Holiday Workout Video and Top 10 Tips To Prevent Weight Gain

1. Limit your intake of calorie laden beverages. Eggnog, champagne, mochas, and hot chocolate all have one thing in common: they are packed with empty calories – avoid these beverages and load up on water instead.

2. Officially schedule exercise into your calendar. It’s just too easy to let workouts slide this time of year – make a commitment to exercise and keep it.

3. Forgo the goodie-making. By keeping your home free from holiday treats you will undoubtedly gain fewer pounds. However, if you simply have to make those Christmas cookies then chew gum during the baking process to prevent snacking.

4. Have fun being active. Winter is a great time to burn calories outdoors. Go skiing for a day or take the kids sledding. No snow in sight? No problem. Take a brisk bike ride or power walk through the mall.

5. Use healthy ingredients. Your holiday meal will taste even better when you seek out fresh, organic and low fat ingredients – and you’ll feel better too.

6. Learn to compromise. Dying to have that peppermint mocha? Go ahead – but have it with nonfat milk and pass on the whipped cream.

7. Don’t go hungry. The holidays are a dangerous time for your metabolism. Focus on eating small, balanced meals every few hours to keep your metabolism going strong.

8. Enjoy a sample. No one says you have to completely avoid the appetizers and desserts at your holiday party – just enjoy in moderation.

9. Focus on family, not food. Let’s face it, this time of year is big on two things: family and food. Make an effort to place your focus primarily on your family.

10. Stick to your strategy. The best way to gain weight over the holidays is to approach them without a plan. Using the above tips, write down the ways in which you plan to avoid weight gain this year. Then periodically check up on yourself.

So there you have it…make this that “special” time of year when you exercise both your body and your self-control. You can do it!

Christina Milian Workout Strip-a-robics

DOB: September 26, 1981
Christine Flores , better known by her stage name Christina Milian, is an American R&B and pop singer-songwriter, record producer, dancer, actress, and model. Born in Jersey City, New Jersey, Milian moved to Los Angeles when she was 13 years old, desiring to be an actress. By the age of 17, Milian had begun writing songs to help obtain a recording contract. Milian has released three studio albums, and has finished recording a fourth, Elope, which is scheduled for a late 2009 or early 2010 release.

Christina Milian has a sexy way of staying in shape – ‘Strip-a-robics’.

The ‘Dip It Low’ singer has revealed she honed her stunning figure by attending raunchy aerobics classes, which involved pole-dancing and seductive moves.

She confessed: “Last year, me and four friends went to ‘Strip-a-robics’. It was so much fun! It was an hour and a half so you got a real workout but at the same time, it was very sexual – it was so hot.”

But when Christina tried to recreate the steamy moves in the privacy of her own home, she found it difficult without her own lap-dancing pole.

She admitted: “I tried to do it at home but it didn’t work – I need to put a pole in my bedroom, I think!”

Christina has also revealed she would strip off on screen – but not for another ten years.

Milian works out six days a week. Her workout includes 30 minutes of running on the treadmill, then she will do situps, lunges and squats.

The teeny 5ft 2 star admits she has a weakness for junk food. When asked what her biggest vice is, Christina replied “Cheetos, Oreos, everything terrible!” Christina had to start watching what she eats after suffering an allergic reaction to radishes. “I had hives everywhere for a month! I thought, I can’t control this, but I can control the way I look and be fit.”

Christina Milian knows a bit about dieting, when she was 16 she was quite chubby and lost a total of 25 pounds.“My friend Jessica Biel taught me about healthy eating. We would have beans and apples as a snack.”
