At no other time of the year will your fitness resolve be truly tested than the Holidays. With parties, get-togethers, and endless after work eating temptations, you will more than likely end up squeezing into your best clothes by the time the New Year comes. When it seems too hard not to give in to the guilty pleasures of Holiday food, a few interesting facts about food calories and make up exercise might strengthen your resolve after all.
This Holiday-staple drink packs 343 calories in just a single serving. So if you forget this fan fact, you might actually hear the numbers on the scale ticking like a time bomb. But, what is the Holidays all about without a drink or two? You can, however, even it out by doing as many burpees as you can manage in a span of 45 seconds. This is to be repeated 25 times more with 15-second intervals. For better perspective, you have to do the whole set for every cup of eggnog you enjoy. If this will not let you cry out for water when the next party comes, nothing else will.
Another Holiday foods is the cheese. While an ounce may not seem that much, nobody indulges in just an ounce of cheese in reality. The remedy to a single portion of gruyere is work on the StairMaster for 35 minutes. Just imagine just what an ounce or two more will mean for you and you get the idea.
The Pecan Pie
Your sinfully delicious Pecan pie comes in with a staggering 500 calories for a single slice. One of the best ways of burning off calories is by performing an hour of jumping rope. While the jumping rope may sound easy enough, this should not be done the way little kids do it. To make the endless jumps with just a few seconds of rests in between a little easier, you can try to listen to your favorite lively songs.
Seriously, this holiday food is simply too good to pass up so you might as well accept the fact that you will have to work out before the New Year arrives. You can burn off the 707 calories every single slice by doing workouts that can really push you to the limit. Try channeling your inner Ronda Rousey or Holly Holm and you will be clearly forgiven for that heavenly cake.
By knowing these facts about holiday foods, you will get a better perspective keeping your fitness level during the Holidays.
