It may be the last month of the year but who says it’s too late to start accomplishing your fitness goals. While keeping a consistent workout routine can be difficult, the holiday season adds an extra hurdle between the chilly temperatures, shorter daylight hours, travel to visit with family, food-oriented gatherings and frantic shopping schedules. Squeezing in physical activity is tough and causes some people to gain up to 5 to 7 pounds between Thanksgiving and New Year's Day. So don’t wait until the new year to get your health together. Staying active during the holidays can be easier and more fun than you might think. Here are 4 fierce fitness bloggers to burn calories with before the New Year arrives:
