As a triathlete, this time of year is typically my off-season. With that, I don't have as much structure as I would most of the year. This can be good and bad: I have the freedom to something other than swim, bike, and run, yet I don't have the accountability to get workouts in. Like most people, I eat a little more over the holidays, but I also ensure I am consistent about getting some exercise in. To help, I don't try to get the best parking spots. I just park further away so I can walk, plus I don't waste time circling lots and therefore getting stressed. Opting for stairs over an elevator or escalator can burn off some of those extra calories with the additional time at the mall. Lastly, I give away most leftovers so I'm not grazing over them for days at a time.
