Always Time For Fitness During Holidays

Seeing relatives you love, great meals, a Tiger victory over the Jayhawks. All great results from a fantastic Thanksgiving holiday.
So, when is there time for fitness between activities?

You know the feeling - you know you're packing away a lot of calories with the holiday feeding. You're feeling guilty because you'd like some time off, but you don't want to gain the "unnecessary holiday pounds." We can always use a little rest, but there's also an easy way to keep up with fitness if you're creative.

It only takes 30 to 60 minutes for a productive workout. You can do a circuit of push-ups, lunges, squats, planks and so forth in no time. All you need is a floor to develop a quick 25-minute routine featuring these exercises. How about a sidewalk? That's all you need for a 25 to 40-minute walk or run outdoors.

I was lucky that my brother and sister-in-law have a pool in the backyard of their fantastic home in the Houston area. So, I was able to do a 30-minute water run routine one morning.

Well, you get the point. There's always room for fitness - even if it's just for 30 to 60 minutes. All you need is a little creativity!
