Stay hydrated, drink a sufficient amount of water or fulfill it with other liquids like fresh natural juices, etc. Keep away from sweets especially artificial ones, junk food and sleeping after eating.

 

Exercise hard and sleep well

If you would walk around the city and doing other physical activities then workout can be skipped. See how much of workout you are doing when lifting shopping bags, walking around in the malls or playing lawn tennis.

 

Family time

Give some time to your family, like playing with kids or taking your wife to the park, going on romantic walks after dinner. Be smart, this way you can make a strong bond with the family and do your workout at the same time. Of course, holidays are not to be spent in gyms.

 

Take advantage of delays

While you are waiting for the bus or train to arrive do some squats or pushups. Make it fun, you can challenge your friend or brother for pushups. But for that, you have to be in comfortable clothes.

 

Keep the balance

Holidays are the best times when you can eat all you want and do nothing. As intimidating as it seems, it makes the situation worse. Keep the balance between workout and family if going to the gym. Instead of the gym, you can find innovative ways to do physical activity. So, put your tracksuit on and go play with your kids in the parks or children section.

 

Plan your workout

Workout opportunity is always present you just have to look for it. Plan your workout or activities accordingly will help and keep you the fun holidays from getting ruined. This is better than skipping the gym or workout. It is not necessary to go to the gym.  Just planning is not enough you also have to work on it. Otherwise, it would just be another ruined workout plan and in the end, you will get fed up with exercise.

 

Eat what you can burn

Fat is made when we cannot burn the number of calories that we intake. Thus, it is pretty simple, all you have to do is eat what you can burn. For this, there are two steps. Either you can eat less and workout less, in this case, you have to keep control over your diet and avoid or just taste a little of what you love. Or you can work out more so that you burn all of what you ate. In this case, you might have to work out more but that is easy because there are a million ways to do that. For instance, family walks, playing with kids in the park (make sure they are your kids), and going places on foot are some ways.

 

Doing what you like

Doing what you like does not feel like a workout, but it burns the calories plus, you have enjoyed the time. For instance, doing the tango with your partner will be a new experience, you will be close to each other, get to know each other better, and burn those calories. Similarly, indoor mountain climbing, tap dancing, some sports, swimming, or ice skating are some activities to enjoy.
