Apolo and Subway Help Us Get Fit For the Holidays!

by Jennifer Sikora

 

If you remember, last year Jared ran the ING New York City Marathon, showing the world that eating Subway and exercising can be a healthy way to stay fit and trim.

Today, Apolo Ohno will be taking on that challenge as well. He has been vigorously training for the past year, completing his first half marathon a couple months ago in 1:40:59! Today is the day and all his hard work is about to pay off!

Because this is a special event for Apolo, Subway is going to be donating money for every mile he completes to the Special Olympics! You can show your support for Apolo by sending him a shout out on Twitter. Use the hashtag #goapolo and tweet your support for him @subwayfresh.

Now you may be asking, what does Apolo running a marathon have to do with the holidays? Well, taking care of ourselves is one of the most important Christmas gifts we can give to ourselves! Eating right, exercising, and doing our best to stay healthy. Just because it is the holiday doesn’t mean we should completely let ourselves go. Apolo gives us that encouragement to continue exercising and eating a balanced diet!

Giveaway Time!

2 lucky winners will be chosen to win a $50 gift card from Subway. To enter the contest, simply leave a comment letting us know how you intend to stay fit during the holidays. This giveaway is open to both U.S. and Canadian residents.

To keep fit during the holidays I will keep my normal eating habits during the majority of the holidays and allow myself to splurge on the dinners and parties we might attend. I will still pass on the treats offered up other places like work and the what you see at the grocery store

At my dorm room here we do lunges down our hallways, which equals to about 80 lunges one-way. During the holiday season, we really kick in and will do either down and half way back, or down and attempt to come all the way back!

I recently had Gastric Bypass surgery so staying fit during the holiday season will be pretty easy for me. I can only eat about 3oz of food at each meal and I have to make sure the first thing I eat at every meal is protein so I’ll be eating turkey/ham and very little of anything else. This will make it easy for me to skip the dessert table and head on off to the treadmill and work off what few calories I do ingest.

We have just moved to a new house where we now have a backyard! I am/and will be bundling up with my son and going out to play every day! When the weather is impossible, we turn on some music and dance for an hour. My new house also has 3 floors, and a lot of stairs. I am getting a lot of exercise in just running up and down doing laundry, cleaning, cooking, and playing with my toddler! I am hoping for a treadmill for Christmas too!

I have just left a vegan lifestyle that I led for 11 years! I am learning how to enjoy a variety of foods in a healthy way. Subway has been a great way to grab lunch or dinner on a Friday. It is quick, easy, healthy, and yummy! A much better choice than pizza! I would love to win a gift card, thank you for this opportunity!

I am going to focus on self discipline…and the willpower to maintain the urges to pig out on sooo much good food then feel ohh so miserable afterwards lol… Yes….moderation is the key. Eat a small plate with a –little– bit of everything …not huge amounts to where you need two plates to have everything and explode your tummy lol especially on the deserts …. Eat one dinner @ one place for sure –this was a bad experience on easter one year! And ofcourse still drink lots of water…and get an excersize routine going on now will sure make it easier during AND after the holidays. Take care all….and remember YOU CAN do it if you set your mind to it :-) :-)

To stay fit during this holiday season, I will remember to consume enough water, especially before meals; allow myself all opportunities to get more physical activity, including simple things like parking further from the entrance at shopping centers; and continuing to add whole grain food sources to my diet, as well as a variety of vegetable colors on my plate!

Staying fit is more challenging as we get older, but I am fortunate to live in FL where the weather still allows for nice family walks with the kids, plus I enjoy riding my indoor stationary bike and eating lots of FL fruits and veggies. We adore SUBWAY and do not need an excuse to take a quick trip 1/2 mile around the corner to grab our favorite healthy subs! :)

To stay fit this holiday season, I intend to exercise as well as watch what I eat. I think as long as you don’t go crazy with treats, you can indulge a little. When our family gets together we always have veggies, fruits, and salads before dinner so that the children and the adults can fill up on the healthier things first.

I am a vegetarian and plan to eat a lot more vegetables this winter than I normally do. Want to try to stay away from just potatoes and pasta like I normally crave in the cold months!

I just try to not over indulge and watch my snacks. One day a week I will allow myself to go a little overboard.
