Weihnachtskilos loswerden: Sportlich ins neue Jahr

Get rid of Christmas kilos: Sporty in the new year

Get rid of Christmas kilos

This is how you get rid of those stubborn Christmas kilos!

You probably feasted and snacked hard during the Christmas season. There was a receipt for this on the scale. Of course that's not a drama, but December, with its temptations, is not necessarily the best month to get closer to your desired weight.

January is more suitable for this. Because you've definitely made a few good resolutions for the New Year - maybe one of them also concerns your sporting activity ? Ideally, you not only do the whole thing in the first few weeks of the new year, but also continue to be active in 2023. .

As a little motivational aid, we'll show you how you can use little tricks to lose your Christmas pounds without having to restrict yourself too much. This way, the weight loss program won't become a burden and you'll see progress quickly.

Find your new comfort zone tip 1

You may have often heard that you should finally “get out of your comfort zone”. But from a purely biological point of view, this makes total sense and that's why your brain will rebel against it. It's more about creating a new comfort zone so that, for example, exercise is not seen as something unpleasant, but rather as fun.

Don't force yourself to do things that make you feel bad, but just try something new and see what it does to you. For example, you could go for a 10-minute walk in the morning before breakfast. You'll quickly collect a few hundred steps and get your mind going.

Don't set exercise and diet off against each other - tip 2

Maybe you’ve already argued: “Okay. I'll eat a chocolate bar now, but I'll do some exercise later." This is not something you should do if you want to lose a few pounds. Maybe something else comes up that prevents you from exercising. Or you calculated your calories incorrectly.

It's best if you both exercise and improve your diet. If you eat enough and varied, you will provide your body with all the important nutrients it needs. This is also necessary so that you are capable of sporting performance at all.

Find a sporting hobby - tip 3

Due to the fact that many sports activities cannot be practiced in the current situation, a certain lack of exercise has crept in for some people. Therefore, you should look for a (different) sporting hobby that you can practice regardless of applicable restrictions. One possibility is, for example, the games “Pokémon Go” or “Wizards Unite”, where you have to walk in the real world in order to make progress.

If you don't feel like virtual pocket monsters or magic, you can also try dancing. Have you always wanted to learn how to dance the shuffle properly? Then watch a few YouTube tutorials and get started! It will be a while until the next disco visit...

Don't overestimate the scale - tip 4

Yes. We said that here you will get tips on how to lose the Christmas kilos. However, it may be that you are burning a lot of fat, but the progress is not immediately visible on the scales. Your weight fluctuates throughout the day and depends primarily on what you have eaten. If you drink 1 liter of water, you initially weigh around 1 kilogram more. But that doesn't matter for the calorie balance.

Therefore, you should not use the display on your scale as the only indicator. You can determine whether you have already lost weight by looking at your waist circumference, for example. Alternatively, you can forgo calculation games entirely and simply pay attention to visual features. Besides, in the end it's just about feeling good.

Drink more & lose weight automatically - Tip 5

As already mentioned, water is calorie-neutral and therefore does not affect your weight in the long term. It is simply excreted again. However, you can actually lose weight by drinking water. How is this suppossed to work?

In any case, don't believe the rumor that drinking ice water will boost your calorie intake. This is nonsense. Instead, it's about drinking enough throughout the day to avoid cravings. If your stomach is always a little full, you are better protected from it.


We wish you a successful & sporty year 2023!

So you see: It's not necessary to radically change your lifestyle so that you can tackle your Christmas kilos. If you stick to a new fitness and nutrition plan, you can lose a lot of weight, but you have to stick to it consistently. Otherwise there is a risk of the well-known yo-yo effect and you will end up gaining weight again.

It's better if you generally make your everyday life a little more active and pay conscious attention to your diet. Above all, we at SportPlus help you to successfully tackle the sporting side. Our large range is sure to have the right fitness equipment and gadgets for you.
