It’s the most wonderful time of the year… to pack on the pounds. While this time of year is best spent with family and friends, it’s also best spent away from the spinach pie and sweet potato casserole. When you are trying to lose the baby weight, the holiday season can seem more like a curse than a blessing. If your grandma’s famous chocolate chip cookies are going to be making an appearance at the dinner table this year, you might want to check out some quick tips to getting the baby weight off without having to miss out on the sweet treats coming your way.
If you want to avoid eating only salads and passing on the cookies and cake, maybe you should consider some other options. Since the word “diet” is probably not in your vocabulary the next couple of months, let’s look at other alternatives to losing the baby weight.
If you want to keep your sweet tooth satisfied and still watch your calorie count, then you might want to look at alternatives to the traditional workout regimen. Crossfit is taking the nation by storm and it’s for good reason. People see results typically faster than diet and basic exercise alone. The best part is, you can be a novice and still keep up with the rest of the group. Also, there is a crossfit gym in almost every major city in the U.S. Austin has an excellent program and so does Seattle. Just do a quick Google search to find one near you.
The holidays don’t need to be something we dread as new moms. We can still enjoy the leftovers for days after the holiday ends without worrying about those last few pounds from our precious baby. You just have to know the right way to do it.
