Watch out for those Holiday Calories: Holiday Indulgences in Perspective to Exercise

The holidays are a time for celebration, but many times we end the holiday season bloated, with a few extra lbs to work off with the new years resolution.  While a few indulgences can be made up for, many times the Christmas dinner feast has way more calories than you could even imagine.

Below we’ve listed nine seasonal indulgences along with the calories (which can vary by recipe, but can be trusted to be approximate), along with the amount of time it would take a 180lbs person running a 12 minute per mile pace to burn off that serving, to add a little perspective to the extra calories on Christmas day.

We also included a few tips at the end of ways to manage portion sizes and reduce total calories consumed.  Enjoy your holiday feasts, but add some moderation so you can get a head start for your new years resolutions!


Gingerbread cookie1 large 3oz cookie = 340 calories

Equals 31.2 minutes running


Egg Nog

one cup = 343 calories

Equals 31.2 minutes running


Candied Yams

one serving depending on recipe approximately = 360 calories

Equals 33 minutes running


Beef Wellington

one serving = 744 calories

Equals 68.4 minutes

Have one serving of everything above, and a 180 lbs runner running at a 12min/mile pace would need to run for 5.84 hours to burn off the calories of these decadent Christmas menu items.  These calories really add up when one ignores portion sizes are ignored because, “it’s a holiday,” or when one allows themselves to continue refilling a glass of egg nog or hot buttered rum, or stands near the desert tray.

Here are some tips for managing your holiday calories:

  • In order to reduce the total number or calories, serve yourself a taste of sweet or rich food, rather than a full serving, or multiple servings.
  • Fill your plate with low glycemic vegetables.  Better yet, if you are planning the menu, offer some fresh or steamed vegetables to have a low calorie option.
  • Reduce your total number of alcoholic drinks consumed.  While not detailed on this list, beer, wine, and mixed drinks can easily add up the calories.  Reduce the total number of alcoholic drinks consumed by having water or a sparkling water mocktail between each alcoholic drink.

Health Talk: Jumpstart the New Year with 8 Ways to Reach Your 2018 Health Goals!

Tuesday, January 9, 2018 at 6 PM – 7 PM

Each new year we set resolutions for ourselves with the best of intentions to become a better, stronger, more successful version of ourselves, to only lose sight and feel worse about those goals amid a box of Valentines chocolates, a spring break trip, or summer 5k goal.

In a presentation led by Dr Brittany Gentile and Michelle Gorny, a certified massage therapist, yoga and Pilates instructor, we will discuss setting goals, and creating habits (from the kitchen to the gym) to achieve your 2018 resolutions.

A lot of resolutions are derailed by an injury or physical or emotional stress. We will discuss ways to manage this factor, and there will be demonstrations including yoga poses to destress.

Take an hour to take care of yourself and join us for a free event and gain some lifestyle habits to help you reach your resolutions and empower you to a healthy 2018!
Please RSVP on either Facebook or Eventbrite.
