MISSION FITNESS: Stay in shape during the holidays

The holidays are a wonderful time of the year surrounded with family, friends, food and good times which can make sticking to our fitness goals extremely difficult. In addition, decreasing temperatures, shorter daylight hours, chaotic travel and a hectic shopping schedule make working out that much more troublesome. According to Science Daily, individuals can gain up to seven pounds from Thanksgiving to New Year’s Day. Fortunately, that doesn’t have to be you this holiday season.
