Teresa Giudice And Her Trainer Reveal Their Top 10 Ways to Stay Fit During the Holidays

Say what you want about Real Housewives of New Jersey's Queen Teresa Giudice of Paterson and her lies, fairy tales and delusions of grandeur but this forty-year-old mother of four knows how to keep herself in shape! Teresa and her trainer, Nicole Greco-Peepas sat down with Celebuzz to give their top ten tips on how to keep that body looking right and tight during the holiday season!

1. Only drink when you’re at social occasions. It’s easy to enjoy a glass of wine (or two!) when you’re wrapping presents, cooking or even baking, but don’t drink by yourself.
2. Don’t mix it up. Mixed alcoholic drinks  have too much sugar in them, and you’ll pay for it the next morning.
3. Have small meals throughout the day.The ideal number is six — and each meal should include protein and a complex carbohydrate.
4. Eat something before you go to a holiday party. Arriving on an empty stomach will cause you to overeat.
5. Watch your portions! Don’t load up on two or three helpings of stuffing or pie — your waistline won’t be forgiving.
6. Work it out! Try to get to the gym for at least 30 minutes, aiming for a mix of cardio and heavy weight training.

7. Vary your cardio. If you’re hitting the treadmill, mix up both the speed — try walking and running — and the incline. Stay away from the long, steady jog.
8. Don’t make excuses. If you can’t make it to the gym, you can still work out with home exercises. Try jumping jacks, lunges, squats, burpees, full body sit-ups and push-ups.
9. Take your act on the road. If the weather is nice, take the kids or the dog to the park. There may be stations set up for a circuit workout; if not, walk for an hour and enjoy the scenery.
10. Remember: staying fit isn’t just about the holidays. Says Greco-Peepas: “It’s not just what you do or eat from Christmas to New Year’s Eve that matters. It is what you do or eat from the New Year to Christmas.”
