Holiday Weight Gain

by Anne Middleton, on December 16th, 2015

Conventional wisdom has been that the average person gains anywhere between 5-10 lbs. over the holiday season, but that’s not the case.  Researchers found that most only gained 1.05 lb., while those who were already overweight were prone to gain more.   Still that’s no reason to eat some extra artichoke dip, have a little more pecan pie and an extra cocktail.   Stay active by investing in some shoes to help you keep moving this season.

Here’s our favorites:

The Women’s Adirondack Tall by UGG will get you playing in the snow.  Rated to withstand frosty temperatures of up to -20C, this boot will keep your feet warm while sledding, skiing, snowball fighting and more.  It’s easy to hole up in your house and eat when it’s cold, but this boot by UGG will get outside and moving.  Be sure to look at their other winter gear too to keep warm and shop and save with our codes with UGG. 

Ladies who live in warmer areas will appreciate the Classic Cowboy Boot by UGG.  Line dance or clean the barn in these boots and work up a sweat doing it.  However, you won’t sweat over the price when you sign up for emails from Boston Proper, because you’ll get 10% off your order.   

For the fellas, Converse’s Sneaker Boots, like the Chuck Taylor All Star Tekoa, are great for getting outside in frosty temperatures.  Even just doing chores can be helpful to men fighting the battle of the bulge.  Almost 3 in 4 men (74 percent) are considered to be overweight or obese.  Therefore, it’s very important for men to be vigilant about their diets and active during the holiday season and every day.  Converse offers great hoodies and other gear for fun in the snow and more too, so shop with our codes. 

The holidays are here and on January 1 you can bet the gyms will be clamoring for your attention (and your money).  Be proactive and stay active this holiday season and do it with great shoes.  We’ve got codes to help you save on all kinds of footwear, so you’ll never sweat over price.  Buy and save today!
