ENJOY THE HOLIDAYS

imgWITHOUT THE WEIGHT GAIN!
(Source: Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, eatright.org)

On average, Americans gain approximately one to two pounds during the holiday season. While this weight gain isn't dramatic, research shows it tends to stick and accumulate over the years. With just a few strategies, you can avoid holiday weight gain while still enjoying friends, family, and the holiday feast!

In preparation for a big holiday party or feast, do not skip meals throughout the day. This can result in overeating later. It is especially important to eat breakfast, as research shows that those who eat this morning meal tend to consume fewer calories throughout the day. High-fiber foods will satisfy hunger but are lower in calories, so include fruits, vegetables, and whole grains in your meals.

Holiday meals tend to be large, buffet-style and include second and third helpings. While most wouldn't consider eating an entire cake, a common mistake is eating large portions of foods that are perceived as healthy. Including nutrient-rich foods in your diet is great, just remember that these foods have calories too and should be enjoyed in moderation.

Using the following approaches at your holiday dinner table will help you to maintain a healthful eating plan—one that can also include dessert!

  • Use a smaller plate. This allows you to put less food on your plate and encourages proper portion sizes.
  • Start by filling your plate with vegetables and salad before going to the entrees and desserts. Research shows eating a salad before your meal can help you eat fewer calories overall.
  • Eat slowly and savor every bite, and before you go back for seconds wait 10 minutes to see if you really are still hungry.

For more information on eating healthy during the holidays and all year round, consult with Jacqueline Ernst-Smith MS RDN Registered Dietitian at La Madrona Athletic Club via

New Water Aerobics class!!! FREE with membership.

imgSaturdays at 9am, beginning October 18th
with Laurel Keeffe.

Working out in the water provides a full body workout without undue stress on the joints while it increases muscle strength and endurance due to waters built-in resistance. The one hour class includes a warm up, cardio, strengthening, flexibility work and cool down stretches. Using movements adapted to water from aerobics, yoga, pilates and karate, you get a challenging workout that will leave you feeling stronger and refreshed. Classes will include working out in the shallow and the deep water. We will use noodles in the deep water to make sure you stay afloat – and to enhance the workout. Water Aerobics is a great workout for everyone, so join in and have some fun!

Suggestions: It’s a good idea to bring water to drink during the class. You do work up a sweat during the workout, you just don’t know it. Shoes you can wear in the water are good idea as is a hat and sunglasses.

imgOur new instructor, Laurel Keeffe has been proud to be a water aerobics instructor for more than 15 years, assisting people as they learn to love working out in the water. She is certified through the Aquatic Exercise Association and has a strong focus on moving your body in the most effective ways to increase endurance, flexibility, balance and range of motion.

October First Friday Fitness Challenge Winners!
