at home. If you lack motivation then join a gym or go to a fitness 

class where you should get encouraged and supported. Add some strength 

training into your regime to help you build some muscle instead gaining extra 



Drink in moderation.. As we all know alcohol is extra calories so choose your drink

wisely. Drink alcohol which contains less calories such as spirits with slim line 

tonic. Also drink some water in between drinking alcohol to keep you 



Treats.. We all love our chocolates and goodies over the festivities but think 

about not over indulging without depriving yourself of all those lovely things to 



Don’t skip your meals too. Keep to your regular healthy meal intake and this 

will stop you from binging on chocolates or biscuits because hunger has set in 

and your energy levels are low. Make sure you take in lots of protein and

vegetables as they are low calories and will help to fill you.


Keep yourself hydrated.. Drink lots of fluid during the festivities. Dehydration 

can be confused by hunger so make sure you are drinking at least 2 litres of 

fluid daily, especially after those party nights.

Be realistic.. Don’t set yourself unrealistic goals. Make some time in your day 

to do a little. 30 minutes of exercise is better than nothing. Just adding a little 

more movement will help with those extra calories than may have been eaten 

or drunk.


And finally enjoy yourself.. All the above will help you during the festivities but 

don’t deprive yourself. Christmas is about fun.


Eat drink and be merry..


Our gym team at Splash Magic wishes you all a very Merry Christmas..
