Oh it’s that time of year again.
You are constantly faced with decisions about what to eat and what not to eat. Like no other time of year, the temptations are everywhere, and these’s no reason you shouldn’t allow yourself some treats.
But at what expense?
The reason New Years resolutions were invented was probably because people gain so much weight this time of year.
So how do you combat it and allow yourself enjoy some of the delicious flavors of the season? Without having an extra 10lbs to resolve to lose in Janaury?
That answer is easy.
Simply burn off more calories than you take in.
It’s a straightforward equation we can all understand, but putting it into action is a whole other story.
United Healthcare wants to challenge you this month to stay healthy and active despite indulging in a few treats now and then. Or daily.
United Healthcare Dares You to Share
Small steps matter. A small step every day can help you lead a healthier life, and United Healthcare is going to reward you for it. This month they have 3 fun ways that you can incorporate small changes into your life and each one will give you the opportunity to win some great prizes.
Each challenge has it’s own $400 monthly prize plus each one has $25 weekly prizes as well!
For the fitness challenge, you get an entry for every exercise you log which can really add up to a lot of entries!
To help you step up to the challenge and reduce the effects of peppermint candy and pumpkin pie on your waistline, I came up with my own “Christmas
cookie exercise exchange” where for every treat you eat, you will complete a specific exercise. Eat two of the same thing – that’s two sets of the listed exercise. You can do the exercise immediately, or keep track during the day and do all the exercises you “owe” at the end of the day.
