You’ve worked hard all year to stay in shape, so why blow it now? Instead of stuffing yourself with turkey and gingerbread cookies, stay FIT. Fitness expert Carole Carson tells us how with her new book From Fat to Fit: Turn Yourself Into a Weapon of Mass Reduction .


F = Find
Find time for yourself during the winter season. Find quiet moments by journaling, meditating or just stop and take a few deep breaths. Seek out activities that nurture a healthy lifestyle, and reconnect with the reasons you chose to make improvements in your habits.

I = Integrate
Integrate exercise into your holiday schedule. Walk to local shops rather than drive. Discover footpaths near family destinations. Dance at winter concerts, at parties or in your living room.

T = Team Up
Team up with fitness friends to make a positive difference, especially when you’re tempted to eat too much and forsake your exercise routine during the holidays.
