The human body needs to work out in order to enhance your metabolism, and burn the food we eat.
But during this cold season, it’s just so hard to even lift a finger. It’s like the bed invites you all the time, and the fridge keeps calling you. At this point, you’ve probably overindulged with unhealthy foods like cookies, chocolates, pizza, alcohol, and all the holiday food.

Here’s What Happens to Your Body When You Take a Break from Working Out
Let’s get real: This time of year, you’re bound to miss a workout or two. Or, okay, maybe 31 in a row. Between the dreary days, back-to-back holiday parties, and stomachs so stuffed it’s best that no one moves too quickly, the motivation to squeeze in exercise has a tendency to just fall flat.

It’s possible to take a break from working out without losing muscle, even for a few weeks, because the body considers that as a recovery period. But a year? Come on. That’s not acceptable. It may do worse than making your abs shrink and stocking fats throughout your body.
There are lots of other ways you can work your body out, and they won’t even need the gym or any equipment. These include walking, taking the stairs, and more. You can also do squats or planks when you’re bored or something, like while watching some boring TV show or scrolling through your social media sites.
If you decide to take a few days or weeks off, just make sure that your holiday diet is still on track. Just because you stopped your workout routine for a while doesn’t mean the healthy diet should stop.
