1. Use your WiiWii Fit isn't just for the kiddies, you can take advantage of all those great games, spend time with your family and work up a sweat at the same time.
2. Unexpected weightsTake your hand weights and put them in places you frequent; a shelf in the fridge, on the bathroom sink, in the laundry room. In between loads, morning rituals and trips to the kitchen use the weights to get in some reps.
3. Time for yourselfCreate a reward schedule for meeting your fitness goals. Schedule a pedicure, buy new clothes or choose another great gift for yourself. One rule: No food rewards.
4. Go shoppingLook for cute, sexy workout clothes. When you look good, you feel good and when you feel good, you will work wonders.
5. Take a hikeSeriously, gather your family, friends or co-workers and start walking or hiking. Do it at lunch or before or after work. Why not start a walking club and do it as a group?
6. Get more shut-eyeYou need at least six hours of sleep per night. Running on empty causes you to stress and your body to store fat instead of burn it, not to mention making you a total crank. Get some rest and breeze through the holidays.
7. Stress LessStress is here to stay, so learn ways to deal with it. Some stress is good, but continued, over-the-top stress, like what you get during the holidays helps no one. Repeat tips one through six to help you control your stress levels.
