It's the end of the Christmas Holiday period where many of us will have over indulged in certain foods that we aren't used to eating. All of the mince pies, chocolates, big dinners and alcohol should be behind us as we now look to get ourselves ready for the summer period which will soon be here. Ok, I realise that it is only January right now but you know as well as I do, the months fly by and it will soon be here, so we better make sure we are ready. Here are some great ways to handle this transition effectively without feeling like you are climbing a really steep hill....

Get The Balance

An important concept to grasp when taking control of what you look like, is to have a good balance between exercise, rest and eating right. Off the back of a Christmas period you will need to keep this in mind as the primary factor will be to exercise every day and eat well everyday too. Is this right? If you workout and deprive yourself of bad foods will you carry on or will it force you to want to quit? I can't answer it with absolute certainty but I do think there will be a time when it will get too much for you. So, the balance you give yourself with all three things is crucial for seeing good results for months and months. Remember it's a lifestyle and not a race :)


You can't exercise for a few weeks intensely and expect to see all the changes you hope for, it simply doesn't work like that. So give yourself monthly workout plans to stick too which will give you the motivation you need to carry on. Your workouts do not need to be completely exhausting but on other other hand a 5 minute walk isn't going to cut it. a 45 minute to 1 hour session of weights and cardio exercise sounds great and will be enough 3-4 times per week to notice changes. Don't bust your balls in the first week, pace  yourselves and train smart, make your sessions worthwhile.

Eat Well

But more importantly eat a WELL BALANCED diet that will satisfy you each and every day. Sure, it would be great if you could eat fruits and vegetables, meats and other healthy foods everyday, but the likelihood of this is it won't happen. This is because you will start to crave the foods you miss like chocolate, sweets, candy etc etc. You can still have these treats but minimise them to once or twice a week and for the rest of the time, eat clean. By doing this you will give yourself something to look forward too and it will make it all the better when the 'treat' day comes around.

Enjoy It

Another key factor is making sure you enjoy what you're doing because if you don't then you're likely to quit doing it. Pick an exercise plan that you like doing and don't just do something for the sake. Of course there will be exercises that you don't like, we all have this feeling, usually it's leg day with squats and lunges ;). Most of all, stick to your plan and never give up, if you put 100% in you will get 100% out!!
